    EditPad

    Does anyone know of anything else like EditPad? Does anyone use/like EditPad.

    Find it at JGSOFT

    I like his idea of software without the bloat. I find it interesting that I had both EditPad and HTML-Kit on my system, and was thinking if only EditPad had a spell check. Then I saw EditPad Pro, but realized all this time I had HTML-Kit, it can work on text files and has a good spell check and thesaurus to boot.

    Yes, I use EditPad all of the time. I got it when it was freeware and continue to use it. I have it in my SendTo menu so that I can just open any kind of document with it. I see that there is now a ForFee version but I like the free version so I have stuck with it.

    NoteTab Pro www.notetab.com Is amazing. There are both free and registered versions. Tons of features and plugins. I can't live without it. Editpad is cool too.

    Re: EditPad

    I have just downloaded Editpad and will give it a try
    What I usually use is Notepad Plus 1.1
    also available at www.download.com
    It features multiple documents and large file support and is a drop-in replacement for the Windows notepad.

    TextPad

    My personal recommendation for a Win32-native text editor would be TextPad, which can be obtained from http://www.textpad.com/. Regex search-and-replace, syntax highlighting, spellcheck, custom actions, macros, &c. Overall, the app has an extremely well-crafted, solid feel.

    TextPad also has the only useful implementation of the Win2k transparency API calls that I've yet seen - the search-and-replace dialog becomes partially transparent when one clicks on the document window.

    But don't forget NT Emacs.

    Re: TextPad

    TextPad is my favorite too. I use it all the time to build the Lounge.

    Re: TextPad

    I've read this thread with great interest, as I'm looking for a new notepad replacement. But I don't think any of the replacements mentioned thus far will do the trick.

    Here is my wish list:
    1) FREEWARE
    2) Small in size - must be well under 1MB (it's an text editor, not a 3D paint program!)!!!
    3) No HTML interpretation or anything else that may cause a security problem - just a good old text editor.
    4) Handle files of any reasonable size (up to, say 16mb) - I still can't believe Windows ships with a default notepad that can't do this without loading a secondary app
    5) Simple search and replace functionality with standard shortcuts (for crying outloud)
    6) Written in C or assembly (no Visual Basic!!!)
    7) Reliable and stable
    8) Can handle extended character sets (ASCII>127)
    9) Has a home page on the internet (for updates)

    Man... what a picky you-know-what for wanting something for free![img]/w3timages/icons/doh.gif[/img]

    Re: TextPad

    I've used notespad and liked it. I can't compare it with textpad.

    Maybe if I spent a little less time in the lounge I could check it OUT!

    Re: TextPad

    I used Notespad back in 96-97. The version I downloaded in the end of 1997 was the last version made.

    Sometimes older software has trouble with the new versions of the Rich Edit Controls and other common DLL's, so I hesitate to use an editor that hasn't been updated in so long (and won't be updated, according to the web site).

    I remember it being very good, but overkill for what I am looking for now. If I remember correctly, the actual resident footprint was well over 1mb... but it's been a long time, so my memory might be off.

    It's a good suggestion... but I'm still interested in hearing more...[img]/w3timages/icons/kiss.gif[/img]

    Re: TextPad

    Suprised [img]/w3timages/icons/yikes.gif[/img] I haven't seen Notepad+ from Rogsoft mentioned yet.http://www.mypeecee.org/rogsoft/

    Meets most of wish list earlier. 1) FREE 2) C coded 3) MDI 4)Stable -- least I've never tanked it. 5) I've opened MB sized files in it.

    The search gets flaky on files > 64K [img]/w3timages/icons/sad.gif[/img]

    Hasn't had an update in awhile, either. Author says because it really doesn't need any since he wants to avoid bloat. It weighs in at 423 KB.

    A drop-in replacement for M$ Notepad and fixes most of that program's lacks.

    Re: TextPad

    I use NotePad+, but it's the first replacement that I've used for Notepad, so I don't know how it compares to the others.

    For those that have used TextPad, EditPad, or NotesPad--do they load quickly & use almost no resources?

    So many choice--so little time![img]/w3timages/icons/thinks.gif[/img]

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: TextPad

    I've also been looking at Metapad and WinVI. They both look interesting (from their web pages). I haven't had a chance to download either, however.

    There are also a couple of editors (The Gun, and I think Super Editor) written in assembly language available on nonage (www.nonags.com). They could be interesting as well. Again, not enough time for my to play with them.

    As for RogSoft, I think I liked it ok when I tried it in the past, but that bug with searching is a drag.

    Re: EditPad

    I agree that NoteTab is great. I could not live without it. The latest version however is 4.83. You might want to drop by http://www.notetab.com.

    PS: If you really have v1.1 and you do not want to re-register a full version then NoteTab Lite v4.83 will still be miles better than what you were using before.
