TextPad (32bit)7.2.0

Whether you simply need a powerful replacement for Notepad, a tool for editing your web pages, or a programming IDE, TextPad does what you want, the way you would expect.

TextPad has been implemented according to the Windows XP user interface guidelines, so great attention has been paid to making it easy for both beginners and experienced users. In-context help is available for all commands, and in-context menus pop-up with the right mouse button. The Windows multiple document interface allows multiple files to be edited simultaneously, with up to 2 views on each file. Text can be dragged and dropped between files.

The text tool requires little drive space, but comes with a surprising array of unique features that are especially useful for programming tasks.

It offers excellent customization features, letting you create formatting and code coloring specific to whatever language you're programming in. TextPad works best for programmers and other people who need a full-featured tool for plain text.

Key features:

  • Huge files can be edited, up to the limits of 32-bit virtual memory. See Specifications for the actual limits.
  • Supports Universal Naming Convention (UNC) style names, and long file names with spaces.
  • CUA compliant keyboard commands.
  • English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish user interfaces.
