How we edit, revise, and manipulate text varies with the individual, each has a preferred text editor. I use several different text editors according to the specified format of the original document but I find myself continually going back to a text editor called NoteTab (Not to be confused with Notepad) developed by Eric Fookes .

This simple but highly versatile text editor has so many interesting functions that it would be impossible for me to name them all in this short reveiw. Here is a list of just a few of the functionsI find very useful:
  1. Each open document has a tab at the top of the screen making it easy to switch documents.
  2. 11 handy Libraries at the bottom of the screen which enhance your ability to deal with a host of different types of text editing: HTML, CSS, Utilities, FTP, and even Smilies
  3. Find and Replace is, of course indispensable and NoteTab does well here.
  4. The Options Panel is where the power of this app resides. Spend some time here if you want to realize the full potential of NoteTab.
The list of functions goes on:
  • View in Browser
  • Strip html
  • Text Case Change
  • Sort options galore
  • Text Statistics
This last one acts like a mini concordance builder which I have found very useful for determining keyword relevancy in a Web page. There are many, many more but I think you get the idea. I would suggest you try it yourself and that's where the good news comes in!
**There is a free version!**

Of course the paid versions have a far greater range of functionality. While a lot of these functions can be found in other text editors, none are so intuitive and easy to learn. I truly mean it when I say this is simply the best text editor I have found by far. NoteTab is simple, but powerful ... and the price is right!
