EditPlus: A Powerful Text Editor

Click here to download EditPlus, the best text editor I have found

EditPlus is a small but powerful shareware text editor with some handy features for writers and editors. Easy menu commands trim trailing spaces at the end of paragraphs or change leading spaces to tabs. You can also very easily change the file format from PC to UNIX to Mac and e-mail or FTP the file directly from within the editor.

The program also has many features specifically designed for the task of writing and editing content for Web pages. The HTML toolbar includes buttons for common tags such as bold, italics, and new paragraph. Additionally, the editor highlights all programming syntax with colored fonts, so you can easily separate content from HTML tags. Another button on the toolbar opens the document in an internal browser—or in your favorite external browser—allowing you to quickly preview your document as you write. Alternatively, if you receive an HTML file to edit and don't want or need all the tags, EditPlus has a command to strip the document of all HTML tags, leaving you with simple text.

You'll find some old friends among the features, too, including alignment and indent control, spell check, word count (plus byte count), and the ability to record and use macros. You can change the case of a selection of the entire document or view line breaks, spaces, and tabs. Word users may be familiar with the ability to split a document into two panes, enabling you to view two separate parts of a document at once. EditPlus also features this but adds the ability to split a document into four panes. The standard find-and-replace feature is beefed up, allowing searches over multiple documents at the same time. Plus, you can search using regular expressions, meaning, for example, you can find all words starting with "th" that follow a "new paragraph" character.

There are some absent elements that users of more robust programs like MS Word may miss. For example, since this is a simple-text editor, there is no way to use italics, bold, or underline (other than HTML). But one huge advantage this program has over these larger editors is its relative lack of memory usage. I can literally watch the memory-usage stat increase as I type in MS Word; EditPlus stays comparably steady, with only a slight increase now and then—and it's also much less buggy than these feature-laden porkers.
