ooof!,

it might look decent to some of you, but on my 3.4 GHz 4 core windows 7 machine it will not display the work area properly to my screen reader, the menu's can only be gotten to by a bunch of screen reader acrobatics, and it mangled five of the words I typed and stuck random letters from them at the bottom of the page (or at least I think that's what that was, I can say that it was connected to note pro, which in my opinion is no go not a pro anything, not even a half way there item.

Jarte is by far a better product, the only thing I would have liked to use this for is I have a number of .wri documents that were on an old drive of mine and it might have made a decent translator, but if I can't see half the document, or access the menu's to save it as... then its a trasher.

sorry folks, but it is what it is, (*holding my nose pinched shut*)

I am just floored by most everyone's opinions today and subsequently compelled to come on here and leave a comment... I need editors to all kinds of remedial tasks for work.. make a list for this.. a silly graph for this.. fax this, but first edit it etc. after reading all the comments I was not expecting anything worth while. I am glad I installed it and tried it for myself. I was able to make all kinds of excel type forms with images and charts and tables in seconds (adding content one finger at a time would have taken me forever..i am talking about just creating the form I was desiring)... was very pleased with the few templates that were included..from standard fax cover page to in house memo.. just select edit print.. man my life just got easy :) obviously if I was a professional assistant or something of that nature I might require stuff not included.. but for the daily grind and my needed "memo and fax and list thing"..this was quite flawless. very much liked it. Like # 13 Thomas Roberts comments.. I did not select this as my default during installation.
Thanks GOTD & Crystal Office Systems for a very useful tool. Definitely a keeper :)

This is the editor used in the Maple outliner from the same company we've had a few days ago.

Due to its size and the time it takes to load, I'll never consider this as a replacement to Notepad as the default text editor/viewer used in many applications. My Windows Notepad has been replaced a long time ago.

But, besides its shortcomings (see comment #18), I'll keep it because it can save to HTML and preview those files. Perfect for a contextual menu.

Hello dan,
I can't guess What went wrong with your trial to edit any of your Pdfs with Ableword. But It really worked smoothly for me and many probably. Make sure your Pdfs are text based , not scanned pdf . Ableword can't edit any scanned pdf / image based pdf as it doesn't include OCR Technology. To be able to edit a scanned pdf document you will need to use OCR software. See How to Use AbleWord as a PDF Editor .

For coders the preferred program is free Notepad++. It updates a lot, and is best for preserving conditional items like = and such that are often dropped using Word and sometimes the built in wordpad when copying the code from script to web. The conditionals will be there in the coded script but vanish when pasted into web window.

And how much does Word cost these days? Notepad is inadequate. Something like this program is needed for basic text editing. Personally, I am Word-free for the first time in years, with Libre Office for formal docs and EditPad Lite for simple text. If your needs are straight-forward, a program like this might do very well.

I am looking for a way to swap the current character with the next character.

We often make this typo e.g.

"teh" instead of "the"

"nto" instead of "not"

A rare word processor has this feature built-in.

Hey Dual-boot here! I installed & registered cleanly on both of my physical partitions (Win 8.1.3 & Win10 Build 10130). Opened about 30 docs (with & without pics and charts) and there was a little problem with justification (spacing within rows & columns) barring that, each document came up in good time & showed me pretty much the complete doc along with the info inside. I also did NOT pic any of the attributes in the beginning, as I used MS Word & do not want to screw-up what is already set up in my computer. Seems to work for me, & for me it is a keeper - I will try it over the next while & offer better suggestions after that.

Thanks GOTD & Crystal Office Systems for a nice little gem, since I am in the throws of starting retirement, I still jot down a lot of memos & letters & notes, so thank you for today's offering & HAGD.

I have a number of text editors similar to this, but the problem with all of them, is that all of the marvelous features created on your documents, are lost when those same documents are sent to another computer, unless it also has the same program installed.

Not so with Jarte (read replies to comment 2 above).

Anything I do in Jarte shows up in any other word processor I've used.

Reply   |   Comment by bart  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

@CJ Cotter: "I have a number of text editors similar to this, ..."
There are two categories of editors: text editors and document (for lack of a better word), editors. NotePro is a "document" editor.

Text editors ONLY edit and produce pure text files. The files only contain the document's characters - no formatting info other than line terminators, tabs, spaces and the like. While font choices and alignments are usually available, they apply to the entire document and are not retained as part of the file. One can easily read the raw disk file.

OTOH, "document" editors allow formatting of individual characters, lines, paragraphs, etc but at the expense of embedded format controls that are application specific and make the raw disk file unreadable (such as rtf, dox, htm, etc).

There is a need and place for both.

I have had some very good software from GOTD and also from alternatives suggested in comments, so I would hate to see alternatives barred
For word processing and other office-related tasks I use open source software. LibreOffice is my choice, free and cross-compatible with MS Office, PDF, MS Works and more.

Reply   |   Comment by tongal  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Libre Office and today's offer, Note Pro, are a completely different kind of shoe. Libre Office is a huge slow bloatware. And a Wordpad replacement like this is usually very fast and easy to handle.
If you're really looking for a good full blown yet fast and easy to use word processor I suggest you try out Softmaker Office. There is a free version available.

Reply   |   Comment by Spiritogre  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

LibreOffice Writer is a "word-processor" program with full set of "ms-office" properties, many of them never used by an average user - but that doesent mean that it is a bloatware, it is just unnecessarily complicated for the simpliest tasks. LibreOffice includes also other modules - Excel an Powerpoint alternatives, database, image editor (you dont need to install those if you dont need them).
on the other side of the scale there are notepad alternatives and "programmers editors" working with "text only" files (some of them really sophisticated - there is another set of features not needed for the simply tasks).
this gotd seems to be in the same category as MS Word and LibreOffice Writer - it is just simplier, easier to use, maybe a bit quicker. i believe it is a good choice for many of us, but as a Notepad replacement as well as MS-Word replacement it is too "stupid" for me - i didnt test it, i just looked od the sw description to see that. but maybe for 80% of us it will be a perfectly sufficient word processor.
ps
LibreOffice is slow? i have poor hw but i dont find it slow - few seconds to start the program (if it is not "pre-loaded") or open a huge file are no problem for me, during the work there are no delays and i am much slower then any sw...

There are plenty of text editors around these days but none have the power or versatility of an old DOS program, namely PC-Write which is still available at the following link:-

https://winworldpc.com/download/72F72A7D-46B2-11E4-8D58-7054D21A8599

It had three areas where it is exceptionally useful and they are its find and replace function, able to handle the full range of ASCII characters and the ability to copy a block. This copy is different than the Windows command in that blocks can be copied say from the middle of the text page.

For anyone who wants try this wonderful piece of work help will most certainly be necessary and is obtained by pressing the F1 key, the program itself is called ED.EXE.

More and quite comprehensive information is available at the following page:-
http://www.atarimagazines.com/compute/issue57/review_pc_write.html

To give you an idea of its versatility; during my postgraduate work a database of network traffic was created but the converter to extract the information to Excel produced false information.
Using the find and replace command it was possible to extract the data into a format that Excel could accept was obtained using this program.

And so until some equally useful program more suitable for Windows is available I'll pass.

Wow ... does this programme bring back some memories of my early PC days....

"Fortunately, if you have more than 128K of memory and are using DOS 2.0 or higher, you can keep the editor and your text in memory while running the printer program"

Agreeing with XP-Man 100%. I used/put PCWrite on many PCs at the hospital I worked at as Director. Yes, I paid the shareware fee for each one installed. IBM's editor was about $400 if I remember. Qedit by Semware was another that i grew to use for myself there. To me it was PCWrite on Steroids.

I digress. These old programs are often released into Freeware. This Giveaway seems to be just fine for an editor and being free today is "wunnerful". Thanks. Going Back to the nursing home now... on my Golf Cart.

The program is considered abandonware in that the company that produced it no longer exists, so no idea where you could possibly pay the registration.:-)
The man who wrote it (Bob Wallace founder of Quicksoft) and many other useful programs died in 2002.

The download from the first link I offered appears to fully function.
Would be great if he could be run in a DOS window say as in the UltraEdit, which unfortunately I do not have.

Please note you need to press F1 twice to get the help command and then the down arrow to step through the various function descriptions.

"This copy is different than the Windows command in that blocks can be copied say from the middle of the text page."

Just a note if anyone is interested - MS Word can copy blocks of text too. Simply hold down Alt while marking text and it will copy the marked area. Occasionally useful.

Microsoft Word has a superb find and replace function, Word 6 in Windows 3.1 probably being its finest because of the excellence of Word Basic.

Unfortunately, it cannot handle control characters and this is where PC-Write is required.

Are you sure the "block copy" is program specific and not just a MS-DOS window specific mark area then press enter to copy the highlighted region?

For text based format manipulation I find PFE32 Programmers File Editor 32bit, imensly usable for using Find and replace and recording macro's to convert a CSV database table export into say a SQL backup file to regenerate a database from one program using say sqlite3 to ms-access compatible mdb.

http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/staff/steveb/cpaap/pfe/pfefiles.htm

It's not intended as a word processor, obviously and is very win32s, windows95 in look and feel but it allowed me to transmogrify many a data file into a format I needed and saved having to write a program to do it for me.
You could simply select the text you want find, including whitspace characters like line feeds, carrige returns and tabs etc and the Find dats field would be auto filled with any special encoding for the white-space characters, one could then fill in the replace data box based on your needs and the encoded white-space charcters...

Actually, there are. At least one in particular has all that functionality and more. Namely, NoteTab from Fookes Software (freeware and paidware versions available). It is a text editor that has block mode cut & paste, Find & replace for the full ANSI set (including control chars), supports RegEx, builtin column summation, expression evaluation, spell checker, multi-tabbed UI and capitalization (all, title, sentence, invert), to name just a few features. But, most importantly, it includes a scripting language far beyond simple macros that allows one to automate almost any task - not just text editing. It is my second "must have/most used application" - ZTree being the first.
--------
@TK: "Are you sure the “block copy” is program specific and not just a MS-DOS window specific mark area then press enter to copy the highlighted region?"

In a Windows Shell/DOS console window, a "block copy" functionality is builtin. However, there is no "paste". There is no native support for block editing in Windows programs - any such support is application unique.
--------
@Phaedron: "And does it capitalize first words in sentences?"

See above regarding Notetab.

Hi all, installed on win8.1 64 bit, no problem. I haven't thoroughly tested all features, but note it saves to the most common formats, .doc, .docx, .wri, .txt e.t.c, and can convert to pdf. I shall continue to use, especially as I don't have 'word'. Admittedly, I have viewed in the past, alternatives offered by reviewers, I am, however a little concerned that this might deter some software houses from future submissions. This is a great website, offering software I would never have come across, so thanks for all your efforts, keep up the good work. Perhaps the alternatives could be discussed elsewhere on the site, this is also helpful info, but shouldn't detract from the original offering. Many thanks again.

Hi, neat and light-weight little Program that has more features than regular Notepad, and I don't think it pretends to be anything else, especially a replacement for a fully-featured 'Writing Office'!?

So as a better equipped Text Editor at hand on one's Desktop - serves its purpose just fine. Has a decent list of regular and fun Fonts, which also place themselves nicely into Windows-based mailing Programs and Photo Software (always glad to see new additions in my Corel PSP:) What's more - offers and performs spell-check quite well. Anything written here or created can be saved and copied/pasted elsewhere (font, colour, pic) 'as is'.

Thanks to CrystalOffice and GOTD.
Easily installed and registered.
This software has built-in spell check.
It can handle Unicode.
But (maybe) cannot reassign key shortcuts.
It has Quick Inserts - which is similar to the Clip Collection in Editpad Lite.
I use Editpad Lite and can confirm that it does NOT have built-in spell checker.
When you first install the software, remember to NOT allow it to become the default software to open several file extension types.

Test Result: Very Good.

This software is the "word processor"=text editor of the Maple, we have had some day before. With some differences. The spell check installation does not work on my computer:

Uninstalled via reboot. No clear opinion…"

While we're on the subject in this comment thread, I may as well add Jarte to the mix. It is very powerful and comes in free and Pro versions. This one has a direct tie-in to Nitro PDF so that you can directly save .rtf's and immediately produce a .pdf from the same file without closing the window. You can have multiple files open concurrently, without straining your computer's resources, and can have pictures directly in the text without saving them first onto your hard drive.

I use Edit Pad Lite for free from editpadpro.com and it appears to have all the features of NotePro.

"Appears to have?" So, you are promoting a different, commercial software (with a price tag) as an "alternative," and you haven't even tried this? NO THANKS!

James, Why are you so quick to criticise?
1: William didn't say that he didn't try it. You're assuming this to be the case.

2: He says he is happy using the 'Lite' version of a different software, which (he also states) is free. I would hardly call this promoting commercial software.
3: If you feel you need to reply, please don't be so rude. What you've said doesn't add to the conversation, and just makes you look petty and angry.

I'm not saying there can't be some polite disagreement in the comments section, but telling someone off just for the sake of it should not happen. Normally, the correct response to a post one doesn't like is to ignore it and move on. (The only reason I'm posting this publicly is because I think we all need to reminded sometimes that the people we reply to are real people, and a little politeness goes a long way.)

As for myself, Thanks for today's offer, GAOTD and Crystal Office Systems. I'll give it a miss this this time though. :)

Interesting. You criticize Gorman for using the word "appear" yet you fail Reading Comprehension 101. He clearly stated he was using a freeware version which you completely passed over - not a "with a price tag" version as you wrongly accused him. And yes, it is completely legitimate for him to pass on something based on specs as is his right and, again, as he clearly stated. That's what specs are for. If the specs for what he already has is no better than what is being offered, why waste the time, risk and effort to DL something else?

@James: I use Edit Pad Lite quite often and consider it an excellent program. As WWG points out, it is free.
