TextPad is an application that can be used if you need a replacement for Notepad++, a tool that can edit your webpage or a programming IDE.

Key Features

  • Possibility to edit files up to the limits of 32-bit virtual memory and simultaneously (with up to 2 views per file).
  • Its powerful editor macros also enable search and replace an engine that is using UNIX-style regular expressions.
  • Featured with all basic tools for editing such as cut, copy and paste capabilities, TextPad can also perform other actions, such as case shifting the selected text and blocking indented, as well as transposing characters, words and lines, splitting text into several lines and more.
  • Printing options can be customized depending on your needs. You can preview text before printing and configure headers and footers as well as page breaks if needed.
  • TextPad offers a DDE interface to other tools. That way, the editor can detect when an open file has been modified by another tool.
  • TextPad can also manage and complete files and texts, view files using hexadecimal display format, record keyboard macro with up to 16 active macros, etc.

Is It Free?

This is a free trial version. If you decide to keep it after the trial, the single-user license will cost you $27.

Easy and useful alternative to Notepad++
there is no english version..Its all french....
I have been using TextPad for years, but I am being forced to switch, and that is because of lack of unicode support. They CLAIM to support unicode but it is not true. TextPad will read a UTF-8 file AS LONG AS it does not contain any characters outside of the 8-bit ascii range. If you file has a SINGLE character in it above 256, it will distort the file by replacing that character with something less than 256. I edit a lot of XML files produced by web applications that allow users to type in text. If one user pastes a text that includes one special character ... a smiley face, or a heart, or a note symbol ... you have a UTF-8 encoded text files that TextPad can not edit. What bothers me most is that they CLAIM to support unicode. I don't care too much about editing those parts of the text ... but it is critical that I can read a file with those character, and write it out, without it being distorted. Simply preserving the character above 256 would be fine, but TextPad will not do this.
i want text pad software but now not download properly
