Notepad has always been a useful tool in manipulating texts, but its reliability was always over-passed by its lack of features. In case you need a free replacement for this basic text editor, TED Notepad is the one. With almost 312 text-processing functions, innovative features and timesaving tools all wrapped in a simple light-weight interface this app is nothing else but the Swiss knife for any casual user or even programmer.
Every feature can be activated by hotkeys; all designed for quick advanced editing. Features like Line numbers, Multi-level undo, Regular expressions, Unicode, UTF-8, Unix and Mac file types support, two advanced searches, indentation, word auto-complete, enhanced clipboarding (supports up to 9 clipboards at the same time), extensive statistics, optional favourites menu, case conversions, characters translating, quoting and enclosing lines, reversing (words, lines), unique lines and duplicates counting, have their own hotkey for instant access.
The filters architecture for user plugins and console applications brings TED Notepad to a new level of customization compared to the basic Notepad. For experienced users, the command-line is a necessary tool for advanced control and manipulation. The application can be set to stay on top or go to system tray, save window placement or change to customizable dual font.
TED Notepad is extremely light-weight and portable. It fits on any USB flash disk and loads instantly with no installation required.
