EditPad Pro Testimonials—What The People Say

Paul Nystrom

"I have used RegExBuddy and EditPad Pro for years. Yes, there have been occasional bugs. Jan (and the user community) have always been very responsive and helpful.

"What I find, much more often, is that I am amazed at the power and flexibility of these tools. Jan has done a fantastic job of anticipating my needs and building those features before I need them.

"I use a wide variety of tools—both purchased and open-source. Jan had provided the best support of any of them and I really appreciate the "one person's design" of the tools."

1 May 2014, California, USA

Ian Thurston

"I find new things to love about this product daily. I just rigged WinSCCP to use EditPad Pro as its default editor, and I am now hot-editing remote files on a Linux box with Editpad Pro. Thanks for a great product."

23 December 2013, Ontario, Canada

David Bartlett

"I am extremely happy [with EditPad Pro]. I am a programmer myself and I would say this is a masterpiece. Also to Jan, I want to thank you for the customer support which is amazing. Just how you find the time to respond personally—and quickly—to all the stuff on the forum is incredible. Kudos! keep up the good work."

Robert Gusnowski

"As your name states, you develop great software. When EditPad 8 comes out, I will be upgrading again. Too few IT people today have no idea as to what a good editor can do. Other than email, yours is the second most important application I use on a daily basis."

20 March 2013, Saskatchewan, Canada

John R. Thompson

"Thanks for a great product. I have been using Editpad as my main source code and general note taking editor (as well as regexbuddy for regex development) for 5 or more years now. I’m a bioinformaticist and routinely work with large GB size files. I really like the filetype specific settings that let me customize behavior for certain file types."

8 July 2013, New Jersey, USA

John Lees

"Brilliant!

"I must admit I am very impressed with your editor and even more impressed with the promptness your after sales service.

"I am a very satisfied customer."

5 November 2004—years later:

"I must say, there are very few software vendors offering your level of customer support and I can't think of any who seriously treat customer support as a value add to their product. I now have a portable copy of EditPad Pro and when work colleagues tell me they can't open/edit something I can now just plug in my USB stick to and show them what a good product it is, which is clearly good sales PR for you. In fact I've even had vendors tell me I had to purchase another license to have a portable version—they just don't get it and needless to say I haven't bothered renewing my subscription."

10 March 2009, Australia—years later still:

"I love EditPad, it is such a capable tool. It saves me huge amounts of time and enables tasks that just wouldn't be practical with a standard text editor. It has paid for itself many times over and the personalized support I get is fantastic."

31 January 2013, Australia

Edward Popko

"It took me some time to get used to the rich interface but once I could navigate around, I found EditPad Pro to be the best, by far, editor I have ever used. It is simple amazing what you can do with it. And its complete support for regex is a huge help too in addition to recognizing common types of files like HTML, Java, PHP etc. Hats off to the cooks! Wonderful editor!"

19 October 2012, New York, USA

Anthony Wayne

"I am a long time user of Notepad++ and was skeptical that any text editor should cost money. So I first tried out the lite version. Well, I was very happy with what it had to offer. I have my own website built with Drupal, but I often have changes to to themes and layout I want to make. I am NO developer that's for sure, so I need all the features I can get to sort through and make sense of the code I'm seeing. I was so impressed with how the lite version worked that I went and got the Pro version. It was worth every cent! Sometimes I'd literally spend hours trying to change one little tiny thing on my site that bugged me, but now I can find what I need to quickly and easily. Thanks EditPad!"

23 August 2012

Michael Robb

"Let me just say that I've been enjoying my experience with EditPad thus far. I've been using various Scintilla-based editors for a while but none of them have fused together all the features I care about as well as this editor has.

1 June 2012, Alberta, Canada

Wes Savage

"I wish to say that I am very impressed by your support. I have never ever seen support like it. You're fast, friendly and very helpful.

"I develop software and I have to admit that I build most all of my tools simply because I can do it better than the software that is out there. The other reason I create my own is because support is either non-existent or its the "wait in line" kind. Leave a message after you spend hours looking through their support options pages full of answers to read and then just maybe you will find that one button that is well hidden to send them a letter and then wait for their reply which usually is the wrong answer because the idiot at the other end does not fully understand. It can go on endlessly.

"Your support is so fast and so accurate it is amazing."

16 April 2012, Philippines

Kevin Sommers

"Since upgrading to EditPad Pro 7, at least once week I am hit with an "Oh WOW!" moment. Today it was my re-discovery of backups and file history. I know they were available before, I just had not really used them.

"The use of Milestones and backups is exactly the feature I did not know I needed! Jan, your attention to detail continually amazes me, and I want to sincerely thank you for your dedication to making EditPad Pro an absolutely outstanding product!"

8 September 2011, Canada

Don Beaton

"Thanks for the effort you put into the upgrade of EditPad Pro from v6 to v7. The new version is polished and intuitive, and is a pleasure to use. I'd recommend the upgrade to all v6 users (and to users of other text editors)."

27 May 2011, California, USA

Karel Behounek

"Thank you for your continuous effort. I have already noticed some great new features like replacing Unicode with entities and similar stuff. I need this kind functionality quite often and I am happy to have it integrated in my text editor."

24 May 2011, Czech Republic

Christian Kranz

"I've been using Editpad Pro for several months now and from today I updated to EditPad Pro 7. And I really have to say thank you. Thank you for this more than great piece of software. It saved my life more than once and speeds up daily work as a programmer so that I can save time for the really important things. Its intuitive and contains all the features I need, especially the new replacement keywords are something I wish I would have had in EditPad 6. EditPad Pro is an essential part of my virtual life!"

17 May 2011, Germany

Edward Mesa

"I'm not a programmer, but I do work a lot with text (txt, csv, kml/kmz), so I finally bit the bullet and bought EditPad Pro. I've used other free text editors because I wanted more features than Notepad, but EditPad Pro really is worth the cost. It has a much greater feature set than any free editor I have used, is easier to use, and never crashes. In short, it saves me time and is a pleasure to use. I've actually smiled using it as I learned some of what it can do."

12 June 2014, Oklahoma, USA

Daniel Maltarollo

"I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your tools and your good support. I'm a proud user of licensed copies of EditPad Pro and RegexBuddy and it's always really nice to see your commitment to these tools and get constant and relevant updates. Thank you for your great support."

24 December 2013, Brazil

Josh Wolfer

"As always, EditPad pro is amazing. You have changed the way I work for the last decade and you very much have my respect."

5 December 2013, California, USA

Michael Clark

I was just playing around with Unicode character U+0085 (New Line), which is an obscure hold-over from IBM EBCDIC. EditPad was the only program on my Windows 7 computer (including many Microsoft programs) which properly used this character to separate lines vertically. Not only that, but EditPad has a little "NL" icon that shows that this obscure linebreak is being used instead of the more common CR/LF/CRLF. Kudos. :)

30 July 2013, Colorado, USA

Dean R. Zimmerman

"I have come to realize that EditPad Pro is the best editor, hands down! And I've used a dozen of them. But your customer support is the best in the industry."

5 March 2013, Utah, USA

Peter Glassey

"Just wanted to say thanks for the great software. Specifically, thank you for the dozens (perhaps hundreds) of hours of my time your efficient, easy-to-use and well-designed software has saved. I’ve been using (and loving) EditPad for years, and just bought my own license since I’m working as a contractor now."

12 February 2013, California, USA

Fabio Vitale

"Let me say that EditPad Pro and AceText are two of the best piece of software I've came across during my career as a software developer since 1982, period!

"During 30 years I've used all kind of text editors, both free and paid ones. Starting with my first copy of MultiEdit: it is amazing that they continue to bug me with emails of a never appearing "new" version of MultiEdit! But MultiEdit is just an example. Really I've tried any editor, from vi, vim (the one I still use on Linux boxes), to emacs; from MultiEdit to UltraEdit and so on: none of them came close to the perfection and simplicity of your EditPad Pro.

"I'm a Delphi developer since its version 1.0 and I know how difficult is to think the right architecture for any piece of software: in EditPad Pro even the registration mechanism is perfect: I do not even need to think about registration, my downloads are already registered to me! This is simply genial!

"The fact that the JGsoft forums are accessible from within their software is genial too: I do not need to open my web browser: I simply click on the forum icon in EditPad and I'm right logged in into all JGsoft forums, without interrupting what I'm doing!

"So in the end: thank you for having created such great pieces of software!"

7 December 2012, Italy

Kraig Johnson

"I’ve now upgraded to 7.1 and I just have to say, Jan, you’ve outdone yourself once again. Your software has enhanced my company’s efficiency beyond measure for nearly a decade, and I just wanted you to know that you’re my personal hero! PLEASE keep working on EditPad – Everyone I know in the development industry across the world uses your EditPad with the exact same sentiment. You truly revolutionise our tedious lives every day with your EditPad, and the world greatly appreciates it. I wish you great prosperity and the best of luck."

25 September 2012, United Kingdom

Janet Reed

"I want to express that I truly like your product and know that I will like it even more when I am up to speed and know what I'm doing! You explain things very thoroughly and your guide is complete. It is very helpful and written in a user-friendly manner. I'm in the field of fashion. The way programmers talk is hard to understand let alone digest! You also seem very conscientious about wanting your product to be as excellent as it can be."

20 June 2012, California, USA

Anthony D. Duerr

"I've been using EditPad Pro for many years now, and absolutely love the way you approach the development of this software, how stable and reliable it is, including its ability to handle things that seemingly no other editor can (how about opening and editing huge files?). I recommend it to my engineering colleagues regularly."

20 April 2012, California, USA

Jim Downing

"Just writing to say how much I appreciate EditPad Pro. I'm a science writer and don't do any coding, but I find managing big projects—lots of notes and other long text documents—to be so much easier in EPP than in Word. I've been using EPP for six years and I still actually look forward to opening the program every morning. Thanks!"

1 March 2012, California, USA

Steve Wang

"The latest version was hit in our department. I was able to convert the hold-outs of UtlraEdit and TextPad to EditPad Pro."

7 December 2011, Minnesota, USA

Tsvi Sadan

"[The new right-to-left support in EditPad 7] has enabled me to make EditPad Pro the only text editor I use for multiple languages in multiple scripts. I have even deleted all the other text editors I used to use for non-Latin scripts as I see no reason anymore to continue to use them.

"Until now I didn't have any sophisticated text editor that also supports bidirectional editing, but now I can recommend EditPad Pro as well as EditPad Lite to anyone who is looking for a text editor with support for bidirectional editing and amazing functionality.

"Thank you very much for making such an unbelievably excellent text editor!"

follow-up email:

"I'm not eloquent enough to describe fully my admiration and appreciation for such an incredible text editor, nor can I believe yet that someone has ever made it. Being a professional linguist working with various languages in various scripts, I have some complicated demand for a text editor in terms of multilingual and multiscript support. None of literally hundreds of text editors I had ever tried met my demand, until I found EditPad Pro 7. It's in my humble opinion the best (multilingual/multiscript) text editor ever made on this planet. Now I spend more time with it as my sole text editor than with any other software program. I've already started to recommend EditPad Pro to my colleagues, students and friends."

Dr. Tsvi Sadan, Tenured Senior Lecturer in Hebrew Linguistics, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

7 June 2011, Israel

Rich Messeder

"Thanks so much for [EditPad Pro 7]. I am much impressed, and have been using it so much during beta testing that I can't bear to go back to EditPad Pro 6, which I was so happy with before!"

16 May 2011, New Hampshire, USA

Comments on EditPad Pro 6

Kerry S. Martin

"EditPad Pro is a very high quality, easy to use, and useful text editor. I have been using this editor for several years now and have not had a single complaint. Thank you for creating such a great product."

18 March 2011, Iowa, USA

Alex Douglas

"I have no problems with Edit Pad Pro. I have been using it for years. I am grateful for all the free updates you give to keep the program running in top form. I just want to say thank you for a great product."

27 February 2011, Texas, USA

Chris Leonard

"In case you're having a bad day, let me say that EditPad Pro just simply rocks. I can't believe the trouble I have getting my colleagues to learn enough basic regex to become proficient at using it. When they see me use it, they are always impressed (frequently if they see me turn a pile of text into a well-formatted batch of Transact-SQL commands, what I hear over my shoulder is, and I quote, "Wow!"). I am trying to evangelize your product, because I just cringe watching people waste their day searching through text. It's like watching a Neanderthal try to plan a trip to the moon compared with using the regex features of EditPad Pro. Thanks a lot for developing this product. I can't imagine how much time it has saved me at work."

8 January 2011, Iowa, USA

Ed Grossheim

"Thanks for listening [to my suggestions]. I would like to emphasize how much I enjoy using EditPad Pro. It has been such a pleasure, and I looked hard at many editors. To me it is a real programmer's program editor (one who compiles in different compilers, and scripts in many languages)."

16 August 2010, Illinois, USA

David Mawdsley

"I've used EditPad and AceText for nearly 6 years and this is the first time I have had to ask for support. I've always thought that the products were superb but now I can also say that the support is first class."

27 June 2010, United Kingdom

Bill Agnor

"I have been using EditPad Pro for about a month and keep finding new and outstanding features. I have used many different editors starting with writing code on micro controllers in the 1970's and 1980's, C in the 1980's, and VHDL in the 1990. I have used cheap editors and very expensive editors and so far EditPad Pro is proving to be a very outstanding editor with all the right features. You have really done a remarkable design effort on this tool and I sure commend you for the time and effort you put into the design. Thank you for such a nice tool."

20 May 2010, North Carolina, USA

Ulrich Weber

"I've been testing EditPad Pro for some three weeks now and am totally hooked. As I use RegEx very frequently to get my work done I can say that I never before experienced such a fine, complete, fast and reliable RegEx engine included in any editor for Windows, neither in commercial nor in freeware versions. The ability to deal with huge files is also very important for me - EditPad Pro was the first one able to open a 1.5 GiB file without exploding my RAM or totally screwing up the file ... amazing, that's how editing should work."

12 November 2009, Germany

Jonas M. Hunziker

"I basically just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy using EditPad Pro and how much it has made my everyday handling of text and script files easier! Before EditPad Pro, I never lost much thought on RegExp but the awesome power they pack, combined with EditPad's "Search & Replace" feature have helped me save time so many times, I lost count! And I probably haven't even discovered half of the features yet. So just a quick "Thank You!" for a great product! I am so glad I licensed a copy!"

5 October 2009, Kentucky, USA

Wayne Wheal

"I would like to thank you for an excellent editor that I use every day for one reason or other, whether it is a tiny note or editing a file that has 100k + lines. I am a software developer myself and when it comes to features and ease of use there is nothing else I would rather use."

15 July 2009, South Africa

Bryan Felsher

"This is such a NEAT editor, as it has eliminated the need for me to have 4 different editors for each language I use. I tried some of the free editors like PSPad among many others, but they were all very difficult to set-up without learning their individual FIL's or could only be set-up for one language at a time.

"Well worth the $50.00 I spent on it. Plus, I can export it to a USB drive and use it on any computer!"

20 May 2009, California, USA

Elijah Taylor

"Just purchased EditPad Pro and RegExBuddy after using them both for years at work. I’ve been laid off and am now venturing off on my own, so it was a no-brainer to pick up both of these great products to help me!

"Thanks for making great software."

17 April 2009, North Carolina, USA

Frederick Bazley

"I have been using EditPad Pro 6 for some time now and am amazed at the job it does for me. Your latest update of March 10th is another fine example of the excellent work your people do. Best investment I ever made on any software, bar none. Keep up the good work and thanks."

17 March 2009, Indiana, USA

Sue James

"Although I don't use your other programs, not being a programmer, EditPad Pro has been an absolute godsend for text and html editing. In fact I only put it through another intensive session this morning, after updating our website and needing to replace one URL with another on most of the 200+ pages of our site. :-) I've used EditPad Pro for a number of years now, and recommended it to anyone looking for a great text or html editor. So thank you for all your work and for a terrific program!"

24 December 2008, Australia

Toby Allen

"Brilliant! I have been using your RegexBuddy for a while now, and was on the lookout for a new text editor—TextPad sadly no longer being up to the job. I decided to give EditPad Pro a go and so far I am delighted. I have stumbled upon features that I love.

"1. I have been able to run a tool that can take some selected text and return and replace the selected text. With this I now have an inline XML formatter, which is essential for what I do.

"2. I just stumbled upon your "Your file has changed would you like to see a comparison of the files" feature—this is really cool.

"3. Its fast"

30 October 2008, Ireland

Michael Brenden

"Not a day goes by while I'm using EditPad Pro that I don't suddenly realize all over again how excellent it really is. Your good work makes my days appreciably happier, easier and technically cooler. Thanks again."

20 June 2008, Maryland, USA

Tim Pietzcker

"I just wanted to let you know that I'm very happy to have bought EditPadPro. I have been an UltraEdit user for a few years now, and while UltraEdit is undoubtedly a very good editor, I found it lacking in two areas that I care about, namely Python programming support and regular expressions. Having used RegexBuddy for quite a while, I probably should have thought of making the switch earlier, but I guess it's better late than never. I only started using EditPad Pro yesterday, and already I'm hooked.

"Your backup concept using a hidden history is great! Sequential backups never worked the way I expected them to in UltraEdit, so now I feel a lot safer. And the idea with milestones is wonderful!

"There are many other things I admire, most of all the care and thought that went into the support for all those programming languages. And of course the genius to have everything regex-based. UltraEdit had introduced "Perl compatible regular expressions" two major versions ago, but their implementation was somewhat inconsistent, and a few annoying bugs still haven't been fixed. So I guess from having used RegexBuddy I was a little spoiled by the JGsoft engine, so I always used to think "What if I had an editor that would actually support this regex?"—I keep wondering why it took me so long..."

13 April 2008, Germany

Simon Wadsworth

"I’m emailing just to say “thank you!” and congratulate you on these superb products EditPad Pro and PowerGREP.

"I’ve been using other tools for these tasks for years now and none of them has come close to being as feature rich as yours. Feature rich, but not feature bloat. Everything seems to be there for a clear purpose and is very well thought out. It isn’t often these days that one comes across software that is so impressively focused on its tasks.

"In the couple of days I’ve been using EditPad it has already saved me hours with the built-in FTP support. Editing my websites has never been so easy."

2 April 2008, United Kingdom

Andre von Rekowski

"You are the best! In my 7 years as developer I have tried EVERY other major editor and this is by far the best, THANK YOU for your dedication to a great product! I wanted to thank you—for the hours of work you save me every day — and looked at your site—there I noticed that I no longer had the most recent version and immediately upgraded."

12 October 2007, Germany

Adam O’Toole

"Thank you for putting an excellent product out on the market. I use EditPad Pro on a daily basis for working with server logs and configuration files, and it has saved me so much time and effort in my daily work that it repays for itself on a weekly basis. I recommend it constantly to my coworkers in Support."

"Thanks again for sending out the notification email recommending that I immediately upgrade to the new version. This is excellent proactive customer support and I commend you for it."

23 August 2007, Massachusetts, USA

Mike Viens

"Thank you for your fantastic products. While programming is not really enjoyable for me after almost 25 years, I do find using your products to be extremely rewarding and time-saving. I have used thousands of programs throughout my life, but few ever work the way they should. I am very pleased that yours is one of those few."

31 July 2007, California, USA

Yancey Sexton

"I just wanted you to know that I am a programmer and run an online weekly newspaper. I am a long time user and admirer of EditPad. I am still amazed almost daily of the power of EditPad Pro. I have not been so happy with a program since Sidekick back in the old DOS days. Everyday when I startup my computer I load my email, my browser, then EditPad Pro.

"EditPad Pro is everything I've always wanted in an editor and much more. The price is nothing compared to the benefits. I only wish I could replace my word processor and publisher programs with EditPad Pro, but I guess I can't have everything in one program.

"Thank you so much for providing me a tool that has become so much a part of my life and has made my work so much easier."

4 June 2007, Arizona, USA

David Hankinson

"For years I have been a registered user of UltraEdit32. Recently, I discovered and quickly registered EditPad Pro. Very impressive. Needless to say I won't be going back to that "other" editor.

"Oh, and let me point out a huge plus—the ability to install my EditPad Pro on my PortableApps USB key. Wow! That is truly a major bonus for which I am most grateful.

"Excellent work! Extremely happy to have EditPad Pro on my laptop AND my portable USB."

30 April 2007, Canada

Steve Hodgson

"Thanks. I’d already registered by the time you sent this. Once I realised that file types could be recognised using a regex and that syntax definition was also based on regex I couldn’t resist.

"Those features plus proper Unicode support, a nice clear file list for working on large projects and few modal dialogs meant it was time to move on from my previously much-loved TextPad that now seems to have been abandoned."

4 March 2007, United Kingdom

Becky Peters

"I've been using EPP for a long time now... and I LOVE it. Can't live without it. Recommend it all the time. I haven't always upgraded as quickly as I should; with this last version I made a promise to myself that I am going to upgrade right away from now on... the enhancements you make with each version are really great and save me a lot of time. Just added RegexBuddy recently and kicked myself for not adding that a long time ago, also. It's a super tool and easyeasyEASY."

14 February 2007, Minnesota, USA

Peter Warrington

"May I say how much I enjoy using Editpad Pro, and have done so for some time now. After using various editors over the years, I find this to be one of the most flexible and versatile pieces of software around. It's always nice to find software that can still surprise by its versatility."

25 January 2007, United Kingdom

Xavier Clarke

"I love EditPadPro! I recently switched from using EmEditor. I've been using EmEditor for years and thought it was simply the best. It would have to take a heck of an editor to make me switch and EditPad Pro is a heck of an editor. Keep up the great work!"

10 December 2006, Texas, USA

Paul Petterson

"Just though I'd add that EditPad Pro is an awesome tool... I've been fiddling with making my own file navigation scheme for my 'to-do list' text file that all code developers seem to keep :) It's really usefully to be able to collapse the sections I don't have to worry about right now.

"Thanks, and keep up the great work! :)"

6 October 2006, Washington, USA

John Edward Beard, II

"I've been using EditPad Classic for around five or six years now to make my web pages (using mainly HTML, XHTML, PHP, and CSS). I have always loved its robust search/replace which can handle all of my documents at once. The other night, I decided to see what was new with the project, and while I knew that EditPad had a new "Lite" and "Pro" version, I wasn't interested before because Classic worked so well for me. The trial version of EditPad Pro put me over the edge with its syntax highlighting, dictionary support, and the ridiculous amount of features packed into a relatively small overall package.

"Anyhow, I just wanted to say thanks for your outstanding products & customer service that I will gladly recommend to my friends and family, and continue to use throughout the years.

"JGsoft is definitely a company that lives up to its name."

1 September 2006, USS Kitty Hawk

John Roush

"I've been receiving your newsletter for five years now...

"I've also (obviously) been an EditPad Pro 4.x user for the same five years... receiving free bug fixes...

"Well, today I sent you $25 to upgrade to v6.0, and feel happy to do so. As the developer for the SpamLion product, I use your editor as #2 ONLY to Visual Studio (VB and C++).

"In other words, ALL other coding (and searching/parsing log files) is done with your editor, which I use almost every day!

"Of course, I also recommend the product to everyone!"

30 June 2006, California, USA

Jennifer Whildin

"I just wanted to tell you I'm extremely pleased with EditPad Pro 6, as I was with version 5, and it's well worth the money. It's useful for so many things, although I use it mostly as a text editor and HTML editor. One of my favorite things about it is a really simple thing, probably not even considered a feature: The search field allows selection and pasting of blank lines in such a way that I can delete extra blank lines all in one fell swoop, which I haven't found with other HTML editors I've tried. It may not sound like much, but it really makes my life a lot easier, since I've edited a lot of fan fiction and original fiction files that had extra blank lines. I like my pages to look neat, even in coded view, and EditPad Pro 6 makes it simple. It's simply the best text editor, HTML editor, and code editor around! Thank you so much!"

29 June 2006, New Jersey, USA

Wayne Clarke

"Great job on the new editor EditPadPro 6.0.0. I have been doing a lot of C-embedded programming lately and you have nailed the search capabilities. The projects, (epp) files are working great and now I rely on them heavily. I also enjoy stumbling into new features as I use it like right-clicking in the search panel to see a history list."

5 June 2006, New York, USA

Paul Duggan

"Congratulations on EditPad Pro 6. I own all of your software, it is all amazing, feature packed and makes my work as a Delphi software developer even faster and a lot more fun. EditPad Pro is the jewel in your crown and version 6 is even better, I love the fold functionality and the way I can spell check Delphi comments and string literals."

31 May 2006, United Kingdom

David Gwillim

"I just purchased and downloaded EditPadPro 6, I wanted to let you know what a great quantum leap in features you have added from 5. Well worth the upgrade fee."

29 May 2006, New York, USA

Allen Day

"I have been using EditPad religiously for several years, I can still remember the relief it was to lay hands on EditPad after having been frustrated by the utter worthlessness of notepad. EditPad was just what I was looking for to assist me in my web design- small, fast, simple, and reliable- packed with features but still having the simple flexibility of a plain text editor. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical of 4.0 when I first sampled the betas- Mostly because it was so much more than I was used to. I feared EditPad becoming another notepad replacement with too-much bulk. I apologize for doubting you, Jan! I spent that last 2 months in Navy boot camp; upon returning to the virtual world, I was welcomed by the non-beta release of EditPad 4. I downloaded and sampled the lite version and within a few hours had purchased the Pro edition. EditPad 4.0 is brilliant. EditPad has every feature a person could possibly want, it is -fully- customizable, its footprint on your system is minute, and as we have come to respect from JGsoft- it's a clean, stable, reliable program. Once again, you've gone above and beyond the call of duty in delivering a program leaves us wondering, 'How does he do it?'".

24 November 2001—two major upgrades later:

"Upgraded the moment I found out—congratulations on another brilliant version of EditPad! I've been really excited about this one—of the few things EditPad didn't have that I liked in other editors, nearly all of them were implemented this time around. It's a good week for EditPad fans :)"

Nick McCusker

"I have been remiss in not sending this email sooner. I was turned on to EditPad Pro (originally Lite) by a fellow coworker years ago. At the time, I did not anticipate how dependent I have become on this wonderful piece of software. I could not count the ways it has helped me.

"I have been using both AceText and EditPad Pro for several years now, and I just wanted to know how much your software has helped me in my development career. I could only aspire to be able to write such quality software as you do.

"Thank you for the quality work that you do, and may you keep it up for years to come."

Jim Parisi

I have been using EditPad Pro for a few years now. I use it on a daily basis. In all this time it has never one locked up, caused my computer to lock up, corrupted a file, never ran slow or hesitated when doing something, and serves ALL my needs. It is packed with so many features that even today i am still finding out things that it can do that i had no idea, and each one makes my life better!"

Rob Seddon-Smith

"Thank you for Edit Pad Pro. I was skeptical of your testimonials until I tried it. It's wonderful."

29 May 2010, New Zealand

Diane Greenberg

"As always, you are so prompt to help. And I wish to convey how much I appreciate both EditPad Pro and AceText. They have been programs that I use almost every day and I truly rely on these great software programs."

18 February 2010, California, USA

Eileen Cohen

"I just want to say "WOW!" I've been looking for years for a Windows text editor as good as BBEdit is on the Mac. I'm just blown away. Thank you!"

8 December 2009, California, USA

Benjamin Schurman

"I have been using EditPad pro since 2000 and I can't seem to use any other editor no matter how I try. Even after I moved my development from windows to Linux I still have to run EditPad in CrossOver (wine) so that I can get my work done. It's such an outstanding product that I can't imagine get my work done in anything else."

6 October 2009, Massachusetts, USA

Dean R. Zimmerman

"I cannot truly express my satisfaction with EditPad Pro. I never realized how powerful the regex functions of a text editor are, and how much I need them. I've been an UltraEdit user forever; and it simply doesn't compare with EditPad Pro."

7 September 2009, Utah, USA

Hernán J. González

"Just to congratulate you for EditPad Pro, which I've recently bought. I'd tried many other editors, but EditPad was the clear winner for me. Among its features, I specially appreciate the excellent search-replace with regular expressions (I come from the Perl world, I use fairly complex expressions, with large files, and EditPad works flawlessly). Honorable mentions to text-encoding facilities, macros+clip collections, and file navigator (there are surely many features which I've yet to discover)."

6 June 2009, Argentina

Peter Friebel

"It's always the simple things that make all the difference and EditPad Pro is a simple, but powerful tool that's made positive impact on my daily life. It's impossible to quantify the savings in my time and therefore money, but they are substantial. Thanks for a logical, practical and entirely useful tool."

17 April 2009, California, USA

Nick Howland

"I am enjoying using EditPad Pro so much, I use it for hours each day as I logon to network equipment all over the US. I especially like the way it remembers what I highlighted when the file was closed—really great for copy-paste on Cisco switch CLI!"

9 March 2009, Oregon, USA

Rich Thayer

"I am a COBOL software developer and really appreciate the work you have done with this product. I leave it open all day long since I am constantly using it. Thanks for this excellent product."

"I cannot believe how good support Just Great Software provides. I cannot get this kind of support out of my son who is a developer at Microsoft!"

6 March 2009, Washington, USA

Greg Wesson

"Let me once again thank you for the incredible software that EditPad Pro is. I honestly cannot even remember trying to use any other inferior (redundant, I know) text editor, and am outright shocked when I see Notepad open on a colleague's computer."

16 January 2009, California, USA

George Dennison

"Thanks for the great programs. My computer life has changed such that it now revolves around EditPad Pro.

"It is now the center of my development work, my notes & reminders, my blog, forum & email creation and my software/computer installation, repair & upgrade logs.

"From the thoughtful & logical details in the installation routine to the useful and well-thought out aspects of the application(s), it is a creation to be proud of. With the addition of RegexBuddy, I can going in places I never knew existed. EditPad's search interface is superb. I can't wait until I get a handle on regex creation to make it sing."

3 December 2008, Oregon, USA

David Latapie

"I wanted to thank you this you for this great piece of software. I am a longtime BBEdit user (a great Mac-only text editor with never-before-seen features) and I needed, for work reasons, a Windows equivalent. I looked at several sofwares, including UltraEdit and Notepad++. I am now using EditPad Pro exclusively and convinced my workmates to use it too."

19 November 2008, France

Bart Austin

"A few days ago, I upgraded from version 5.4.6 to version 6.4.3 of EditPad Pro ... and I LOVE IT!! The interface is fresh and easier ... I really like the new icons for the toolbar!!—they are a big improvement!!

"The only reason I waited so long to update to the newest version is because ... well ... the older version worked so great, I thought to myself, "Why upgrade?"

"Anyway, pretty soon, it will be 8 years since I purchased my first version of EditPad Pro! I am in real estate, and originally purchased EPP in 2001 to compose letters, etc. ... but mostly for the construction (HTML coding) of my website pages!

"I cannot stress how totally invaluable EPP has been over the years in saving me time, effort, and just plain getting things done RIGHT!! There is NO WAY that I could survive today without EPP!! It's always been like owning a 10,000 piece tool set, even though I only use 10 or so tools!! ... but it's nice to know whatever you might need will be there!!

"Thanks for this incredible AND affordable software!!"

3 October 2008, Nevada, USA

Brice Fernandes

"I'd like to thank you for making such a great product as EditPadPro. I was reluctant to buy a text editor when great ones are available free online, but i haven't been disappointed. It is by far one of the best software purchases I have made, and was worth the price several times over. It quite simply rocks!"

27 May 2008, United Kingdom

Bruce Brownlee

"I love your software. It works great and I like having tools written by people who actually freakin understand regular expressions. A lot of editors pretend to do regex and make a mess of it."

3 April 2008, Georgia, USA

Tsvi Sadan

"Since I purchased your editor, I've been spending hours every day using it. It's such a pleasure to use it. A lot of thoughts have been put in advance in this amazing editor. In one of my previous messages I wrote that EditPad Pro is one of the two best editors I've tried, but I have to correct myself now: it's the best editor I've ever used among no less than 100! I've made it my default editor except for not so frequent occasions of using Hebrew."

9 March 2008, Israel

Adam Thompson

"Regarding your software: It is awesome. You hit all of the important features—I'm repeatedly impressed because it seems like you have 'anticipated' every good use of your software. For example, closing an empty EditPad Pro window doesn't ask for a save. AceText, the entire application, is an another example; totally useful and well-designed. RegexBuddy accomplishes things I've never seen in any other regex software. I hope you're making tons of money—you deserve it for these wonderful products you've produced. So far I've purchased RegexBuddy, then AceText, and soon EditPad Pro. I'm going to try PowerGREP just based on how useful your other software is."

28 February 2008, California, USA

Simon Thomson

"EditPad Pro 5 was the best... EditPad Pro 6 goes one step further, however there are limited words to express my feelings and thoughts on this programme. If there was a counter on the number of times it gets used through the days, months and years that I have been using the programme, the number would be too long to fit in the status bar. The feature list seems endless and the developers must have really devious minds to come up with a simple replacement to notepad with so many features. Go on buy it, you wont regret it!"

10 October 2007, United Kingdom

Terry Fletcher

"Superb product, superb support. What more can one ask for? Thank you.

"I use EditPad constantly and I cannot understand how anybody can get through their working day without the assistance of the programme. I also have AceText supporting EditPad, but I don't think I am utilising that programme to its fullest extent. However, the 'Clip Collection' feature alone makes it worthwhile owning and using both.

"Once again, thanks for a couple of excellent products. I never hesitate to recommend them, whether I am asked or not!"

23 August 2007, Portugal

Simon Morrish

"I'm happy to add my name to the list of very-satisfied EditPad Pro users. Previously, I used CodeWright. It took me a long time to find something better, but you managed it! For me, the single killer-feature is the regex-based syntax highlighting and file navigation schemes. I believe it's the most flexible and powerful available anywhere. Other editors support HTML with embedded script, but only as a special case. EPP's syntax highlighting supports just about anything I can imagine throwing at it!"

28 June 2007, United Kingdom

Santosh Narayanan

"I've been using EditPad Lite for over 7 years now. I finally upgraded to EditPad Pro today and cannot believe how I got by without this incredible editor! It is worth every bit of the $49.95 fee that I paid for it. It has already made my current FTP software (WS-FTP Pro) obsolete and has even made Outlook partially obsolete with its integrated FTP and e-mail features!"

19 May 2007, India

Peter Remmers

"I came across your editor because I was looking for one with powerful syntax coloring capabilities. I use it at work to improve the readability of large debug log output files.

"I was using TextPad for this but it does not have much syntax coloring support. I tried jEdit. It is about as powerful as EditPad Pro concerning syntax coloring, but it is written in Java and is painfully slow when using complex coloring rules together with a large text file (and logging files tend to become pretty large!). So I was looking for a text editor which has powerful syntax coloring capabilities and is not written in Java—and I found EditPad Pro.

"First, I downloaded the trial, but unfortunately it would not let me test the syntax coloring rules, only predefined sets :-(

"Then I took the risk and simply bought it. And I was not disappointed regarding the syntax coloring capabilities! This is just great! And it is fast. :-D"

12 April 2007, Germany

Frank Lin

"I am trying out EditPad Pro, and I have to say that I like it a lot - it's the best, most customizable, and the fastest general Unicode text editor I've used, and I've tried many different ones."

14 February 2007, USA

Trevor Borgmeier

"I have a sad story to tell. I switched to OS X. My biggest hesitation was knowing I would lose my true love of a text editor, Editpad Pro. I can run it using Wine, or by running windows through parallels, and though I haven't entirely ruled out those options, it is less than ideal. There have been many difficulties in making the switch to OS X, but none compare to the loss of Editpad Pro. Though I kind of enjoy being Microsoft free, I really dislike being JGsoft free. You've created such a wonderful text editor with an excellent intuitive design and so many great features. Of the text editors I've tried under OS X, none of them come close to Editpad Pro. None of them. Unless my dreams come true and you sneakily release a new OS X (or Linux) version I must say Editpad Pro is going to be missed dearly. Aside from my dislike of OS X's Finder, Editpad Pro is what most tempts me to switch back to Windows. EPP, I will be sure to visit you from time to time and let you tickle my text in ways that only you have, but for now I'm very sad to say good-bye. You will be missed, but never forgotten."

2 January 2007, Minnesota, USA

Terry Constant

"I just wanted you to know that I am using [EditPad Pro version] 6.1.2 and it is a very good product.

"It is the closest thing on the market to an all-purpose editor. It performs excellently in various tasks (programming, general text work, and so forth).

"I started using various "editors" in the 1960s (punch cards) and have used many dozens of them since then and made a few contributions to the programming of a few.

"You have succeeded in producing the best general editor in the world, which is at the top of the list for any particular field.

"Congratulations!"

24 November 2006, Texas, USA

Richard Watt

"I want to thank you for creating what I consider my ultimate tool for a Windows PC. Finding that perfect editor has been difficult for me and with your newest version I think I have found it. You probably don't remember, but I contacted you over a year ago to inquire about some features that were absent, such as Duplicate Line. I was happy to see that here now. I did purchase my copy about a few weeks ago and it has been a joy to use."

26 August 2006, Alabama, USA

Tony Austin

"A year or two ago, I suggested that you add "Save As" to the EditPad context menu (right click menu). I was extremely surprised and gratified to see it appear in a sub-release not long after that! In contrast, with some other companies (Qualcomm with Eudora, NTI with Shadow backup, etc) I have found it to be a battle to even convince them that you have a valid problem, extremely hard to get past the Help Desk (not software designers/programmers) to somebody who understands and agrees that it needs fixing, etc. I wish all software companies were like JGSoft."

28 June 2006, Australia

Michael Dun

"Great news! Thank you so much [for fixing this bug so quickly]! I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate the time you spend in development, the speed with which you fix and enhance the program, the power (regex!) and its myriad features, and how frequently I use and enjoy it every day. I've been an evangelistic convert for over 6 years—and was just able to convince my team at work that we needed to purchase licenses for the rest of them. 5 more converts!

"Thanks again, for all the hard work and the great results!"

16 June 2006, Arizona, USA

Marcus Jaeger

"I have been a long time user of Editpad since the days it was cardware. I had been using version 4 for a long time and then made the jump to version 6 as I was very happy with 4. Now using version 6 knocked me of my feet! Since I started using it for my daily work, which is a lot of hostmaster and DNS work, with lots of different templates and also cisco router configs, it made my work much easier, as I can find things faster and customize more. The new layout took a bit getting used to, but did not take long! Thanks for an amazing upgrade and great work over the last years!

5 June 2006, Switzerland

Daniel Hutchinson

"[The Create Portable Installation feature] is a very welcome addition to your program... I don't know how many times in the past when I've helped someone with their computer that I've had to use Notepad as the text editor and wished I had EditPad Pro to work with, especially if dealing with HTML or some other file that used indenting for organization.

"Again, job well done! Upgrading your program is a no-brainer!"

30 May 2006, Missouri, USA

Bob Dankert

"Thank you so much for your continued work and dedication to the software and the customers of the customers of the software. Never before have I encountered a software author willing to take suggestions and as helpful as you are—it is very much appreciated. I definitely look forward to see what improvements you continue to make to the software in the future, though it is hard to imagine it can get much better!"

27 May 2006, Wisconsin, USA

Ryan Lloyd

"Thanks for the email [announcing EditPad Pro 6]. I have just taken a look at the features and screenshots on the new version and it looks superb. So many features, I think I will give it a try!

"I have been evaluating Ultraedit for a while now, it looks like you have created an editor which has everything Ultraedit has and a while lot more.

"Keep up the great work."

27 May 2006, United Kingdom

Rodney Hill

"I just installed version 6 and I am dancing jigs. Great job! The File Navigator alone is a huge value addition, not to mention the macro support."

26 May 2006, Washington, USA

Daniel Lopez

"I've been using EditPad for many years and I think it's a great program. Just before ordering the last version I had a quick look at some other editors and they all infuriated me with some small quirk or other—whereas EditPad is sensibly and intuitively designed throughout."

Comments on EditPad Pro 5

Howard Carson—Kickstartnews

"EditPad Pro is a solid, versatile text editor. Highly recommended."

Lora Stephanchick

"Just wanted to provide some long overdue feedback. I've been using EditPad since about 1998. I have worked at 5 companies during this time, various technologies at each...but the one constant has been my use of EditPad. I've never been disappointed w/ the editor and am extremely pleased with the evolution of this tool. Regex and the ability to work with large files more efficiently than other text editors are extremely important to me, but the combination of those with the continually added features make EditPad Pro one of my favorite tools of all time. Keep up the great work."

24 March 2006, Washington, USA

Alexander Douglas

"I just want to say that I greatly appreciate your product. I am the webmaster for my school, and I have two other websites that I maintain. When I first got into the industry, I tried different web page making programs. Ultimately, I felt I had the best control when I wrote my pages on notepad text editor. I frequently would cut and paste scripts into my pages as I learned or found them elsewhere. So many scripts became confusing to look at and to wade through to make updates on my pages. When I first saw your program, I did not bother with the "lite" version and went ahead and bought your "pro" version of editpad. It has made my editing of webpages so incredibly easier. Thank you. I am glad I bought your program."

16 December 2005, Texas, USA

Tom Parkison

"At first, I was a bit reluctant about purchasing EditPad Pro since I was already using EditPad Lite. I figured that for the most part, EditPad Lite suited me fine. That was until I really started working with PHP, sometimes working with scripts ranging anywhere from 2000 lines or more.

"Anyways, making sure that I had closed my brackets was getting to be a chore. Try debugging a PHP script searching for that one line that you forgot to add that one single end-bracket to. Anyways, with EditPad Pro's ability to automatically color-code PHP scripts and the ability to put your cursor in front of a bracket and then having it highlight its matching bracket, well, with that, I was instantly hooked on EditPad Pro.

"I just wanted to say this because EditPad Pro really has made my life developing my PHP scripts a whole lot easier."

10 November 2005, Ohio, USA

Jonathan Terry

"I am not a programmer. I'm a land surveyor. I use your program to edit data collection files (text files) and ASCII point dumps, etc. The first purchase with a former employer was to get line numbers to show up and to be able to perform block edits. But, the program has so many useful features, and it works perfectly for my applications. Each time I open it, I greet it with love. (Too sappy? Sorry, that's the truth.)

"So many of the programs I've used (and still use) are buggy and unreliable. To encounter a program whose usefulness grows as my understanding of its power increases is such a blessing. It's been useful in so many ways, including comparisons between point-dump files to see if anything has changed. This alone has saved hours or annoyingly tedious checking. At this firm, we've purchased two seats, and more will be needed in time.

"When I've had questions, you've responded promptly and thoroughly with what little support I've needed.

"Thank You! You've done a wonderful service."

15 September 2005, Pennsylvania, USA

Kyle Cooney

"I must say, I'm blown away. EditPad Pro is, all at once, the most simple application to use, as well as one of the most powerful. I consistently find myself using it for everything I do, from drafting my agenda for the day's work, to brainstorming project ideas, to coding all of my Ruby, Java, and XHTML/XML projects.

"I'm also extremely happy to find the addition of a project management tool built in to the application. And I can't believe more applications of similar nature still don't have a launch in browser button. So simple, yet such a huge time saver, and it leaves me from having to deal with the temporary files that Dreamweaver creates."

23 June 2005, Washington DC, USA

Roger Schroeder

"Thanks for your speedy response.

"I have now downloaded the free version, and seen that it does what I want—and does it VERY well. I'm a fairly old-time computer geek, having been in the business since before the integrated circuit was developed, so I do know a good piece of software when I see it—and this is a GREAT piece of software.

"After looking the free version over for about ten minutes, I went ahead and ordered the US$ 39 version from your website. The last piece of software that really impressed me was SuperCalc3—until now. (I guess Excel 97 was OK)"

27 January 2005, Massachusetts, USA

Ryan Ware

"Thank you. I ran across your editor [EditPad Pro] the other day. I had last used the free version [EditPad Lite] on a couple years back. I own TextPad and UltraEdit too, but I must say yours has leap frogged them. I especially like the syntax highlighting and the download method of getting the highlighting files you want—light years ahead of the other editors."

5 August 2004, Minnesota, USA

Bob Chmara

"I am a former CodeWrite user. While I really liked CodeWrite, and it took me some time to adjust to the "EditPad Way", I couldn't be happier with an editor. Most of my work is HTML, Perl, PHP and XML, and the flexibility and capabilities of EditPad make that work so much easier."

2 August 2004, Michigan, USA

Brian P. Glover

"I am a big fan of EditPad Pro, and tell everyone I come in contact with that might need an industrial-strength text editor to get EditPad Pro. Most people look at me a bit strangely when they find I am so "up" on something so seemingly mundane as a text editor. When that happens, it is a sign either that they really do not do "heavy lifting" with text files, or they are too clueless to appreciate what EditPad Pro could do to make their work simpler and faster.

"I am not a true programmer, but do work with formatted-text data files, and from time to time need to look at some old Unix utility scripts in awk, sed, perl, and also some C and C++ code to try to figure out what they do, etc. The syntax coloring, Regular Expression search/replace, and Block Copy/Paste are so incredibly useful in my daily work. Also, I just noticed that EditPad Pro ver. 5.2.1 seems to "recognize" many more fixed-width fonts than the older version 4-series of EditPad Pro. This is nice to see.

"I looked at some other text editors for Windows, such as UltraEdit (it was too complex for what I had in mind) but EditPad Pro was the perfect balance between ease of use, with all the functionality that I needed.

"When I had access to Unix and VMS systems a few years back, we had at our disposal a text editor called NEdit. That text editor is the quintessence of text editors in my estimation. It is extremely speedy even with immense text files. For Windows use, EditPad Pro is practically the same as NEdit was in Unix and VMS.

"Thank you for producing and maintaining such a high-quality product. It is a pleasure to use EditPad Pro."

20 February 2004, Minnesota, USA

Bob Metelsky

"I've used your program every day for the past 3 years and besides my browser it's the most used program on my machine. I'm a database administrator and work with COM developers so I'm constantly editing scripts etc. No doubt your program is exceptionally popular across the world. I love it!!!"

29 October 2003, Connecticut, USA

Simon Thomson

"To be perfectly honest, EditPad Pro is the best thing since sliced bread and I recommend it to everyone I meet. Who needs FrontPage or DreamWeaver when you know all the code and you have a fantastic programme like EditPad Pro?"

31 March 2006, United Kingdom

Simon Price

"As a daily user of EditPad Pro, I find this to be amongst the best pieces of software I use. It is intuitive, and has all the functionality a text editor needs. If only all applications were as stable and reliable as EditPad! I always reference it in the metatag section of all the web pages I produce."

28 February 2006, United Kingdom

Christopher Ryan

"I wanted to write up a testimonial for EditPad Pro—but I don't fit in with 99% of the other folks who have great things to say about EditPad Pro because it's a great coders companion... I live at the opposite end of the digital creation spectrum.. I'm not a coder—I'm a writer... Whats more—I'm a spastic quadriplegic—which means I'm wheelchair bound and also have very bad vision. I can only type with four fingers on my left hand, and my eyes have stigmatisms in both of them—which means that I have serious trouble using most word processors because nobody cares about giving users the ability to use a square cursor instead of that incredibly thin line, and under windows, you cant change the background and foreground colors without changing the entire color scheme for every application used by the operating system.

"...then I discovered editpad pro. I'm not kidding when I say that I wept for joy when I realized that I could change the cursor to a full color square that DIDN'T blink and compose anything I want in whatever font size I want with whatever color scheme I want. I can now write entire chapters in a few days, sometimes less than 48 hours, and I'm not kidding when I say that I use EditPad Pro to compose every important document I create—from letters, to emails, to full fictional manuscripts to blog entries for all the blogs I participate in... I no longer have to wear polarized sunglasses to use Microsoft Word because of their horrid bright white default background.. I just have to cut and paste my content from EditPad into Word, save it in the format I want, and there's nothing else to worry about. The best part about EditPad is that it doesn't try to be the most complicated application in the world—in fact it goes out of its way NOT to be. I can't begin to thank you enough for creating an alternative to all the other popular word processing applications that have all the intelligence in the world, but have yet to learn how to shut up and stay out of a writer's way. The last thing I need when I'm trying to crank through a hundred pages of manuscript is to have to stop every five minutes and backtrack because autoformat just butchered an entire section of dialog that took me an hour to put together just the way I want it...

"Finally, I'd like to thank you most of all for making EditPad Pro as customizable as you have, because those extra options—the square cursor and the ability to make the application utilize any colors I choose, along with the ability to make the fonts as big as I need them to be—none of those features might seem very important to you, but to someone like me with a disability, they mean everything. Those features alone have given me the opportunity to work for 8-9 hours a day on manuscripts without having to pay for it with terrible migraines every night—as far as I'm concerned, you haven't just created a great piece of software—you've honestly improved my quality of life, and for that I'll be forever thankful and indebted to you for the rest of my life."

3 March 2006, Florida, USA

Kenneth Papp

"I write metadata for a state geological survey and EditPad Pro allows me to do this with ease. Many projects require multiple metadata files, so features such as tab-switching between multiple files, save all, spell-check all, multi-file comparisons and statistics, and within-page bookmarks are wonderful to have and use in a text editor. Keep up the great work!"

14 September 2005, Alaska, USA

Karel Behounek

"It is true that US$ 40 may seem too much for a "notepad replacement" to someone, but EditPad Pro is definitely worth it, I have tried maybe eight different editors before, but yours does everything I need, and does it conveniently and very fast.

"Just this week I was looking for some diff tool to compare versions of (PL/SQL) source code I tried a few and then discovered that there is some included within EditPad, and discovered that it is very convenient for me (one document with red/green differences is much better than looking to and fro from left to right like in most specialized diff tools).

"The same applies to your hex editor, and so on. I am happy that I have found this one."

26 April 2005, Czech Republic

Bernd Baier

"I just want to let you know that I love your EditPad Software :-)

"I just purchased EditPad Pro from your website and it is fantastic. I can tell you ... in regards to creating websites ... EditPad Pro is the ultimate webpage designer. It beats Macromedia Dreamweaver with ease.

"I was working with EditPad Lite for almost (I think) three years for all text editing I do on my three computers and it was just the best Editor I ever had ... well at least until the point I upgraded to the Pro-Version. Since I started to do some websites with html and php I wished the Lite version had different colors for html and php tags ... and see, [the Pro version] DOES. And not only that! I appreciate the fair licensing policy that I am allowed to install it on all my three computers (2x personal PCs and 1x Laptop)"

12 March 2005, Georgia, USA

Justin Michael Evans

"I have been using EditPad Pro for a long time, and find it to be the best text editor out there, especially for programming. Even editors specific to the language I am programming in don't compare to the quality and ease of use of EditPad Pro. Keep up the good work."

"I bought the EditPad Pro package and I am a very satisfied user. I am a totally blind user and this package, I think, is simply fantastic for the visually impaired users. The features such as selecting a block of text, inserting the whole text of an external file at a certain point, appending selected text to the clipboard are simply fantastic and the package has made my life no end easier which really drives me to say that it is worth every cent of its price."

Comments on EditPad Pro 4

"It's as if they studied all those popular text editors and developed a brand new one that's even better. (What a concept!)"

"I've been using EditPad for may years, now, and was satisfied with my first version of EditPad Pro. You have continued to make a great product better. It has been one of the best software purchases I've ever made and is definitely one of the best tools in my box. Thanks! It really is Just Great Software!"

"First of all I just want to say I have had Edit Pad Pro and upgrades for I think going on 2 maybe 3 years now and this is by FAR the BEST investment I have ever made.

"There is literally not one THING I can suggest to make this product any better or even improve upon. I have even tried others such as Vim, Macromedia DreamWeaver, Edit Geneii, Coffee Cup Editor and a few others and they don't even come close to the rich features, ease of use and user friendly without taking away any power to compensate for the user friendliness, not ONE of them or even all combined. Also Edit Pad Pro unlike the others is very "kind" to system resources which this alone is a major plus all in itself.

"I was very surprised to see just how many of My friends were using Edit Pad Lite and My first recommendation was "Spend the money and get PRO, you CAN'T go wrong, not like its really all that expensive compared to all you get in return". I really do hope this has helped with Your company and business, but also just as important My friends can have the full features that Pro has to offer. I have even highly suggested its use to My company which is a major machine tool shop in the US in Kentucky for their office systems for designing the software for the lathes and mills We make.

"[...] Again, I most kindly thank You and especially Jan Goyvaerts for creating the best product to ever be in existence for Text editing and please PLEASE keep up the excellent work!!!"

"I got involved in the web with Perl Programming back in 1997. I hated using Notepad because it was very cumbersome. Then I found EditPad. I have been using it exclusively ever since. Sure, from time to time I've tried other text editors that promised to be the cure for all my ills but none of them ever held a candle to your extremely well written, versatile, DEPENDABLE and efficient product called EditPad Pro. Heck, the search and replace and go to line numbers are worth their weight in gold. The schemes for Perl scripts have made my work and absolute breeze now for editing and debugging.

"Keep up the excellent work, I'll be a life long customer!"

"Jan, we use your EditPad Pro product everyday in our very successful engagement ring e-commerce business. It is used in the most mission critical function we perform daily, our updating of our product database of over 4,000 platinum & gold rings and over 9,000 certified diamonds. We use it for a lot of other functions too, but not as important as our life blood.

"It is the simplest yet most complete text editor to use, and we have tried a bunch of them. Thank you for creating and providing such an outstanding product. Our livelihood depends on it daily."

"Thanks for all your work, I, at least, greatly appreciate it and think that you have a *great* product here. I'd truly feel lost without it."

"Let me begin by saying that I really really like EditPad Pro. It is everything I ever wished NotePad could be, and more. You have even incorporated the best of utilities like diff, grep, and regular expressions! This program has already saved me weeks of tedious work. I will be registering my copy as soon as I get my next paycheck."

Rode (Hold No Punches)

"I have been running both EditPad Pro and Lite in Windows 98SE2 and Windows 2000 for a couple of months and haven't experienced a single glitch, hang, or bug. Everything works as it should, there is lots of help when you need it and EditPad behaves like a well tuned Porsche. You may find a free text editor with more features, but if speed, ease of use, and problem free operation is what you want in your text editor then EditPad Lite is the logical choice. I think it is the best free text editor available. If you are a programmer, or use your text editor as a lightweight word processor, then EditPad Pro is a good choice at a fair price.

"Either way you can't go wrong with EditPad!"

Michael J. Wilson

"I purchased EditPad several years ago and I must say I have always been very satisfied with the product. Even beta versions have been a joy to use. The support has been and remains excellent. Your product stands out head and shoulders above the crowd. I can't tell you just how helpful the relatively recent addition of the "Project" menu has been to me. Please let Mr. Jan Goyvaerts know that he has produced a wonderful product and I look forward to supporting his efforts in the years to come."

"I was just sitting here, working away and it occurred to me that EditPad Pro is one of the applications I use the most. I've been using EditPad for years—it is just a wonderful piece of software.

"It is so refreshing to have an affordable program that works as it is supposed to and is full of great USEFUL features—unlike so many other products on the market today.

"I just wanted to say thank you for a job well done. I don't know what I would do without it."

Just a short note to say thank you for all of your hard work on EditPad Pro. I am one of a number of blind people who use and appreciate your products. EditPad Pro enables me to do things I would not otherwise be able to do in working on my website.

"I have been using your EditPad, and EditPad Pro for several years now. I really like the fact that you offer such fine support and get back to your users very fast! I also love the ease of operation in doing global changes to HTML code. I have tried other products, and have also used Windows Notepad, but I was always frustrated when I wanted to work on more than one page at a time, and had to keep closing and reopening my editor.

"This product is first class and it really is great because it even lets you know when you have not saved a page, as the color of the tab is different. The reopen function is also great that it helps you remember what page you last edited.

"I would advise everyone to get this valuable tool to do all their text, html and other editing and programming with. This is a fantastic tool for the price you are charging, and the updates you get for FREE are a real blessing!

"You have my support now and for the entire Future!"

"I purchased EditPad Pro not too long ago, and I am just writing you to tell you that it has saved me a tremendous amount of time! At first I didn't notice anything that would really help me out, but after using it a few weeks, It really shows up. I like your program better and better each day I use it. Some of the key things that help me save time are: Spell checking all open documents, Find and Replace all open documents (These save an ungodly amount of time!). The main reason I purchased your software at first was because Notepad doesn't have enough space for most of my pages and sometimes I would be forced to use WordPad, and this was horrible. Anyways, Thank you greatly for making a program to make my job a lot easier, with less hassle and frustration. No Editor compares with yours. Keep up the good work!"

Herman van Beek

"Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I really appreciate using your program. During the past three weeks I've been using it at a rate of 10-15 hours per day.

"I'm working on a fairly large Perl/JavaScript/html project where I have to switch often between 6 to 10 routines; having tabs at the top has made it a breeze to do so. The undo capability has also saved me many a time! I'm looking forward to learn the other capabilities of the program as I use it more frequently.

"After almost 20 years of using a proprietary DOS based text editor, I've finally found a product that provides me with a real productivity boost!"

In short: "EditPadPro—It IS great software!"

Matthew Lonergan

"I have been using EditPad for several years and wanted to compliment you on both the original, and this kick-ass professional version. I rarely find a shareware product I feel good about paying for, but EditPad Pro is outstanding.

"The new feature I am using the most is the mail function. Simple and fast. [...]

"Keep it small and fast and I will use EditPad forever."

You Need EditPad Pro To Edit Text Files

If you work with text files on your computer on a regular basis, you will not be able to imagine how you got along without EditPad Pro once you have it. Certainly not after a couple of heavy text editing sessions during which you will experience EditPad Pro's true power: it has everything you need, but nothing that may get in your way. Depending on the payment method you prefer, you can have EditPad Pro delivered almost instantly. If you think all text editors are the same, you should at least try out the free evaluation version for a couple of weeks.
