EditPad Pro’s search and replace function shows an extra pane inside the EditPad Pro window, rather than causing a second pane to float on top of EditPad Pro, obscuring your work until you get it out of the way. Usually you will use EditPad Pro maximized, so the editing area is only slightly reduced. The spell checker, character map and email use similar panes.
EditPad Pro’s built-in file managers are neatly tucked away in handy side panels. They don’t get in your way when you don’t use them, and readily available when you need them.
