A reliable text editor

Textpad is an application developed by Helios Software Solutions where you can type, paste, and edit plain text. It is similar to Notepad and is very helpful for making web pages, editing codes, and IDE programming.  

This tool is well received by many computer programmers because it is easy and not complicated to use. It also allows you to create and open multiple documents without another window appearing, unlike other typing programs. If you create a new document, a new tab will appear instead of another window. This way, it will be easier for you to multitask and jump from one document to another. To better keep track of all your works, a list of documents will appear at the left side of your window so you would not have to browse through each individual tab that may have already covered the others from plain sight. The best thing about this application is its clip library where different symbols can be found. These symbols will prove to be a necessity when making codes and programming. For them to be just a click away truly brings convenience at our doorstep.

TextPad is designed to provide the power and functionality to satisfy the most demanding text editing requirements. It is Windows hosted, and comes in 16 and 32-bit editions.

Huge files can be edited by either - just choose the edition that works best with your PC. The 32-bit edition can edit files up to the limits of virtual memory, and it will work with Windows 9x, ME, NT 4, 2000 and XP.

TextPad has been implemented according to the Windows XP user interface guidelines, so great attention has been paid to making it easy for both beginners and experienced users.

In-context help is available for all commands, and in-context menus pop-up with the right mouse button. The Windows multiple document interface allows multiple files to be edited simultaneously, with up to 2 views on each file.

Text can be dragged and dropped between files.

Frequently used combinations of commands can be saved as keystroke macros, and the spelling checker has dictionaries for 10 languages.

It also has a customizable tools menu, and integral file compare and search commands, with hypertext jumps from the matched text to the corresponding line in the source file (ideal for integrating compilers).
