Though not designed exclusively for software programmers, EditPad Lite is a plain text editor with enough editing functionality to help developers to perform their coding tasks in a convenient and highly efficient way. However, its clever safety features (automatic backup, unlimited undo and redo options, etc.), its support for multiple text encodings and file types are certainly of use for anyone in need of creating and editing plain text files on a regular basis.

This tiny, resource-saving application comes with a set of useful features that will surely save you typing time, such as the Clip Collection. This clever feature is nothing but a permanent clipboard where you can store text snippets, code templates, tags, etc., that you use more often in your texts so that you don’t have to type them over and over again. A clip can be, for instance, a piece of text, a layout tag, or a pair of formatting tags that can be placed before and after the text selected. You can move an unlimited number of clips to the collection, and drag them back directly onto the text or via keyboard shortcuts.

Typing automation is only part of its beauty. One of the assets that programmers will value most refers to the program’s safety-related features. It allows you to create as many backups of a certain file as you need, and keep them for as long as you wish. You can even compare backups, and return to them easily whenever you need. The autos-save options provided, together with the ability to perform unlimited undo and redo actions even once the file has been saved, are of great importance not only to programmers but to anyone working with sensitive information.

EditPad Lite can be fully configured to fit all your needs and requirements. You can define your own editing, cursor, search, open and save files, tabs, panels, keyboard, shortcuts, and system options, as well as associate specific file types to EditPad Lite, among other customization features. Be it to cover your programming needs or to give shape to your creative spree, EditPad Lite is a small-sized, resource-saving editor that takes plain text creation and editing to the next level.
