Publisher's Description

NoteTab Pro is a leading-edge text editor and HTML coding tool, and an ideal Notepad replacement. This elegant application does it all: it can handle multiple large files with a simple tabbed interface, use a spell-checker and thesaurus, format text, use multiple undo, and bookmark documents. You can build templates, use powerful system-wide searches, and do global multi-line replacements.

A long time aqo, it was a great program, now it is showing it's age, and the worst is that the author ceased development and support a long time ago.

It's very fast, it's very stable.
It has every feature you can wish for in an text editor (it's not programmer's editor)
but still feels sleek and clean.
Good regex support, good scripting, good search/replace in diskfiles.
Outlines are great.
That's really a serious tool to get your work down.

Remark 1
All these so called "notepad-replacements" are missing one big thing:
The possibility
- to chose the screen-font for the whole document at once
- by means of a font-scroll-down box like in word or wordpad or alike.

Remark 2
A lot of them are so huge in size that I cannot call them notepad replacements aymore.

Remark 3
A notepad replacement should in m.h.o. offer the following
- small application (notepad is only 64.5K)
- no file-size limitation
- a toolbar
- an easy (screen)font selection via the toolbar
- a page-setup possibility to make printing more user friendly.

And that's it.

Excellent program! Very customizable, solid application. I use CF Studio for HTML and CF, but turn to Notetab for scripting and manipulating huge text files. The only time I have experienced a slightly slow load is when I accidently left a 4 meg XML files open in it with 12 other large text files. My mistake!

What the hell is a Pre Release? It's not a beta, not a RC, not on their homepage. The hell with it.

The library tool bar at the bottom is a great idea. However, when you don't edit HTML file, NTP is less interesting. At the time I tried it, there was no color syntax for other languages and I wonder if there is regular expression search and replace, rectangular zone selection. When I asked the author to add the shell context menu (Explorer right-click, open with NoteTab). He answer me that he doesn't like it b/c the context menu will be too much loaded. And he advised that right-click, send to, NoteTab is good enough (but actually requires 1 more click and 1 more mouse scroll). He seemed not very willing to even considerer to make the right-click optional. Strange way of providing support. Try UltraEdit, it may be less powerful for HTML, but IMHO better for other types of file. And the tech support is wonderful.

1. build-in language
2. customizable toolbars
3. works great with Perl (there is support also for Gawk, but i don't know Gawk)
4. bookmarks, outline format etc. etc.

Show me another with such power!

I have been using Notetab for the last year and love it. Better than Notepad for simple text editing and has a great scripting language built in. Can't see any reason people wouldn't replace Notepad with this great program!

Oops quick clarification. Jody Aldair wrote a macro for use with wsftple, not the macro interpreter.

Although overall is a pretty good replacement for Notepad, with nice, useful interesting features, it HAS major drawbacks counting him out the race with more advanced text editors. I mean, hey, every respectable editor has customizable syntax coloring for several languages, not only HTML (while having only HTML syntax coloring, FTP file operations should be a must-to).
Bottom line? If you just want a Notepad replacement, think about something else (at least something that starts faster). If you're a programmer, go for an editor with serious features.
