EditPad Lite is a general-purpose text editor, designed to be small and compact, yet offer all the functionality you expect from a basic text editor. EditPad Lite works with Windows NT4, 98, 2000, ME, XP and Vista.
- HTML content-type meta tag and XML declaration checks should offerto
change the meta tag or declaration to indicate the encoding used in EditPad,
to save the file as is (reinterpreting it using the encoding from the meta
tag or XML declaration in EditPad), or to cancel the save, instead of merely
presenting an error message.
- Portable installation: Lists of files previously opened files should
survive changing drive letters.
- Word wrap: Allow text to be wrapped after any ideograph, even if there
is no whitespace.
- Windows 7: Disable EditPad's icon next to the system clock by default,
as Windows 7 hides all notification icons by default.
- Windows 7: Show full window caption in the tasbar button's popup menu,
instead of the shortened caption that appears directly on the button in
previous versions of Windows. In Windows 7, the taskbar only shows the icon,
and the popup menu has plenty of space for the full caption.
- Editor: Avoid clipping of (italic) characters with overhang.
- Editor: Spacing combining marks (Unicode category Mc) are no longer
allowed to be separated from their base characters. This improves editing of
text in South Asian scripts, such as Devanagari, that use spacing combining
- EditPad fails to restore itself after begin minimized if the active file
is modified in EditPad and has been modified on disk by another application.
- File Types: Changing the word wrapping setting in the file type
configuration (i.e. for all files of that type, rather than for the current
file via the Options menu) would crash EditPad if a file of that type was
open but not the active file, and that file was larger than 64K, and the
changed setting required a change in word wrapping for that file.
- File|Rename/Move did not rename the file if the new name was the same as
the old one, except for differences in case.
- HTML content-type meta tag check is now more accurate, so it checks only
HTML files, and not on other files storing random bits of HTML that happent
to include a content-type meta tag.
- In some situations, the text cursor became invisible until you switched
keyboard focus within EditPad, such as by opening or clicking on the Search
- Pressing the delete key while at the same time making a selection with
the mouse caused an access violation.
- Scrolling a file by dragging the scroll bar's thumb immediately after
opening the file did not always allow the end of the file to be reached,
even if EditPad has already finished scanning it for line breaks. Making any
scrolling or cursor movement (using the scroll bar or not) would update the
scroll bar to allow the thumb to scroll through all lines in the file.
- Shift+Tab deleted the whole selection if the selection was on a single
line, and there was whitespace to the left of the cursor. Only the
whitespace should be deleted, up to one tab stop in size.
