  • What's your Text Editor?

    A few of us debated over the best text editor for day to day use. I like UltraEdit myself but most of my colleagues prefer NotePad++. Tell us which one you prefer among these 3 common eDiscovery text editors

    Sorry, I like neither Ultraedit, nor Notepad++. I find TextPad much better than either of them.

      I've been using Notepad++ for over a decade, myself, and love the functionality it offers not just for working with load files and legal data, but also for working with code files for SQL and other languages.

        Gus, I agree--Notepad++ was pretty essential when I was coding SQL.

          TextPad fan here, mostly because I've been using it for 15+ years. That said, if you need to edit docs with Unicode, you kind of have to use UltraEdit.

          Another advantage of Textpad, it does not lock the file.

              I've used textpad for over 10 years. I also like EM Editor. I can open 25GB text files with any encoding whatsoever. It also does not lock the file.

                I bounce between Notepad++ and Textpad. I've been using both for over a decade, for SQL queries, ++ is my favorite. I didn't know that about the MS-dos Command prompt trick in Textpad!

                  I only very recently started using Notepad ++ whose interface reminds me of Visual Studio. It's too early for me to have an informed opinion about it but I'd have to agree with jdudley. Probably would just switch between Notepad++ and Textpad.

                    I have been kind of forced to use Editpad or notepad+, but I miss my beloved Textpad
