EditPad Lite is a compact general-purpose text editor. EditPad Lite is extremely configurable. Many settings can be made per file type. This allows you to automatically enable coding features when you are editing source code, while enabling other writing features when you are editing other text files. EditPad Lite sports one of the most extensive search-and-replace features of any text editor. Quickly find the part of the file you want to edit. Automate much tedious editing with clever use of EditPad Lite’s search-and-replace. EditPad Lite handles DOS/Windows, UNIX/Linux and Macintosh line breaks. Open and save text files encoded in Unicode (UTF-8, UTF-16 and UTF-32), any Windows code page, any ISO-8859 code page, and a variety of DOS, Mac, EUC, EBCDIC, and other legacy code pages. Convert files between any of these encodings.
EditPad Lite is free for personal use only. If you use EditPad Lite at home or at school for purposes that don’t generate money, you can download the free version of EditPad Lite without any kind of payment or registration.
EditPad Lite has all the essential features to make text editing a breeze

- Spell checker: Learned words that are not entirely lowercase are now case sensitive just like words in the main dictionary.
- Text Layout Configuration: Disable character width option when the text layout is not monospaced to indicate that it won’t be used.
- Spell checker: Automatic suggestions for a misspelled word that is all lowercase now preserve the case the suggested word has in the dictionary instead of making it lowercase.
- Spell checker: Learned replacements that only change the case of a word no longer highlight occurrences of the word with the corrected case as misspelled.
- The ellipsis character U+2026 was changed into a line break when copied to the clipboard by EditPad from a file that does not exclusively use CRLF line breaks and pasted into an application that’s not from Just Great Software.
- View|Browser in some situations used the browser that was previously associated with .html files instead of the browser currently associated with .html files, depending on how the file association was changed.
