You may be wondering why would you need another notepad, if Windows already includes one. Well, the answer is simple: DocPad is much more than a simple notepad and includes several extra tools that make it an interesting alternative to the Windows standard one.
These advanced capabilities include a 10-level undo, support for bookmarks, a complete search and replace tool, the ability to create statistics about words, lines or paragraphs and support for drag-and-drop files, amongst others.
DocPad also includes several extra tools like a calculator, a calendar or a color picker. All of these functionalities are conveniently accessible through the program's menu.
Together with its extended capabilities, DocPad also enables you to customize its appearance with skins. So even if it's only to edit plain text files, forget about the basic Windows Notepad and move on to a more advanced editor.
