Customizable notepad with extended functionality

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.

DocPad is a superior alternative to Notepad. Although it fills the same role, plain text editing, it has many advantages.

DocPad is a free alternative to Notepad. Although it fills the same role, plain text editing, it offers an arsenal of time-saving tools: block indent/unindent, bookmarking, case conversion, customizable toolbar, encoding conversion, file backups, file history, jump to line/offset, keyboard macros, print preview, search and replace, skinnable interface, spell checking, statistics, variable pitch font, and much more. It also includes a built-in calculator, calendar, and character map. DocPad is pure freeware, does not display advertisements, and does not install third party apps.
