AkelPad Review

Editors' Pick

An open source editor for plain text and suitable replacement for Notepad


A review of AkelPad by Fernando Ortega

AkelPad Editor is an alternative Notepad to the one which comes preinstalled with Windows. It includes many different enhancements to the original Notepad.exe and is effectively much more powerful.

Besides the fact that AkelPad Editor supports everything Notepad does, it also supports multi-tasking, opening recent files, reopening documents, parsing a document into all UPPER or lower case, changes the font and background colors and much, much more.

Another great thing about AkelPad is the fact that you can add addition features to the program through the use of free plugins available -- or you can create your own.

When installing the application, you're given the option to either replace the currently installed Windows Notepad (notepad.exe) or install it as a separate application.

In the end, this program is a beast of a notepad and highly recommended to anybody who uses Windows' Notepad often.

AkelPad features and highlights:
  • Single window (SDI), multi-window (MDI) and pseudo multi-window modes (PMDI);
  • Full support of Unicode strings on Unicode systems
  • Support of Unicode codepages
  • Support of any codepage installed in the system
  • Support of DOS/Windows, Unix and Mac newline formats
  • Preview file open
  • Correct pseudographics displaying
  • Column text selection
  • Multi-level undo
  • Fast search/replace text strings
  • Remember file codepage and caret position
  • Printing of a document and print preview
  • Support of language modules
  • Plugins support (syntax highlighting, folding, auto-completion, scripts execution, keyboard macros and much more)

AkelPad is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from text editors without restrictions. AkelPad 4.8.8 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
