Different tasks require different tools. When developing software, you want automatic indentation, line numbering, etc. When writing a letter, memo or web page, you want long paragraphs to be nicely word wrapped and you want to use a nice proportionally spaced font.
Many advanced text editors only cater to programmers. They can only use fixed-width fonts and have limited word wrapping capabilities. That is fine when you are programming. But it is silly to spend money on an advanced text editor that cannot handle all your text editing tasks. The reason why many programmer’s editors have no or limited support for proportional fonts and word wrapping is that those features are difficult to combine with programming features. But EditPad Lite proves that the combination is perfectly possible.
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.
