You can specify many print settings: font, margins, headers/footers, etc. and immediately see the effects in the print preview. You have the option to keep the EditPad window on top of all other windows.
When you close an unsaved file, EditPad will either warn you or automatically save the file as you prefer.
Reopen menu that lists the last 16 files opened. EditPad puts an icon in the system tray that remains visible, even if EditPad is closed. This way you have easy and fast access to EditPad, without the need to keep it running all the time. If you do not like this, you can, of course, disable this feature and make EditPad behave like a normal Windows application.
EditPad fully supports double byte character systems (DBCS) so you can edit texts written in Far East languages, such as Chinese, Japanese or Korean, as easily as those written in European languages. The only requirement is that your Windows version must support DBCS as well. All editions of Windows 2000 and XP support all these languages. You only need to install the appropriate language packs through the regional settings in the control panel. Under Windows 95, 98, ME and NT4, your copy of Windows must be in the same Far East language as the one you want to write in.
Many settings such as word wrap, line numbering and auto indent can be made for each file type individually. You could activate word wrap but not auto indent when editing a plain text file, and just the other way around when editing source code. You can also define your own file types which will be used to build the filters for open and save dialog boxes.
EditPad reads and writes UNIX (LF only) and Mac (CR only) text files (in addition to DOS/Win CR+LF files, of course).
ROT-13 standard used on the Usenet for making (possibly) offensive texts illegible.
Uppercase, lowercase, invert case and initial caps conversion
ANSI <=> OEM (DOS ASCII) conversion allowing you to continue using old files created under DOS.
