AkelPad 4.7.4

AkelPad - is an open source editor for plain text. It is designed to be a small and fast. Although AkelPad is written as a text editor, its use of available plugins provides considerably more power than NotePad. AkelPad displays text using a specially designed control, AkelEdit, a replacement for Windows' Rich Edit control, which gives AkelPad additional control over text display and behavior.

AkelPad features:

  • Single window (SDI), multi-window (MDI) and pseudo multi-window modes (PMDI)
  • Full support of Unicode strings on Unicode systems (NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista/Seven)
  • Support of Unicode codepages (UTF-8, UTF-16LE, UTF-16BE, UTF-32LE, UTF-32BE)
  • 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).

What's new in this version:

  • Changed: Unicode files without BOM now displayed as "without BOM" instead of "*BOM".
  • Added: support for regular expressions in find/replace dialog.

I used to use this before I switched to Notepad++. It's great if you want a better text editor to replace Notepad (there's even an option in the installer to do this), but without the complexity of Notepad++.

Many of the features you see in the screenshot are actually plugins; Akelpad is quite basic without them. So you can make it as simple or as complex as need be.

think i'll stay with notepad++, miles better!

Personally I stick with NFOPad. When it's a notepad REPLACEMENT, 2-3 second load is unacceptable. Then it just becomes a text editor.
