EverEdit is a powerful Notepad replacement with a lengthy list of interesting and unusual features.

The program is a compact download, and as it's portable, just unzip the contents somewhere and you're ready to open your first file. Which can be in just about any encoding, as EverEdit has full Unicode support. And, surprisingly, you can even open binary files, and view them in the program's simple hex editor.

Mostly EverEdit is about plain text editing, though, taking a core Notepad-type functionality and just layering on the extras. Like a very flexible tabbed interface; template support for faster document creation; regular expression support when searching; dragging and dropping to move text around; customisable toolbars, syntax highlighting, code folding, spell checking, and the list goes on.

There are some surprisingly powerful features, too, considering the editor's compact size. Like an HTML Mode, with toolbar buttons to help you more quickly create tables, forms, lists and so on, as well as an internal browser to view the file you're working on. Then there's the embedded VBS/JScript script engine, macros, plugins and more.

We did also have a few problems with the program. It's missing a few of the options you might find in some of the competition (there's no multiple clipboards, for instance). The functionality you do get isn't always organised intuitively, either, so we'd occasionally spend quite some time figuring out how to do something.

Version 4.0.0.4376:
Fixed: Column/Multiple selection issues
Fixed: Wrong vertical split icon of 32x32 toolbar.
Fixed: Custom tools couldn’t be saved correctly
Fixed: Focus problem of goto anything window.
Fixed: Some issues of markdown mode.
Improved: HTML syntax highlight on matching %
Improved: In goto anything window, you can hold shift or Ctrl key to open a file in new tab
Improved: Some issues of addon manager.

Verdict:

EverEdit is a very capable Notepad replacement, but whether it's worth the $35 price tag - even as a lifetime licence - isn't quite so clear.
