[NTO] Comparing EditPad and Notetab?
- I use EditPad for the print preview with its headers and footers and page numbers,
so that a clip in NoteTab copies all the text and launches EditPad, from where the
text is pasted in and print previewing can begin the process of printing. If I print
with NoteTab the computer freezes afterwards; if I print with MS Word and
NoteTab is left open the computer freezes. I text process and HTML create with
NoteTab but never print with NoteTab.
- I have been using EditPad a long time,
and have also used MoteTab, but on and off.
These are both great programs. I tend to stick
to EditPad beacsue I like its simplicity.
With rare exceptions, it does what I need.
I agree, it has above average print control
for a so-called "text editor."
NoteTab has the bility (as I recall)
to mark a columan block of text.
That's a big deal when you need it.
The NoteTab "clips" macro language
has never caught my imagination.
I confess I have not tried to learn it,
and I actually can learn a new scripting
language fairly quickly. I admit...
syntax doesn't appeal to me. ;) But I know
Jody can write almost anything as a clip.
He prolly has a compiler for C he wrote
as a NoteTab clip. ;)
To conclkude my ramble, EditPad feels "light"
to me, and NoteTab, for all its power, feels
I am ashamed to admit, more and more
I just use MS Word. I HATE That!!!
p.s. for years anmd years I stuck with
the Norton Editor, written bvy my frind
Stan Reifel. But DOS eventually faded away,
and he quit enhancing it. Man was it ever
small and simle and fast! It was LIGHT. ;)
