Light Edit is an advanced easy-to-use source code editor for Windows. Although it can serve as a good replacement for Notepad, it also offers many powerful features for programmers and Web-page authors.

The main features of Light Edit:

  • Syntax highlighting: Syntax schemes for most common languages (HTML, XML, C, C++, C#, Object Pascal, Java, Perl, various SQL dialects and procedural extensions, PHP and others) are included. You can develop new and personalized syntax highlighting schemes and design colors used for highlighting.
  • Unlimited text and line size: Light Edit is fast and effective even with large files.
  • Bookmarks simplify navigation through the text.
  • Columnar and stream blocks used for copying/pasting operations.
  • Search and replace operations: All common search and replace operations are supported. You can specify various search/replace options, such as case sensitivity or search range.
  • Drag-and-drop helps to edit text inside the control. You can make a selection and place it to a new position.
  • Undo/Redo: There is no limit on undo and redo operations. Undo helps to roll back changes to the text. Multiple/Group undo and redo operations supported also.
  • Gutter, margins, line numbers: These interface features are widely used in Delphi/C++ Builder IDE. All settings of gutter and margin can be easily customized as you may change gutter size and fill color, set the new gutter position and color, or toggle line numbers.
  • Word wrap: If you are working on the text with long lines, word wrap feature becomes extremely useful. You will not need to scroll far any more - since all long lines will be wrapped to fit the size of editing control.
  • Environment settings dialog: This dialog can be used to customize editor control at runtime.
  • Command line support: For example: lightedit.exe myfile0.txt myfile1.txt myfile2.txt.
  • Modern GUI: Customizable soft GUI will help at working process.
