The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.5
EditPlus is a text, hex, PHP, Java, and HTML editor which includes a well distributed interface that displays the necessary information according to the type of text you are working with.
You can check the text code with its line numbers and syntax highlighting - HTML, PHP, Java, C/C++, CSS, ASP, Perl, JavaScript and VBScript are supported - and preview, at the same time, the output for HTML pages.

With its toolbars, you can execute many useful predefined general and HTML commands just right at your hand, but it also lets you create and configure your own commands in a personal toolbar.

Among other useful features, you can find auto-completion, cliptext, searching and replacing, FTP editing, and many templates. Besides, the information can be displayed according to your needs, e.g., directory window, document selector, clip text window, output window, etc.

As an extra feature, you can use a spell checker that comes in a US version or UK version, which have to be downloaded and installed separately.

In conclusion, with this useful and complete text editor you can exploit its extensive features and generate different projects at the same time.
