HTMLPad 2015 11.0

HTMLPad 2015 Editor's Review

HTMLPad is a powerful web page editor. It has an impressive set of features, allowing you to edit HTML files quickly and easily. However, this program is designed for advanced users, because it doesn't support WYSIWYG mode.

In fact, this program allows you to edit HTML, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, and even PHP code. The editor supports automatic command completion. If you need to force the editor to complete your commands (text), you can always press CTRL+SPACE to view a list of suggested items.

The user interface is well designed, although it may take a bit until you learn what each toolbar button does. I used the main menu mostly to insert, modify, or edit my code. Depending where you are inside the code, you might not have access to certain functions. For example, when you place the cursor inside the tag, you won't be able to insert HTML tables.

Pluses: A feature that I used is the "Publish to FTP" ability. Be aware that you need to define a new project (specify its root folder), before you can upload files using the FTP protocol.

Drawbacks / flaws: I received a "Memory access violation" error message while using the application. However, I couldn't replicate the error.

In conclusion: I think HTMLPad is a good choice if you need a HTML editor provided you already have a good knowledge about HTML programming. I don't think this software is for novice users.
