"Superb For Large Files"

What do you like best?

Without a shadow of a doubt the best thing about EmEditor is its ability to open extremely large text files very quickly which most other editors i've tried struggle with or just simply can't do. There is also a completely free version that has a limited set of options.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure i use it enough to warrant getting the paid version which seems quite pricey in its various price package guises. Could do with more formatting addins/options like Notepad++. The free version lacks nice column alignment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it in conjunction with Notepad++ (also free), between the two of them it should meet all your editor needs for creating, opening and viewing any type of text file

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest issue i had before discovering EmEditor was the ability to open very large text files and be able to search within them, Notepad++ just wasn't cutting it. EmEditor is superb for opening large files, it is definitely the best free text editor out there for that (I tried many)
