"By adding an HL7.uew file, UltraEdit can read the HL7 file segment and content color them correctly.
The fixed Column mode also is very useful in spacing the file for viewing.
And increase font side helps as well, in small meeting with team members to point out the findings.
These three functions above make UltraEdit the GoTo Editing tool on Windows."
File conversions (Unix/DOS, DOS/UNIX, MAC/DOS, etc), Base 64, etc.
SFTP editing on remote servers
Ability to create custom macros to do the heavy lifting when editing large files.
Ability to create custom scripts that put my name and other header information at the top of files.
Find and replace across multiple open files.
"I appreciate the ability to use word files to customize syntax highlighting and the seamless integration of UltraEdit with UltraCompare.
The ability to mas change files in a directory has saved me countless hours in the middle of the night while on-call."
Senior Systems Analyst/DBA - Hospital & Health Care
Great for working on interface flat files and bulk updates
"This tool has been a lifesaver working with files to send to different vendors and reporting agencies. From having line and character counts to doing text editing by column not just by row. Being able to switch into hex mode for troubleshooting hidden attributes. I bought my lifetime subscription and have never regretted it. "
"Many times, working with pure data. Changes have to be made to 10's or thousands of lines at once. With Ultra Edit I can do that. With other systems that I've looked at, don't have the features that EU has and something's would take a programmer to develop. "
"The merging of files, really saves time for us. I work for a non profit submitting lines of code for payment and find that I can merge like files in to one. It saves editing time and time to send for paymant."
Excellent re-introduction to this mutli-faceted editor
"As an interface analyst I often need speed & the ability to compare & UE provides both. The customization / theme features give me the ability to quickly characterize different file types to make editing easier."
"I have been an UltraEdit user for over 10 years and along the way tried several different editors but find that UE continues to be the best one out there and my go to editor. The UI is great, their support is top notch and it handles large files which is a must for my work. "
Sr. Database Administrator - Hospital & Health Care
UltraEdit has been my teams go to from it's early days.
"I wear many hats from sys admin, programmer, dba, data prep and analysis. UltraEdit has been my teams go to from it's early days, UltraEdt32! Key features that sold me were the syntax highlighting, regular expression search and replace, column editing, hex editing, file compare and support/speed for very large files, even networked files. It also understands Linux and DOS line endings. This..."
"It's just a great all around text editor. It's -- most importantly -- fast, has all the features you want and doesn't have a lot of extra junk you'll never use. The macro support is excellent, the scripting is easy without being cryptic, and the little tricks you learn will save you hours. Alt-C (block select) is my favorite feature!"
"I have been a long time user since 2005 version 11.0 and over the years the developers of UltraEdit has improved many of the features accessible by user friendly drop menus. I initially purchased this program to work with a stats program and it was not difficult to take advantage of some of the features when I was first learning to use it. "
"The constant improvements in functionality. Back when I purchased a lifetime license, it as a big expense. But the continued progress the tool has made, has made it in invaluable tool in my workflow."
Sr. Programmer, Healthcare Analyst - Hospital & Health Care
UltraEdit is my favored text editor and more
"It is easy to use, and it does what I need to use it for. I like to cut text tid-bits in column mode replicate just a portion of my code. I use Find in Files a lot, no better alternative for it. I UltraCompare versions of programs. I search&replace in files, a must to have. It has never failed me, my best programming aid."
"This is a versatile editor and I use it daily. There are a number of features that use so often that I take them for granted - when I use a machine that doesn't have it installed I have to think of a workaround for UltraEdit's built in features. Column mode is awesome, copy and append to clipboard is great, copy to clipboard from a search is fantastic. Search and replace is quite versatile."
Global AbbottLink Specialist - Hospital & Health Care
A perfect add-on for any developer
"Ultra Edit is a fast (very) text editor. It is one of the tools I use on a daily base. I use all my text, Json manipulation. I really love VS 2017 but If I need to quickly view a single .cs, I do it with UE.
Ultra Edit is also a very flexible editor
I also recommend Ultra Compare."
Business Application Analyst - Hospital & Health Care
My Favorite Editor
"Ease of use and flexibility. I have tried other products and always come back to Ultra Edit. I especially appreciate the ability to customize almost everything I have been using this tool for years and it has only gotten better with each update."
