    Fantastic Editor, Fantastic Customer Service and FANTASTIC PEOPLE!

    03/25/2019
    "Where to start? I've used this product since I started needing editors. It was amazing. Then they got into the macros and I would get stuck trying to write custom ones I wanted - their customer service would give me all the help I needed. Then I found out that they donate money to charities - and the founder really cares passionately about helping. I don't like any one thing best -..."

    IDM Software, Ultracompare, UltraFTP, & Ultraedit

    02/14/2018
    "The software works, and works well. It does exactly what it claims to do without any nonsense. And it's fast. The "All-Access" subscription is excellent; a real deal-breaker for me given I use at least three of the IDM products on a regular basis (Ultraedit daily, Ultracompare occasionally, UltraFTP weekly)."

    Ultraedit and Uestudio is highly customizable

    01/09/2019
    "The syntax can be customized easily, especially for software come without syntax file. For example, I need do programming in Simion 8.1, a software for simulation of electron optics. Since a modified LUA scripting language is incorporated in simion 8.1, which means that new syntax elements need to be added to original lua syntax file. With Ultraedit and uestutio this can be done rather easily."

    Best text editor. Period.

    02/11/2019
    "UltraEdit has everything it needs; what stands out to me is its ability to open huge files (~2GB) within seconds (as a hex editor) - this is a use case where all other progrtams I tried failed."

    Best all around text editor I've seen

    04/18/2017
    "UltraEdit has been my go-to editor for over a decade. I can use it with any programming language, and with its built in integrations with FTP and SSH I can use my desktop as a base for developing account across environments. With UltraCompare it's essential for my change management activities. My favorite feature: column editing."

    Solid text editor

    04/18/2017
    "I love column mode. I also like hex mode. Overall this is a fantastic editor... the fact that I can use the same editor on any operating system is amazing. I have, multiple times, over the years contacted IDM about issues with UltraEdit. They have always been extremely responsive and work to resolve my issues. The two features I use most are hex mode and column mode. These alone make it..."

    Great, versatile text editor

    02/18/2019
    "UltraEdit has something for everyone. I use it for collecting research (my own notes and content from other sources) and writing. The tabbed interface makes it a great tool for working with multiple documents at the same time. The ability to split the screen, along with the Document Map feature make it a great tool for working with longer documents. "

You generally won't wait for days. The helpful response is coming. As fart as the editor goes, writing macros is SO easy. Replacements, formatting, changing code, looking for something,..."

I also send a lot of email auto-responses and UltraEdit allows me to control every aspect of the text. In addition, I like the help files; very thorough. Finally, the support team is spot on!

    "I really like the search features of Ultra Edit and the ease with which files can be edited and saved. I also think it's worth mentioning that the staff support is really excellent. Anytime I encounter an issue, the staff is really quick to address my primary concern and help me meet my needs rather than consistently attempting to up sale me an item. Along those lines, I feel like the..."
