Fantastic Editor, Fantastic Customer Service and FANTASTIC PEOPLE!
"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 -..."
"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)."
"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."
"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."
"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..."
"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. "
An extremely powerful, customizable code/text editor
"* Text editing is extremely strong and make it really easy to do powerful things efficiently. My favorites just in that area are:
* Column editing
* Multi-caret selection
* Quick to record and playback keystroke macros (which you can save)
* Code templates
* Split screen
* Search and replace using regular expressions makes searching a breeze
* Keys can be mapped to..."
"Easy to guess short cuts, user friendly menus, good explorer menu, can reopen all the files that were last open. Extremely good in finding and replacing strings, very simple and versatile, User interface,
"Ability to record multiple macros to make converting text from one format into another quick (SQL column names to C# datareader, list of SQL data from SSMS resultset into comma-seperated list for WHERE x IN y clause)."
"Although the editor is fantastic, the relationship with UltraEdit over the years is the best. They ALWAYS help you with whatever you need. Licensing problems, editor comments, OMG. And FAST. 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,..."
"Ultraedit is extremely versatile. It contains thoughtful, well-designed features and functionality that make editing tasks productive and intuitive. It is updated frequently; the developers of the product keep abreast of developments in the IT space and adapt the software as necessary. It is programmable via the use of scripts and macros to allow for customized editing. "
"The most important feature for me is *keeping code intact*. I do a lot of hand-coding and little things like empty spaces make a huge difference. 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! After a crash, I had to rebuild my computer and all I..."
"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..."

UltraEdit for multiple languages), as support for multiple types of markup, full tabulation and indentation."
