Preamble
EmEditor has been mentioned and discussed in the forum but it seems that there are users who do not know that EmEditor has a free version - EmEditor Free, which is very limited.

Synopsis
Quote:
If you need a best free text editor, EmEditor Free might be right for you. While not at the same level of EmEditor Professional, EmEditor Free allows you to do most of text editing tasks without purchasing the product. You can use it as Notepad-replacement with enhanced features like syntax-colored highlighting, find and replace function, Unicode support, and printing capabilities. However, this free version does not include many features that EmEditor Professional offers, such as very large file support, plug-ins, macros, etc.

Starting with v13, EmEditor Free and EmEditor Professional use the same binary program. Running a single command switches Professional to Free, and vice versa. However, the Free version is available only for personal use.

Once you downgrade the product to EmEditor Free, you will never be asked to upgrade or get any marketing messages, so please go ahead and keep it as the free version as long as you would like!

Features
  • Unicode support;
  • Tabbed interface;
  • URL detection;
  • Different wrap types;
  • Split window;
  • Always on top;
  • Find/Replace, Find in files/Replace in files;
  • Line numbers;
  • Ruler;
  • Backup;
  • Colour themes;
  • Support for many programming languages

Download the normal EmEditor Professional/Free installer, install, and select All Commands on the Tools menu, select Help, and select Downgrade. (Alternatively, select Quick Launch (CTRL+Q) on the Tools menu, type “downgrade”, and press Enter twice.)

Downgrade Instructions (how to downgrade EmEditor Professional to EmEditor Free)
  • Download the archive.
  • Extract the archive to a folder of your choice.
  • Run EmEditor.exe.
  • Go to Tools and choose All Commands.

Portability
EmEditor has both x32 and x64 portable versions. EmEditor seems to be stealth.

Instructions
  • Download either x32 or x64 archive.
  • Extract the archive to a folder of your choice.
  • Run EmEditor.exe.
  • Settings are saved inside program folder.

Image

Requirements
EmEditor supports all Windows versions from Vista to 10.

License
EmEditor Free is available for personal use only.

Note
For me EmEditor Free is very limited, even full screen is not available in the free version.
I have read that EmEditor Free is very good at editing very large files but I don't have such files, I have not tested it with huge files and therefore I cannot confirm.
I suppose that TP109 might be interested to test EmEditor Free and include it in his Text Editor Performance Tests.

I'm a little bummed it won't do something as basic as a Find-Replace, but I can see some of it's other features making it worth the effort. Thanks for the downgrade instructions.

The program was discussed at some length in this speed test thread:

In fact EmEditor Free has Find/Replace- see screen-shot "EmEditor - search", it is mentioned in the Features section as well.

Oh Find and replace in files is paid version only. Missed that.
