What are Environments?
An environment allows you to toggle between editor layouts so as to allow you the ability to switch menus, toolbars, dockable windows, customized templates, and more based on your tasks/needs. Environments provide a way for you to customize the editor exactly as you'd like, and then save and switch to it at the click of a button. Visit our environments power tip to learn more.
Open an Environment in a new instance
Should you wish to maintain your current environment while switching over to a new one in a new instance of the application, you can easily do so by CTRL + clicking on the environment you'd like to switch to!
UltraEdit's Notepad Replacement environment provides a basic interface and toolset for ease of use without sacrificing any of its highly-acclaimed power, flexibility or speed. Below are just some of the features included with this environment; for a more exhaustive look at the featureset of UltraEdit, take the UltraEdit tour.
Dockable file tabs
Easily select, sort and close files by clicking/double-clicking on the associated file tabs. Many users open multiple files at once and group them together as projects so they all open together. The Open File Tabs make it easier to navigate between open files. Note that you can have not only multiple files open at the same time but also multiple formats such as .js, java, .cpp, .cgi, .c, .pl, .html, .txt and others.
Syntax highlighting allows you to visually sort your code by highlighting related parts of the source code as different colors. For instance, if you're editing HTML files, you may want all <h> (heading) tags to highlight a certain color, while your <meta> tags will highlight differently. This is all defined in the wordfile - a collection of language-specific keywords from where UltraEdit draws its syntax highlighting. UltraEdit includes syntax highlighting support for as many as 20 highlighting languages at once, but there are wordfiles for almost any coding language available for download from our site, which may be added to your main wordfile.txt. You can also build your own build your own wordfile for syntax highlighting.
Syntax highlighting also provides code folding, brace matching, autoindentation, autocorrection, and more.
Enhanced File Tree View
Enhanced file tree view with tabs for displaying files for the active Project, a listing of currently open files, or an Explorer-like view of available drives/directories, and access to your FTP/SFTP accounts in the tree view. Also includes filters and a "Lists" tab for maintaining favorite file groups.
UltraEdit's status bar holds a wealth of information for you. Included on the status bar are the cursor's line and column numer, file format information, syntax highlighting language information, the file's last modification date and time, file size, current selected clipboard information, and more.
Powerful Find and Replace
UltraEdit is famous for its powerful find/find and replace dialogs. With v14, we introduced multi-line find and replace dialogs, which allows you to easily search for (and replace) multiple lines of text with the click of a button.
You'll also be able to easily access recently-used search phrases as well as search favorites via our search and replace history and favorites buttons on the dialog. The dialogs also include Advanced options for advanced search operations such as regular expressions, columnar search, and the ability to output a list of lines containing your search string.
With UltraEdit's powerful find and replace engine, you can search through a single open file, all open files, or any directory on your system. Easily accessed with CTRL + F for Find, or CTRL + R for replace, you'll quickly find that our powerful search engine is a tool you simply can't do without.
