UltraEdit: The world's best text editor
Our 4+ million power users all agree – UltraEdit is the most flexible, powerful, and secure text editor out there. Download a free, full-feature trial to see why. Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
The environment you work in is a personal thing. And with UltraEdit's deeply customizeable new menuing system, your perfect in-app menu awaits. Our brand new menu allows you to switch between a full ribbon, compact ribbon and menu/toolbar system, all with only the buttons you'd like.
UltraEdit's text editing features make editing lists and columns an intuitive experience, not the exercise in tedium it used to be. With features like multi-caret editing, column/block editing and multi-select, it's a simple text editor when you want it to be, and a multi-cursor power editor when you need it to be.
From quick inline finds to massive replaces across your entire project, no one does search like UltraEdit. Find / replace across files, Perl regular expressions, column-based search, line filters, and more...when it comes to search, there's almost nothing UltraEdit can't do!
UltraEdit features an integrated FTP browser and supports syntax highlighting for hundreds of languages, with more always in the works. And with an integrated SSH/telnet client, scripting, custom tools, macros and Smart Templates, UltraEdit's ready for any coding session.

Here are just a few things users LOVE about UltraEdit...
Dynamic code auto-completion with IntelliTips
UltraEdit provides code-aware and context-aware auto-complete suggestions. See class members, function tips, and more for most modern porgramming languages...and configure as much or as little to suit your needs.
Best of all – it just works, out of the box. No risky third party plugins or esoteric config editing required.
UltraEdit features the most powerful and intuitive multi-caret editing and multi-selection capabilites in the business. Once your cursors or selections are where you want them to be, you can copy, cut, paste, select and delete just the same as you normally would.
HTML / Markdown live preview
Want to see your rendered HTML or Markdown changes on the fly, as you edit them? UltraEdit's live preview makes this possible. Double-click an element in the preview to jump to its definition in source. And with Github Flavored Markdown (GFM) code highlighting and compatibility, UltraEdit is the only editor you'll need for your repos.
If it can be searched for, UltraEdit will find it. But search is almost the wrong word. With the power to search with regular expressions, search across files, find a needle in a 4GB haystack, or just quickly find a word you're looking for, this isn't search. This is omniscience.
When editing horizontally just isn't quite good enough, Column Mode is there for you. Use Column Mode to intuitively edit along the Y axis anywhere in your document. It's just one of the many powerful ways UltraEdit helps you edit tabular data or code files.
Integrated FTP, SSH & Telnet
Whether you need to make quick edits to a file on a server or upload a massive codebase, UltraEdit's integrated FTP capabilities and SSH/Telnet make it easy to work with remote files and interact with servers from a single, powerful application.
Our menu system has been rebuilt from the ground up to make it even more customizable than ever. Our deeply customizable new menu can be laid out however you'd like. Set yourself up with Ribbon mode for a familiar look and feel. Or maybe you prefer the simple toolbar with only your most commonly needed features. The possibilities are endless.
Choose one of our core themes or try our beautiful user-contributed themes to get UltraEdit looking exactly how you'd like it to. Take it a step further by modifying your theme or creating a new one from scratch, then contribute it back for the rest of our users to enjoy.

4k UHD support

UltraEdit is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Even if you've got one of those distros nobody's heard of, there's a good chance we may be able to help you.
3 for 1 licenses

I am always amazed at the power and flexibility of UE. It's clear that the product is built for professionals working on complex and often esoteric projects. I'm glad you guys are there, not only as the creators of an indispensable tool, but to also support users, like me, who sometimes need a little help with its powerful and flexible nature. When I find myself on a computer without UltraEdit, it feels like I've lost a hand…
