UltraEdit vs. UEStudio

UltraEdit and UEStudio both include powerful features such as syntax highlighting, code folding, integrated scripting and macro support, and more. However, there are some key differences between UltraEdit and UEStudio such as version control, language intelligence, and integrated development tools. The chart below outlines these and other differences.

"I'm very excited about what you've done here (UEStudio) - my (SQL) development cycle has been cut in half." David G.

Note: This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of the differences between UltraEdit and UEStudio.

UEStudio, all the features of UltraEdit plus the power of an IDE.

UEStudio file handling tools

Feature UE UES Benefit
Project Manager View project list, set backup, specify project locations, create batch builder list, track time spent on projects
Solutions Menu Manage the way sets of related projects are configured, built, and deployed
Git integration Easily see branch info, file statuses, issue arbitrary Git commands, etc.

CVS integration Checkout CVS modules, commit, diff, etc. Any items added to your project under CVS control are automatically detected

UEStudio file editing tools

Feature UE UES Benefit
Tabbed Output Window Execute multiple functions and store the dynamically generated output of these functions separately for future reference (during the active editing session)
Intellitips The power of language intelligence integrated with an intelligent auto complete tooltip for code elements of the current file. IntelliTips also provides a dialog-based popup that displays class/struct data members and functions. Some of this functionality is automatically triggered during the coding process while other items may be invoked from the IntelliTips toolbar

I downloaded and installed the new UEStudio less than an hour ago, and the new features are already greatly appreciated. The two most welcome new features are the as-you-type spell checker and the browser preview. These two alone will save me countless hours in the long run. UEStudio just keeps getting better and better. I find I am using my other development tools less and less, while UEStudio gains more and more of my productivity time. Registering was absolutely one of the wisest software investments I have made. Considering the price, I think it's an absolute bargain. Matt M.

No matter your text editing needs, UEStudio's stunning array of innovative features offer the functionality of a bonafide IDE and will transform the way you work.

We are always better together
