I know there are a lot of free text editors out there but I am looking for one that can Search and Replace and also Sort by paragraph. I haven't found one that contains both! Any links please?

Hi johnni,

I know a good one but it's not free (35$ for the standard version) : UltraEdit.
You have many features : hex editor, syntax coloration for 8 or 9 different programing languages, can handle very large files.
I have one installed on my office computer for many years, it works fine.

Thanks Chicon, but for only occasional use I wanted a free one, and I think I have now found what I want (there may be others, too); it's called TED Notepad, free from http://jsimlo.sk/notepad/

There are certainly a lot of them. Look for Notepad2. It has quite a few more features than Notepad.

This one is very nice and feature-packed:

http://www.docpad.com/

Then, there's Edxor, MDI Notepad, Metapad (which many people like), NotepadXP (too many features, really), and many more. Easy to find in search engines.

The open source Scintilla Text Editor is popular, too.

Thanks Elvandil. I followed up some of your recommendations and was quite struck by Edxor (apart from its unpronounceable name!). Some of the ones I tried, including TED, have a size limit which can be overcome by downloading an alternative (possibly slower) version. The problem is reported to be due to Windows and thus also affects Win Notepad. However Edxor seems able to open my largest txt file without a problem so I have retained it.
Thanks again!

I liked that one, too, and used it for quite a while.

You're welcome and thanks for the response.
