What do you like best?

EmEditor is a light application and easy to install. It has a toolbar with excellent features in which you can highlight: macros to adjust XML and HTML, to filter to find access to suggestions and to search bar to find words quickly. It also has options to separate by commas or by tabulator. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The syntax highlighting is poor, which makes code recognition difficult, especially for beginners. Also sometimes it has update notifications that are intrusive and break my workflow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software is a great tool to run unit tests. It is a multipurpose tool for common text editor and also for programming. You can easily add plugins to customize your work environment and facilitate your tasks. I recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EmEditor allows me to modify XML and HTML files, since it supports different coding languages. This software has the function of autocorrection which saves me time, because otherwise I would have to review line by line of the code in which it is working. It also allows me to access the Windows command line to execute the functions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

EmEditor can be adapted for professional or personal projects. I like that it has a simple interface, compatible with a wide variety of files. Another feature that I like is that it is a lightweight program. I also like your autocomplete and replaced options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

EmEditor does not have an integrated browser function. Another aspect that I don't like is that it takes longer than expected to debug projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

EmEditor is an amazing software for web development or software development. It has options for beginners and can be greatly customized. I recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EmEditor allows me to encode professional or personal projects quickly, because it is a lightweight editor and I can open several files simultaneously, splitting it into different tabs.

What do you like best?

EmEditor provides a built-in debugger that allows you to run all APIs. This editor handles multiple languages and extensions to develop web projects. This software is capable of handling the most sought-after languages such as HTML, JSP, PHP and XML. It is a much lighter software than Sublime Text and has regular updates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have problems configuring JSON files, although I may not have the necessary experience. I also consider that it does not have enough available add-ons. Also, I would like to have support for React libraries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are in need of a compatible editor with several programming languages, use EmEditor. It is fast, reliable and powerful. I would recommend using it for simple applications, it has good syntax highlighting and autosuggestion functions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am currently developing an APIs in Java on an Azure server to connect to the company's mobile employee management application. EmEditor gives me benefits such as reducing debugging times and solving incompatibility problems that other publishers have, thanks to this editor supporting many languages.

What do you like best?

The means you can open any text file and specify your delimiters to be able to edit it. You can open enormous files and it will use your hard disk and not open it in RAM as alll text editors used to do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Can be complex to learn, often I have had to google how to do something simple like filter column or search - but I think it’s getting better Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is the best text editing software I have seen, and I have been in operations and development for many years. You will unlikely be disappointed with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speed to edit large text files to identify issues before being imported into databases which can take time. Fast investigations lead to minimised time for employees, saving likely hundreds of man hours for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

- fast processing time for large files. comparing to other software, EmEditor breezes through the files like they are nothing

- supports many charsets

- macros are powerful and easy to use

- able to parse delimiters

- powerful outlining

- very responsive and easy to use

- optimizes deletion with functions like 'removing the undo function for large datasets to cut down on processing time' Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- interface is not intuitive. finding things in the menu alone takes up most of my time

- documentation is not the best Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

EmEditor is a very powerful tool which allows you to handle files which are large. Compared to the other products which we have tried, this is by far the best software we have used. The other products just malfunctions and stop working once you load the files in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

my company constantly requires us to manage large amount of textfiles as well as files which are too large to be processed by normal notepad or even notepad++. it allows us to clean up our data for post-processing and cuts down much of our agony when the computer malfunctions when dealing with large files.

What do you like best?

Without a shadow of a doubt the best thing about EmEditor is its ability to open extremely large text files very quickly which most other editors i've tried struggle with or just simply can't do. There is also a completely free version that has a limited set of options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure i use it enough to warrant getting the paid version which seems quite pricey in its various price package guises. Could do with more formatting addins/options like Notepad++. The free version lacks nice column alignment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it in conjunction with Notepad++ (also free), between the two of them it should meet all your editor needs for creating, opening and viewing any type of text file Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest issue i had before discovering EmEditor was the ability to open very large text files and be able to search within them, Notepad++ just wasn't cutting it. EmEditor is superb for opening large files, it is definitely the best free text editor out there for that (I tried many) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
