What do you like best?

It supports a lot of languages and the loading speed is decent even on large projects. I like the group support in the GUI to make manage project much easier. It supports over 90 different languages and over 9 platforms. Start up time is decent as well so we don't have to waste time waiting for the edit to fully loaded. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has a lot of features but the it requires some learning curve before a new user can start to use it. Sometimes when a new language is supported, it might be buggy and it takes a while to figure out the problem and contact SlickEdit to fix it because of the complexity. Setting up different version control tools to work with SlickEdit might be a little difficult depending on how the two tools working together. GUI might look a bit different when there is a major version update and it requires user to re-learn the GUI, which might be time consuming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

SlickEdit is best suit for projects across multiple sites using different programming languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This text editor has excellent script functions. Another positive feature of SlickEdit is that it can be configured to integrate with MySQL. Also very important are customization options, which allow you to change from the theme of the interface to the colors that will be highlighted in the code syntax. In addition, the application is updated frequently, so you will always be at the forefront of the world of programming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't find negatives about SlickEdit. In my opinion, after each update the software surprises with increasingly powerful and easy-to-use features. This tool can be used for years without problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try and buy this text editor, to greatly improve your way of programming. SlickEdit is powerful and has two different versions, capable of satisfying your needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

In the organization where I work I am responsible for designing and developing applications or web pages following the business processes that they are established through each client, so to maintain quality standards and quickly write lines of code I use SlickEdit, which has tools for highlighting syntax, integrations with databases, as well as connecting it directly to Git to load projects.

What do you like best?

As duas coisas que eu mais gosto sobre edição de código é a capacidade de configurar um projeto inteiro e como é fácil pesquisar código e navegar para áreas de interesse - para poder selecionar registros com precisão Facilidade de uso O tempo de inicialização também é decente por isso, não precisamos perder tempo esperando a edição ser totalmente carregada. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A conclusão automática pode ser melhorada, mas está tudo bem - às vezes, mas é raro, fecha abruptamente, mas acontece quando eu abro um novo arquivo. Uma coisa de que não gosto muito é quando coloco a minha máquina no modo sleep e volto a funcionar, o Slickedit vai pedir a licença e se algum arquivo estiver aberto através de compartilhamento de rede e a localização da rede estiver inacessível, isso me faria feche-os ou mantenha-os abertos, mas mostre-os como não-salvos. Ele não se ajustou ao meu uso, mas pode funcionar muito bem para os outros. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Se acostumar com a visão do projeto o mais rápido possível Nenhum Eu diria apenas experimentá-lo e ver como é útil É um ótimo editor de texto levar o seu tempo para aprendê-lo e você será muito recompensado. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Para mim, o Slickedit é o editor preferido para criar scripts e programar arquivos com tamanho de largura diferente e muito tipo de registro diferente. Há várias ocasiões em que tenho sido capaz de pesquisar com eficiência e encontrar problemas muito mais rapidamente do que seria possível. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

That it has brief emulation. Though it is not perfect, it can be programmed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit of a pain to work with other tools to share the project/build management when you go between debugging and programming/editing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get the trial and try it. It is always a pain to set up all the build/project at first, but that is try with most IDEs and editors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Slickedit is lightweight and loads in a hurry. I like the ease of customization and how I can integrate it with other applications (version control). Another plus is the compare tool which can compare whole folders as well as individual files. I like the small memory footprint and that it does not slow down my laptop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One thing I don't like so much is when I put my machine on sleep and come back up, Slickedit will ask for the license and if any files were open through network share, and the network location was inaccessible, it would either make me close them or keep them open but show them as unsaved. I understand the reason but I wish there was a better solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get used to the project view as soon as possible. There might be a small learning curve there but it saves so much time later. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

For me, Slickedit is the editor of choice for scripting and programming. It is able to automate a lot of indentation and helps with getting a project view where searching references and definitions is a cinch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use. As soon as I installed slickedit, it was intuitive to use after I went through the wizard/getting started at the beginning. additionally I found the menus very well laid out. The macros function allows you to automate repetitive processes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

crashes. When I have too many files open it tends to get slow and crash. having to configure the app for each user can be very tedious. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There isn't a whole lot to say about disliking SlickEdit. One feature I haven't explored too greatly is the source control integration. It hasn't fit my use, but it may work great for others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the time to customize your setup. Don't forget to make a workspace and a project - it will make life much easier. I have had colleagues who search in all files rather than finding references/definitions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

First of all let me state, I'm just a novice programmer and work on a very part-time basis on some programming projects. With that said, I was able to try out the slickedit software a few months ago and very much pleased by it. Getting it installed and getting started overall was fairly straightforward. Tutorials for use were well explained and editing features very useful. Customizing the appearance of your programation code was a great tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Abundance of features may feel a little overwhelming at first. Configuration to each specific user is time-consuming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good tool to help programming, review and edit codes in many different languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

What do you like best?

Its fast. I mean fast.

Opens in less than 3 seconds.

Finding methods, functions, class, variables is instantaneous.

It opens any type of file without the need to click the mouse 5 times.

Easy to learn the basics. You can set the shortcuts mappings to any of the major existing IDEs which will boost up your productivity in the beginning.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Step learning curve for the more advanced features (macros).

Auto complete could be improved but it is OK as is.

Configuring the project to compile, debug etc. is complicated; although very powerful, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I was working in mainly in C at the time.

I have used Slick Edit for java as well.

The greater benefit is speed, and if you have the patience to configure the macros, it can really be a pleasure to make some repetitive tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
