What do you like best?

Basically I like UltraEdit as it has fascinating features installed, it's an outstanding text editor, it can be personalised and it can handle extensive files easily, without any problems. This is compatible with various operating systems, including any sort of file, making it a brilliant app for any job, in order to support those people who want it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of solutions for the application, some of them are honestly not so used. In order to function better, you can add more that is a new solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

First, you have to review an application for good use and good advantages, but you need to notice that the software has better choices with the full version, since the application is paid, only a trial period of 30 days is available. UltraEdit is your method if you want an application to edit some kind of text and file sizes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The application's features are fine, and you can do jobs with this tool. It is extremely beneficial for the various existing files and for all sizes, and has enough features to function well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Overall, a well-built and organised, lightweight app with numerous features that make all its users experience it more quickly and seamlessly. They have features that can connect syntax feedback, automatic characterisation in the language in which you function. It provides modular design, extensive customization functions as regards layouts, topics and code for greater convenience and comprehension. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Compared to other similar apps, it may seem a bit obsolete, but still users experience this matured style of a righteous editing software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

UltraEdit remains a cross-platform, multifunctional, fully stable and powerful code editor. This explains exactly what this programme may do, so I inspire all those users looking for the code editor program to test this and confirm it for themselves, as I know that you would not regret it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

For a community of company app developers that I work for, I am a developer manager. Thanks to that tool, I have saved interminable days of code-review for all the projects, which we have been working concurrently to allow us to prioritise other tasks to be tackled by getting the ease of the same programme to fix syntax errors.

What do you like best?

I've been making use of this product on integrated cross-system platforms for more than 12 years. Largely from Windows to Linux. The publisher has grown a great deal from its previous edition to allow anything within it being customised. It is not difficult to transport between systems without investing your time re configuring things by saving the changes of yours. The business has an excellent historical past of creating relatively secure updates. If anything with unforeseen deficiencies is introduced, it could be immediately updated as well as removed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Several areas which could improve more or less support the reading of doxygen style comments as well as provide the designer with the conclusion of the word. UE Studio may also use TCP or perhaps serial built in GDB support. Port to Linux as well as Mac UE Studio code. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

UltraEdit is simple to use, simple to adapt and economical. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I operate in a multi platform setting that adjusts Linux kernels to embedded methods and also writes Linux drivers. It's really convenient to have the ability to make use of UES on many systems. Moreover, it's really helpful to customise the application to keep me effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Our experience with this platform has been good, although it is a bit slow to load and its tools and functions could be a little easier to handle, this does not mean that it is difficult or has a very large learning curve, quite the opposite. it is so detailed that it would be better to simplify some things in the toolbar.

What do you like best?

The reasons why I like UltraEdit are:

1. It is possible to run UltraEdit in a Linux environment, as well as in Windows or macOS, it even has a portable version for mobile applications.

2. Its functionalities can be extended through a very simple and easy to use plugin manager.

3. It has a built-in terminal to execute different sets of commands.

4. It has Git integration to be able to load and version the projects they develop.

5. It is possible to buy an annual subscription. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think there are some things that should be improved in UltraEdit such as:

1. The file explorer should be simpler.

2. They have some themes on their official page that are not installed with the software, and I think that they should already be integrated in UltraEdit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We started using UltraEdit because it is cross-platform software and is affordable compared to other IDEs. We got used to its customization options and because it's a really light. We are satisfied and recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It is a great advantage to use UltraEdit over other options because it is an IDE and not a simple editor, which means that it has all the functions and extensions necessary to develop software, it even has a portable version for mobile applications. I use this software for debugging purposes. Also, it has built-in Git integration, so I can upload projects to company repositories easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have been using UltraEdit almost since it was first released in the mid 1990's, and probably will keep using it as long as I am around. It is intuitive to use, and provides tools to address any text manipulation that I have ever needed. On those rare occasions where I needed help that was outside the excellent documentation, I was able to contact a real human being who was very helpful.

When I am at a DOS prompt several levels deep in the directory structure and want to open a file, I just type uedit64 and UltraEdit opens the file. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is a little difficult to figure out how to add plugins like JS Lint, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take advantage of the 30 day free trial, see for yourself how good it is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Part of my job is to extract insurance rates from PDFs, paste into a spreadsheet to manipulate the data then upload into a database. I highlight the PDF to copy, the use UltraEdit to manipulate the data so that I can paste into a spreadsheet or just directly into a file that cant be read from a PHP program. UltraEdit provides the tools to make this job easy. I have tried to do same using several other text editors, but nothing works nearly as good as UltraEdit.

I use flat files in a lot of my PHP projects, every one of them was created with UltraEdit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I think that what UltraEdit does best is to be so versatile and comfortable to work since this allows us to modify the texts and like no other text editor does, this adding that you have options to identify the types of languages and script makes it much more useful that other options such as Notepad++ that can crash and crash very often make ultra edit a pretty solid platform Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The software in general lines is excellent, I can't complain about anything bad. The only thing that the common user who only wants to edit as a hobby or is learning about programming and software development can complain is the fact of having to spend on a subscription because it gives you little free trial time when there are many free text editors that are comparable to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To users looking for software to help them manage texts, I recommend trying UltraEdit, as they will find there a very powerful tool for all kinds of jobs and programming languages, it is compatible like no other program with different devices and is quite complete without doubt one of the best options and a program that should not be missing in any of our devices Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The problem it solves and the main reason why I use UtraEdit is that it has many features that make it an intuitive and fast text editor to program and write lines of code. Its syntax system, its autocomplete functions and error detection are some of the best that similar software can have, and in addition to this I can also say that the plugins that can be integrated with it help a lot with implementation of projects.

UltraEdit is a good choice for any developer. I like it because it supports a wide variety of programming languages. It has nice features like customizable keyboard shortcuts, find and replace tools. Also, it has the best navigation directory that I have used in any IDE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about UltraEdit is that it doesn't allow you to use the software when the license is expired. I believe that at least an extension period should be provided before canceling the use of the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I recommend this software because it will allow you to develop the code of your apps in a comfortable way, I consider it a very complete IDE and with support for wide programming languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The language in the program is frequently PHP and UltraEdit covers the features of this very well. It helps me to find errors in the code and also to predict some functions. It also has an excellent tool for ordering code and keeping a clean outline. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Currently utraedit is a little known, or little used, code editor, but it has one of the best design interfaces I have ever seen, it has complete tools and incredible renderers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it is a bit limited compared to other systems, example compared to sublimetext, it lacks many tools for apis and app development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend as a beginner, since there is not much more to learn from this tool, since it would be easier to handle much more economical and feasible work tools, but this is excellent to start in the world of web development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I built a clean api, with a lot of work, but it helped me develop it in a clean language, without so many development tools, on the one hand it helped me optimize my own code, on the other hand it gave me a little extra work, but it was well worth it in the end.

Gosto do UltraEdit, porque é um software com o qual tenho compartilhado muito tempo, graças às suas características que permitem modificar todos os tipos de textos, tornou-se um dos programas que sempre acompanha o meu trabalho como programador, pois possui grande compatibilidade com todos os tipos de textos e idiomas e, ao analisar documentos que meus clientes me enviam, sei que não haverá problemas ao abri-los com UltraEdit Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Pessoalmente, considero que o UltraEdit não possui pontos negativos, mas, se sou um pouco mais detalhado, posso dizer que um dos problemas que ele pode apresentar para novos usuários é a complexidade do software, com tantas opções e ferramentas que nos fazem precisa de um certo nível de preparação e prática antes de entendê-lo e usá-lo de uma maneira adequada para tirar o máximo proveito dele. Um ponto fraco em comparação com a concorrência é que ela não possui uma versão gratuita, é necessário pagar com uma assinatura anual para mantê-la ao longo do tempo e, de fato, é um pouco caro. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Minha única recomendação para os usuários é que eles demorem um tempo para conhecer a plataforma e praticar com ela, dessa forma eles poderão tirar o máximo proveito dela e conhecer a ótima ferramenta que realmente é trabalhar no gerenciamento de um ampla variedade de idiomas e scripts, para acelerar o processo pode ser suportado pelo excelente serviço de suporte e atendimento ao cliente que o ajudarão a tornar esse processo muito mais rápido Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

O problema que resolvo com o ultraedit é que sempre posso usá-lo rapidamente como um programa rápido. Existem muitas funções e atalhos para brincar com seus dados.

I've tried a lot of different editors, and UltraEdit automatically highlights and even completes some things (quotes, for example), depending on the type of file you're working with. Different types of files have different highlighting and formatting, but they are all easy to read and work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there really is no downside that I've found in UltraEdit. There are links to other IDM products, but that's pretty common for companies in their menus, but from the supported files to the speed to the recovery of unsaved files, I rely on UltraEdit daily and haven't found any downside to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look around, find out what you need. UltraEdit is not free, so make sure it fits your needs. Run the trial and make sure, compare it to other editors, and make sure it's what you're looking for. It was a perfect fit for me, and I highly recommend it, but it's like a glove. Pick the program that fits the person and needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I've had issues in the past working with large text files and trying to read some configuration files. Today I needed to open a 340MB .reg file to search for a value. It took about 5 seconds to open the file, while other editors struggled for 10+ minutes just opening it. It allows me to work efficiently and get things done that I would otherwise struggle to complete. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
