When you need to start writing your newest article or getting hands-on with that critical development project that has a fast approaching deadline, you need the best text editing tool possible at your arm's length.
In most cases, the default text editor on your Mac will get the job done, but when the project demands more advanced tools, there's only one solution, to start using a text editing utility with a lot more features than the barebones TextEdit application available in macOS.
Highly customizable text editing tool with a features set designed to fit multiple usage scenarios
One such app is IDM Computer Solutions' UltraEdit, which, like its name suggests, comes with a huge list of extra features and capabilities designed to make your writing or development tasks a lot easier.
First of all, UltraEdit has been developed from the ground up as the tool of choice for a wide assortment of user types, from programmers and developers to database managers, researchers, and editors. This is possible because the large feature list it comes with can easily mold around each user's needs.
Moreover, the UltraEdit editor is highly customizable given its custom theme support, a trait that makes it possible for you to give it the perfect look for the task at hand.
Also, when you need to work for extensive periods of time during the night, you can give UltraEdit a darker look so that your eyes won't suffer after being exposed to the high intensity light source that a Mac's display is during late night work shifts.
Comprehensive text editor for both writers and programmers
UltraEdit also comes with inbuilt support for Apple's Retina displays for that extra zest required to make your code or text blocks easier to read and the app's interface to look better up close.
For seasoned writers, UltraEdit comes with support for editing large files of 4 GB and more, as well as a robust and fast spell checking engine, automated paragraph formatting and alignment, column or block mode editing, extended undo and redo, as well as a powerful multi-line search and replace feature.
Developers and programmers also have a lot to gain from using UltraEdit while working on their projects due to its built-in FTP client designed to help them work on as many files as needed directly on their FTP server of choice.
Furthermore, UltraEdit provides programmers with a Ctags support, code auto-completion and a very easily customizable syntax highlighting engine created to help them get a quicker grasp of what's happening in the currently open project file.
Text editor built to perfectly fit multiple types of users and editing styles
Additionally, while editing using UltraEdit, you can also work on files containing multiple languages while still being able to benefit from syntax highlighting for each and every line in the file.
As an extra bonus, UltraEdit also features support for recording and editing your custom macros for automating various tasks, as well as an integrated scripting language designed for the same purpose but for cases when the task you need to perform automatically cannot be executed using UI-based commands.
On the whole, UltraEdit is a must-have tool for advanced users that need a text editor more powerful and a lot more comprehensive than Apple's TextEdit.
Also, the UltraEdit app is designed to provide the extra features required by power users such as programmers and developers, and even editors and publishers that have to work on multiple documents at once.
