The objective of developing IntelliPad was driven by the need to serve multi-purpose text processing tasks and to be the basic instrument to be used by a typical software developer. Convenient location of panels, menu, and vast tools for working with text, as well as the possibilities of flexible scripting to automate tasks — everything is of great importance.


After years searching for a suitable text editor, I didn't find any of them to satisfy my needs, so I wrote my own. Many available text editors mainly focus on configurability of the editor as in customizable syntax highlighting and coloring, gui configuration, custom plugins etc., rather then ad-hoc extensibility of the editor based on functionality. Thus eventually it prompted me to envision on IntelliPad.

Use scripts to automate tedious and repetitive typing, saving you time and effort. By letting the computer do the manual work, you get the freedom to concentrate on your writing. The capabilities of this tool is quite enormous and it really depends on how you want it to serve your needs.

This version is the first release on the web. There may be still some bugs and missing features that are being worked on. If you have any questions or suggestions about this initiative, please post them in the forums. Also, if you wish to make a feature request, you can post it there as well. But there's no guarantee that I'll implement your request.

Your feedback will be definitely be helpful to make IntelliPad better and stable.

Above all, IntelliPad is free to use and there is no charges.
