Gujarati Pad is a standard word processor that allows users to create text documents in the Gujarati language and the English one, while it also includes a few customization options.
Hassle-free installation and clean interface
The setup process does not last longer than a few seconds and does not present any third-party offers. The interface of the application looks and feels like the one of Microsoft Office 97, so improvements are clearly welcomed in the visual department. However, it is quite simple and intuitive, allowing all user categories to find their way around it with ease.
Options you can take advantage of
Keys are automatically assigned with Gujarati characters and, unfortunately you cannot change their layout.
It is possible to find and replace text, switch to the English language, and zoom in and out, with just a click of the button. It is possible to toggle between page view and continuous mode, as well as insert external files, page breaks, or objects and images as characters.
Furthermore, you can change font settings and customize the text style, alignment, color and background color, tabs and paragraph properties (e.g. line spacing, indents, distances). You can insert tables and attributes, while you should know that the saving and printing features are not supported in the unregistered edition.
A last assessment
Gujarati Pad barely uses CPU and RAM, so it does not affect system performance. It has a good response time and works well, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. However, Gujarati Pad has not been updated for a very long time, and the installer fails to register some DLLs on newer versions of Windows.
