AkelPad is a compact and open-source word processing tool oriented towards users who prefer a straightforward application.

The interface of the program is minimalistic and familiar, so you shouldn't have any navigation problems if you are accustomed tp similar tools, such as Windows' Notepad.

So, you can use some standard functions, such as undo, redo, cut, copy, paste, select all, search and replace. But you can also insert special characters and the current date, as well as make modifications to the current selected text, such as converting characters to uppercase or lowercase, or trimming the trailing whitespace.

On top of that, you can customize the font and colors, switch to read-only mode, wrap words, split the window, disable the status (it shows the current column and line), make the frame stay on top of other windows, as well as switch to a different language for the interface. Settings can be saved to either the Windows Registry or an initialization file (INI).

AkelPad requires a very small amount of CPU and system memory, is pretty responsive to keyboard and mouse commands, has a good response time, and includes user documentation. We have not encountered any issues throughout our evaluation, since AkelPad did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.

All in all, AkelPad packs some extra features, compared to Notepad, while preserving the simplicity of a task. Thanks to its intuitive layout and configuration options, AkelPad is addressed to users of any experience level.
