PolyEdit Lite 18.104.22.168
After going through a seamless and uneventful installation process, you are greeted by a simple and vaguely familiar interface, as it encloses menu bar, multiple buttons and a pane in which to display your ongoing project. Moreover, comprehensive Help contents are supported, thus ensuring that both power and novice users can learn how to handle it, without facing difficulties.
Supported file types and bringing up properties
This application enables you to import text documents in formats such as RTF, TXT, ETF, DOC, DOT and DOCX, while export is available using file extensions such as RTF, TXT, ETF, DOC, HTML and PDF. Aside from that, you should know you can open multiple tabs in the same time and bring up properties regarding each item, with information such as path, name, type, object, size, modified date and total number of lines, words, characteristics and pages.
Some of the options you can tweak
It is possible to define the font type, style, size and color according to your preferences and insert page borders, bullet points, symbols, pictures (e.g. JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, ICO etc.), objects from any kind of file type, equations, tables, hyperlinks, headers, footers and page brakes. You can also save body texts as templates, so that you can use them at a later date, and take advantage of a spellchecker and a Clipboard manager to view last copied item and save it to the HDD.
To wrap it up, PolyEdit Lite is a useful piece of software and a pretty decent alternative to Microsoft’s Word. It does not put a strain on your system’s performance, the response time is good, the interface is user-friendly and there are enough options to help you create professional documents. You should know that you can download its full-featured counterpart, PolyEdit.
