editor's review




Utube Pad is a text editor whose feature set is not limited to document writing and formatting. It is specifically designed to help users write texts and descriptions for video tutorials, providing built-in screen capturing capabilities.

A forthright text editor with common editing options

The application comes with all the basic features of a simple text editor, allowing text typing, fast color changing, font formatting and enabling you to cut, copy and paste text pieces. Thus, it can be used as an alternative to Notepad, although its purpose is rather different.

Utube Pad features word wrapping and automatic URL detections, which is particularly useful in tutorials. Its straightforward, fully customizable interface and accessible options in the menus make it very easy to work with. Unfortunately, the only supported format is RTF.

Build texts for tutorials and take screen snapshots

The additional functions that Utube Pad brings make it suitable for tutorial creation. To begin with, it integrates a set of predefined texts and expressions that are usually used in tutorials, so as to save you the time needed to manually type in the same text over and over again.

Thanks to the integrated screenshot tool, you can easily capture the screen, save the snapshot or preview it right next to the text you are typing. One minor glitch prevents the automatic adjustment of the text layout, so that you might end up having the image overlaying the text.

A text editor dedicated to tutorial creation

Utube Pad shows promise, but it still needs improvements to make it more appealing to users. The predefined texts are really helpful for creating 'how to' instructions. Enhancing the screen capturing tool with area capturing and adding it extra compatible file formats are just some suggestions to add to its value.
