World Pad is a software utility which was built in order to help people create, edit and print simple text documents, with support for a TXT format at output.
The conveniences of a portable app
The installation process can be skipped, as this product is portable. Consequently, no new entries are going to be added to the Windows registry and hard drive without your permission, and no leftovers remain on the disk after you delete it.
In addition to that, you should know that by placing the program files to a removable storage device (e.g. pen drive), you make it possible to take World Pad anywhere with you and run it on any computer you come in contact with.
The interface you are met with encompasses a design which can only be described as plain and simple, seeing that it only comprises a menu bar and a pane in which to write the text. Although no Help contents are supported, it becomes quite clear that all types of users can find their way around it, including those with little or no previous experience with the IT world.
Supported extensions and available tweaks
This application enables you to upload items with the help of a file browser, and supports at import formats such as HTML, CSS, XML and TXT, while export is only possible using the TXT extension. In addition to that, you can send documents to the printer with just a click of the button, cut, copy and paste elements, as well as undo and redo actions.
The font type, style and size can be changed, while you can choose another type of script, apply effects such as strikeout and underline, and use a word wrap feature.
To conclude, World Pad is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to writing text documents. The interface is suitable to all user categories, the response time is good and the amount of resources required is insignificant. Our tests did not reveal any errors, crashes or freezes, yet its limited options might ward off power users.
