An application that is frequently used and installed in every computer system is a notepad which is used for writing and editing text and being a simple alternative to Microsoft Word. Though it comes with the usual save, edit, undo, replace and font options, it doesn’t do much for further enhancement. Now if you are looking for notepad like resource friendly application then you need to checkout the remarkable DocPad 7.0 which works as a superlative substitute to Microsoft notepad having a vast array of improvised features for texting besides having more options for user comfort.

The look of the software can be changed as per user discretion as it contains a library of different skins with diverse textures and colors. The editing option has huge list of options for undoing up to ten times, case conversion and changing text placement, and spell check too. Furthermore, the paragraphs written can be arranged alphabetically with the option of enabling or disabling block indention.
