Comments on: metapad turns ten http://liquidninja.com/metapad-turns-ten/ by Alexander Davidson Sat, 23 Feb 2013 01:25:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Richard Edwards http://liquidninja.com/metapad-turns-ten/comment-page-2/#comment-395 Fri, 04 Mar 2011 16:48:00 +0000 http://liquidninja.com/?p=38#comment-395 I love Metapad but for some reason it runs slowly if it has more couple of screens of text. The FAQ says RICHED20.DLL can cause Metapad to go slow and a solution is to use Metapad LE. However, both full Metapad and Metapad LE have the same problem.

http://liquidninja.com/metapad/faq.html#Q18

I tried changing RICHED20.DLL (which I put in the Metapad folder) for a different version but it doesn’t help. I have tried RICHED20.DLL versions 3,4,5 and 6. Can you help? I am running WinXP/SP3.

Search and replace all occurences of the word Metapad in the program with Petapad. Do it again but call it Vetapad. Now you have three editors, Metapad, Petapad and Vetapad which you can give different sizes, colors, fonts, positions and use for different purposes, because their settings will be stored in three different places in the registry. One can be used as your diary, one as a ToDo list and one as a general text editor, for example.

It fits perfectly as a notepad replacement. I don’t use it to code, e-mail or work on a batch of files. I use it as a real notepad. Jot down quick notes, perform swift text manipulation. (token replacement without needing to remember regex) I also use it as a global “edit” on all files. (because sometimes, you just wanna see a file in good ol’ text). So on my right click of EVERY file the second item is: “With Metapad..”.

Cheers to such a good program!
[Only wishlist: let me rearrange the icons, I sometimes have small windows and the font and topmost buttons are hidden]

Not just for editing, Metapad is THE best “bookmark” app on the planet, if you are willing to use CTRL-F Find. The Favorite Files menu makes Metapad truly useful for note taking, brain storming, to-do lists, you name it. Especially useful with WordWeb, BTW. Thanks for Metapad!

Anyway, thanks for creating this extremely useful piece of software!

Probably came from Chris Pirillo. Jeff Coyle: I agree with you. I tried Notepad++, which self-appointed gurus like, and it was awful.

Really, nothing quite as clean and lean as this tool. Personally, I would not change a thing (except to make it more compatible with Vista/Win7). Especially love the purple icon!! :)
