MarkdownPad Editor's Review

It is not really difficult to create basic webpages, having said that, if you don’t know about HTML, it can be a tedious task. HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language which basically is used to create webpages. It is not a difficult language to learn but required to create webpages. What if I say that basic webpages can be created without any knowledge of HTML? Yes, it is really possible which a little known little program called MarkdownPad. It is an application which converts the text you type in the text window into the HTML, without making any changes to formatting. It keeps the formatting changes making it easier for you to create HTML pages.

MarkdownPad is easy to download and install. It is effectively around 2.5Mb in size and requires internet connection to install which is a bad news for users with no internet connection.MarkdownPad is made to work on Windows and works on almost all Windows’ versions.It is not a resource hog and therefore it works perfectly on Computers with lesser RAM and CPU clock speed too. Installation is quick and completes within a minutes on a good data connection.

You may find MarkdownPad interface too much populated and hence complicated on the first glance but it’s uncluttered and equally easy to use. It’s almost same as that of Word 2003 or Notepad with added functionalities. At first, interface is divided into two sections, one for typing text and other is a preview pane which can be disabled. You can customize interface’s color scheme by going into Editor Tab in options dropdown button available in main menu. There are plenty of other options you can modify in the options panel and in the main menu.

Text, with formatting, is automatically converted to HTML just as you type. You can implement almost all HTML tags with ease of using Notepad and that too without any knowledge of HTML. However, there are only two headings sizes available with this, which is a little concerning for users who generally work on a hierarchal headings model. More importantly, you can even stylize the HTML document according to your needs. You can change the page background and a few other things to make the document according to your requirements. You can also use your own CSS if you want to more control over styling. HTML code can either be copied to notepad or any other text editor or you can directly export it as an HTML file. Overall, using this software is as easy as it could be and as a walk in the garden and as effective as coding HTML yourself.

Positive points:
  -  Nice and uncluttered user interface.
  -  Easy to use and no knowledge of HTML is required.

Negative Points:
  -  Needs Internet Connection to get installed.
  -  Only two headings customizations are allowed.

MarkdownPad is a nifty little that converts formatted text to HTML efficiently. This software is so easy to use that even a computer novice can use it. It doesn’t have many features but it efficient at what it is made to do. Despite a few limitations, this program is a must install for both experts and beginners as it eases out the task of creating HTML document.
