UltraEdit: remastered v24 for Windows now available

Upgrade to state-of-the-art standards

View, modify, and save files of any encoding type – without tweaking font or display settings.

The Unicode refactoring of UltraEdit is a big deal. But we didn't stop there. As previously announced, UltraEdit v24 not only changes the game for Unicode / UTF-8, but also all things encoding. By tapping into OS font substitution calls, you can open a file encoded as UTF-8, or Japanese ANSI, or OEM, or virtually any other encoding – and it will look exactly the way you expect.

With UltraEdit v24, you can:

  • Freely use Unicode in macros and scripts
  • Open, edit, and save files with Unicode paths or names without issue
  • Enjoy full Unicode support in the function list, tag list, output window, and more
  • Enjoy greatly improved and automatic encoding detection – no more manually setting a file's code page!
  • Open and view files of any character set / encoding without having to futz with font or display settings
  • Convert your file to UTF-8 when pasting Unicode data into a non-Unicode file
  • Easily configure UltraEdit for handling Unicode and other code pages with the new encoding settings

Compact Ribbon Mode
Expand UltraEdit's coding support and syntax highlighting with the "Add and remove languages" feature.
Add a new coding language or highlighting for an esoteric config file with ease. Click "Add another language..." in the Coding tab, search for the language you want to add, and check mark it. It's that easy. Use the "Defaults" button to clear everything out and reset your syntax highlighting back to factory defaults.

Menu/Toolbard Mode
Add images to your HTML with simple drag-and-drop.
HTML editing is fun again! Click and drag images directly into your web-based files: in HTML files, the images will go in as <img> links, while in CSS, the image URL will be inserted as a background property. Customize the format to your liking under Settings » Editor » Image drag-and-drop, or hold Ctrl while dragging and dropping to modify the format on the fly.
