Pros: Excellent, complete functionality. Templates are easy to modify. Great support from author on existing issues.
Other Thoughts: Apparently I'm one of the few people who still works from the console (i.e. "DOS prompt"), and it had some issues with loading files in that manner, but he has been persistent in addressing these issues.
For over 25 years I used a paid editor, MultiEdit, but that is no longer supported and I've been looking for a replacement. PsPad is *definitely* an excellent replacement for MultiEdit in my professional work (using C/C++).
