Welcome to my Atom Imp Text Editor/Conversion program page. From the ubiquitous Notepad and its many enhancements to some highly specialized (and complicated) text editors there is a legion of both free and expensive text editors available. Unfortunately none of them meet my needs so I wrote my own and am making it available for free.

While all of the features I needed are available if I installed a collection of text editors and text encoding converters that results in an overly complicated program environment which requires constant switching between programs and which is very error prone and time consuming. What I needed was a relatively simple (hence less error prone) program which combined the features of both a straightforward text editor and a text encoding converter.

The program is almost self-explanatory but, if needed, an extensive help system is available that will guide you though the use of the text editor. In addition a video tutorial is available that explains how to use the editor.

Note: The Atom Imp Text Editor/Converter program is a straightforward text editor and text encoding converter. It is not a word processor and it does not store the textual information in Rich Text Format (RTF) or Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). All text is stored as simple text in a text file using the encoding specified by you as the document's author.

Since no one program was available which meets my needs I wrote my own with the following useful attributes:

I hope you find this program useful. This program is only one of several utility programs which I've developed over the last several years in order to support other programming projects but it is one that I find very useful. I developed these programs as a form of mental therapy in order to not become a mental vegetable after being released from the hospital and nursing homes (kudos to my daughter for devising this therapy).

Providing these utility programs for free is somewhat of an experiment. If they prove to be useful enough to result in prodigious downloads I probably will not be able to continue unless I receive enough contributions to pay for the continued development and distribution of these programs. If you find these programs useful I urge you help by contributing (i.e., simply click on the program's contribute button).

To provide feedback on my Atom Imp Text Editor program go to the Text Editor/Conversion Facebook page.

As I receive additional resources I'll continue converting and upgrading my utility programs and providing them free to the public. In fact, in order to continue my mental therapy, I welcome suggestions for additional programs that you may wish were available. To make a suggestion just leave a comment on my Atom Imp Facebook page.
