Simple user interface
All the program's functions are displayed using a single window. The app's workspace is divided in three smaller windows. The first provides access to the files and folders stored in your computer. The second lets you view and edit the text, while the third is an output window where you can see the program's messages for different actions.
Work with multiple files
The tool can load multiple files at the same time, making them available in tabs as well as in a file tree area that provides both the location and the name of the file. Among the features of the application there is the String Window, an area that provides quick access to various code presets in order to shorten the time for text editing. The application comes with built-in examples, which can be modified and enriched with new strings. The text pieces can be anything from snippets of code that need to be adjusted to fit the current project to symbols, commands, regular expressions or anything the user needs.
Edit your text
The inserted text can be viewed in a column mode, word wrapped or have the HEX values displayed for the it. The utility can remove tabs and spaces automatically. You can switch the text to upper or lower case letters and increase or decrease text indentation. The app can insert the system date and time into the document. Moreover, words can be browsed, selected or removed using the «Edit» tab.
Different encoding modes
You can change the encoding to ANSI or UTF and set the output to work on different systems like DOS, UNIX or MAC. The tool can apply different predefined scripts which can change the date format and remove empty lines or HTML tags. PilotEdit can sort, find and remove duplicate lines or be used to extract strings from the text and copy it to the Clipboard.
The utility can search and replace in multiple directories and files the custom item, useful in case you have a big text file with a lot of lines. It can open an encrypted FTP file or be used in the decryption process for your files. The program can store your FTP login details and connect to your FTP server.
