Grab the title bar of the mobile window. Drag it over the right scroll bar or right border and drop it when you see it snap in place. Any of the windows on the right are "dockable", meaning you can drag them free to float anywhere on the screen. Or you can dock them to the left or right. TIP: You can drag your FTP or Links window to the right and then even close them, but any time you restart PSPad, they will be returned to the Project Tree on the left.Back to Questions
You might want to keep up, say the ASCII table, but not take away space from the editor window. So you float it. Or switch sides. As long as your Project Tree is showing, you might want your Clipboard Monitor docked in there, rather than taking up more room on the right.Back to Questions

Two modes. Restore all files (gray check) restores all open files from last PSPad state. Restores only files opened in PSPad: You edit some files in PSPad. Exit PSPad, run it again, files are back. Now exit PSPad, open some file from TotalCommander in PSPad, exit PSPad. Than run PSPad again. Back are files you previously edited, but not files you opened from Total Commander or with double click in Windows Explorer. See Save desktop.Back to Questions

Additional tool button icon sets are stored in the Skin (.\PSPad\Skin) folder. Using you favorite graphics editor, make whatever changes you wish and be sure to save your changes. Open PSPad and select the updated icon set from Program Settings > Program - Look > Tool button icon set. Click OK.
If you would like to edit the default skin but cannot find it in the Skin folder you may need to extract it using a resource editor.
PSPad does not need a typical installation process: no registry entries etc. But it assumes a certain folder structure in the folder from which it is run. The PSPad.exe binary will run from anywhere with no auxiliary files, but only in its default language, which is Czech.
If you want PSPad in your native language and PSPad's advanced functionalities, you should have a folder structure like this:
PSPad.exe PSPad.ini -Lang (folder) --English.ini --Deutsch.ini --Francais.ini -Script (folder) --JScript (folder) ---YourScript.js --VBScript (folder) -(etc.)
The installer will create all these folders for you. If for some reason you do not want an installer for PSPad, you can choose to download an archived version, which is basically all these folders compressed into one large file. This file will have a name that is similar to PSPad12345.cab.
You must uncompress this archive file with the option "preserve subfolders" (or similar) enabled. Good programs to get this done are IZArc (http://www.izarc.org/) or 7-Zip (http://7-zip.org/). Just uncompress PSPad with "preserve subfolders" option checked, and everything will be fine.Back to Questions

There are several ways to find text:
Very powerful addition to the Find command. I used: Caption=[A-Z]\w+ to find all lines with Caption followed by = and a Capitol Letter, followed by any letters and a space. Then F3 gave me the next. Learn them! (See Regular Expressions)Back to Questions
Use Ctrl+H to Find/Replace text in active file. Alt-F is the key I assigned to Find/Replace in Files. Be careful. Use the List button to see proposed changes. Find/Replace in Files is very powerful, and thereby dangerous. Can change all occurrences in all files in a directory.Back to Questions

You can't modify the Filter Mask in Highlighter Settings / Filter for the User highlighters (bold font). Other highlighters are editable there. User highlighter Filter Mask you can edit in Tools / User highlighter

First check out AutoCorrect: menu Tools / Spell Settings ... and enter some values for words you want replaced when you hit a space after you write them. For example, I put in my initials "sel" and my name "Steve LeBlanc". So anytime I type sel, followed by a space, it gets changed to "Steve LeBlanc". It was designed for fixing common typos, but works great for abbreviated entries. For more complex items, use Clips and User Clips. Follow the first few letters of the command (or tag) with Ctrl+Space. Or follow the full name with Shift+Space. Clips are predefined for the major languages, like C, HTML, PHP and Perl.Back to Questions
No, it is just a fast way to enter the rest of any single word you have started to write, a word which is already in the current document. It saves me little time. But I'm a pretty good typist. Some people love it.Back to Questions

User variables are used in Clips (See Context Files) They are always surrounded by %percentsigns% and you may use predefined ones or add/edit/delete your own using User variables dialog box (See Menu - Settings).
[pi | Insert number value pi]
To insert the value of PI into your document, press Ctrl+Space and select pi. You must add or modify the clip in the language.def you use with your language/filetype.
i.e. PSPad\Context\HTML.def for html files.
You are not required to use them, you could wrote 3,1415... directly in the clip unter "[pi | Insert number value pi]", but the other way you could modify the value easly using User variables dialog box. You can also use the build-in variables in clips. i.e. %FileName%, %Company% or %Date% and so on.
No! PSPad only handles text files. To upload binary files, you will need a full functioning FTP client, such as ws_FTP LE or FileZilla. Even if you Open in Hex Editor, the "Save To FTP" will be grayed out. There is no Binary transfer mode available in this FTP client.Back to Questions
Open as Text creates a local copy of the file in the Windows Temp folder. This makes for fast edits and saves. You may then Right Click the tab and select Save To FTP. Direct Edit, on the other hand, never saves a local copy. Any time you hit Save, it saves to the FTP host. Direct Edit is better for quick edits and will also prevent you from forgetting to save your changes to the FTP site. When you double click a file, you get a Direct Edit.Back to Questions

You may create or find a .HLP or .CHM file for your particular computer language on the Internet. You can then configure it in Tools / Highlighter Settings / Filters tab / Help file:.
