EmEditor Free is a free software. You can use it as Notepad-replacement with enhanced features like syntax-colored highlighting, find and replace function, Unicode support, and printing capabilities. However, this free version does not include many features that EmEditor Professional offers, such as very large file support, plug-ins, macros, vertical selection editing, etc.
Starting with v13, EmEditor Free and EmEditor Professional will use the same binary program. Running a single command switches Professional to Free, and vice versa. However, the Free version is available only for personal use.
To change from EmEditor Professional to EmEditor Free, select Quick Launch (CTRL+Q) on the Tools menu, type “downgrade”, and press Enter twice. To change from EmEditor Free to EmEditor Professional, select Quick Launch (CTRL+Q) on the Tools menu, type “upgrade”, and press Enter twice.
