PolyEdit is a compact multipurpose word processor and text editor for Microsoft Windows. It has been developed by PolySoft Solutions since 1998.
The program is distributed as shareware.



PolyEdit can compress and encrypt documents saved in its native ETF format, using the Blowfish and SHA-1 algorithms. It can embed OLE objects and images (the latter including PNG files, JPEGs, BMPs, GIFs, and icons). The program supports basic tables and multiple columns, as well as hyperlinks, and features syntax highlighting for C++ and other programming languages. Another key feature is PolyEdit's email client, which has a simple address book with an import feature.
PolyEdit seamlessly integrates with such products as IntelliComplete Server and WordWeb.[1]

User interface

The program has a similar user interface to classic versions of Microsoft Word and Adobe InCopy, but uses another approach to document management. The multidocument interface of PolyEdit (called PolyDocking) allows to navigate between open files with tabs. Besides, it supports intuitive docking of documents and tools for better productivity.[2]


PolyEdit has been criticized by several reviewers for lacking some standard word processing features such as support for footnotes and PDF export.[3][4][5] However, support for PDF export (via third-party software) was added in version 5.2 in 2009.
