1. Learn One EditorQedit for Windows can edit your host files on the HP 3000 and HP-UX systems, and your local PC files or network server files. Learning a different editor for each of these platforms would be counter-productive and confusing for your fingers!
2. Short Learning CurveQedit for Windows has an easy-to-learn, intuitive, point-and-click interface. You’ll be off to the races in no time.
3. Multiple FilesWith Qedit for Windows, you can have multiple files open per host server as well as local files. You can display them on the same screen—tiled or cascaded according to your preference. This is great for cutting and pasting and for using a file for reference.
4. Fast Access to FilesQedit for Windows’ unique client/server design transfers only those parts of the file that you are in the process of editing.

6. Split ScreenUse the split screen feature to get multiple views of the same file by splitting it either horizontally or vertically. You can keep a portion of a file in view while you edit another section of the same file. For example, refer to the data declarations in one view while you write code in the other view.

15. Qedit Remembers Your SettingsQedit for Windows remembers file-specific attributes such as the display ruler, tab stops, guidelines, font, auto-indent, cursor position, highlighted selections, etc. When you re-open the file, Qedit remembers how you had it set up and puts your cursor at the position where you left off.
