PolyEdit is a compact multipurpose word processor and text editor for Microsoft Windows. The program can be downloaded as PolyEdit Lite, which is free for home use. A paid-for version is also available. PolyEdit can compress and encrypt documents saved in its native Enhanced Text Format (*.etf), using the Blowfish and SHA-1 algorithms. It can embed OLE objects and images (the latter including PNG files, JPEGs, BMPs, GIFs, and icons).
