  • Toad Edge always works with UTF-8 encoding. Any files that you open are converted to UTF-8 when opened and all files are saved in UTF-8 encoding.

Product Licensing

Three types of licenses are available for Toad Edge:

  • Freeware - basic mode which is active when no other license is supplied
  • Trial - unlimited mode which lasts for a set period (for example, the initial 30-day Trial)
  • Commercial - unlimited mode gained by purchasing and using a Commercial license in the application

As mentioned in Introduction, you need to create and sign in to your Quest Software account in order to start using Toad Edge. After you create your account, you are provided an initial 30-day Trial license. This allows you to try out the application and all of its features.

Once the Trial period elapses, you can purchase and supply a Commercial license to continue using Toad Edge without limitations. Otherwise, the application will revert to the Freeware mode. You will be still able to use all Freeware features, but you will not be able to access Commercial features.

The following matrix lists all features that can be used in Freeware and Trial/Commercial versions of Toad Edge.
