To get WD Officepad, you first need to download the RAR file and extract it. When you have extracted the file contents, simply double click on the WD Officepad.exe file to run the text editor. It will give you the interface as shown above. You will see a Blue-White colored theme, I have changed the theme of mine so you are seeing it different.
The main toolbar for using most of the features of WD Officepad are at top. It has following options: New, Open, Open using path, Auto Save mode, Reading Mode, Save, Search, Font, Mark Favorite, More Tools, Recent Notes, Favorite List, Settings, and Profile Settings.
All these features are self-explanatory so I will not go into their depth. I will explain only the key features of WD Officepad and mention the tools under which you can find that particular feature.

To lock any note, you only have to click on the lock icon at the bottom right corner. When you want to unlock it, simply click on the icon again.
This feature lets you edit script files from within the WD Officepad. You can do this from the Tools drop down menu. When you have selected the script editor option, you will see the interface shown below. All the option related to script editing are present just above it.
The Clipboard Manager is the feature using which you can manage all your clipboard text easily. The icon for the clipboard manager is at the bottom right just next to lock note feature. It will give you a pop-up which includes the complete list of clipboard text.
To use any text, you only have to click on it and it gets saved to the system clipboard automatically. Now, you have to paste it in the note just like you paste any other copied text.
This feature lets you make the note transparent and you can see through it. This option can be found under the tools just next to Clipboard Manager. You have to choose the transparency option and use the slider to adjust the transparency level. When you have adjusted it, you will see the note being transformed to transparent.
