Softpad v.3 Released

This release brings more refinement and features:

- Printing is enhanced and should work better.
- Many parts of the code were cleaned up.

Features I'm trying to implement in the future include line numbering, highlighting the current line, and a file change indicator.

Softpad v.1 Released

This is Softpad v.1, the first release. It is in the alpha phase and several features are not working:

- The Favorites system doesn't work.
- For some reason, even though the font is saved between sessions, font and background colors are not.
- Settings are always saved in the registry; the option to save to a file does not work.

Other than the above, everything works but there are a few bugs I've seen and haven't fixed yet.
