One that was just announced on here for a DC special that I use a lot is e.  It's definitely not your standard text editor, but once you get into using it, you really see the power of it.

I saw it and actually thought about if I should buy it.
But e looks not mighty enough to be worth the price...

Out of the box, I'd agree.  Where it comes into its own is its extensibility, and the ability to use textmate bundles.  You can pretty much make it into whatever you want.  Add to that the command line capabilities of the new version, and it was pretty much a no-brainer for me (of course, I got upgrade pricing, so that helped).

Well, I still use Vim, so the "additional" pricing does not make it a no-brainer to me, so I am just wondering...

There's always the trial.  What makes it a no-brainer for you or not is for you to decide.

Hm, OK - forgot about the trial.

I'll trial it next week, not really much time right now. Last time I tested it, I was not really convinced anyway.  smiley

If you really would like to give more than $30 for a text editor, i would prefer EmEditor.

Extremely fast, lightweight, and full op options and plugins.

EditPad Pro Version 7 released today! I've been beta testing this for the last several months and can attest to its stability and functionality.

Best text editor... ever! (imho)

It seems like the new version only has gotten better. It was superb before, and still is.

One thing I would've liked is to make it possible to define/save multiple keyboard layouts (just about
everything else in EPP 7 allows it, such as colors,text layouts, caret's, etc, and many of those are per filetype).

In a perfect world you'd be able to say this about any new software release.  Too bad that's not so.

mwb1100, that's true.

One thing I seriously liked in EPP6, and which seems to have gotten even better is the possibility to define any language for
syntax coloring. If it doesn't have it already, and you can't download it from others (which made and uploaded it) within the program,
just make it yourself somewhat easily (at least if you know regular expressions as those are more or less completely regex driven).

I have UltraEdit Studio 11 and NoteTab too, but regarding syntax coloring etc, EPP seems unbeatable.

Yes, no doubt that the syntax highlighting is one of EPP's greatest strengths. And Version 7 has taken this to a whole 'nother level with generalized bracketing highlighting. You can independently define any number of matching opening and closing brackets using JGSoft's regular expression syntax and the syntax scheme editing program. You can set the editor to highlight the innermost matching brackets which light up whenever the cursor is anywhere between them. You can jump back and forth between open and close brackets with CTRL+] and you can select everything between them with CTRL+[. And as I mentioned in the opening post, EPP recognizes and handles HTML/XML tags as brackets too. Very handy for navigating (and validating/correcting matching brackets).

If you are into regular expressions, I've written some modified syntax highlighter schemes (for Javascript and PHP/PCRE syntax) which provide bracketing highlighting while editing the regular expressions themselves. When editing a regex, its pretty handy to be able to see the current level of parentheses (and verify their proper matching).

And it looks like Jan is offering a free trial this time around, so you don't have to purchase it to give it a go.

Had a look at EditPad Pro 7 thanks to it being mentioned here. Looks to be a very good editor, though I'm not sure I could justify the 40€ compared to Notepad++ being free.

Distinct features or what I like about it compared to Notepad++ (note that I mostly code in VS but use an external editor for XML or config files, but sometimes code as well):
  • Bracket highlighting
  • Select between matching brackets seems very useful
  • File navigator. Very cool!
  • Two-key shortcuts (so I could mimic VS shortcuts)
  • Powerful find and replace (e.g. Adapt case)
  • Copy without selection copies current line (like in VS)
  • Instant highlight (but Notepad++ has that as well)
  • Spell checker (but couldn't try in Trial version)

What I like about Notepad++ which EditPad Pro 7 doesn't seem to have:
  • Indent guide
  • Show word wrap symbol when word wrap enabled
  • Auto completion (e.g. for XML)
  • Keyboard shortcut to cycle through 'List All Matches' results
  • Windows standard context menu in File Explorer view (for source control integration)

There's not DC member discount for EditPad Pro 7, or is there?

Other than the background, I like his website.  Simple, fast, and good-looking in my opinion.  Just like his software.  He's really one of my favorite programmers.

The software is not the point. (The pricing is.  Grin Been using Expresso for a while now as RegexBuddy is not really cheap...)

But a website without any navigating elements or at least a "back" button is somewhat unintuitive. And usually the website is one of the first things a potential customer sees, so when there is a website that is hard to navigate, the potential customer thinks: Hey, this guy doesn't even manage to bring some structure into a website, so I won't even try his software.

Finally see "Full support for Unicode" listed as a major improvement, so I might give it a try this summer. Hope they do the same for AceText as well.

That's one of those editors that I never tried out because the information at the web site isn't enough to warrant downloading the trial. I need to see screenshots and more details before I download a trial. (I hate when sites only have screencasts.)

I tried EmEditor a number of years ago (2001 or 2002 I think), but stayed with EditPlus because I really needed Korean, and at the time EditPlus was better and easier -- EmEditor was the only other editor that actually worked properly for what I needed. EmEditor required a bit more effort and IIRC only had a single document per instance. It's improved massively since then though. I got to meet the author last year at SIC. smiley Hmmm... Can't seem to find any pictures of us. Just this one.


+1 for Expresso -- it's an excellent utility. smiley

...

I have used e every now and then since I won a license here on DC. It has some cool and unique features (Bundles, Command mode, show whitespace under selection, store unnamed files in session, and more). I've made a whole list of stuff comparing it with Notepad++ with the goal of posting it here in the e review topic. Unfortunately, I can't find it any more Sad

Anyway, I can remember the two main points turning me off of e:
  • stability problems. I had many crashes, leading to a situation where e wouldn't start any more until you deleted its configuration.
  • the forums indicate total lack of support (the project seems dead)

^ I think the point is that they aren't unique, but are the same as textmate, so you can use the established textmate bundles.  I haven't had any problems with stability, so I'm not sure if that's an interaction with anything else.
