Sometimes I post on a forum whose editor lost its color formatting capability. Yet it still reads the formatting code properly (bold, italics underline, color, size, maybe font .. color and bold and italics are what I mostly use). So I can go to another forum, prepare a post, change it with the toggle mode to code-level and then copy that code over.
However, I would rather do it in an editor on disk. Is that easy in Atlantis or Abiword or RightNote or TreeDbNotes or KeyNote or OpenOffice or this or that ? Or perhaps a code editor ? Something nice and light. I may end up using this to save a copy as well, as forums vary on archiving, per google and crashing threads.
Sometimes I compose in Eudora, it would compose and usually cut-and-paste nicely (forums vary some) the rtf formatted text (which won't work for my problem forum, it needs the underlying code). And the Eudora "view source" level seems to be for incoming mail and too cluttered. And while Eudora has decent search, I would rather archive in a special folder-smart thing.
So far, I looked in RightNote, but did not see a "view source" type of button. I could write the developer, I was quite impressed with the bar and help layouts overall.
Your thoughts appreciated.
Oh, it should be able to take my pics from Abbyy Screenshot Reader, that are passed through the clipboard.
