Some more editors of mention...
« on: March 11, 2007, 11:05:06 AM »
I've used Multi Edit for years.  They don't have lifetime upgrades, so I still use an older version, but as a person who tries every text editor out there, even the older version is excellent for programmers.

http://www.multiedit.com

For lightweight editing, I also use notepad++.  It's open source, it handles most anything I throw at it, and it's light weight.  What else can you ask for?

I also use raize scratch pad.  I just like the interface on this one- and the price wasn't too bad on it.

I haven't tried them all, but my text editor of choice is definitely NoteTab Pro

I've been using it for 5-6 years and functionally very rich. Some of the advanced features can take a bit to learn, but very worthwhile.

Most friends use the Lite (and free) version and there's only a few advanced features not available.

Too many features to list, but one very productive one is writing your own paste clips, macros, libraries etc, very powerful.

Slickedit. Stuck at version 6 cause I just can't justify the 299 price tag but even at version 6 it was a programmers editor which didnt look down at perl or php and had almost all it's great ide features work for those languages too.

Can't find the files i need for v6 anymore though  :'(

What about CodePad, another excellent freeware editor aimed at programmers, but quite useful for everyone.  You can find it at http://shicola.wz.cz...codepad/features.php  It supports column select (use the Alt key), supports 64 programming languages for syntax highlighting out of the box, and much more.  I find it great for general text editing too.

A search didn't turn up GridinSoft Notepad so I felt I should add it too. I was considering paying for it but it doesn't support Unicode of UTF-8 and in this day and age that seems unacceptable. It's excellent on everything else though.

what about PSPad? it's light-weight, freeware and supports a multitude of languages.

I also use raize scratch pad.  I just like the interface on this one- and the price wasn't too bad on it.

their website has this nice-looking font: Raize Font
