Windows editors - do they have to be so bad?

<< < (9/20) > >>

I don't see how [most] Windows (oh..text) editors [that you had tried] not having the features you specifically wanted are so bad. Your requirements are  not really cattered to from your findings so far .. no?

Correct.  And the customer is always right   ;D ;D ;D

Actually, I like TED Notepad, enough to donate; I like Crimson Editor too.  But neither of them has all the features I want in one place.

I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but emacs has the marks/blocks function you like:

As with programming languages, my leaning these days is to not try to do everything with a single choice -- there is some overhead in switching temporarily, but often enough I have found it worthwhile.

Recently I have found the following to be useful: emacs, vi (various flavors), notepad, notepad++, pspad, and wordpad.

My two local currency units ;)

The mark feature works in intelliJ IDEA, which is (by far) the best editor I've ever seen. If you forget that it's part of an IDE, and supports only a few languages (quite many, actually, but not some I need to be totally set), prepare to be amazed.

Has anyone tried free Komodo Edit from Activestate?
