That's great news! I have always liked TED Notepad, it has a lot of useful features and it (at least in 5.4.2) doesn't require an installation. The main issue I had with it is it is very slow on good sized files, which I need to get into regularly. We'll have to see if the text storage engine improvements help.

Off to download!  :up:

For those times of handling big files I use 'RJ Texted' (the portable version). However, the user interface of that editor will scar(e) you, if you would compare it with TED Notepad.
