"Replace Notepad for almost every need!"
Great for multiple languages. Multipule Buffers are very handy. Color printing is GREAT! I do a lot with XML/SVG Code Fragments & use the Miltiple Buffers for it.
The only Con I've encountered is with has been with Read-Only Files. In my developement, I want to use a modified version of a File that I've made Read-Only (to protect it) & instead of forcing a Save with a New Filename the editing is turned off. I either have to Copy & Un-protect the New File BEFORE I can do any editing OR Save with a New Filename & then do editing. IT SHOULD REALLY FORCE A "SAVE AS" either before allowing edits OR do this AFTER edits are made.
Very handy program, I keep 2 Files I change all the time always Open! That way I Open them both at the same time. I've also Pinned it to my Taskbar.
