"Simplest the most feature packed free editor available!"

August 23, 2013  |  By zdubduke

 |  Version: RJ TextEd 8.65

Pros

Yes, it is complex simply because it so full featured. Don't download if all you need is a basic Notepad replacement. Download if you need a sophisticated editor with customizable language syntax highlighting, auto complete, tag matching, html preview, code folding, ftp edit, bookmarks, project manager with virtual folders, regex & folder-based search/replace, etc etc. The list goes on and on.

Constantly being updated with new features.

Cons

You WILL encounter occasional bugs. But that's not that much of a con because the author is very proactive about fixing them! Check out the forum and you'll see what I mean. The Help file is complete but really in need of a revamp; sometimes difficult to find what you are looking for.

Summary

This should be at the top of your list when looking for a Windows-based code editor. I've tried all of the free & shareware editors and found this to be the most capable. RJ Texted also holds its own against commercial editors. It really needs wider recognition and you should send the author some money for this great program. Unhesitatingly five stars!

"Good program"

June 07, 2013  |  By Zelah-Hutchinson

 |  Version: RJ TextEd 8.61

Pros

User defined syntax highlighting works well.
User defined code folding works well.

Cons

Too complex. I am a bit afraid that I will accidentally click on something that I shouldn't.
Too much screen space devoted to functions I probably will not use.

"Excellent text editor"

July 13, 2010  |  By BrewmanNH

 |  Version: RJ TextEd 6.52

Pros

Fast, efficient, supports lots of programming languages and the ones it doesn't support out-of-the-box can be imported from UltraEditor's wordfiles and converted to the Texted format.

Cons

Some of the code folding for programming languages is a little hard to get working without a lot of manual effort with the syntax editor.

Summary

I use it for editing scripts and programs I'm writing and it has all the features I need. I was using Programmer's Notepad prior to this, but the syntax files (schemes) are impossible to edit and make work. This has a syntax editor built in, and although it's not completely simple to use, with enough effort, you can figure it out pretty quickly. This program also has a portable version that doesn't need to be installed, and the configuration files are 100% compatible with the installable version so you can take your settings with you.

It is updated on a regular basis (as of when I wrote this) and the author is very accessible and friendly to suggestions and comments on his site's forums. I don't think you'll find an easier, friendlier, or feature rich text editor especially for free. You won't go wrong giving this one a try.
