Editors' reviewThis overly complicated text editor doesn't offer any cutting-edge features and isn't very user-friendly. SmEdit's elementary interface offers a string of icons for basic text-editing tools that are easily understandable. Less clear are the five labeled only with Roman numerals or the three with Run followed by a letter of the alphabet. Noticeably missing is a print button. The online help file cleared up some of these mysteries: the three alpha buttons launch user-designated text files and can be set up through Options. The file also explained that additional options are offered on a context menu, and a print option was found there. However, the help file didn't offer an adequate explanation for using the numbered icons. The complexities involved with setting up and using this program didn't seem warranted by its features or functionality, and users of all levels can easily find a more intuitive and effective text-editing program.
SmEdit is a compact text editor that packs far more features than its size suggests. Due to its highly configurable design, it can be as basic or as featured as you want. This makes SmEdit an extremely quick loading and flexible editor for most tasks. All Sinner Computing software, including SmEdit, was developed using SmEdit. Highlights include: Auto selection of font, text colour, background colour and word wrap based on the files extension, bookmarks, programmable label search, programmable context menu insert text and run file list, auto file registering for 12 file types (plus 2 customizable types) with a unique descriptive icon for each file type, optional and configurable toolbar, optional Status bar, tray minimisation, word/character/letter/number/line/sentence count, external modification notification, partial loading for extremely large filesa customizable tool bar, a status bar with line and column number display, Unicode support, customisable time insert and auto save.
