    "Great text editor with tons of professional features"

    January 01, 2013   |   By Andreas_W

    Version: SynWrite 4.6.570

    Pros

    - Tons of professional features (code folding, syntax highlighting, macros etc.)
    - Works standalone and as Total Commander lister plugin.
    - Highly configurable.
    - Portable installation possible, all settings stored in .ini files.
    - Open source, free.
    - Quick and extensive support directly from the developer.

    Cons

    - Relatively new and therefore not so many users yet.

    Summary

    I use it as a code editor for C++ SW development and as a general-purpose editor for .txt files, and I'm very satisfied with it. (Have used UltraEdit before, which is also very good, but it's not free and has some other shortcomings compared to SynWrite.)

    "The best editor in its class."

    October 25, 2012   |   By Stefan987

    Version: SynWrite 4.3.220

    Pros

    Of all editors in this category SynWrite has the ideal blend of features that really matter, coupled with a user-friendly interface that can be customized in every detail.
    Different sizes of icon sets are provided - very useful for better handling on high resolution monitors.
    SynWrite is portable and lightweight, it has never crashed on any of my machines, speed and performance are above average, forum support is outstanding.

    Cons

    None that I am aware of.

    Summary

    For years I had been using several editors - each had their pros and cons, some had the customizable interface I cherished, but were missing an important feature, others carried too much overhead resulting in poor performance. Some turned out to have persistent bugs, and their developer seemed unable or unwilling to fix it.
    For me, these troubles are over now. SynWrite suits my requirements perfectly.
