"Get a word processor!"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a great little text editor, and if you're larcenous you can treat it as freeware and it still works forever! I paid. I'll pay again, eventually. This has saved my bacon on many occasions, and has features that I've seen in text-editors that are way more expensive and not as friendly. If you want something that's more like a word processor, then you should get a word processor. Tom Bender tells you up front that Tex-Edit is intended to be between Apple's ho-hum TextEdit and a regular word processor, but heck, with scripts and all the other frills you can add, you can turn it into a light weight word processor. It the freeware Excalibur isn't good enough as a spelling checker, go out and buy one. I know, I know, it can't hurt to ask. Well, if there's a way to do it, maybe Tom Bender can figure a way to get this spiffy shareware product to tap into the OSX spell-checking and dictionary services.
