Hi there people of the forum!

I have been using TextPad now for website development for as long as I can remember, however since changing to Vista and getting all the necessary updates, I have noticed a rather strange thing.

If I highlight an area to copy/paste/delete, every so often I get a remnant left over from the original selection, and the only way to get rid of it is if I envelope it in another highlighted area. Irritating. But not off putting.

Just wondered if anyone else has this issue?

Cheers,
MRb

Never had that particular issue, I like TextPad a lot.

Hi there Mark_A,

Yes, I have used it now for as long as I can remember, I cannot understand why they will not include an FTP client in there, then to me it would be the perfect text editor!

As I said it' not intrusive, just irritating, completely random.

Cheers,
MRb

For me, that falls into the same category as "this is really a great claw hammer, wonder why there's not a crescent-wrench jaw on the handle?"

Love TextPad for building content, but use screwdrivers for prying up paintcan lids, shotguns for communication with politicians, and Filezilla for FTP.

Admittedly, I don't do much incremental updating of files in large folders: if I did, CMS would be more important.

Hi there hutcheson,

Well, I can understand that, well sort of - I have no idea what a crescent-wrench thingy is though lol!

I have been using textpad for ages now - before then I was on dreamweaver - but I got fed up of it's high memory useage and crappy "I know better than you" UI.

FTP: I use the cmd line stuff from dos for easy stuff & fireFtp for large multi-directory content.

Cheers,
MRb
