Hi there people of webmasterworld,

I have searched for a few days now, tried a couple of offerings, and none of the editors I have found do what I want.

I would like a small plain text editor similar to textPad, that supports code folding, this is all. Either that or a bigger monitor ;)

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
MRb

Eclipse does code folding. It is a full-blown IDE though.

Hi there Coopster,

Yeah, that's the reason I haven't got it, that coupled with the over-complex setting up that's required. Been looking on and off most of today and haven't found anything.

I shall carry on as I am I think :)

Cheers,

You should just go with the bigger monitor if you ask me...I loves me some big monitors!

I use an ancient copy of Ultraedit - not sure if it's even being sold or developed anymore.

Hi all,

fetchblog: Yup, high five to that! I have gone large at work, opted for widescreen too, which is handy when you have a conditional clause which goes wider than your standard 4:3 monitor ;)

caribguy: Yes, I have heard of that, but I am still checking most days to see if something for my home workstation is any better.

I tried Vim as DC suggested, but I thought I was in 1986 when I was using it, quite disorientating, and funny, retro is meant to be back too lol.

Oh well, keep looking then.

Cheers,
MRb

I've been an UltraEdit user for years. They were one of the few text editors that could handle Asian languages when I researched. It's a great editor with a lot more power than I probably need. It's still actively developed.

Hi there SomethingInteresting ;)

Welcome to the forum :)

Yes, I have tried it, and still keep going back to TextPad. I downloaded UltraEdit last night and played around with it for a while, and for the moment, the jury is out on that...

I live in hope of finding something that does just what textpad does, with the addition of code folding.

Cheers,

Notepad++ does code folding. It's a great free editor.
