Windows 7: Looking for text editor with tabs, ruler, wrap

16 May 2011   #11


Much appreciated, but there's an overwhelming number of them out there. I'll sift through 'em, but I really just want something like PSPad (i.e. tabbed docs and wrap to ruler). All those programmer features are overkill.

I'll post back here when I find some promising ones.

I believe "Courier New" is needed for a fixed width font, not "Courier".

For testing alignment issues I usually go with Lucinda Console. If that doesn't align then it's not the fault of the font. Once you know what's what then you can switch to another font.
