This version (7.90) is crashing on my Win 7 x64 continuously!
Come'on you can do better than that!

Ok, clarification: I'm talking about the portable version!!! (downloaded from developer's page). I went to the forum and downloaded the 7.90 beta 2 and that one is working as supposed to...

I used Notepad++ for years but it is missing a good project manager (actually it is very basic) and also missing a code/class explorer for easier medium to big projects management, RJ TextEd have one and also have the column mode as Notepad++

But it is still have many bugs, after 30 minutes of testing I found many that freeze or crash RJ.

Don't really know what to say about this, Downloaded yesterday and I'm just blown away by it. I've been a fan of Notepad++ for a long time, but this, this is just astonishing. It is absolutely superb. Notepad++ is very feature rich & I barely use most of them, but it always seems a bit "bitty" in its implementation. RJ TextEdit feels well thought out and feels like a complete application not one app with loads of plugins.
For hand coded web development I can't think of anything that has come close to it since the demise of Epic Homesite. It appears to be an application that lets YOU decide how to organise and control your project - you don't have to follow the Visual Studio, Eclipse etc, way.

For simple txt and bat files editing and things like that, it also rocks.

I've only had this installed a single day, but rarely have I come across an application (free or otherwise) that has impressed me this much.

Pity 5 stars is all I can rate.

This program is more powerful than I may ever know. I would like to be able to load rss type links from the sidebar without making them IE 'favorites'. I just haven't quite figured it out. At least the other browser option was finally fixed.
The best nfo reader hands down imo.
If the program would simply allow dragNdrop from the sidebar to the address line that would do it, but It does not work that way. I know it's an editor but the possibilities are huge.

This is the best freeware code and general text editor around. The author is very active fixing issues, improving the application and listens to all suggestions. The editor is highly functional and a pleasure to use. I can't think of any negitives.

Compared to it's competition:
Notepad++: Menus are a mess and many plugins don't work with the current version or Unicode.
PSPad: Not quite as nice to use as RJ and development of the product is slow or has stopped.

imho this programme is very buggy and still in need of a lot of work.

I'll stick with Notepad++ for now thanks.

It looks like it could be good but it has horrific crashes when opening files randomly. I disable as much auto stuff as I can in the app, but it still does it.

anomoly reviewed v5.75 on Nov 24, 2009

I removed the context dialog last release (it came back after this update) and replaced the 'converter' with convertall.
Word wrap is still wanky. Words are cut at random points in the middle of the word.
Other than that the best nfo reader & then some.
I don't use winmerge, I use diffuse http://diffuse.sourceforge.net/

Hate this... after RJ has been installed on Win7 - the right click on my computer - management stop working...
ContextMenuHandler of RJ has broke the system functionality.

anomoly reviewed v5.72 on Oct 19, 2009

Context menu always worked. It's file associations that never have & still don't.

Very good editor. However, there are a couple of features that IMO put PSPad above this one:
- Color selector / Color Translator (PSPad has them, I couldn't find them in RJ TextEd)
- File comparison (in PSPad it's built-in whereas in RJ TextEd you have to use an external program, Winmerge)

If it wasn't for those two features, I'd probably use this one instead of PSPad.

I really like this editor. Another is Editra, OS, very nice as well.

Great editor. Keep up the good work. I'm glad to see a good freeware editor under active development.

I left the ini file as is but overwrote all else in the portable and it seems to keep it's settings. openssl could use an update I believe and for some reason my only gripe is the lack of full screen ability, not even a hotkey?

This is an amazing editor. There is also a portable version. It has a browser and a dual-pane file explorer built-in, skins, gui downloadable spell dictionaries for something like 50 languages, custom tool support, as well as multiple browser support.
Not as fast as akelpad for sure but it's really in it's own league.
Does way more than I could ever ask for. With all the dictionaries incl. the portable version runs 140MB's. And it's not that difficult to make it open a blank text, or other I suppose, document at every start.

I agree with frodo888. I also used PSPad for quite some time but got frustrated because it just seemed to go nowhere in development.

I love the fresh look and cool ideas for a basic text editor that is Free! I just wish it had a check mark to set a basic setting for newbies so that when I place it on someone's computer that is not very knowledgeable, I don't have try to make it just a simple editor of just txt documents. Even so, I am not completely successful at this yet as some settings were not available to modify in the last final.

I hope to try this one soon and look forward to the changes.

Please keep this up and I know you will be software of the year in no time, as no really good ultra modern plain text editor has been made that is anywhere as good in quite some time.

This is quite a nice editor, especially for being freeware. To the previous poster: The size is because of the language it is written in and all the dependencies it relies on. I don't foresee it ever decreasing in size. That said, I have no problem with its size.

Yeah, and it's almost 8Mb in size too. 3 stars until it gets under 2Mb. Programmers need to learn how to code.

Wow! I used PSPad for the most editing tasks but now I have a new favourite. RJ TextEd has an amazing functionality and usability and it's a real freeware, no ads or nags. Very powerfull application with good syntax highlighting support.
