Yes - I would be interested in using it - I like using my A1200 for a bit of creative writing - I like the noise the keyboard makes ok?

I was after Golded but cant find the Amiga version anywhere...

Yeah new Programs are always welcome

@flipper Guess you never had a look at my FTP. There you'll find what you search for.

hello, it will be greatly appreciated if you could do it open source, you could also get a helping hand from amateur coders

suggestions, tabs, split windows.

Nice to know people are interested wont be doing it open source yet as it is a complete rewrite at the minute but when version one is ready will be making it open source

reason for this is when i first started this i`d never used E so this is really my first project - it was maybe a bit ambitious to start with would to see it working from my own code just so i can say i did that

@thallion will look at your ftp site as soon as i figure out how to become a member (new to a lot of internet stuff)

p.s. could someone move this thread i put it in the tutorials by mistake

Cool one flipper, looking forward!
Don't forget the ROT13 encryption. It's a must have!

not a problem gave me idea of no screen mode for arrexx scripts so that it can be used as a tool as well as an editor will look into this - would other encryption routines be wanted as maybe plug ins could probably adapt the
libtommath and encrypt librarys for pc if needed

not got any screen shots yet but will have soon - is coloured text a must??? currently looks like multiview all features will be in menus and hotkeys but floating/dockable fully user configurable button bank will be added also thinking of hex mode any takers

Personally, I've (would) never ever used it for real. When I have to write something down, all I want it to show normal black fonts on an whiter background, that's all.
