 gedit

Official text editor of the gnome desktop environment

http://www.gnome.org/projects/gedit/
Description:

Gedit is a text editor which supports most standard editor features, extending this basic functionality with other features not usually found in simple text editors. gedit is a graphical application which supports editing multiple text files in one window (known sometimes as tabs or mdi).

gedit fully supports international text through its use of the unicode utf-8 encoding in edited files. its core feature set includes syntax highlighting of source code, auto indentation and printing and print preview support.

gedit is also extensible through its plugin system, which currently includes support for spell checking, comparing files, viewing cvs changelogs, and adjusting indentation levels.

3 With built-in spell checker, it's a little above your average default text editor, but not by much. Gedit has trouble with slightly large (e.g. 2.7 MB) text files and has no macro making or line length reformatting. Sort and capitalization change can be added via plug-ins (the Sort plugin has a very neat 'remove duplicates' feature) once you learn about the plugins, that is. But, by that time you are probably already searching for a more powerful text editor -- one which is more befitting the tweak-everything Linux world. ;-)

4 As a generic tool for dealing with miscellaneous programming languages, it is very nice, but less powerful than Kate. However, for TeX, TeXStudio is better; for R, RStudio is better. Besides, the “Replace” dialogue missing the “Regex” option makes you blindly guess what “\\” will be treated like. A basic tool, nothing more, but for simple text files that will do.

3 Spent a lot of time searching for plugins to get working all features I needed. Besides it took a while, I did not find all of it. Also movement between words (Ctrl+left/right) worked in a different manner than I am used to.

4 Liked it before, but I've switched to Geany now due to some Gedit plugins being broken. LM15 Cinnamon.
