Text editor
  14 reviews

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

Xed 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.

Xed is also extensible through its plugin system, which currently includes support for spell checking, comparing files, viewing CVS ChangeLogs, and adjusting indentation levels.

The UI has some significant drawbacks if you are using LinuxMint as a "TV" with a large HD screen. I have been unable to find a way to make the toolbar icons large enough when sitting 2 m from a 27" screen. In addition they have the developers have followed the modern monotone flat icon fetish which a) makes it even more difficult to distinguish the individual icons at this distance and b) really does not fit in with an xfce desktop with Tango icons. I have installed Mousepad instead which does allow toolbar icons to be resized and has easily distinguished colourful icons.

Some limitations, but overall I very much like the feel of the xed! Quick and fast, and integrates very nicely with the rest of Mint.

If ou make a modification to a file and hit close, it wil ask you if you want to save AND close, but it will only save. You have to close it

not bad but needs work, issues with larger files (>500kB), good for coding but I prefer Geany

I use Xfce. Just leave Mousepad alone! It's part of the reason I use Xfce. All the "X-apps" need to go!

Very stable editor - I think it is only going to get better with future releases.

Pretty lightweight editor, only is good for editing simple files. Due to lack of functionality like autocompletion, a few plugins absolutely not usable for any coding. Good replacement for notepad like editors.
