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.
Simple, lightweight, convenient, and has built in dark themes. I've heard it has it's problems but I haven't experienced any yet.
It doesn't show turkish txt files properly. Misses ç, ş, ğ, ü, ö, small i without dot (ı) and capital i with dot (İ)
A flexible text editor that helps with programming and editing of text files. This include highlight of text including Php, bash script, Java, Python, Lua and Html. Ease work with goto line number, seach and replace and insert date and time.
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.
Not even possible to open multiple windows, big step back from gedit
it needs improvements. not as functional as gedit.
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.
