Text editor
  20 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.

Maybe even better than Gedit.

Excellent text editor for basic tasks, syntax highlighting works well, and it can natively work on remote files. Good stuff!

The navigation keyboard shortcuts are in the Documents menu. Alt+1 = 1st Document Alt+2 = 2nd Document Alt+3 = 3rd Document ... Alt+0 = 10th Document. Use the numbers across the top of the keyboard.

One step above original Microsoft Notepad because it has tabs. However, changing tabs cannot be done from the keyboard, as with every other tabbed application.

My go-to text editor, with all the features i need (including F10 Sort, for my to-do list) and various syntax highlighting (Markdown and HTML mostly), but none of the awkwardness and size of other, more complex text editors.

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.

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.
