It doesn't have functionality far in advance of other editors, but the interface is great. There are big, clear icons, themes, easy tabbed interface, and a really smooth options menu. If you think text editors are supposed to be functional rather than friendly, this might not be your cup of tea. Otherwise...

Nice. The best text compare Ive ever seen. And mainly because of the trim-left/right.

Hi all,

Yes, Great editor !!! BUT:

Although it says compatible with Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 version v18.2.1 is NOT compatible with (at least) Win XP SR3 (which I still use).

I wrote to support@texteditor.pro but no reply as yet.

Anybody has a cure ? a Work Arounfd ? (it may be some useless DLL, for example...)

TIA,

The "No VLC" and "Full" versions differ significantly in size:
"No VLC"- 27.0 MB (28,334,764 bytes) uncompressed
"Full"- 109 MB (115,235,866 bytes) uncompressed

Unless they have very specific needs, most 'portablists' should go with the "No VLC" version -- and get portable VLC if they need it...

Version 3.6.7 is now available.

I take the opportunity to comment further that I have now tried the program on several occasions, always with good results without reading instructions. Though its interface does look a little intimidating at first, it's not all that difficult.
In particular,
Tools > Fix common errors… : converted a non-working document to a perfect srt.
Synchronization > Adjust all times (show earlier/later)… : was most useful.

Version 3.6.10 available on 2022-11-21. Fixes missing dll file from v3.6.9.

Used it to fix the auto subtitles youtube creates.

@billon

I haven`t renamed anything.

billon on 2019-03-05 23:40

@hamasaki:

On my side:
FontViewOK_p.exe - FontViewOK.ini in the program's folder
FontViewOK.exe - FontViewOK.ini in APPDATA
Something wrong on your side

hamasaki on 2019-03-07 22:06

@billon

I don`t think so. I download the zip, run FontViewOK_x64_p.exe (from a folder called FontViewOK) and the data gets stored in the AppData folder initially. No big deal, once I moved the ini file it`s been fine.

I will attempt to post on application website but ...
"Always start minimized (To Tray)" option does not work.

I have not seen changes occur to the configuration file (AutoHideDesktopIcons.ini) for this setting.

I will also ask about command line option to start minimized.

donald on 2011-09-22 00:45

Please note the immediate response of the developer.

This is a very nice and handy piece of software from a very prolific developer.

I have only seen first rate software from this developer.

freakazoid on 2013-12-02 00:03

Neat little app. Uses around 1.0 - 1.5MB RAM. GUI is a little ugly like all SoftwareOK apps, but you'll probably want to start this in the system tray and forget it! :)

64bit available on download page, see https://foobar.hyv.fi/2.0/?sort=modified&dir=r for 64bit components. 32bit will not work.

Ennovy on 2023-04-26 16:12

@PAFuser: added the 64bit downloadlink, thanks.

freakazoid on 2023-06-10 00:59

PSA: For older users, use the 32-bit version of v2.0 for now.

v1.6 was 32-bit only and v2.0 has a 64-bit version. I upgraded to the 64-bit version of v2.0 and found that most of my custom components stopped working because the component does not have a 64-bit version yet.

Easiest way to get everything working again is to use the 32-bit version of v2.0 until all your favorite components have a 64-bit version.
