@lintalist Yes, in the json files. It doesn`t matter, I`m not going to use this editor, it`s a big step backwards from SynWrite. I tried, but I just don`t like CudaText at all. lol.

To hide folding column, call "Plugins / Options Editor" and find there in DIALOG option "gutter_fold", and change it.

Updated the entry to reflect since v2.10.1 support for Vista has been dropped. Check earlier versions if you need Vista support, and v2.9.4 if for some reason you require XP support.

MadEdit has several «killer» features not to be seen in any other single text editor.
• True CP437 is available: which makes MadEdit ideal for printing files created from the WordStar-like VDE editor. CP437 allows use of box draw characters. If the resulting CP437 file is copied and pasted over to Notepad, then saved as UTF-8 (ideally with _UTF8.txt suffixed to the original file name), the result is available to everybody.
• MadEdit allows ending each line with hard returns. That means that a UTF8.txt file as eMail attachment becomes a click-on with exactly the line length of the original.
• MadEdit’s print preview is superb.
• Print with desired dial-up line spacing. Lucida Console for example with 115% line spacing actually looks good.
• Install e.g. CutePDF and create economically sized PDFs from MadEdit. What you see in print preview is what the PDF will look like.

Sincerely, Roger

Seeing the icon I thought 'bəʊɡɪ bəəs' is back ;)

Cannot confirm the stealth-entry: I use MadEdit for years now and never encountered this behavior. Nothing launches upon clicking options. It's completely stealth :-)

I cannot find an .exe file to download. What I get is a .torrent file which universal extractor does not recognize.

Checker on 2014-08-16 00:21

@ jgermann: Scroll down to the bottom of the download page and use one of the mirror downloads (e.g. USA Klick on "HTTP".

According to the website, Portable Python is no longer being developed. It would seem that WinPython ( is its successor.
