This is a really frustrating editor to work with. Having the settings in json files is really not good. And how can I disable code folding? I keep thinking I`ve switched it off, only for it to come back on again.

What is good is that CudaText has text/raw/hex viewer - from the Universal Viewer app. For files which cannot be edited [huge files]. It can viewer, like Universal Viewer, files of any size, e.g. 4Gb. But not edit, only view.

(from author of CudaText) I'm making CudaText instead of SynWrite for these reasons:
1) I made editor part from scratch, only added to it EControl parser from 3rd party, but editor core is totally new, from scratch. I can optimize or change it like i want. It is cool. E.g. in 2017 summer I made huge optimizations for huge log files (300Mb+) and editor is fast here. I can change what i want in the core. In Synwrite I cannot do it: core is not mine, only my small tweaks. It was not good, not fast, not changable. 2) New app is Win32/Linux/macOS, CudaText is cross platform. Cool too. It can replace Sublime for some users. Not only Win32 users.

I`m not sure why the developer is pushing CudaText in favour of SynWrite, which I assume he intends to phase out? SynWrite is much better imo.

A good submission, thanks. CudaText is from the developer of SynWrite.
