Note a lot of new functions in 6.3.1 (see changelog). Also, after using beta versions without manual updates, it is good to see the manual is up to date in 6.3.1

Is it stealth?

Was testing some Notepad alternatives the other night, and while TED Notepad is relatively small in size, it uses almost 4x the memory (hovering around 9MB). Just a FYI.

@outskirter: I had the same problem while testing the latest version (MS Sans Serif font isn't really ClearType friendly); solved with ResHack by finding all instances of 'MS Sans Serif' and replacing them with 'MS Shell Dlg'...

I'm currently using TED Notepad 6.0.2 beta, and find it very fast, stable and powerful. I also don't miss the toolbars. Having learned the keyboard shortcuts for the functions I need (ignoring the functions I would likely never use), I'm quite comfortable with this app as my default editor. If I forget a shortcut, the main and context menus are always there. The absence of code folding and syntax highlighting means nothing to me, as I'm not a developer, and can easily write HTML without those features.

Using the so-called Text Filter feature, you can make TED Notepad open selected URLs, even if they aren't clickable, and that feature is also very useful for internet lookups of selected text.

So far I've only one complaint: TED's dialog boxes use a tiny font, which looks like MS Sans Serif Regular, and since my screen is high-res, sometimes the dialogs are nearly impossible to read. I had already changed the Windows dialog fonts in the registry to Tahoma Bold for visibility; it worked, and most apps comply with the new setting, but this one doesn't.

This v5.4.2 could be THE killer text editor, if it wasn't for the quirky and sometimes downright confusing interface options (aggravated by lack of customization for the zillion keyboard shortcuts TN supports) and the consistent refusal of the developer to even allow a toolbar -- sticking by his "chrome-less freeware text editor" meme. Nonetheless, well worth checking...

Although it claims on the website that it allows for multiple undo levels, both Unicode and ANSI versions of version 5.4.1 didn't allow it.

Despite this, still a great notepad replacement with tons of smart features.

There is a new version, 5.4.1. Released just today.. ;)
