The user interface is per default in English. If you change it in the configuration dialog to German, you can change it later in the main menu ("Extras" > "Sprache / Language").

You must extract the whole RAR archive, the "language" directory too. :wink:

Thanks but I know how to extract an archive.

I've just visited the download link again and it seems to have been updated, as it now reports as being 593 KB, and my archive is 548 KB. The 593 KB archive includes the language directory.

This is really a very nice program that I can fullheartedly recommend! Have I overseen it, or is it mentioned somewhere that it can handle multiple documents in tabs?

I am using it as default editor with (portable) WinSCP, where the tab-feature saves valuable space on my taskbar when editing several configuration files at the same time.

Cheers
Chris (who doesn't mind the German interface ;-) )

No, it isn't mentioned in the help file. You can see it only in the screen shot.
