The software Author has stated that the original SavageEd will no longer be developed, but that SavageEd2 will.

Crashes whenever I try to open a file, either through the File menu, or via the Ctrl-O keyboard shortcut. It does this on both of my PCs (XP Pro SP3).

5 spaces tabs? CRLF? no status bar?

sorry you lose.

It's quick, it's tiny, it's portable, it's assembler. This is enough for me to use it. If i need more features than notepad i use something with more features. most txt/ini files i just need to read. If i'm editing the file for any reason i use an editor. I personally hope very little more goes in this tool because it is perfect at what it does.

ps. timberland boots suck, they support hiking paths but not relative paths.

also they can leave a ton of registry entries all over your carpet.

I totally agree with all comments above. However, we look for a notepad replacement mainly because we look for more functions that notepad does not provide.

I have tried many notepad replacements and this one is near perfect. Two things but me. One is the NL to CRNL conversion already mentioned. The other is that the tab stop seems to be set at 5 spaces instead of 8. Otherwise great!

it has multi-undo operations. great notepad alternative.

And one of the best short documentation pieces I've ever seen. I love it when it is clear which files I need, and which ones have code or other stuff that I don't have to save (like skins, language files, etc.)

One little bad thing I noticed: If you save a file which had Unix-style linebreaks (SavageEd opens them fine, notepad.exe doesn't) they get converted to DOS/Windows-style linebreaks. Also I'm missing a status bar which shows current line/col-position. But despite that, it's a wonderful little tool!
