Text Edit Plus

(10)

Tex-Edit Plus is a scriptable, ASCII text editor that fills the gap between a Apple's bare-bones TextEdit and a full-featured word processor. It's fast, efficient, and has a clean, uncluttered interface.

"Great reliable full featured editor"

What do you like best?

I like that the editor is very light and doesn't consume a lot of resources. Additionally it is really easy to use from the get-go. There is no configuration required out of the box which means there is no learning curve. I prefer this over a typical vim editor as it allows one to bold and underline and do other basic editing tasks

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately it doesn't sync with the cloud. For anyone looking for anything more full-featured like tables and tabs and excel integration, you won't find it here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep your eyes and ears open. Often times we will only consider the incumbents. They are a worthy competitor to notepad and Microsoft word with a great price to boot!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Essentially note taking is a breeze with this tool. I will use this tool to collect my thoughts. It doesn't crash like word does so this is the most reliable text editor that I use.

What do you like best?

Excelente aplicación que cumple todas mis expectativas generales en un editor de texto, confiable eficaz y lo mas importante de todo super sencillo de usar y configurar de acuerdo a las necesidades del equipo y proyecto.

What do you dislike?

Pudiera ser mucho mas robusto y escalar a un IDE completo, esta orientado a un uso general y por lo tanto carece de muchas herramientas mas especificas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Se lo recomiendo si quieren un editor sencillo pero a la vez muy potente y confiable en general.

Lo uso como editor de texto plano en general y para corregir errores de ultimo momento en mi codigo fuente.

"Great Alternative to MS Word for Most"

What do you like best?

Text Edit plus has exactly all the features I need, and nothing more. It expands slightly on the OS X default Text Edit standard, but doesn't come with the price tag of Microsoft Word. Text Edit Plus loads quickly, has all of my basic formatting options, and maintains a very clean UI.

What do you dislike?

Working with scripts in Text Edit Plus requires a little getting used to as far as what commands Text Edit will understand and implement, but once you adjust to what you can and cannot do with scripts the program is easy to use quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you find that you aren't using the more complicated features in MS Word or Pages, but Text Edit standard is too simple for your needs, try using Text Edit Plus to fill in the gap in the middle of those pieces of software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Text Edit Plus saved us money because we did not need the full feature set of MS Word, and now we don't have to worry about paying for MS Office upgrades or subscriptions.

The website of TextEdit Plus needs to be designed better. Low quality graphics with the interface of the software is also needs to be improved. TextEdit Plus only supports OSx which is not that acceptable nowadays.

TextEdit Plus is pretty satisfying as a text editor. It has a simple interface, it's lightweight and non-distracting. I feel more productive when I'm using TextEdit Plus.
