Tex-Edit Plus! (not TextEdit)
Authored by: steresi on Dec 06, '06 02:21:30PM
I still use Tex-Edit Plus, even though the author doesn't seem to be improving it much anymore (new releases still continue to come out once in a while though).

The benefit to the program is that your files will never be locked into a proprietary file format--a problem if you hope your files will be readable in the not-to-distant future. It writes plain vanilla text files (which can be read on any platform if you convert the linefeeds to unix or PC), but it also stores font face and font style somehow, so I can add occasional headings or boldface to the short notes I write or records I keep. For instance, I keep all my password, login, billing, financial notes, recipes, and other lists of things in Tex-Edit documents in various folders.

I soured a little on the program after the author changed the way option-arrow moves around a long document to a nonstandard behavior.

Yay! Glad to hear there's still another fan out there. Although I have to use Word professionally, Tex-Edit Plus is my web-writing engine. Totally 'scriptable so it integrates with Transmit very nicely. Still free, too!

Tex-Edit gets my vote too. OK, I use TextWrangler for code. And for quick note taking, nothing beats Fishpad. Umm, any other Fishpad users out there?

I use Tex-Edit Plus too, for everything. Highly Applescriptable so all kinds of text conversions are possible. Text and window styles are infinitely adjustable.

Tex-Edit for me is a must-have Mac app.
