"A text editor."

★ Winner of Best Text/Code Editor in 2017.


RJ TextEd is a feature rich, robust text and source code editor with support for Unicode, CSS, HTML and a variety of other formats. Aside from being a basic text editor, it is also a very powerful development tool, giving you the ability to create clean JavaScript, PHP, and ASP code.


With a file size of about 30 MB, this text editor is not as compact as one would expect, although it usually only takes a couple of minutes to download on a decent Internet connection. This utility can be installed on almost all versions of Windows, including ME, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Server 2008, and 7.


The RJ TextEd user interface is considerably more complicated than the standard text editor's, with a plethora of menus and button icons located along the top toolbar. In fact, there are 11 different menus accessible within the Main window – File, Edit, Search, View, Format, HTML, Convert, Environment, Tools, Windows, and Help. Although the visual setup is somewhat complex, it aids in the process of project management and organization significantly. The left navigational frame lists the various components of the project, while the larger right frame displays the files that you're editing.

If you're looking for a comprehensive source editor that is ideal for web developers, RJ TextEd is an ideal solution. With a basic interface that is easy to navigate, plenty of advanced features, and support for the majority of popular text/web development formats, this program is the application of choice for many web professionals.
