This program contains malware. After installing it, I wasted several hours trying to remove the malware, finally only succeeding by doing a Windows system restore. The symptom of the malware is that you will get multiple explorer processes which will consume 100% of your CPU. Your cursor will go into a virtually continuous wait state.
Nice program, but... I changed (in \JovialNotepad\Settings.ini) these 2 parameters: form.size.width=650 form.size.height=400 but, no way! opens again in full screen! a bug? I missed something? and a suggestion: collect in the same file text copied to the clipboard thanks
I changed from the "hard" and heavy Libre Office to your software. It is light, quick and dirty and it does the job. Also, RTF is a good format to exchange documents. Definitely a thumbs up.
Excellent little text-editor. Downloaded and checked it out today. My only "criticism" is that it doesn't re-open with the previous window size and position. It opens in maximized format. It would be great if it would re-open in the same place and size as when I last used it. Apart from that a great little editor that I shall certainly be recommending to my friends.
Very Small footprint editor with the ability to keep Images and web URLS that are active. Save As uses the top line of your text or RTF file as a suggestion for the filename. Useful to me when writing PC REFERENCE files or Food Recipes to keep. Too many other features that make me love it. And did I mention Portable, too? Author is very responsive.
