Jovial notepad works perfectly with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Jarte also does but Jovial is exceptionally low on resource usage and with Firefox having routine psychological fits, that is important to me.
It's very promising and should be sufficient for casual users but for me it miss some features to become my default text editor : - No "Favorites Files" feature : ability to manage a list of fav files and quick access to files often used. - No "Auto-text" feature : save a string and insert it later by pressing a keyboard shortcut. - No "Recent files" list. last opened files. - Plus some minor features like : Always on top, Transparent mode, Tabulation using spaces + tab size ... But there's things i really liked : Extensions, Bookmarks, Symbols Menu Good work anyway !
NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING A "NOTEPAD REPLACEMENT" !!! This doesn't have even BASIC capabilities that ANY modern text editor has! (Ver. 1.7) Doesn't have SEARCH AND REPLACE. No WORD WRAP setting. No SETTINGS option. (You can change Font and Color.) Seriously ... ???
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
