Hi! i think could be cool use Qt or gtk instead motif

Notice that NEdit is intrinsically a Motif editor. It isn't possible
to change that to qt, gtk or whatever.
This is different from console editors as vim or (x)emacs.
For an example of how to configure Motif to look better, see

Yeah, it could, esp. considering what I hear from KDE editors.
However NEdit is Motif through and through, so it won't happen.

It would amount to a rewrite, as was mentioned previously,
but some pieces could be salvaged.
First, most GNOME or GTK+ apps UI was designed by someone
who had no clue whatsoever about UI (by hackers, basically).
Just keeping the Nedit UI is valuable,
if creeping featurism can be kept under control, etc.
Second, the code to deal with the file is valuable. Most
people these days read their files in RAM, which is pathetic.
Personally, I do not care for the macro language, but some
might want to keep that, too.
BTW, failed the GTK+ rewrite, I'd settle tor an update to
OpenMotif 2.2. One less shared library...
I think that some things in NEdit could be improved with a
better widget set. So you can call that feature creep.
That's the thing NEdit does. What's pathetic about it?
Re: Macro Language
I wouldn't use an editor without one.
Re: Motif 2.2
NEdit is supposed to run with any Motif since 1.2. Motif 2.2
is buggy, not unsupported.
