A few things I think would make TurboPad rize higher
above the crowd than it already is...

First, ask me to design a new icon for you ;)

Second, on to the features:
Being able to select a block of code, and perform the
following actions on it:
"Block Indent"
"Block Comment"
"Change Case"

Also, a BBCode template (one that will italicize [i]
tags, bold [b] tags, etc...) (you know...just for kicks
;) )

Better block collapsing; IE indent the tree so that it
isn't all one line... kind of like Win explorer...

a view that isn't restricted to full-screen, so you can
have 2 files visible at once; and a way to align those
windows...(in other words, an MDI)

An ASCII character map

More I can't think of...

Oh yeah, it needs to be able to make your coffee for
you too ;P

    Turbo Pad has support for block indent and unindent, block
    commenting and changing case already. Block commenting and
    changing case support can be found in the Format menu. Block
    indenting exists but I removed it from the menus a few
    versions ago. You can press tab when more than one line is
    selected to indent and Shift+Tab to unindent blocks of text.

    All of the folding is handled by Scintilla; indented folds
    would only be possible if it was included in Scintilla.
    Also, if you mean a highlighter for BBCode, this would also
    only be possible if supported by Scintilla.

    Turbo Pad had a MDI up until version 0.10 where I changed
    from a MDI to a tabbed interface. Instead of a MDI, in the
    future I will probably include an option to have multiple
    instances of Turbo Pad align themselves. This would mean
    that after opening one file in Turbo Pad, opening another
    instance of Turbo Pad would fill the other side of the
    screen so you could view files side by side.

    Do you want to design a new icon?

    Making coffee?? I probably won't implement it into Turbo
    Pad, but I'm sure Emacs has support for it...

    I had not a clue about the block indent...

    By BBCode I mean adding a template for it, that would bold
    any text between [b] tags, italicize text between [i] tags,
    etc; in a similar fashion to that of text between the pascal
    template's comments being turned blue.

    I'm already working on an icon ;)

    I was just kidding about cofee too, but it would be kinda
    cool :P

    Making text between [b] tags bold, etc. would require an
    entire highlighter (or lexer) and would have to be
    implemented in Scintilla.

    I knew you were kidding about the coffee. I'm assuming you
    are not familiar with Emacs?

    Emacs is a very feature rich (read "bloated") text editor
    which has just about every feature imaginable. It would be
    much more likely to include every feature you can think of
    (coffee making).
