User Reviews

  • I use the Jstar variant of JOE for just about all my writing. My fingers are hard-wired for WordStar keystrokes and JOE is about perfect. The only feature I would like to see added is soft (dynamic) carriage returns -- so text would flow for PDF or importing into word processors. Using the "flowed" option in the configuration file (then replacing space/carriage returns with spaces) is a pretty good workaround for this (at least for writing, not sure how well it would work for programming). Still I'll take Jstar with no "dynamic" carriage returns over anything else.

  • It was my preferable text editor under Linux. Wonder it is available for Windows too.

  • Easy, fast and small.
