User Reviews

  • Outstanding application, it does everything that I needed for it to do. I had issues with Notepad++ for some reason this time, so I downloaded this and it has the functionality that I want.

  • As a notepad++ user, Thought it was not possible to find another text editor as light and powerful... I was wrong, there's SynWrite. EDIT (NOV/2017): Still loving it, Wish there was a linux version.

  • Very good editor, flexible and powerful. I'm just signalling that my username "mlc" isn't more present in the forum user list and I can't advise about an issue in the recently introduced plugin "Brackets Hilite". No way to recover my subscription, no way to contact board administrator. Please, can you recover my account? TIA That's from the confirmation mail of my subscription: Welcome to SynWrite forums forums Please keep this e-mail for your records. Your account information is as follows: ---------------------------- Username: mlc

  • I was looking for a way to copy regex results, it did it in a very simplistic way. Love it! Thanks for sharing your awesome work!
