No Manila file support as of now. This is more of a general purpose, all-device, fast loading text editor. I presume adding very much device/task specific functions will be pointless.

Saying that, I am presently working on a Notepad specifically designed for Diamond. Will think of such features in that project.

Lightbulb a BETA release for you

I am attaching a BETA release of the 1.3 version of this software. Kindly test it and check whether it suits your "open-with" needs.

In general, it should work easily with the explorer you are using. In case it does not, try to use the under-mentioned open-with command.

The "open with" command should be: "/Program Path/Notepad.exe" "%1"

Where 'Program Path' is the path of the program and '%1' is the file name. Make sure they are within "double-quotes".

Very nice and light txt editor!

Any plans to support .DOC and .DOCX? Even just as read only without formatting and ability to save as .TXT.

I have some settings and serials in Word docs that would be good just to copy out of without having to install Pocket Word

It's great to see people working on new editors!
Some things that would really make this program stand out...

The ability to associate files and open with a double click.

The ability to open files via 'Send to' in GSFinder+.

Multiple files opened in tabs with the ability to open new ones (while retaining the old ones, tabbed) with double click or 'Send To' or 'Open With'.

Search and Replace.

Choose Unicode or ANSI formatting for save.

If you implemented these few things, and kept it small, this could be the BEST compact editor for WM (IMHO).

UKNote almost does everything except 'Multiple tabbed docs', and 'Send To' which is the BEST way to open documents for editing in an editor that the MIME type isn't associated with. 'Open With' is just too slow.

The easier it is, and the more options you have to open a file in an editor, the better. Opening a file from my favorite file manager is my preferred method (double click, or 'send to').

Thanks for the Editor!
