    Software Reviews and Critisims

      Perfect General-Purpose Text Editor

      This app is perfect for when you need something more fully-featured than TextEdit, but don't need a complicated project manager like Atom or similar. The major selling points for me are Unicode support (the ‘Inspect Character’ and ‘Input in Unicode Hex’ commands are extremely helpful, and greatly reduce the need for character escapes in your documents) and the fact that it plays well with proportional fonts (many text editors have bugs when you use a font that isn't monospace—not so with CotEditor!). If I had to list drawbacks, the syntax highlighting is not as fully-featured as you might find in something like Atom. But I've been using CotEditor for several months and never found it missing a feature that I needed for my work, and it is refreshing the extent to which things that one might need to download a plugin for in Atom or Brackets just come built right in.

      Extremely useful and valuable

      On the Windows, I found I needed "something" to convert then transfer straight text between different Windows apps and found that CotEditor does exactly that with ease. - As a general review for normal people's uses, it is a light weight, full featured editor. It covers all the bases with character substitution and can even do spell checking (if that is what you want). However, it is not a full featured word processor as CotEditor is not designed to be one, it is an editor.. - FWIW: I am an ancient unix system administrator and have used VI (text based editor) my entire life. This will not replace VI but I find I use it more and more for general note taking, quick scripts, etc in the Windows graphical enviroment. - CotEditor is great and there is a reason it has an extremely high score on the App Store.

      Simple Windows Text Editor That Works

      All I wanted was a low cost or free text editor that was simple and easy to use. This text editor does the trick. And, it easily lets me format and save Matlab (.m) and Python scripts (.py). I don't like having a million different space hogging apps on my computer. So, I'm glad I found this versatile program. I was particularly surprised at how expensive other text editors are (subscription services), which I was not interested in. If you an easy to use, simple, lightweight, inexpensive Text Editor app, this is the one.

      Love the app but updated too frequently to me

      So the title pretty much says it. I love this app and use it everyday to work on html for basic hobby websites. But I feel like a new update is sent out every week. I wish they would hold off and update maybe once a month. While I do appreciate the updates and the creators fixing issues or making things better the updates just seem to be really frequent. It's a personal opinion of mine and doesn't effect the app one way or another so I still give it 5 stars.

      I use it everyday

      I have been using it every day over a year for just about everything outside PHPStorm. You'll love it if you value syntax highlighting and themes – especially if you appreciate editor opacity. Other nice features include regex find/replace and split editing, the only feature that I would like to have would be a minimap, but I still give it 5 stars for being so reliable for nimble editing.
