Notepad TXT Editor is a basic text editor. You can use it for simple documents or notes - without any formatting, paragraph styles or tables.

- All your text is displayed in a single font you can select from a menu.
- Supports .TXT files created from Microsoft Windows in any character encodings.
- Lines and characters counts for both the entire document and selected region.

Enjoy the simplicity!

Great, Fast, Love it!

I was trying to find a really fast, plain text editor for simple "I need to write a quick note" kinds of things. I usually don't save them, so like an earlier reviewer, I would prefer that the app **NOT** ask me to save.

One thing that that would be awesome would be to be able to map the escape (ESC) button to close the app (like notepad2 for windows). So you open, type what you need, copy if you want, save if you want, then close with one key. It is a virtual scratchpad, so maybe it's a phone number, something from the web. I just need a place to put it for a little while. So it's ok to close without asking to save because there is rarely anything too imporant on the page (I'm certainly not using it to draft a novel).

Another common use case for me is when I have formatted text on the clipboard and I need to strip it (say I copied something off the web). Paste it in, recopy and done.

To the Developer - great app, please keep it simple. I would rather have no additional features than to have lots of junk added in. There are already plenty of "text editors" that try to do everything under the sun.

Keep it fast and bug free and you will create a following.


It's very nice

I don't know why I like it, but it's definitely better than TextEdit in ways difficult to put down. I wish there was an option to not ask to save when closing because that's the reason I was looking for another editor in the first place, the save dialogs are slow in mac os x, and I also second the request that someone else had to have an option to remove the word count at the bottom. If you're just looking to paste text, you know TextEdit has a plain text mode you can enable in the preferences. I still think this app is better however. I don't need any of that Rich Text stuff. I also tried ByWord which is nice if you like MarkDown, but for plain text, this app is it.

Open non .txt files

I love this app, actually I prefer it over TextEdit since iCloud integration, but it needs to be able to open any file like (.log .plist .html and so on) to be a complete replacement of TextEdit.

The feature that everyone is suggesting of disabling the “do you want to save…” dialog, i believe it should be an on/off toggle, some might need it.
