Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good, but ...
Nice little text editor performs quite well, but I need something that's capable of simultaneously displaying multiple separate editing windows, and I can't find any way of making Tincta do that. You can open multiple documents, but only one at a time can be displayed in a single editing window. If it could do that, I would up my rating to four stars.
Excellent Text Editor
I'm very happy to have found this excellent and simple text editor for the Mac. I like to be able to copy and paste text as plain text, regardless of how it was originally formatted, so this tool lets me copy text into it and then copy it back out without the formatting. But more importantly, this is the text editor I use for all the programming that I can't do with larger IDEs. For example, I use this software for working with files written with the Ocaml language. It recognizes keywords for a variety of programming languages and provides simple indent and file management support. It's all that I need from a text editor for the vast majority of the uses, and that makes it great.
Also, the dock icon for this application is really cute. I like it.
Like it so far
I've been using Tincta for few days now and I like how it works, I never thought I'd say it… but since I started using the autosave feature in Lion, it now seems like it's missing and that is the case here. I also like the fact that you can hide the file icons from the "drawer/browser" on the side, but wish there was a way to shrink them even here in the free version. I use Tincta to work with Lua, HTML, and other coding… so far I had no problems with line number/gutter size, and because I don't open very large files (all files are below 10MB) I have no performance issues. Thinking about buying PRO.
