The biggest problem I have with anything written in Java is the long
startup time. The editor may be great but the platform is mediocre.
I am a SciTE bigot. I have recently tried SPE and UliPad. UliPad would
be my second choice and is still installed, but SPE was quickly removed.
One feature I like about SciTE is being able to position the cursor
anywhere on a word and hit CTL-F to find the NEXT occurrence.
With UliPad, you have to select the entire word you want to search for,
and then when you hit CTL-F -- it first finds the same occurrence you
selected -- you have to hit F3 to find the next.
I think SciTE is better engineered. Still, much of your choice is
personal preference. I have noticed that any two people using the same
editor will use different keystroke and mouse sequences when presented
with similar editing problems.
Good discussion - I thank the originator of the thread.
