SubEthaEdit overview

SubEthaEdit... Wouldn't it be great to edit the same document, live, in realtime, together with everyone in your group? With SubEthaEdit you can. The idea of collaborative editing has been researched for years, with notable results. But now for the first time it has been implemented in a way you actually want to use: While doing complex calculations under the hood to ensure correct behavior with mulitple users, to you SubEthaEdit is just as easy to use as a traditional text editor.

SubEthaEdit is a powerful and lean text editor. And it's the only collaborative one you can actually use. By combining the ease of Bonjour with the world's best text collaboration engine, it makes working together not only possible but even fun.

This new version5.1 is wonderful. Fully adapted to Mojave and very stable and fast. I will use it from now on as my favorite text editor. But here it isn't version 5.1 to download, it's version 5.0.2.

Doesn't remember (or have any way of setting) the default window position. I know it remembers window position and such for saved documents, but if i open up a new (untitled) document (in a completely new session), it spawns a window in the upper left part of the screen, where i would prefer it in a position of my choosing, or alternatively, as an option, absolutely centered. The point is, this stuff should (IMHO) be configurable.

This is the _best_ collaboration tool for either PC or Mac market. The collaboration aspect alone make it well worth the price, when working with groups of people, for me it is large groups of programmers, SEE makes it easy for me to collaborate with the Mac programmers and increases our overall efficiency. SEE is also a fantastic basic text and code editor, we especially enjoy the live-preview of HTML, and the ability to quickly run PHP scripts, making "quick tests" or "quick scripts" very easy and painless. Version 3 contains much better compatibility with networks, which make connecting to the outside world far easier.

Something is wrong with version three. To be more precise: it's footprint on system resources has increased tremendously; while editing it also frequently freezes for short intervals (a second or two). Version two works well for me.

The tabs are an awesome new addition. The only remaining issue I have with SubEthaEdit is no HEREDOC string syntax support. The funny thing was, when I opened a bug on their site about it, they closed it stating, "HEREDOC not supported", like it wasn't part of the language, e.g. PHP, perl, etc. HEREDOC strings look like this (example in php): $var =

I completely adore this program! I have but a few a feature requests: - Transparent windows!! - Ability to adopt collaborator's .see-styles for the specific document type you are working in. - Snapping to screen/window borders for the 'mini windows' (Bonjour, Internet).

I needed to do some collaborative editing with some other users and am very surprised that SubEthaEdit has no support for working with either an sftp or webdav server. Seems that SubEthaEdit is "collaborative" only when you are working on a local document and the other user can actually reach your machine (which won't happen behind most corporate firewalls). This potentially useful tool has boxed itself into a small environment. Please add support for working with documents stored on a server using sftp or webdav.

I'm very disappointed that they removed the non-profit licensing option. I understand why they are doing this, but I just can't bring myself to buy a license when there are other good, free alternatives like TextWrangler. If you don't need SubEthaEdit's collaborative features, I suggest you give TextWrangler a try.

PAY ATTENTION, EVERYONE: from 2.3 on, the noncommercial licensing option is gone. Buying is now compulsory to use it past the evaluation stage.

People who complain that this app focuses too much on collaboration and not enough on features are disconcertingly myopic! In the toolbox of applications for writing text, SubEthaEdit is cream of the crop for what it does -- collaboration! There is NO other program on ANY platform, anywhere in the computing world today, that allows SubEthaEdit's type of collaboration! All others use some form of locking that is somewhere between annoying and destructive to the creative/collaborative process. Don't get me wrong, TextMate (raved about below) is great, I use it a lot. But to collaborate? NEVER! There's only ever been one program useful for that: SubEthaEdit! I have used SubEthaEdit with people across the table, and people across the world. I have used it for collaborating on prose, poetry and code. In terms of getting out of the way and letting a group of people work on a piece of text together, SubEthaEdit was revolutionary. And it remains alone in a category the Coding Monkeys single-handedly created. Wise people use a bevy of specialized tools for major construction projects. Only fools insist on employing their Swiss Army knives.

Well, this is a great editor, but it seems like the developers aren't very interested in adding necessary features, so it's definitely falling behind. I was willing to "wait" for some of the glaring omissions to be addressed, but here we are at 2.2 and TextMate is looking more and more attractive as the years go on and SubEthaEdit never gets basic features.

SubEthaEdit looks nice but it has some ugly drawbacks. First it cannot handle large files: SEE got ugly slow on my Dual G5 with 2GB RAM when trying to edit a 4.5MB (!) file with about 160.000 lines. Second: it shows a watermarks in the free edition (which also has wrong spelling in the German localization).

I've mostly switched to TextMate by now. It seems SEEs developers are more interested in the 'collaborative' part than in the 'editor' part, which is fine, but not what I'm looking for.
