Very nice text editor. I have learned to keep it open. This is because I can save those files directly into Day One- I love that. One can save into other apps too. And I have also gotten fond of the files it creates-this thing is very nice, And I don't know how anyone can beat the price. A winner.

Das ist eine der besten Textverarbeitungsprogramme mit denen ich bisher gearbeitet habe. Sehr gut gefällt mir die erweiterte Suche aufgrund derer man komplexe wenn/dann Beziehungen abfragen und zum Ersetzen nutzen kann. Auch das Vergleichen von zwei Dateien ist sehr gut. Preis/ Leistung stimmen. Danke dem Entwicklungs Team

Meanwhile I use macOS High Sierra and therefore I udated to Smultron 10.1.6. It works like version 8 and 9, is fast and small and the developer always updates very fast if it is necessary. The new features are great, especially the dark mode. I use it beside textedit from Apple very often and really can recommend it...

I updated from version 7 of the AppStore and could only say that this editor is a real good alternative to BBEdit or TextEdit. It is fast, very easy to learn and has many features. And the update price of 7€ is very fair. I think I will use it from now on more often than TextEdit. And the support is great too. Fast and very helpful. Thank you!

This editor seriously lacks a good code folding mechanism. It's simply not enough to have to manually select every single paragraph of text and then apply the "text folding" menu command on top of that. Most code editors (even Brackets, BBEdit, and TextWrangler) have a much nicer mechanism for automatically identifying folding structures. In those, you simply click the little black triangle.

This editor does not provide a way to direct compilation errors to a special window where they can be clicked on to take you back to the offending line in the source. Without this feature, it's just eye candy in actual use.

I like Smultron 5. It's stable with a good array of features. The older versions of Smultron were more attractive in terms of ease of use. For example: 1/ Snippets should be insertable via unique keystroke combinations (built into the macro). 2/ Preview (HTML) does not appear to work in Safari (6.0.5). I get a blank tab. I have to copy and paste my code into Smultron 3.5.1 to preview.

A 10.8 requirement for a text editor both seem steep and is. I blame Apple though. They make it more awkward to support several OS X versions then need be.

Excellent editor for all kind of purposes. I use this mainly for php stuff. In the past free but well worth the small asking price.

Just so people don't get confused, the download link currently points to Smultron 4, not Smultron 5. Remember to take a moment to check which version you're looking at before buying.

Not digging the multiple windows interface. That was one of the things that was so nice about smultron back in the days, when single-window applications was something unheard of. I'm not going back. Well, while i'm at it, i never liked the in-application (toolbar, preference, etc) icons either. The main application icon is awesome though! Still, i wish smultron all the best! :)

Great editor. Was free in the past but the dev jumped the crAppStore for money. But in the end it is worth paying the small price tag.
