Noto free download for Mac


Version 1.2

Simple general-purpose text editor.

Absolutely Free

Noto overview

Noto is a simple, pretty, and straightforward plain text editor for macOS.

With few but focused features, Noto is the ideal tool to maintain short notes, lists, and source code files without clutter.

Customize the appearance of the editor with your preferred colors; download themes, or create and share your own. Toggle different panels to customize the appearance of the editor, such as a line numbers bar, the toolbar, and an information bar that displays statistics about the document (characters, words, and lines count; document encoding).

Open and save documents using specific file encodings (especially useful to read and write files from/to older systems, for example).

Some of the other features include:
  • iCloud Drive support: Store your files on iCloud Drive and have them always with you.
  • File versioning support: Browse, copy, and restore previous versions of your file. Works out of the box on macOS, but works even better if you tore your files on iCloud Drive and/or if you have Time Machine enabled.
  • Distraction free mode: Work on full screen and see only your content. You can hide all non-essential panels to make most use of your screen space.
  • Multiple-selection indentation: Select several chunks of text by holding Command to increase and decrease the indentation. Useful for quickly fixing a piece of code.
  • Invisible characters rendering: Enable this feature to have Noto show hints of invisible characters in the text, so you can see those pesky whitespaces at the end of lines.
