Very nice editor, but:
- I would appreciate possibility of support for different codepages (ISO, Windows CP...)
- I still can't find editor for Mac, which supports marking same text (words) in the opened file. For example if I mark some word, other same words in the document will be highlighted...

sublime text does your 2nd question (and a whole lot more via the incrdible number of plugins):

"Selecting a word will highlight other occurrences. This can be controlled with the match_selection setting".

@Vela, could you provide a link to where it says this is dead? It doesn't say anything to that effect at the Developer's site, i.e. http://kodapp.com/.

Is there a way to PERMAMENTLY change the font size in the viewer? Using the font menu only temporarily changes the text size until more is typed in.

Don't care for the jiggly text as one types, either.

Otherwise I would like this app as it has tabs -- rather than a side drawer.

It would be great to see this app developed further. I like the tab implementation, but I wish it followed the CMD+ convention like Chrome and Firefox to switch tabs. For instance, CMD+1 to go to the first tab, then CMD+5 to go to the fifth tab from the left. There are no preferences either, so you're stuck with what is given, which is fine for me because I love the colors chosen for the code. But the one thing that keeps me going back to Smultron/Fraise from all the other editors...a built-in preview of the code. In fact, a live update of the preview. It's such a time-saver.

Seems like development has slowed down. Not good for a pre 1.0 product

Doesn't replace TextWrangler, but looks very promising. I stole the window design (black) and the font from Kod to use it in my TextWrangler. ;)

What Kod lacks in features it makes up for in the huge array of languages it can syntax highlight. I write a lot of notes in markdown these days and the only other editor that handles that well is Textwrangler, which I sometimes find too irritating. I like to use Kod for quick edits because it's quite light.

This looks very promising and I like the Tron-like design. Anyway it is far from being a replacement for Smultron or TextWrangler.
It's missing things like preferences since I would like to change the colors. Also I miss the possibility to change the encoding and line endings, as well as a status bar or info where I can see the no. of lines, encoding, etc. Printing is missing, too.
But I must say it's a very positive thing that we might get another (hopefully) Mac-like editor.

This is an utter failure on my machine, PowerBook Pro 10.6.6. When I launch the program I get a pretty (but highly non-standard) window with a tab. After that:

* Can't open a file.
* Crashes when saving a new file.
* Doesn't recognize focus when Find dialog is front, with respect to Command-W.
* Tab selection by clicking doesn't work.
* Crashed three times in five minutes.

I'm not making this a review but what the heck is going on?

RE: "Sports a Chromium-like user interface where tabs can be torn off and moved between windows."
Wouldn't it be better to describe it as Safari-like, since I believe it had that feature before Chrome?

Good to see a new editor, looks promising.

Exactly, we like Safari before Chrome... :-)
