This is abandonware, no longer available from the developer. His only app at this time is Workabulary.

There is an annoying line down the middle of the page whenever I load a text document with Tinca. How do I remove that annoying line that is in middle of every page, running from middle top to bottom?

I'm sure Tincta is a wonderful editor, and all of that, but it's the first program I've ever encountered that required me to agree with the user's religion in order to use it. No thanks. There are enough code editors out there that I don't need to embrace your green religion to write code.

I'm very dissapointed that the programmers abandoned Snow Leopard and that they couldn't work out how to get this to work on Snow Leopard :(

When will this text editor work on Snow Leopard? Every single version has always crashed for me. I have never seen an App for Mac not being able to be fixed by the programmers like this before?

Would love to try this App, running Snow Leopard, unfortunately I ran the very latest hotfix, but it crashes as soon as it loads: Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Errors. I am hoping a fix is released in the near future.

After repairing errors (very quick response of developers) it works perfectly. It is simple and fast but has great potential. A small note: As someone points out a nice look - I suggest to hide the toolbar - the icons are a bit weird :)

I've been able to run version 2.0. The program closes immediately. (EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION (SIGILL). 1.3.1 version works without a problem. (Mac OS X 10.7.5)

"one-window text editor" The trend to all-in-one application programs, especially programmer's text editors, is one of the worst interface ideas in decades. It is an extremely poor use of precious screen real estate, especially for laptop users. It's like Windows 1.0 all over again.

Please don't take this the wrong way, because it's just how i am, but personally i can't even begin to use an application with icons (both the main application icon, and the toolbar etc icons) that IMHO (i.e. a personal preference) look less pretty than what i would expect from a modern OS X application. I'm sure some of you think the icons look awesome though. :) Just saying!

Nice app indeed. I use it instead of Fraise which was also good but quite often would not open a second file, when one is open. This one opens as many files as you wish. The only thing I would like to have is the possibility to save files in any directory, given in the Preferences. It always suggests to save in Home directory, and I always change it to Desktop. The Preferences do not have this option.

Dear developer, thank you for creating a very nice tool, that I can use to play around with HTML, CSS and another files around website coding. I love the simplicity, all the features are easy to access. Only thing I'd change are the purple icons inside the interface. I'd switch it to something more Mac like - it's 8 icons if I'm not mistaken. The main app icon is awesome though. Otherwise when Lion comes out, it will need some stability improvements (on DP4 it's quite unstable).

Beside the program, I like the icon. It looks a little like my girl friend. She would say, oh, I have lot of feet, lets go shopping!

Tincta is finally a useful alternative to Fraise/Smultron. It has about the same feature set. But Tincta is a lot faster, has a line numbering that really works (Smultron always had problems with that) and a more convenient search interface. And it seems to be in active development - there's even a built-in feedback form.

This little editor is really fast and with 0.98 syntax coloring is great. It does what it should do without being clumsy. For my daily scripting it is near perfect. Nice would be a menu to run your script. But after having the terminal open most of the time it is not a real downpoint. I'm looking forward for the 1.0 version!

Dear developer, this new version (0.96) keeps crashing, please fix this fast so I can use it again. One question at last: Will it be free when it is no beta anymore?

Looks promising! Keep up the good work. Still working with TextWrangler so far, but there are some great features missing: 1. Organize tags (like in Taco HTML Edit) 2. Highlighting the closing tag - same with { } if your cursor is before or after it ( {| ) This is VERY useful i.e. for long while loops or many brackets(?) 3. If you highlight a word the editor should highlight all equal words (tags, numbers, ...) which helps a lot if you want to replace a var or some text. 4. The option to choose the highligh color is necessary, because in syntax coloring it bites the syntax color sometimes.
