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!

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

You are wrong. Fault is with Macupdate!

The app is available for free in the App store.

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?

That is a page guide that (by default) shows the 80 character column which in many coding guidelines is the maximum line length. You can easily turn the page guide of in the Preferences.

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.

Your posting is nonsense and has nothing to do with the efficacy of the software. --

I evaluated Tincta and have not the slightest idea what you're babbling about.

My posting isn't nonsense, and the license is a very important part of a program. If you don't have any idea what I'm talking about, there are continuing ed. programs to help you with that.

Let me be clear about my comment. I look for user experience to see whether software is useful. So Mondele's original comment doesn't add value, just wastes bandwidth --

*LOL* I just downloaded Tincta to see the environmentalist statement of faith that I as a user have to agree to if I want to use this software. And indeed, they write:

Anyway to use Tincta you must agree to the End User License Agreement (EULA) beneath. This EULA also contains a paragraph which obliges you to do something to stop global warming or reduce pollution. It is up to you to decide what actions you will take; Mr. Fridge propose:
- replace a conventional light bulb with an energy efficient CFL-bulb
- go to work by bike (of course: bicycle not motor cycle)
- buy a new fridge
- or just put your computer to sleep when you leave for lunch

OK, I will today butcher one of my chickens to reduce CO2 greenhouse gas emissions. And to reduce waste I will fry the chicken in my green colored pan and will eat its delicious meat while wearing a green Robin Hood hoodie. This entitles me to use Tincta with a pure conscience.

Mother Gaia will love me!

This is not a religious request, so Mondele's response is indeed nonsense in that regard.
Free software should be free IMO, but any developer is free to set any fee or another requirement for an action in order to use the software. It's up to the user to make the decisions.

I wouldn't like this to be common place, even as I think every developer can do what they want.

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 :(

Really? 3 bad ratings for a free Application although the developer explained their move of abandoning SL? I use this editor since version 0.something and I have to say that it got better with every update.

@Tony2013. Three bad-star reviews in little more than a week because it doesn't do what dev already explained it couldn't do? And a free app at that? Grow up.

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.

I confirm that version 2.0.2 has stopped working again on Lion :( Version 2.0.1 works well and will stay with her.

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 :)
