Yay, it's back! NOTE: Tincta is just a raw TEXT EDITOR. It doesn't do fonts, formatting or any other elegant writing features. It's just text editing, great for coding or anything else that's just text. NOTE: The description of the app has expanded. View the App Store listing for details. Here's the current description as a text stream: - - "Tincta is an elegant ONE-WINDOW TEXT EDITOR. It is intuitive to use for personal tasks like writing blog posts or mails. But it also has all functionality you need for professional web designing and programming. Tincta comes with SYNTAX COLOR PROFILES FOR OVER 60 LANGUAGES as well as reliable LINE NUMBERING. We know it's the little details that makes you love a text editor. So Tincta: • supports full drag and drop • indents selected text when you press tab • knows when an open file was changed by another application • features block selection • allows in-window live search with highlighting And of course Tincta has all the text editing essentials like: • vast text encodings support • live search and replace with highlighting • change case • show invisible characters • page guide • printing • spell checker • convert line endings • convert tabs/spaces

For anyone new, please note that Tincta has now gone Open-Source ! This is great news as it means the easy-to-use text editor will now receive updates whenever someone contributes to the project. Most of the comments in this thread are very old from the time when this app was privately developed. So, go ahead and try it out !

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.
