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.

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

The link on MacUpdate downloads 2.0.2. The link on the developers site downloads 2.0.3.

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 :)

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.
