It's a very underrated editor. I wanted to substitute Notepad++ with a text editor at least the same level of professionality and comfortability. It was hard but finally I've found RJ TextEd on the second page of the AlternativeTo website. From the top I've tried almost all the other editors but all those made me headache for some other reasons.

My minimum expectations were:

Dark theme support
Customizable shortcuts
Unicode support
Detailed settings panel (and not text based config files)
Syntax highlighting
Being lightweight (fast startup)

For me, onyl RJ TextEd passed all these.

I belive the previous comment's Access Violation problem ( from 2013 ) does not exist anymore or at least I've never experienced it.

I've been using RJ since 2018 and I've never been dissapointed by its performance.
It's not very resource demanding and
it has some amazing skills when it comes to setup and file projects management.
I think RJ is the best source editor in sight... Ah! and it's free!

I've used RJ texted off and on for years and apart from the odd bug, it's a superb editor for both from and back end web development. Has a million languages that can be used. Has good light and dark themes, Emmet, fast, there's nothing to dislike. I've tried tons of of html and code editors Inc Atom, Brackets, VS but I always go back to RJ.

Vista 64bit:RJ TextEd ptb cannot start: Access violation

2013-03-31: If I start RJ TextEd 8.11 portable on Vista 64bit, it does not start:
RJ TextEd Error mesage:
"Access violation ad address 017D0000. Write of address 017D0000."
RJ TextEd Error mesage: "Access violation ad address 017D0000. Write of address 017D0000."

Until 2 weeks ago RJ TextEd started without problems. In my eyes it was the best portable Text-Editor.
I hope the developers can fix this error in the next version. In the meantime I will use AkelPad, which has not the very experienced file-and folder-management, as RJ TextEd has.

If anybody has a solution against the problem (of this very good app), I would be happy to be informed about this. In this case please let me know about this in this comment-forum of RJ TextEd!
