Lightweight Qt5 Plain-Text Editor for Linux

  • An optionally permanent search-bar with a different search entry for each tab;
  • Instant highlighting of found matches when searching;
  • A docked window for text replacement;
  • Support for showing line numbers and jumping to a specific line;
  • Automatic detection of text encoding as far as possible and optional saving with encoding;
  • Syntax highlighting for common programming languages;
  • Ability to open URLs with appropriate applications;
  • Session management;
  • Side-pane mode;
  • Auto-saving;
  • Spell checking with Hunspell;
  • Printing;
  • Text zooming;
  • Appropriate but non-interrupting prompts;
  • Haiku OS support (by [khallebal at GitHub](https://github.com/khallebal));
  • macOS support (by [Pavel Shlyak](https://github.com/shlyakpavel)); and
  • Other features that can be found in its settings, on its menus or when it is actually used.
