Hi webmayo,

i got a try on it (RtfEditor-1.3 X11 version GLIBC-2.13) ...runs OOTB on Pemasu's Wheezy; as also the ubuntu-13.04 version (RtfEditor-1.32 - GLIBC-2.15) on Raring-3.9.9.2.

Both versions look great, as also very owesome to use.

Thanks a lot
Charlie

I couldn't get TED http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=80402 to work on Slacko 5.6, so I thought I'd give this one a try instead. I like what I see so far. I'm using the vanilla X11 version. Screen capture attached.

What licence? Is it open source? If so where is the code?

Charlie, as requested, all downloads are updated to 1.3.2

http://genscriber.com/genappsd/rtf-editor-85.html

The extra import/export formats require 'LibreOffice' and 'unoconv' to be installed.

Thank you, it's a very nice editor.

How does one find, or find-and-replace, text strings?

Thanks again,
Sheldon

In my version, I use CTRL+F or click on the 'Find/Replace' toolbar button.
Is that not available in the version you are using?

The icon is not on the toolbar by default in the currently available version 1.3.2. Your screenshot shows 1.4.1 ....

To enable Find/Replace:
Step 1) In menu bar click "Toolbar" and select "Search" to add the binocular icon
Step 2) Use Ctrl+F or click icon to start Find/Replace dialog.

The concept is a bit odd, but the editor is nice Wink

What is odd about it? I thought it was normal practice to allow enable/disable of toolbar buttons.
The CTRL+F works with or without the button. This is pretty much standard in all applications. (Your browser probably uses it).

It would be helpful if you could explain how it could be improved.
There a several toolbar options not enabled by default. If I enabled them all, then I guess people would complain about having too many.

Now it works.
Thanks again, gentlemen.

May I just say that in this version 1.3.2, the Ctrl-F does not work unless the toolbar button is enabled. And (this is not a problem), when closing a file, it asks whether to save the changes, even when none have been made)

I'm using Lucid Puppy 5.2.8.6

That's not my point. What I find odd is that many functions - even as basic as find/replace - are not available in the main menu. All standard applications I know follow this design principle: All functions must be present in the menu (which may contain submenus). Keyboard shortcuts may be provided and are visible at the right edge of the applicable menu item. A toolbar may be provided, containing a selection of functions of the main menu. The toolbar may be customizable, but while this is nice, I wouldn't regard this as "normal practice". This is where the luxury starts...

Find/replace (why call it "Search" in the toolbar?) belongs into the main menu. If it would be there, sheldonisaac wouldn't have had trouble to find it. Notice where other editors/word processors put it into the menu. You will notice a pretty much standardized pattern. Also Undo/Redo belongs into the menu ...well. actually everything.

No, it doesn't. Certainly one of the biggest oddities. But it's not a big deal. The application is great. I said that already, didn't I? Laughing

Ok, Yes I am using version 1.4. Lucky me.
I just checked version 1.3 and you are correct. Thing is, I have not used that version for a long time and I simply forgot, and yes, you are correct about the menus. I never got around to adding everything to the menus.

I do understand software design. This was just one of my in-house editors.
I released it in response to someone on a forum who wanted a simple rtf editor for Linux. I never expected it to be so popular.

Maybe one day I will finish it.

For some reason I feel obliged to explain how that came about...

When I was coding the toolmenu, it was just going to be a search. I use a var '_search', and popped the same name in the menu. Later when it was a Find/Replace I simply forgot to change the menu item name.

It is only called Search in the Toolbar menu item. If you role your mouse over the tool button, it should say "Find/Replace".
