    I am seeking a Multi-tab Text Editor, where you can have many tabs for different text, yet it saves the whole lot into a single file.

    Currently using KeyNote which does it, but seeking something better as KeyNote is buggy and driving me nuts with certain functions.

    Any other FREEWARE text editor which supports multi-tab and saves all tabs into a single file?

    Cheers:)

    Well, you got Notepad++, which works with tabs, but it won't save all tabs in a single file that I know of.

    I might be wrong, though.

    Notepad++ cannot save all the tabs into a single file that's why I don't use Notepad++. Shame.

    What about a text editor that allows me to highlight words, change colour of words etc? Does any free text editor exist like that? Notepad++ won't allow me to change text to bold or different colour :thumbd:

    Even though they are separate files, when you open Notepad++, all your files are open, until you close one of them.

    You can specify if a given Evernote notebook syncs to the Internet or is local.

    I found a great application that does everything I need..including right clicking on words to highlight, make bold, change colours etc, and it even opens multiple text files giving the impression of multiple tab files.

    It's called PolyEdit. Highly recommended, love it. :thumb:

    Even if PolyEdit is a word processor, it doesn't bother me because it's very light and very fast, exactly like Notepad. :thumb: But it comes with all the extra goodies like right clicking on words to highlight, make bold, change colour etc.

    And did you notice that PolyEdit is shown on that link that YOU gave? :)

    I gave you that Link to show you that PolyEdit is Word Processor.
    - PolyEdit is not a Text Editor.
    - PolyEdit is not a Programming Editor.

    I'm sure everything is Clear enough by now.

    I found an interesting multi-tab text editor. It allows bolding and a few more stuff.

    It has a ribbon UI. I ran a bit, and not that bad. It does not allow printing, though.

    I don't know if I got the latest release. I'll have to check. But, I'll send an e-mail to the author asking him to provide the printing functionality and will offer to translate it to my language. Printing is more than needed in a text editor, though. :argh:

    This little app seems to have potential. What do you think?

    -edit-

    I missed the link by MrPC before. The Windows Club link mentions it as well. I saw it mentioned here, though -http://www.askvg.com/fluentnotepad-simple-notepad-for-windows-with-office-2010-ribbons-ui/
