    I've been using Kate for quite awhile now. The Plasma 5 version is missing a plugin I really liked that allowed inserting a file at cursor location. Aside from that, I enjoy using Kate. I have a few plugins enabled (Document switcher, Documents, Project Plugin, Search and Replace and Terminal tool review). Search and Replace is an awesome tool in my opinion. I use Kate mostly for editing bash scripts, syntax, auto completion and folding works as expected. I an not a fan of some of the border options though such as Show text preview or Scrollbar mini map. You can also add definitions for file extensions per file type, in my case most of my bash scripts end with *.SlackBuild. Another feature I like is split views.

    Something's missing in "I really liked that allowed inserting a ... at cursor location."

    Got to fire that proof reader.... LOL.

    Should read "I really liked that allowed inserting a file at cursor location." Fix in my post above.
