I agree. My 3 favorite apps are highly customizable.
EmEditor, Opera and Total Commander. Even WinRar has a plethora of switches to enable almost every option (all options?) from the line-command — w/o necessitating the GUI.

With AutoHotKey, Opera is the hardest to manipulate externally due to it’s custom non-windows based controls/gui. I believe when I get more proficient with the internals of EmEditor, it will be the easiest (due to it’s built-in scripting and exposure of most/all? of EE’s internal commands).

I was suprised at finding it at version 8 or 9… I used to test TextEditors on a regular basis as none fully fit my needs. I don’t recall what search terms eventually brought it to my attention, but it wasn’t easy to find.

Some of the ones I’ve tested:

One’s still installed, NotePad2, TED’s NotePad (tnp), Code Lobster and of course EmEditor 😉

NotePad2 and Ted’s Notepad are for quick edits, and to have a distinct icon in the taskbar. NP2 annoys me with the non-fading [disk save] icon. Whether there are changes to the file or not it is clickable all day long. According to Florian that is a “feature”.

Sorry for OT…
