I used to use It's All Text!, but it suddenly stopped working after a recent update so I tried Texto and I have to say that I am impressed. I really like how it greys out the textarea when you are editing it. I would often get into situations with It's All Text! where I would forget I had an editor open and type into the textarea instead and then loose my work from the editor or vice versa.


My only complaints are 1) that the button for launching the editor obscures the textarea and 2) so far as I can tell there is no key sequence that I can use instead of the button.


Not polling the temp file for changes is fine with me since it looks like it updates if I just click on the browser.


Overall, extremely useful! Thanks!

Hard to use with jEdit:
1. It deletes the temp file just after invoking the editor, expecting that it will be re-created. jEdit (and UltraEdit) notices this and ask whether to keep the buffer.
2. jEdit typically reuses a single process (I think UltraEdit does this too). Apparently Texto waits for the process to exit, which won't happen in this case. A work-around is to click on the button again and dismiss the warning.

Apparently "It's All Text!" monitors the temp file, which works better.

Even with "console" vim! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this addon since its early 'mozex-testo' days. Quite simply, this extension just rocks.

But what's this gvim business? I use

Default Editor: /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator
Default Arguments: -geometry 100x30 -e /usr/bin/vim "+set syntax=Wikipedia" %t

as I mostly edit wikipedia pages.

Thanks again, oh great hopson...

Works great for me in Win7 with gVim.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.1).

Did not work for me on Win7, at all. I configured PSPad. Icons shows up, nothing happens.
