Copying my maps cfg is no problem, trying to paste it in the program is.

not really... some are more powerful than others while Wordpad was specifically made for easy website creation... and notepad++ (the one Mike uses) is really based off of C++... so there is a diff... just sayin' ;)

Wordpad formats text and may end up causing bugs when editing cfgs. Wordpad also crashes when opening files that are too big. (Another pointless creation by Microsoft)

Notepad reads anything and leaves the text as simple text.

Notepad++ is AWESOME.

Anyway lets try and dedicate the posts to the editor itself?

I believe it would be helpful to have save feature, that keeps the scripts you want so that you can always come back to it and use it for other games and edit whenever...

That alone would be a big help... :)

Lemme tell you what you do arcones.

1. Right click on a space in a folder or on your desktop. Click "New" and "Text document". Name it whatever you like.
2. Click in the textbox in my editor. Press Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C.
3. Open the text document you created. Press Ctrl+V.
4. Finally press Ctrl+S and close.
