I’ve been using E text editor for some time now, and I really like it for basic coding. But one thing that I really would like is an autocomplete function. Like if I type <p> it would be nice to have it auto complete the </p> just to save some time. I know Dreamweaver has this function built in. Does anyone know of a way to modify E to accommodate for that or should I just graduate to a different editor, or just suck it up? :)November 24, 2009 at 2:29 pm #66996
I use e-text editor. But like Rob, I don’t use "auto-close" the tag… In fact, I’m not sure if it has it or not. I used to use Dreamweaver (code view only of course) and I’m never going back.
In fact, I want to use Coda, but they’re never releasing on Windows… I was thinking of switching over to mac, literally just for Coda. I didn’t buy CS5, like most people, I buy every other. But, I was thinking that if I were to have a Mac, I would buy ONLY Photoshop CS5 for Mac, then buy Coda, and forget the rest of the design suite. I don’t use InDesign, I dont use Dreamweaver anymore, I open Illustrator twice a year, and I dont need bridge and all that extra crap. And I use Flash twice a year, which my efforts result in nothing.November 27, 2009 at 11:46 pm #67147
I use E-Text Editor. I like it a lot.. better than Notepad++. It has better code coloring, in my opinion, and the snippets and autocomplete options are great. Not to mention Bundles… you can always add more.
So… you want the <p> to autocomplete eh? I suggest you open the Bundle Editor (ctrl+shift+B) and skim down the HTML bundle (assuming you have it installed). Make a new snippet and call it "paragraph."
In the new snippet, delete everything in there and type this:Code:
At the bottom, you’ll see "Activation: Tab Trigger " and so on. In the box next to it, type "p" (or whatever trigger you want).
Now, in your .html file, all you have to do is type p, hit tab, and you have the opening and closing p tags and your cursor is sitting in the middle of them ready to go. Pretty awesome, no?
I suggest you check out bundles and you can start making your own. They really are quite handy.November 28, 2009 at 4:04 am #67148
Wow. That’s pretty impressive. It makes me think I’m under-utilizing my dreamweaver. I should probably look for some advanced DW tutorials.December 17, 2009 at 6:14 pm #68261

I prefer Notepad++ for most of my work.I recently heard of crimson editor but yet to try it.October 21, 2011 at 4:05 am #89410
in E-editor I wouldn’t like to press Ctrl+Space for autocompletion.
Is there a way, it popups on its own?October 21, 2011 at 4:22 am #89411
Thesame issue here…Thanks everyone for sharing..October 22, 2011 at 12:51 pm #89457
I started using Sublime Text 2 after I found E-editor to be lacking. I now use it on my Mac and PC. It has auto complete and also supports Textmate bundles.October 22, 2011 at 1:37 pm #89459
