About QuoEdit

QuoEdit is a plain text editor that runs on Mac OS 7.1 or later.

While editing text is based on traditional, Mac OS encoding (TEXT), QuoEdit is also familiar with Unicode (utxt).

QuoEdit supports AppleScript powerfully in the following levels.
Scriptable: full features (and more) of the application can be controlled by script.
Recordable: you can record, replay and save your jobs with/without the Script Editor (like keyboard macro).
Attachable: you can attach scripts to menus with various options by QuoEdit's Menu utility or AppleScript. (To the customizable menus, you can also attach text, tags and any files.)

QuoEdit supports regular expression (regex) search as well as ordinary search. As for the ways to search, ordinary search and batch find are supported.

Also, QuoEdit supports multiple levels of undo/redo, rectangular selection, sort, and so forth. The most operations (including dialogs) in QuoEdit are supported by keyboard. The text engine and the search engine are its original code.

Incidentally, my favorite feature is that you can let the Finder open or reveal the target file from file dialog, by holding down Option (+ Shift) key. ItŐs useful!

Shareware: You can purchase your license at online order page in the Kagi store. The cost is US$10. For the detail, please see contents of Shareware Info folder.



Basically, scripts are compiled in AppleScript 1.x.If an applet extracted by The Unarchiver does not launch (in Mac OS X), try extracting it by StuffIt Expander.
