Software: Sublime Text – Free Trial
Sublime Text describes itself as “the text editor you’ll fall in love with”. Although I have not yet fallen in love with it and remain faithful to Notepad++ (less pretty but more familiar), I must admit it is indeed a nice tool which offers interesting built-in features. The license is a bit costly ($59 USD) but they offer a free trial version with occasional pop-up reminders, a bit like WinRar. Sublime Text is available for Mac, PC and Linux.
