The Text Editor
Opening the Text Editor
To open the Text Editor in a new project, start by adding a text-based file in the Files folder of the Project Bar. For more information, see project files.
Using the Text Editor
Using the Text Editor to edit long pieces of text/data in a project file is often a lot more convenient than trying to paste large amounts of text data in to events or in to Text objects.
The Text Editor provides a number of features including:
- Line numbering
- Syntax highlighting for a range of formats
- Code folding (collapsing code sections)
- Find/replace/replace all, including with regular expressions
- New file templates for formats like HTML
