MetroTextual, the perfect substitute for the classic notebook

MetroTextual, the perfect substitute for the classic notebook

One of the basic tools that has always included is the famous Windows Notepad. An application that has barely changed since its inception and it simply allows us to work with plain text files quickly and easily. But what if, we’re taking advantage of the first year, we renew the small editor and change it to a more apparent, without losing the simplicity that characterizes it?

MetroTextual is a great app that can replace Windows Classic. For starters, mega and only weighs half, despite using the interface or a Metro-inspired-it is not a Windows 8, which enables us to use earlier versions of the system. The first thing to note is that this is the perfect replacement notebook, not for its functionality but for its minimalism.

The editor adds several improvements to notepad, but never tries to be an advanced editor, except perhaps for its text highlighting feature, which allows us to work more comfortable with different languages.

We can use up to a total of 10 different patterns highlighted, for the following programming languages or syntax:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Assembly
  • C #
  • VBScript
  • Python
  • Postgre SQL
  • XML
  • Transact SQL

Of course we can also choose not to highlight anything using it as an attractive, minimalist text editor. Regarding additional options, you can configure certain aspects of the interface such as the edge of the window or the tone of it, if we choose to always enima, an option that I found extremely useful when we want to always have the editor hand, or switch between different types of text encoding and customize the font size.

The latest version of the December 27, 2012, is compatible with the latest versions of Windows: Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, and only need Microsoft. NET Framework 4 or higher to run, some libraries may already have istaladas in our system and are a must for running Windows applications.
