Hello,

I'm looking for a GUI-based, fast, lightweight text editor which allows for user-definable keyboard macros, date- and timestamp insertion, editing several files at once, search feature, adjustable font and font size.

What do I mean by "fast"?
It should be as fast as leafpad. Especially it should have a fast startup.

Does anyone know such an editor?

Thanks
daniel

I haven't tried leafpad, but I use nedit, which does pretty much everything you're asking for. If you want to try it, download the attachement. It requires lesstif from one of the pdaXrom feeds.
