Simply Amazing

This application is really good. The software shows line number, and some of the short keys that I was using in Excel are exactly the same.
For example command+shift+down arrow select the rest of your document. The file I opened in excel was losing the time stamp on each line but in the textwrangler remained unchanged.
Thanks for creating such a wonderful text editor.

Best text editor

I’ve been using textWranggler for years… Can’t leave without it! The app is 5 starts, BUT it’s a shame you’ll guys dropped support to it!

The best editor

Could you please update the app to add latest MacOS support? The OS tells that the app is not optimised and is going to stop working in the further releases.
