Pros: Very pretty skins, alot of configurability.

Cons: 1. Some settings, such as font size and font selection, are offered in un-conventional forms. It would be more intuitive if standard WinAPI controls were used. 2. I *still* dislike the absence of tabs for multiple files at once.

Other Thoughts: When I previously in October 2012, I rejected it due to lack of tabs. Looking at it again, though I still miss the tabs, I otherwise like the program and am upgrading my rating to 4.

The program is *very* pretty, there are a number of skins that I really like, and configuring skins works quite nicely with the Configuration Editor. I will be using this from now as a conventional text-file editor/viewer.
