An efficient and straightforward text editor for Windows 8.1, that you can use to revise and adjust various elements in your programming files
Simply Text is a user-friendly and intuitive piece of software designed specifically for computers running Windows 8.1 as an operating system. Its main function is to assist you in editing existing source code files or creating new ones from scratch.

The utility is fairly simple to understand and work with, but it can only be installed from the Store. You can then launch it and start editing the files that you want, as Simply Text supports over sixty types of formats, being able to perform syntax highlighting on numerous source code files.

At the same time, the utility can successfully function as a regular text editor, enabling you to open and modify your TXT format files in an appealing environment, so even users who have no experience in programming, nor do they wish to learn, can still work with this tool.

Simply Text features basic editing functions, such as 'Cut', 'Copy', 'Undo' and 'Paste', but it also provides you with auto-completion support when writing code. It responds to the same hotkey, namely CTRL + Space, which causes a menu to appear and allows you to choose the option that fits your string of code.

When done, you can save your file to a variety of formats, for instance 'Ada', 'Assembly Source', 'Clojure', 'C#', 'CSS', 'HAML', 'Haskell', 'JavaScript', 'JSON', 'Objective C', 'Pascal, 'Perl', 'Rust', 'Scala', 'Scheme', 'Shell Script', 'SQL Script', 'TCL', 'TeX' and many others, so no matter what field you work in, you can get your tasks done with Simply Text.

To conclude, Simply Text for Windows 8.1 is an efficient and reliable utility functioning as a code file editor whose main purpose is to assist you in creating and revising programming files regardless of their format, with the utmost ease.
