Is there a way to go back to a different text editor? All text would be ideal.
Nope. You're stuck in editor hell. Welcome.
But the good news is that (at least from what Michael said in that other thread) IPS will be releasing an update that should (in theory) result in a properly working editor. The bad news is that they're doing significant changes to the code base so I'm guessing we won't be seeing that for a long time...
I've pretty much stopped posting code on this site. Which means I'm spending more time in the Lounge than I should.
