Okay thank you. How do I put plain text on it lol. Sorry I'm trying to put games and strategy guides on my calculator for when I have down time at work

I sadly didn't try this text editor in particular, but I wonder if just taking a computer txt file then renaming it from readme.txt to readme.txt.tns would work? I know this is how Mviewer works with images, but I could be wrong about text.

That should work. Sadly, my nspire didn't want to cooperate with ntxt, constantly crashing when I tried to save/load a file.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Yes, that's exactly how it works.

Unfortunately, it wasn't very stable some time ago. But I didn't see or hear of any crashes with the latest about two versions.

aeTIos: also, make sure you're using an up to date version of Ndless (but if nTxt uses the facility to request a minimum Ndless revision, it should refuse to run if yours is too old, anyway) :)

nTxt tells you to update if your version of Ndless is too old ;)
But yeah, back when it didn't, that was the cause of most reported crashes. Even I as its developper sometimes ran into that problem...

Good to hear that the project keeps being improved.  :thumbsup: I have two suggestions:
  • Add a scroll bar.
  • Very hard (I think): synchonize the clipboard with the OS one's.

PS: Here's a translation of the readme.txt:
Spoiler For lisezmoi.txt:
nTxt - Éditeur de texte pour TI-Nspire
======================================

nTxt est un éditeur de texte pour les calculatrices de la série Nspire.
Il est compatible ndless3.1 r872 ou plus, pour TI-Nspire clickpad, touchpad et CX.

Avec association de fichier automatiquement ajoutée dans le ndless.cfg lors de la première exécution.

Contrôles :

Touches directionnelles      déplacer le curseur
Shift + touche directionnelle   sélectionner du texte
Esc/On            fermer le menu ou quitter
Menu/Doc         ouvrir le menu

Ctrl+S            enregistrer
Ctrl+O            ouvrir un fichier

Ctrl+C            copier
Ctrl+V            couper
Ctrl+A            tout sélectionner

Ctrl+F            chercher une occurence dans le fichier
Ctrl+G            chercher l'occurence suivante
Ctrl+Shift+G         chercher l'occurence précédente

Ctrl+7            aller tout en haut
Ctrl+1            aller tout en bas
Ctrl+9            remonter d'une page
Ctrl+3            descendre d'une page

Ctrl+gauche         aller en début de ligne
Ctrl+droite         aller en fin de ligne

Pour changer le mode de retour à la ligne (mode automatique en fin de ligne, ou bien défilement horizontal), choisir "Change Text Wrapping Mode" dans le menu.



Avertissement :

Je ne suis en aucun cas responsable des éventuels dégâts que ce programme pourrait infliger à votre calculatrice.

Thanks for the translation of the readme ;)

Very hard (I think): synchonize the clipboard with the OS one's.
I actually am working on this. It should be much easier than the features in the poll. I already know how to paste from the OS clipboard, figuring out how to copy to it is all that's left.

Just a small note: don't expect fast progress. I'm in the army right now, so I only have a bit more than one day at home per week.

Hope you spend a nice (:-\) and quick time in the army. No computers there? ???

Thanks. I hope it's quick, too ;)
No, computers aren't allowed and last week I wouldn't have had any time anyway. Maybe the rules get less strict after some weeks, we'll see.

One suggestion: integrate the file browser from Critor's applications (like mySpire, mViewer, etc.)
This should be very easy to do. :)

Christmas update!

Very hard (I think): synchonize the clipboard with the OS one's.
I looked for the functions in the OS and added this feature to nTxt  :)

Apart from that, I only made a small improvement to typing. The last change I had made to the input system had an annoying side-effect for selecting text which should be removed now.

Again an update, this time with the most requested feature in the poll: undo and redo. I was quite surprised that it took only about the same amount of development time as some "small" updates :)
Ctrl+Z = undo
Ctrl+Y = redo
I hope (and believe) that the new features are stable. As always, if you find a bug, please report it here. Also if you have ideas how to improve it, tell me.
