NoWinED is a MUI-based TextEditor that can handle more files simultaneously,
using different "pages" for each file. The fact that it is impossible to find
a MUI TextEditor on Amiga powerfull enough to be used instead of
Notepad/Editpad and other editors does not have a reason. Moreover, switching
from one AmigaOS flavour to the other it is not always possible to use the
same editor due to incompatibilities. NoWinED has born to be a portable MUI
program, and in fact it exists for every Amiga flavour (OS3.9, OS4, MorphOS,
AROS). Sadly not all the features are present everywhere due to some minor
The name NoWinED comes from an alternative information science magazine that
never saw the light of the day: NOWindowsMagazine. Initially NoWinED was
supposed to enable me to save the articles for this magazine preformatted
for an eventual publication, even if with the development and the death of
NOWindowsMagazine this texteditor lost these features.

NoWinED is my first Amiga program, so do not expect too much :)
NoWinED offers:

- Handling of multiple files through tabs that can be managed via
"titleButtons", a list, and/or an useful context menu which you can open if
you click with right mouse button on right scroll titlebutton (this one
appears when it's necessary);
- Context menus;
- Search and replace module;
- Search into opened files module;
- File Drag & Drop: dragging one or more files on the NoWinED list
the files will be opened in new tabs, draggin a file on a page will open it
on the current page. Finally dragging more files on a tab will open the first
file in the current tab, and the others in new pages (AROS lacks Drag &
- Basic texteditor features (C&P, select all, Undo, Redo, etc...);
- Usage from keyboard supported;
- UTF support (you can load UTF files and export UTF with/without BOM or
- CR/LF/CR+LF support (you can load any kind of txt file and export text
with LF/CR/CR+LF);
- Wrapping process of your text at the column you want;
- Backup of all opened files (you can set time between a backup process and
another one);
- AutoSave of current file (you can set time between a autosave process and
another one);
- Graphic printout;
- Programmable Fn keys with indipendent profiles;
- Exists on all 4 Amiga flavours;

You find all MCC and 3th parts libraries into NoWinED archive. NoWinED try to
load these requirements if they are not installed into your system and if you
have not loaded old version of them into memory.

Of course MUI/Zune...

NoWinED uses AISS 4.4 images by Martin "Mason" Merz:


It is possible to execute NoWinEd also from shell, so you can specify
some configuration's parameters for it using templates.

The templates NoWinED uses here are the same parameters you can
use as tooltypes in icon of the program.

Here is an example of the necessary command to run it

:> work:software/NoWinED/

"work:software/NoWinED/" are only an example path, type yours
depending when did you install NoWinED.

Then add the name of the binary (NoWinED_OS3 is obviously the 68k version)

if you use NoWinED for AmigaOS 4.x you must type _OS4 suffix and
so on ...

And then adding "?" command, this finally show you the various templates
NoWinED support.

:> NoWinED_OS3 ?

If you type all right Shell will show you this one:


If you want more informations about these commands you simply add
another "?"

Here a quick list of the command

FILE: You can give me one or more file and I'll open each file
in a new page.
NOFXFONT: If you give me this template, I will not use the default
fixed font.
CREATEICON: You give me this template and I will create a wonderful
icon for your text.
HLIST: If you give me this template, I will hide my list in which
I show you all loaded files.
HTBAR: You can give me this and I show you how I can be an ugly
and sad editor without my wonderful Toolbar.
HINFOBAR: You can give me this and I show you how I can be a simply
and without any information for you about your texts.
CONVERTTAB: You can disable me this and I finally NoWinED will save
your tab chars into your texts without to convert them
into spaces.

Counting from version 0.78 on, NoWinED can print documents by utilizing the
font currently displayed on-screen, or by specifying a certain font.
NoWinED performs graphical printings and does not use any of the built-in
fonts a printer may contain.
In order to print with NoWinED, you'll need a printer that can handle

Unfortunately, due to the age of the Amiga / MorphOS printer device and
drivers, several bugs that didn't get fixed in the past may lead today to
produce unreliable results, i.e. prints, which do not appear on the sheet as
There is no way to work around this on the part of NoWinED because you are
responsible to choose the right boundaries and printer settings in general.
NoWinED utilizes your printer settings. In case these settings are invalid,
the printout will be messed up. It's that easy.

So please, before you blame NoWinED to be the reason for messed up prints,
have a look at your printer's preferences. There you'll find the reason for
messed up prints.

Some tips:
Define the textual boundaries identical to those of the graphical. This
reduces the chance that the printer driver gets confused.
In case you are using the very buggy PostScript printer driver of OS3:
Use always for the Printer preference program and for the PostScript
preference program the identical values for the page size and horizontal and
vertical resolution (DPI) and especially, the shading class (must be
"Color"), otherwise, the printout will be messed up - or you will be faced
with a Guru.
Set in the "Scaling Panel" "Centering" to "None" otherwise white graphics on a
white sheet will be rendered.

Q: Your program sucks on my AROS system! Why?
A: It's no my fault, but of who fix Zune bugs and implements into it MUI
compatibility, sorry but Zune is very bugged, so you can wait someone
to fix these issue or fix yourself on AROS...;

Q: NoWinED doesn't work very well with shortcut, why (AmigaOS3.x)?
A: MUI3.8 has a bug when a program uses context menu, in this case it doesn't
permitt to use shourtcuts when user with mouse pointer is on object which has
contextmenus. So NoWinED permitts to disable contextmenu from its prefs so user
can choose to use context menu or shortcuts;

Q: NoWinED freeze my system OS3.x when I use it as associated tool for *.XYZ file,
A: Seems workbench 3.x uses stack imposed by icon of project instead to use
coocky stack into NoWinED or stack imposed by NoWinED icon, so you have to
set your def icon with a proper stack on OS3.x.
