Yeah, I was about to write that I couldn't find it!
Oh well, while looking for Essay, I found WriteRoom. It actually works! But there is some room for improvement... it would be nice if the search function worked like the "Find" command in NotePad (of Windows fame). In WriteRoom, the search function finds the file containing the text, but doesn't allow any upper/lower/ignore case options, and it doesn't hilite the occurrence of the text (and it seems some text that is present, couldn't be found). Hmmm, some work needs to be done on this one.
But it does import text files from the PC correctly. I guess I have to play around with it some and see how it goes. Someone who is a good programmer could make $$$ by creating a good text editor. Many of the programs I have taken a look at seem half finished, or rushed... much room for improvement (not the least of which is some help files -- that would be really nice for us folks that are somewhat challenged).
