OK - I am not a computing noob, but certainly a noob to Textadept.
Like others, I am attracted to Textadept by the ease of its
customisation, which surely rivals that of editors such as vi etc
(please, no flame war thankyou). However, having to copy and paste
text into files and sometimes, take into account the resulting order
of those lines, is a hassle. I recently found that a feature I wanted
just wanted working and, after some to-in and fro-ing, found that if I
rearranged the lines of a file a little, the feature when worked.

In summary then, as a user I don't care how it's done but I definitely
would like to see Textadept's customisation made easier and more
reliable. I say "I don't care how" but that doesn't mean I don't care
about Textadept itself. Of course I didn, otherwise I wouldn't be
bothering this group with every little function and feature that I
can't get to work. :P
