This is meant solely as a suggestion, not a requirement.

Having said all this, you asked some interesting questions. The
"duplicate line" function is included by default with Textadept but
the code is contained on the wiki. I find there are some excellent and

Regarding fonts, if I understand correctly, if you want to use a
TrueType (.TTF) font, you must put a '!' character before its name,
just as others have suggested above. If you use a font in another
format, you *don't* put the '!' character before its name. In other
words, you can't leave off the '!' and hope that the font is not
antialiased. Instead you need to find a font you like the look of, in
another format. I honestly would have thought that ProFont would work
but I have no experience with Macs. I suggest you try the Terminus
font, which is available in both TrueType and non-TrueType formats.
The following page has some comments about the font from Mac users, so
perhaps it will be useful to you -
