> Dear Smalltalkers,
> I am very happy to announce that the Styled Text Editor for the brand new
> Cuis 4.0 is now available on GitHub [1]. The Styled Text Editor was first
> presented by me at last year's ESUG in Edinburgh [2]. Thanks to ESUG the
> presentation was recorded [3].
> The Styled Text Editor is a framework for rich text editing using styles
> as known from popular word processors like Apple Pages or Microsoft Word.
> It features paragraph and character styles, allowing easy text formatting
> using styles only. It is intended for applications where users need to work
> with good looking rich text in a simple and fast way.
> Rich text commonly refers to text with formatting information like
> different fonts, sizes, alignments, and emphasis. To make editing as simple
> as possible instead of individual formatting information end users apply
> styles to parts of the text. Editing is made fast by keyboard shortcuts for
> text navigation, selection, and styles selection. Where possible the feel
> of widely used rich text editors is supported.
> It includes many features like
> - numbered and bulleted list paragraph styles
> - support for images
> - multiple level undo and redo
> - text completion using various glossaries including a dictionary of
> English with about 166.000 words
> - RTF clipboard (on OS X VMs with the ClipboardExtendedPlugin)
> The Styled Text Editor is developed in Cuis with the plan to eventually
> port it to Squeak and Pharo. The development of the Styled Text Editor
> inspired many changes to Cuis itself, and It is the first package to use
> the brand new DVCS based development process for external packages for Cuis
> 4.0.
> The idea and funding was provided by me, Bernhard Pieber and my company
> Software Generation. The implementation was done by Juan Vuletich, the
> mastermind behind Cuis. Thanks Juan for the close cooperation. It was and
> still is great fun to work with you.
> We are looking forward to feedback from you. Fork it on GitHub [1], create
> issues and send us pull requests. ;-)
> Cheers,
> Bernhard Pieber
