Notepad++ is probably the best of the free/OSS editors; however, I don't know if it supports syntax highlighting for MIF. This may not matter to you, but it does make life easier when editing files. If you can spare a few dollars, TextPad is a good editor and does have syntax highlighting for

Notepad++ does not have syntax highlighting for MIF. It's hard to find user-created syntax highlighting for Notepad++ unless it's a very popular syntax. I don't imagine anyone has defined MIF in their spare time. I forgot to mention Subline Text (http://www.sublimetext.com/), a very popular

I like to use my cursor keys to scroll from table to table, and putting each table anchor in its own paragraph lets me do that. If they're all on the same line, pressing the up or down arrow once pops you to the beginning or end of all of the tables that are anchored in the same line. I do a lot

If you're talking about doing a find and replace across a .book with none of the .fm files open, my impression is that it iterates through the files as follows: - create .lck file - read file into memory - make changes - write to disk - delete .lck file I think that's one of those FM features

For the registers, we list all the table names as active links in a table upfront. But if I am simply scanning through the tables, I find it easier to use the cursor button than the mouse wheel. Your mileage may, of course, vary. There are also places where a brief paragraph introduces a set of
