You are here:

On startup of the 7th IDE at least two windows will open. The one with the toolbar is the editor.

If You are working with files that have the extension .7th a code beautifier handles the correct identation of the program lines and control words are highlited in magenta.

Of course You can edit any kind of text files. Unlike other editiors You are not forced to give an entered program or entered text a fliename at once, before closing the 7th editor. You get the last file You had created on re-entering the editor.
