I have to agree that it seems strange to me that there are no standalone text editors that can edit and store ascii files on the SD card. It seems so obvious for a device with a qwerty keyboard. I remember when there were a multitude of text editors for MSDOS machines. Some of them were quite compact and had a nice complement of features: multi-level undo, regular expression search and replace, etc. I think there would be a market for a solid text editor for the BB. It could be used to create documents offline that could be sent as email attachments, or to work on drafts of important emails, that could be copied and pasted into an actual mail later. Some of us have large text files that we need to access and occasionally edit (records, lists, etc). Build it, and people will buy it.
