Magic Text (Nokia 9300/9500) - Magic Text is a useful and convenient text editor for your Nokia Communicator. The main idea of Magic Text is to make text editing as handy as possible. Working with our text editor will save a lot of time and never disappoint you.
Magic Text has a great functionality that makes working with texts more convenient than before. It is the only text editor that can work with multiple files (windows) at the same time and easily switch between them. Magic Text is the fastest editor; for example, it takes only 7 seconds to load/save 300 KB file (up to five times faster than other programs). Magic Text supports multiple character sets - from old ASCII to Unicode and UTF7/UTF8 - so you can edit multilingual texts without any difficulties. Powerful search and replace engine allows you to perform delicate search and replace operations. Magic Text also supports clipboard operations, thus you can exchange text blocks with other applications, as well as with documents, opened in Magic Text.
With Magic Text you can edit not only a .txt files but any kind of plain text file, such as INI files, HTML pages, XML files, C++/C#/Java sources, Perl and PHP scripts, and so on. Magic Text will be a useful helper for programmers, HTML authors, writers and just for anyone who'd like to work with text. You can also use Magic Test for writing down your ideas, memories and even for diary.
Why plain text is good
When formatting is not essential and you don't need to include graphics, plain text files are a good bet for exchanging information. Plain text files have no formatting. There is no bold, italics, drop caps, or other fancy layouts. Plain text files are very portable. You can save almost any document as a plain text file and import it into other applications - even cross-platform from PC to Mac.
That's why we advise to work with plain text files and edit them with Magic Text, of course.

Switching opened files
You can have an unlimited number of files opened, however the total number is limited by the free memory size. To switch between opened files, simply select the necessary file from the rightmost menu position.
Magic Text remembers the current position when you're switching into another window, so you don't need to scroll the file again.
Supported file types
When installed, Magic Text changes some file associations to open text files in the editor. By default these are plain text files with the following extensions: c, cpp, css, diz, dtd, h, hpp, inf, ini, log, nfo, php, php3, php4, phtml, pl, pm, py, sql, txt, xhtml, xml, xsl, xslt.
However if you are an experienced user, you can change this list by yourself! Just open C:SystemDataMagicTextMagicText.ini file and edit it (with Magic Text, for example. To open the file in Magic Text, be sure to check "Show System folder" box in "Settings" - "Advanced"). It's the list of supported extensions. After editing, save the file and reboot the phone.
Please keep in mind, big text files need more free RAM. Although Magic Text supports unlimited file size, you won't be able to load large files if you don't have enough memory.
