Vim can do it, it's simple. Only question is that you have to count the number of lines to be copy-pasted.

Why is Sublime text in this poll as it's neither free nor open source?
If you you use it you must buy a licence.

I like Pluma the most but it's not in the Poll. Why not?

You didn't suggest it when nominations where being asked for, anyway isn't Pluma just a fork of gedit?

I did not know when nominations were asked so I missed the chance but I think it still deserved a place. Pluma is the default text editor in Linux Mint MATE -- it's a great app in its own right.

Perhaps LQ could email all users when the nominations are happening next time. I will give KKEdit a try. My seconds choice after Pluma would be a draw between Geany and Gedit.

They do you get a community bulletin saying that the nominations are open.

Ah yes, thanks. I just checked the 'Receive Community Bulletin Newsletters' box in my user options. Cheers.

Hi Jeremy.

I've already voted for Geany. Can I change my vote?

not entirely true.
you can use it with 100% functionality without a licence (at least it was like that about a year ago), you just get nag screens...
despite not being foss, i have a lot of admiration for sublime. it's a great piece of software and i see no reason to distrust the developer.

pluma is a fork (or rather, old version) of gedit.
