gedit, a rather sentimental pick for me, it was the first one I remember using way back when, still use it when I can, just because.

I voted for Geany which is useful for doing HTML pages, .desktop pages, and for editing the Openbox rc.xml . I sometimes use Leafpad for small text pages and Vi to edit pages in a terminal.

nano caused me once recently an unbootable box. It has issues with copy and paste in X with mate-terminal?

Geany is hard the beat for speed and capabilities, my 2nd choice is Vim, the Cli version of course a full feature text editor even on a barebones, no X system.

Question Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code would be another option in this poll.
https://code.visualstudio.com/
Like Atom editor , more responsive.

( Later I see it is included in IDE poll section. )

Vim / Neovim

Been using vi since 1986, started using vim with Linux late 1993 and am happy with both vim and (sometimes) gvim. But I will certainly give neovim a try

Elvis. I sometimes use gvim, but then immediately see why I love elvis. If elvis is not available, I'd go for gvim. Next up are plain good ol' vi then ex.
I hate the unintuitiveness of emacs
