  • a toolbar and status bar

  • automatic syntax highlighting

  • language-sensitive indenting

  • the ability to find and replace text

  • the ability to open from and save to files (the availability of this functionality depends on the plug-in you are using)

  • the ability to print the code

  • text completion when typing code
