Stick with one Editor

To many this may be obvious. But it’s amazing how many people use the editor that comes with each of their IDEs with the confusion that arises as a consequence of each editor supporting different “advanced” features and/or short cut keys etc.

The Embarcadero IDE editor is a good one. Having got to learn it “inside out” I now use it for all major program writing. For example when working with Freescale microcontroller C code I use the Embarcadero editor for all code creation and only use the Freescale “Codewarrior” IDE editor for quick fixes whilst in the debugger.
