Overall Satisfaction with CoffeeCup HTML Editor

Prior to using CoffeeCup as my primary HTML Editor, I used one that came with Cold Fusion (when CF was still an Allaire application), HomeSite. When that editor was discontinued, I search for, and found, CoffeeCup. I have been using it for over six years. I use an editor primarily to modify existing HTML or CFM pages. I rarely use it to create one from scratch, and typically use less than half of its baked-in features.
  • Easy to use editing features
  • Helpful analysis of code, and useful suggestions for corrections
  • Very useful split-screen preview of HTML code
  • Wizards to guide inserting tables, links, images, audio etc.
  • Maybe I could list a con if my use of it was more diverse and consistent. It does everything and more for my purposes, and in ways I Iike very much.
  • This editor certainly saves time in reducing my need to know and/or check coding minutiae.
My typical use is to edit HTML and CFM pages from prior projects, and use them to create new ones. So, I rarely use the tools for designing pages provided in this application. I have found the ability to preview a page very useful. I am aware of numerous features in this editor, that simpler editors would not provide. It has proven to be a great fit for my use.
