Which STableE Editor ?


For all users (new & old):

It is recommended to open a STableE editor pair (Flash + HTML) in two browser tabs simultaneously. They form two parts of one app.

To easily resize tables in plain-text mode, open ASCIIFlow in a 3rd browser tab.

See links which lead to STableE (Flash), STableE (HTML) & ASCIIFlow in:

STableE Home Page: System Requirements & Editor Page Section

 

For new users: See below the needs that the editors meet

 

STableE Flash - use this editor when you need to:

  • modify an existing plain text file without converting to another format like HTML
  • add ReStructuredText elements by using the Easy ReST toolbar command

STableE HTML - use this editor when you need to:

  • create a new plain text table easily
  • bring in an existing table from a HTML file
  • bring in an existing table from an Excel / Google Sheet
    • copy the table & paste it in the 'Design' view
  • bring in an existing table from a Word Document

ASCIIFlow (website external to STableE) - use this editor when you need to:

NOTE: Please see the Usage Video Clip ASCII Flow (Draw Tables) & observe

          the correction of inner table vertex characters to form a proper ReST

          table ('-' characters changed to '+' characters at the end)

 

To view large tables that overlap editor bounds in STableE Flash

  • use the 'View For Clipboard (TouchScreen)' feature present in all STableE Flash versions to review table edits
