The xeditor Command

The xeditor command invokes a text editing window for editing circuit and other text files. It is available only when graphics is enabled.

xeditor [file]
This is similar to the edit command, however the internal editor is always used. The editor variable and the environment variables used by the edit command are ignored by the xeditor command.

The xeditor command brings up a general-purpose text editor window. The same pop-up editor is invoked in read-only mode by the Notes button of the Help menu in the Tool Control window for use as a file viewer. In that mode, commands which modify the text are not available.

See 3.8 for more information about the text editor.
