Editor for IDEA scripting

Hi Brian,
I am using the German version of IDEA 9.2 (and have not seen the Canadian original yet). However, I am not really happy about the editor which is included in the software. For testing purposes it is sometimes convenient to comment a whole block of code. I could not find a function to do it in this editor.
Do you use the standard editor for scripting in IDEA or can you recommend a different one?
Best,
Bobby

Hi Bobby,

Unfortunately I have to agree with you on that.  The editor is fairly old and doesn't have a lot of the functionality that you would expect in a modern editor, such as code completion, comment blocks, etc.  I haven't tried using it but I know severaly of the programmers that script at IDEA use Notepad++, so you might want to give that a try.
