The following outstanding capabilities are offered by the new StormC5ED:

Dragging a file icon in an editor window or on the editor appicon will open that file.
Extreme fast syntax highlighing:
Lightning fast syntax highlighting, Recognized words can be highlighted with colour and/or font attributes.
The driver for the syntax highlightning are applied as external modules. As a result, the editor is extensible for future tasks.
File classes do currently exist for the following languages:
- C/C++ (minimum requirement SDK 53.20),
- Catalog-Descriptions (for use with CatComp),
For recognized words the relevant definition/Quick-Help is displayed.
In a document an umlimited number of bookmarks can be set and jumped to with a keyboard shortcut.
Folding parts of a document via definable fold marks:
For example, so in C/C++ files, the method bodies are folded away for clarity and better readability of the code.
MDI- or TDI-Userinterface:
Texts can be displayed either in a separate window for each text (MDI - multiple document interface) or all together in a single window with Tab control (TDI - Tabbed Document Interface).
Automatic indentation (atm. only for C/C++):
On typing of a character that initiates or terminates a block, the editor can react with different variations to increase or reduce the indentation ("keep your source code clean and tidy").
Visualization of tabulators, spaces and linefeeds:
Optional displaying of these characters to find missing tabs in a "makefile", for example.
The GUI of the editor is available in 7 languages:
In the basic package, the StormC5Ed interface has already been translated into 7 languages: German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Danish and Russian are currently available. Other languages will follow.
