I like to use Dreamweaver because of the site manager & built in FTP. Makes things very easy!

A lot of PHP Devs on Mac OSX that I know use something called Coda. I hear that chatter a lot on Twitter. I'm an Ubuntu Linux user, though, so I wouldn't know.

I've been using DW being that I'm a novice but starting grow out of it so to speak in the automatic coding part of it.

But for a text editor...it ain't bad.

PHPdesigner was OK, but nothin special IMHO

Jedit...2 thumbs down

My preferred editor is Dreamweaver.
I'm pretty new to it all but it is really user friendly and the built in FTP is so convenient.

What would be quite nice, though I appreciate phpBB may not facilitate it, is that each item (ie, the names of the IDEs) in the poll display as a hyperlink to each application's respective websites.

It's possible, however I'm afraid it would reset the votes cast so far. So it's a suggestion for new editor superthread (which we should create anyway as this one is 2 years old).

I am using pspad and previously edit plus.

I am looking for a new editor/IDE at the moment and was wondering if you good peeps could help me find one.

I have been looking at moving from an editor to a full IDE but am not sure which are best.

At work we have 2 servers one of which is a dev server so I usually work on the remote files. I want something that allows opening of files direct from the server and allows saving straight back to the server.

Good code highlighting and the ability to find objects and methods would be nice to aid with coding. I am currently trying netbeans and have setup a remote project. It would be nice if there was an option to check for new/changed files on the server.

If the editor creates local copies I would like to be able to check for changes to the remote file and update the local copy as I am not the only one who may be working on those files.

A good opportunity also to review the list of IDEs/apps included in the poll, as some notable IDEs (IMO) such as NuSphere PhpED don't feature - perhaps this and some other apps could be listed to help achieve a better picture of the PHP editor landscape, so to speak.
