I love this extension. Now I can edit my .txt files in google Drive. I use it daily, and I really recommend it. I haven´t had issues with it so far. In the future it be helpful to add: - Autosave feature (so you don´t have to Ctrl+S to save) - Enable word wrap (so long lines not entering on screen are rendered on a new line) - Enable mouse wheel to scroll the page

Just lost almost a week of work.. Has worked fine for weeks, then the document hit version 100, stopped saving to drive without showing any errors and only saved a new version (of the week old document) when I restarted my browser. I wouldn't use this for anything important.

Nice app. I too will use this as a replacement for the Drive Notepad app. Having issue with multiple Google accounts logged in during a single browser session. Only the first account was able to authorize the app, the other accounts just show a blank screen with no pop-up to auth and therefore cannot be used at all.

I also wanted a simple replacement for Drive Notepad when it stopped working with an 'authorization required' error. Commanditor does this well. However, it is irritating that it won't open files unless they have a Google file type of 'text' and an extension that Commanditor recognises, e.g. '.txt'. The work around is to ensure files are uploaded with a .txt extension to get the file type 'text'. Files can then be renamed as required. But to edit the file one must rename the file to re-add the '.txt' extension! If there is a better way, please advise ;-)

Thanks for the tip AlanGill (I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't open certain files). I guess I'll have to rename it and not be able to use this with certain file types. This looks like more of a google docs problem to me, that as a user you can't associate files with an app, or choose on the fly which of the apps to open any file with.
