Comments: Using Subversion via TextPad


If you edit with TextPad a lot, you probably want to keep back ups of the in between versions. Instead of making a zip at the end of the day, I recommend to use a version control system, like Subversion. Moreover, it's very easy to call it from Textpad itself, and hence you can make it part of the editing process itself.

Thank you! I have loved Textpad for years and use it everyday for coding and data processing. Recently I tweaked the classes to create my own syntax highlighting. Anyway I was turned onto using SVN and your tutorial made it easy to tweak textpad. cheers

It may be years since you wrote this...but thanks. It still works great and is the only resource I can find on the web about adding SVN to textpad.

Thanks a lot John, your instructions are very clear and this is a breeze to setup! I've been using TortoiseSVN and TextPad separately for about a year and it never dawned on me that it could be combined in such a simple way. Great stuff!
