From the binary I deduct it uses SynEdit?

Of so, I couldn't find the License applying to your editor? It should be GPL or MPL, since SynEdit is Licensed under those 2 (permitting to choose one of them).

Not sure about MPL, but GPL afaik requires the source published.

The FAQ has some about licensing:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_Faq#Licensing

About the requirements of each individual License => I am no Layer, so I can not advice...

The LCL is specially licensed, so you can use it in any app of yours, and are free how to license your app, including closed source and commercial sale.
I do *not* know if you need to mention, that it is part of your app; but the courtesy to do so would be welcome anyway.

As for what is in the LCL => use "jump to implementation" (alt cursur up / ctrl mouse), and check it is in the LCL folder.

[edit]: or check in the project inspector, what packages your app depends on (so long as you don't move/copy files, or tweak search pathes by hand)

Other components (even so coming with lazarus) have various licenses.

SynEdit, is based on http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/synedit/index.php?title=SynEdit_Home_Page => which is based on mwedit
It existed before it was used by lazarus, so the license was already specified.

Hello Adam.
I'm wondering and is Hydraks? is it Text editor like Notepad++, or is it Pascal editor?
I didn't find any information about it in your site or here in this thread.
Thanks

Also if you put screen shots in your site for the product it will be good.

Nice...

You can use a few build-in thinks:
- SFileSaveDialogs look at the options PromptOnOverwrite => no need to do this by hand

- SynEdit.Modified
maintains a modified status, that also reflects to undo/redo

Interesting.

You might want to look at this one too :
http://www.contexteditor.org/

ConTEXT is Coded in Pascal, (Delphi) and recently has been open sourced. One big stumbling block they have, is it is rather Delphi dependent.

Suggestions:
a) ConTEXT has a large number of user highlighters, so you could make yours use the same format.

b) If you are doing config, do not lock to c:\, but allow it to operate from a FlashDrive. (usually, that's a cfg file in the exe dir)

c) Look also at NotePad++, tho they compile-in most highlighters.

d) "Set Has Pascal" reads like it did not cross a language barrier.
- more usual is a tab called Highlighter, or Language select,
and then the selected Language is a single word, and the present-choice is shown.

e) Bookmarks todo, and you might check into the new column edit mode in NotePAD - Select column using Alt-drag, and then any typing Chars.Del clone into all Y locations.
