There is a also a great and free program called TextWrangler, that has many advanced features for searching, replacing and restructuring data. It can also handle absurdly large text files without blinking an eye.

You can Bookmark in TextPad which is very nice tool when you have a very long syntax and its helping me a lot.

I like Mark's suggestion about descriptive tags that you can search for. If you prefer line numbers, one option is to use Notepad or some other text editor (e.g., TextPad has a "go to line #" function) as your syntax editor. Syntax files are simply text files with a SPS extension.

A full-powered text editor like TextPad has many other capabilities that the syntax editor lacks.

Does anyone know if there's a "Go To Specific Line" function in the Syntax Editor window (v13 or v14) analagous to CTRL+G in Notepad? So, say I have a syntax file with 10,000 lines, and I want to "jump" to line 3500...

Many thanks,
