As someone who uses BBEdit to work with text as much as possible, QuickCursor lets me do so for virtually every bit of text I need to type.

When you’re done, simply use the standard Mac OS X Save and Close commands—either from the File menu or by pressing Command+S, Command+W. QuickCursor works with the following text editors –

  • BBEdit & Espresso
  • MacVim & Smultron
  • SubEthaEdit & TextMate
  • TextWrangler & WriteRoom.

QuickCursor is open source software and it available for sale in the Mac App Store, but the source code is also available on Github.
