What do you do? I write science fiction novels. People pay me to do this; I'm not sure why.
When did you start using BBEdit? I first met BBEdit in, I think, 1993 -- a very early release (3.x, I think) running on MacOS 7.0 on a Macintosh LC I acquired second-hand. At that time I was working with UNIX systems; vi was my preferred editor on that platform. Shortly thereafter I discovered another Mac text editor -- Pete Keleher's Alpha -- which I preferred, but Alpha is long since dead while BBEdit seems to grow more powerful and all-encompassing with every passing year.
What do you make? How does BBEdit help? I write books. Alas, I don't usually use a text editor to do this any more -- my publishers all went to electronic workflow some time ago and for them, "electronic workflow" means Word documents and PDF files. BBEdit gets used for the unavoidable bits and pieces for which I need a text editor these days.
What's your favorite project that BBEdit has helped bring to life? Collaborating on a novel (The Rapture of the Nerds) with Cory Doctorow; it's due out this coming September. I think the most sophisticated feature I used was syntax colourisation for Markdown text; when you're just adding raw material to a single long text file there's not much call for sophistication!
Which feature is your favorite? Not sure. Editing text?
