But afrer a long time edittion of style.css the iThoughts ACE was cleared edited css file. Maybe, this version doesn't support last v.4.6.

I didn't check all other options but I did check a few and this was the best and most modern one. The rating is not so good but it's probably underrated just because it's new. I recommend trying it out!

I installed the editor and it does what is promised except the shortcode does not work for me. Hade all my code on one line. Much more important I would like to see this editor as a replacement for the "codeview" on the posts and pages views (HTML,CSS). This option isn't available up to now. Hope this will be added and the shortcode fixed. Regards
