    With the all neat homebrew appearing, it made me think. Why there is 0 text editors for 3DS homebrew?

    "Why would you want this? You can just edit the files by putting the SD card to a PC! Or use microSD manager!"
    Some people might not have access to a PC anytime, and just putting a SD card to change only one bit of text? Yeah, I'd rather use a file editor.

    "But the 3DS's keyboard is hard to use!"
    You will get used to it after a short time. Trust me. When I first got PTC (Petit Computer), I had a bit of struggling with the keyboard. But after a while, it wasn't hard to use at all!

    "Why don't you make it yourself?"
    ...

    So that is my request. Can someone create a simple text editor?

    I looked at CTRXplorer and I couldn't find a text editor.

    Correct that's on me I thought you meant file renaming not an actual .txt editor.
