Need guidance whether to keep using 292 or upgrade to Tools?

    I have used 292 for many years and when Tools came out I tried it but I went back to 292 - mostly because I am resistant to change AND technically-challenged.

    I think if I could take some time in the learning curve, I could make use of the many features HTML-Kit has that I currently do not use. Don't laugh, but I actually use very few features other than "Preview."

    One problem is that I'm not a full-time webmaster, so I go for periods where I don't use HTML-Kit.

    I would be grateful if someone could point me to a forum discussion or FAQ or some resource that would help me decide whether to stay with 292 or upgrade to Tools.

      You can do both.
      I'm using daily 292 and Tools f.i. for Search and Replace, which is much
      easier in Tools.
      Especially when more then one line is involved.
      Of course it is possible in 292 but only with regex and that is rather
      difficult to use.

      The learning curve on Tools is sort of like foothills leading to
      a mountain. You can learn to do the simple stuff fairly quickly
      (with help from here) and then, like Zen, spend the rest of your
      life learning what is hidden from view. I have been using tools
      from the first beta, and still learn something new every month.
      Some is useful to me, some is not (but interesting none the less).

      For me the hardest part of using tools initially was setting up
      the projects. Now that is the most useful part, tools remembers
      how to upload each page/script to the right place.

      As Gerard suggested, use 292 for that which must be done right
      now and play with Tools for the rest until you feel comfortable.

          Not speaking for Gerard, but, "my pleasure" and a chance go give
          something back to the HTML community.
