Selecting a G-Code editor

I'm just now starting to assemble my Duet3D 6HC (5 Stepper NEMA23 Hi Torque), RasberryPI4, 7"screen and am curious. I received this article today called 10 Best G-Code editors...
So, what do you all recommend? This is my first exposure to G-Code.
Thanks in advance,
Sorry, wrong title. that issue was fixed.
Should read... selecting a G-Code editor...

In answer your question, (rather than the title), a gcode file is just a text file so whatever text editor you feel comfortable with. Bit it might depend on what exactly it is that you want to do. Is it just minor tweaks to the start and end code or something else? For simple things my personal preference is notepad++ (it's free). For my complex things like for example changing the mixing ratio every three layers, I write little python scripts and run those on the file.

I agree with Ian that text editors are the way to go for minor edits. Notepad++ chokes up for me on files past 100,000 lines, so I switched over to VS Code with a g-code plugin for highlighting. Works flawlessly even with 1,000,000+ line files.

RJ Texted now has a syntax file available I did that contains the RRF object model and GCode references.
You have to manually enable it.
Please note, that at present the file is only contained in the "Update" download, so even if you download V14.4, you also need to install the update them go into the background and enable it
as per this thread
Thank you all for your comments about he G_Code Editor. Very Helpful!

Just a slight pitch for Sublime Text. It does cost money though...
