Default JS Notepad?

Just an idea, because the required skills i unfortunately lack.

Would be nice to have one as a native (as it were) Reaper plugin, if the scripting language is at all suitable for the task.

In regards to notes or a notepad, these options currently come into mind:

If you're referring with 'JS Notepad' to something else: can you please elaborate or post more details about what features you're looking for.

Thank you for suggestions. Of these I'm aware, Lokasenna's text editor as far as I understand is not an independent utility. It seems to only work as part of complete scripts and is not meant to accept text in real time.

I envision a JS plugin which can be loaded alongside FX on a track much like Notepad VSTs of which there're a few in existence.

The functions can be the most basic without fancy formatting options and even font selection.
Probably provide as much as the ability to adjust font size which can have variable within the code itself without GUI controls, be able to wrap text to fit the window which can be resizable, and generate vertical scroll bar.

I assume the FX rack is one of the most frequented locations in the program and with a JS Notepad loaded on a particular track a user will always have the notes at their fingertips. And it also would be readily accessible in the MCP from the insert slot.

What is wrong with using any of these existing ones?

Nothing wrong. On the other hand with JS Notepad Reaper would have its own, and provided it's added to the ReaPack, its users would as well.

In essence Reaper didn't have to include JS plugins at all if it was able to load and run VSTs, but it does offer them, so why not a Notepad as well?

Appreciate the suggestions however the thread is not about lack of VST notepads as such on the market, it's about what's stated in the initial post.
