Text editing test and practice: text, Vim and Emacs editor

Text editing test and practice is available to not only practice typing, but also editing of text. Today we have many text materials already available, so we are often faced with editing of existing text material. A good example of that is Wikipedia, where we now rather edit existing texts than enter new ones.

The latest feature of the touch typing app also supports text editing test. The test uses two texts: first text is the starting text and the other text is the end text. The goal is to edit given starting text to match the end text. We have to do that in the least number of steps possible.

The app supports various text modes as well as different text editors. There is a simple plain text editor, Vim editor and Emacs editor. With better editors it is possible to edit the text faster and in less number of moves.  Before we can achieve that  we have to learn text editors like Vim and Emacs, especially the various shortcut commands that are available.

The testing editor can be used for testing your skills or practice and learn fast text editing including Vim and Emacs. The number of keys pressed while editing is being recorded as your result. The less keys you need to edit a text editing problem, the better the result. At the end you can also use a replay button to see your editing again. The new test editing update can be tried out here: http://protyper.bisbay.com/?edit=1. Like the touch typing module, this one also supports all languages.
