The Align plugin alows one to group selected text into columns just
like you would do in OpenOffice.org Write or other advanced text
editor. You can even set a background color for the text with the
intuitively-named Current Line Background Color plugin. If you have
the GtkSourceCompletion library installed, you can use the Document
Words Completion plugin to ease the way you write your text. The
Word completion plugin does the same thing by popping up a small
context menu that allows the user to chose the right word.
The Send To plugin can be particularly useful if you wish to
quickly send a text file to someone via e-mail. It creates a new
entry in the file menu, just below the Save As option. Would you
like the session saver functionality from Firefox included in
Gedit? No problem - use this plugin to restore the last used tabs
automatically on startup.
"The Grep plugin can be used to search for text not only in
files, but also folders. One thing worth mentioning is that this
plugin searches through files even if they weren't saved yet. How
about Multiple Copy/Paste Channels? You can chose what to paste by
picking one of the ten channels that this plugin has to offer."
