There is no editor AFAIK that will "load a text file from a disk image in 
vcc". CoCoDskUtil may do what you wish, I remember it also had problems with 

There are two ways that I use to transfer files from CoCo "dsk" files and PC 

First is the PORT utility in Jeff's and John's emulator. John's one is 
preferred as he fixed some things Jeff did not do right.

Yes it is awkward to use, but it works ALL the time.


If you want a visual way to transfer the files, perhaps with some problems 
that I need to find again and tell the author about.



Go up one higher level and there is a redirect to the file.

I thought that I created a topic for the best editor IMHO for the PC, but I 
cannot find it.
