I'm still eternally tweaking it, of course.
Some things I'm presently attempting to deal with....
1) The display window is a multiline input so that it can be edited, but input apparently does not allow you to jump automatically back to the first line, so it initially displays the bottom portion of the script. Input also does not allow keyboard use of buttons (input always retains focus for some reason), so there is currently little keyboard support. I'm working to fix both of these issues by using a Hold_Browser instead of Multiline_Input. This will just make saving an edited file a little more complicated (for me, not you), and editing itself will be done in a separate field, which may seem unnatural for some people.
2) Currently overwrites any existing file without confirmation during a save, and doesn't let you know when the target file is not writeable...these will be fixed eventually.
3) I don't like the idea of using a wrapper of one language to manage a script of another language...hope to get that sorted out soon so i can reduce and simplify.
4) I have a need to make applications as keyboard-friendly as possible. Lua-FLTK is not the keyboardiest thing available, but it's not too shabby. I still have a lot of work to do here.
