The OP looks for an editor that replaces the simple GUI editor mousepad
with something similar, but with more features.

It's "surreal" to recommend emacs or vi(m). 

"Eight Megabytes And Constantly Swapping
Even a Master of Arts Comes Simpler
Emacs Manuals Are Cryptic and Surreal"

About Emacs "a great operating system, lacking only a decent editor"
About vi "vi has two modes – "beep repeatedly" and "break everything"
