Such basic editing facilities can still be added to the jEdit text
editor, by working with the (rather small) developer group at
SourceForge. I do this occasionally, but only for really important
things (like updates to HiDPI displays, updates to Java 11 etc.).

Isabelle/PIDE is not so much a text editor, than a semantic IDE. Editing
is important, but not the key thing. For example, when I use IntelliJ
IDEA, I hardly know (and hardly care) about its editing functions, and
still manage to work on large Scala projects smoothly.
