Any document applications that are more precise than Gedit, but not as heavy / loaded as Libre Writer?:

I hate using Libre writer so always default to Gedit, but oftentimes need to bold/italicize something and cannot do so on Gedit- is there some middle-path between the fully-functional writing suite that is Libre, and bare-as-can-be Gedit?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions! FWIW I’m using linux mint w/ the XFCE desktop enviro ;D
