Version 10

June 30, 2010

New General Features

Compare and Synchronize Scrolling features were added.

Spelling features were added.

Vertical selection of zero width at the right of end of lines will cause the selection move to end of each line in the selection. Then typing will insert text at end of each line (even if line lengths are not the same).

The new Numbering command allows you to insert sequential numbers or characters at the cursor position or vertical selection.

The CSV mode now allows you to include newline characters in a cell. Embedded returns are displayed as M (CR) and/or J (LF) in the reversed background color when the Show Control Characters check box is checked in the Marks tab of configuration properties.

The context menu displayed by right-clicking on a folder in Windows Explorer now includes the new Find in Files with EmEditor command.

The auto recovery feature now opens the last used workspace automatically (the Recovered Files dialog has been deprecated). When updating EmEditor with the new installer, EmEditor windows will be automatically closed, and they will be reopened as the last used workspace.

The new installer now allows several language editions in a single installer (currently English and Japanese are included).

The new Update Checker that came with the new installer is now used (v9 Update Checker has been deprecated).

New command line option /cmp was added.

When localized language files are old, EmEditor now automatically uses English strings and dialog box resources whenever possible.

EmEditor now supports a combination of left (&l), center (&c), and right (&r) align for Print header and footer.

Binary (Hexadecimal View) mode now includes ASCII view side by side.

Vertical selection is now limited to logical selections (multiple selections because of line wraps are no longer allowed).

In the previous version, a new untitled document was opened after canceling the dialog box that appears when reloading a file with invalid characters. This has been fixed, except when opening a huge file asynchronously.

Default PHP highlight strings were updated to the latest PHP function list.

A new replacement expression (?n:true_expression:false_expression) was added to the regular expression syntax.

New plug-in features

Snippets plug-in

The WordComplete plug-in now works inside Snippet placeholders.

The global option was added to the Snippets plug-in regular expression.

Word Complete plug-in

The Exclude Matched and Same-Length Word from the Candidate List check box was added to the Options tab of the plug-in properties.

Explorer plug-in

The Explorer plug-in did not always synchronize the selection with an opened active file. This bug was fixed.

The Standard Error drop-down list box was added to the External Tool Properties, and the Include Standard Error check box was deprecated. This change allows you to specify the Standard Output and the Standard Error outputs separately.

Category name is now displayed when you press an assigned key in the Press New Shortcut Key text box.

The Files or Folders to Ignore text box (Find in Files > Advanced) now allows up to 15,999 characters.

The > button on the right side of the Find/Replace drop-down list (Find/Replace/Find in Files/Replace in Files dialog) now includes Selected Text, Word at Cursor, Custom, Save as Default, and Multiline commands. The = button was deprecated.

Another > button was added to the right side of the File Types drop-down list box (Find in Files/Replace in Files dialog). This button includes Current File Type, Current File, and Save as Default commands.

The ... button on the right side of the In Folder drop-down list box (Find in Files/Replace in Files dialog) was changed to the > button. This button includes Current Folder, Parent Folder, Grand Parent Folder, Custom, Browse, and Save as Default commands.

Use Selected Text in Find/Replace Dialog Box check box, Use Word at Cursor in Find/Replace Dialog Box check box, and Use Current Folder as Default for Find in Files check box (Search tab of the Customize dialog box) were deprecated.

Tab order was changed in the Replace/Find in Files/Replace in Files dialog boxes.
