EditPad Pro v7.1.2 retail-iOTA
EditPad Pro is a powerful and versatile text editor or word processor.
Designed to make text editing as convenient as possible, using
EditPad Pro to edit text files will save you a lot of time and frustration.
Changes in EditPad Pro 7.1.2:
File Types: Tcl file type with a much improved syntax coloring scheme
and a brand new file navigation scheme.
64-bit: Indicate x86, x64, or WOW64 in the About box to indicate
whether you're running the 32-bit version on 32-bit Windows, the
64-bit version on 64-bit Windows, or the 32-bit version on 64-bit Windows.
Extra|Delete Duplicate Lines now uses all CPU cores while comparing lines.
File Navigator: Clicking on a node in the file navigator should make as much
of the node's range visible as possible, rather than centering the view on
the first line in the range.
Mark: Change the caption of the Set Bookmark N menu items to Move
Bookmark N or Remove Bookmark N to indicate that an existing bookmark will
be moved or removed.
Preferences, Open Files: Huge files threshold now has an upper limit of 10 of
the amount of RAM on your PC rather than a fixed 200 MB limit on 64-bit Windows.
Project: Preserve the scrolling position of the file tabs when switching between projects.
Project|Open Folder now remembers the status of its checkboxes when you restart EditPad Pro.
Search|Find on Disk now remembers the status of its checkboxes when you restart EditPad Pro.
Search|List All Matches, Find on Disk, Count Matches, and Copy Matches now update the status
bar indicator with the number of search matches.
Search|Toggle Search Panel has been renamed as Multi-Line Search Panel to make it clearer
what this menu item does.
Status bar: Double-clicking the indicator for the Unicode code point or code page position of the
character at the cursor selects that character in the character map.
Toolbars: If you have never customized the toolbars and haven't used an earlier version of
EditPad 7.x.x then EditPad no longer saves the toolbar configuration, resulting in a noticeably
faster shutdown of EditPad on slower computers. If you did customize the toolbars or use an
earlier version, then you can use View|Restore Default Layout to tell EditPad to stop saving the
Tools: Selected text that is replaced by a tool now remains selected.
64-bit: Handling of "multimedia" keyboard keys and user-configured mouse buttons was broken
in the 64-bit version of EditPad.
Byte value editor did not scale properly on high DPI systems.
Byte value editor did not use the font specified in Options|Preferences|Panels.
Clip Collection: Automatic save should not trigger errors when modifying clip collections stored in
the Program Files folder.
Context menu customizations did not stick in versions 7.1.x.
Explorer/FTP: File types listed in the filter panel were not immediately updated after clicking OK in
Options|Configure File Types.
Extra|Delete Duplicate Lines incorrectly treated lines with rare combinations of different text as
Files Panel: Closed files were not shown dimmed if the colors in Options|Preferences|Background
were set to "default".
Fold: Deleting a line in the middle of a foldable range no longer removes the folding point. Deleting
the first or last line in the range will still remove it.
History: Saving milestones for all files in a project fails if the project has closed files that were never
opened in the current EditPad session.
Installer: License key was not installed when installing EditPad 7.0.9, 7.1.0, or 7.1.1 silently.
Mouse pointer did not snap to the default button when this option is turned on in the Control Panel.
Preferences, Keyboard: Altletter combinations used as accelerators on the Preferences form could
not be assigned as shortcuts to menu items. The same problem also existed in the Tools configuration
and Macro properties.
Preferences|Cursors: "Backspace unindents" does not correctly unindent when the preceding line it
has to unindent to has only one non-whitespace character at the very end of the line.
Preferences|Keyboard: Button to restore default keyboard shortcuts did not restore those of the side
panels other than the Search panel.
Preferences|Keyboard: Clip Collection commands were not listed.
Preferences|Keyboard: Side panel shortcuts were not shown in the list of conflicting shortcuts.
Preferences|Tabs: The option to show the close button only on the active tab allowed non-active tabs
to be closed when clicking on the space reserved for the close button.
Search: Blank files are no longer skipped when searching for a regular expression, so that regular
expressions such as A can find zero-length matches in blank files.
Search: Line by Line mode found/highlighted lines in which a zero-length regex match could be found
after the line break.
Search: Regular expressions no longer fail to find zero-length matches at the start of the file when
using a command to find the next match or all matches.
Search|Cut Matches sometimes used the replacement text from a previous search-and-replace.
Search|Replace All triggered an access violation if it found a match at the very end of the file and the
replacement text was shorter than the search match.
Search|Replace All with the "Line by Line" option no longer deletes the line break at the end of the line
if the replacement text is not blank. This prevents the next line from being appended to the replaced
line and prevents all lines after the first match from being deleted if the search term is part of the
Spell check panel did not scale properly on high DPI systems.
Spell check: Double-clicking a misspelled word highlighted by live spelling while the spell check panel was
still busy finding suggestions for a previously double-clicked word closed the spell checker instead of
checking the new word.
Spell check: Words that are the result of automatic replacements by the spell checker should not be
marked as misspelled, even if the original dictionary does not contain them.
Syntax coloring sometimes stops too soon with updating the colors while you edit the file, causing old
colors that have become incorrect to persist on lines after the line you're editing.
Syntax coloring: Text without highlighting on the active line following a line with highlighting
until right margin" was sometimes painted using the "until right margin" color from the previous line
when the option to highlight the active line was enabled.
Tools: Command lines using non-executable files were not launched correctly if the file association for
the file contained SystemRoot in the middle.
UTF-8 auto-detection ignored an invalid UTF-8 sequence at the very end of the file.
View|Browser started Firefox minimized if Firefox was not running and Firefox was the default browser
and EditPad Pro was configured to use the default browser.
View|Custom Layouts: If restoring a layout triggered any kind of error, the menu with the saved layouts
View|Office 2003: Switching to or from the Office 2003 display style worked only once during each EditPad
session (7.1.x only).
View|Restore Default Layout now also restores the size and position of the main editor, in case it has
become dislodged from its normally fixed location.
View|Restore Default Layout squished toolbar icons together on PCs configured for 144 DPI (150) or more.
View|Saved Layouts: Loading a layout that has the File Navigator in a tabbed panel failed if the active file
used a file navigation scheme.
Windows 7: Options|Stay on Top causes the Options|Font window to appear behind EditPad, making it
impossible to further interact with EditPad using the mouse; EditPad now works around this Windows 7
issue by temporarily disabling "stay on top" mode while showing the Font dialog.
