New General Features

  • The new version allows you to use any encoding when opening, reloading, or saving files without first defining them in the Define Encodings dialog box.

The initial list of encodings can be customized via the Encoding list in the Define Encodings dialog box.
  • If Dark mode is used in Windows 10, EmEditor will also use dark colors. EmEditor displays custom bars, drop-down list boxes in the Find/Filter toolbars, text boxes, and list boxes inside dialog boxes in dark colors when Dark mode is selected in the Colors tab under Personalization in Windows Settings. Some of these colors can be further customized in the View page of the Customize dialog box. Editor view colors becomes dark colors when selecting the MinimalZen in the Display page of configuration properties.

New Options

  • Added the Enable/Disable All check box to the Define Encodings dialog box, and removed the New, Delete, Up, Down, Properties buttons from the dialog box. The Encoding Properties dialog box was deprecated.

Store App versions of EmEditor released

Today, we are releasing EmEditor v17.8.2 for Store App. This is essentially the same version as v17.8.1 for Desktop (non-Store App) versions, but Store Apps can be downloaded exclusively from Microsoft Store. You can download Store Apps at:

EmEditor (64-bit) Store App
EmEditor (32-bit) Store App

Advantages of this store app over non-store versions of EmEditor:
– Installation and uninstallation is easier
– Updates are completely automatic
– As a UWP app, no changes are made to system files. Settings are stored inside the app container.
– You can install an app on up to 10 devices while signed in to your Microsoft account.
– You can install an app on Windows 10 in S mode.

For technical details, see Compare Desktop Installer, Desktop Portable, and Store App Versions.

Price for subscription – $19.99 USD plus taxes per year

Licenses acquired outside the Store cannot be used for the store app, due to Microsoft’s Terms of Sale. Therefore, subscriptions for this store app are sold separately from licenses for non-store apps, including desktop installer versions and portable versions. This means that registration keys that were purchased outside of the Microsoft Store cannot be used for this store app.

Subscriptions for the 32-bit version and 64 bit version are not interchangeable – a subscription for the 32-bit version cannot be used for the 64-bit version and visa versa.

As of today, we don’t offer academic licenses anymore, however you may purchase a store app with the same low price as the former academic license.

EmEditor v17.8.1 released!

Today, we are releasing EmEditor v17.8.1.

Updates from v17.8.0 include:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the bug where the last line of each page could not be printed when printing.
  • Fixed a certain issue related to column selection searches in CSV mode.
  • Fixed a bug where importing settings did not refresh toolbar buttons.
  • Fixed customer-reported issues (1, 2, 3).

Please see EmEditor v17.8 New Features for details and screenshots.

If you use the Installer version, you can select Check for Updates on the Help to download the newest version. If you use one of the other versions, you can go to the Download page to download the newest version.

In order to reduce the installer size, the Help file is not included in the installer. You can view the Web Help with your browser, or download the separate Help file. If you would like to download the separate local Help file, please go to the Download Help page.

This version is available free if you have a lifetime license or if your maintenance plan is valid as of June 20, 2018. Your registration keys might be found in the Emurasoft Customer Center. The registration key for v17 is the same as the key for v14, v15, and v16.

A new team member at Emurasoft

I am very excited to announce that my son, Makoto Emura, has joined our team. He has already helped produce our recent new features of EmEditor, including our new Character Count plug-in, which he has built by himself. His detail-minded professionalism lends greatly to making excellent test programs. He is passionate for protecting our customer data as well as our code base. His creativity and uniqueness will lead innovation in our business for the future. I believe he is a person of integrity, not just from a father’s standpoint, but from a co-worker’s perspective. I believe he possesses all good business ethics for the future when he succeeds our business.

He lived in the United States since Kindergarten, and he studies Computer Science at Bellevue College, in Washington. He is a dual citizen of Japan and the United States. Please welcome Makoto to our community, and feel free to give him any advice you might have regarding our direction in the future.
