EmEditor v18.4.0 beta 2 (18.3.92)

Today, we are releasing EmEditor v18.4.0 beta 2 (18.3.92).

Updates from v18.4.0 beta 1 (18.3.92) include:

New General Features

  • Added the ability to use JavaScript as a replacement expression when using regular expression or number range to replace. For converting replace expressions, EmEditor uses Chakra (JScript v11) for improved speed. Because this engine is seperate from the macro environment, various objects used for macros are not available for replace expressions. Examples of replacement expressions include:
Replacement ExpressionMeaning
\J "\0" + "abc"appends "abc" at the end of the matched string
\J "\0".substr( 0, 5 );returns the first 5 characters of the matched string
\J \0 * 100;multiply a matched number with 100
\J parseFloat( \0 ).toFixed(2);rounds a matched number to 2 decimal places

New Options

  • Added the Mode drop-down list box to the Find, Replace, Find in Files, Replace in Files, and Advanced Filter dialog box.
  • Added the Use Number Range button to the Find and Filter toolbars.

Notes: Beta versions are updated frequently. In order to update automatically to future beta versions, please select Select Update Channel on the Help menu, and select Betas.
