    1) One feature that is lacking from just about every text editor is the ability to dynamically switch between normal text view and hex/binary view.

    2) Ability to Undo/Redo through saves. TextPad has an option to “Clear undo buffer when saving” – When enable, undo/redo through save is not possible, but when disabled, it is possible.

    3) Re-design of Options dialog(s) to use a single dialog with categories shown in treeview on left, much like TextPad’s. EmEditor’s currently reqyuires too many clicks/dialogs for some operations, like changing font (TextyPad allows you to change font and then click Apply to immediately see change in current document)

    4) Option to always show close button on tab (instead of just on the active one)

    5) Ability to show find in files results in dockable window, instead of just another tab, thereby allowing user to view results while also viewing a document.

    6) Display number of bytes and lines selected in status bar

    7) Ability to create a new document, even if the currently active document is new and un-modified.

    8) Speed up handling of very long lines. For example, on a line which contains 10 millions characters, all operations (eg. cursor movement, selection, etc.) become more sluggish the further right into the line you get (eg. at end of line there is noticeable delay when moving cursor or selecting text).

    9) If Find In Files is opened from the tray icon, the Cursor is flashing in the Find editbox on the Find In Files window. However, it does not accept entry until you click on the window itself. Can you make it so that it’s possible to start typing immediately without having to click on the window first ?

    10) Also, the position of the Find In Files window is not remembered so it always opens in the centre of the screen. Can you make it remember the window position ?

    Since this is suggestion forum, I am not going to respond to each suggestion. However, you can do

    4) Option to always show close button on tab (instead of just on the active one)

    by selecting “On Each Tab” on Close Button drop-down list box (Customize dialog box – Tab tab – Tab Mouse Options dialog box).

    Very good suggestions! I would like to augment one of yours slightly:

    5) Ability to show find in files results in dockable window, instead of just another tab, thereby allowing user to view results while also viewing a document.

    Add to this a keystroke that allows you to go to the next item in the “found” list. Kind of like VS does when you have compiler errors and you can move to the next error.

    This is a HUGE timesaver!
