Support for Windows 7 was dropped. You will no longer be able to upgrade to newer versions.
Thank you. This version resolves the issue.
I removed my youtube video, because I inadvertently left personal content in it. I recreated it moments ago to show the issue:
My post above was incorrect. I re-opened a file under version 21.5.0 to see the same issue. It looks like it started with 21.5.0.
I just downloaded and installed version emed64_21.5.0.msi. This version does not face this issue, so it was newly introduced in version 21.5.1 and higher.
21.5.0 is the highest version I am able to use with no issues. Some changes in version 21.5.1 introduced this.
version 21.5.1 also shares this same issue. I attempted to update to it to face the same problem. I will again revert to version 21.4.1
I only own a single computer and no others. This is 64-bit Windows 10 Professional.
I also use emeditor under VMWare Workstation, and this same issue exists under my virtual machines. This would count as a different computer.
I reset setting, allowed emeditor to restart, and the issue was present right after restart.
I used ashampoo uninstaller to perform a full uninstall along with complete registry cleanup.
I reverted to version 21.4.1 to install; however, it won’t install into C:\Program Files as I had always installed it. There is no way to do this now.
I instead installed version emed64_16.4.1.exe to C:\Program Files as I wanted. After that, I launched emed64_21.4.1.msi to upgrade to version 21.4.1.
The issue does not exist under 21.4.1, and it works perfectly as expected.
Watch this video starting at 30+ seconds to clearly see the issue. Installing the older version makes this new issue go away:
My point I will make again is that my use case was super simple. Text Pad handled my simple use case with ease.
EmEditor, on the other hand, opened my simple playlist file in an unexpected format that introduced confusion. I realized later why it formatted my playlist the way it did (which was incorrect and does not apply). I gave up and instead used TextPad 8. I performed the operation in about two seconds.
I can guarantee you that I will never have a need to ever do anything with CSV on my home computer.
My entire intention on opening this text file was to sort it properly. That was all.
CSV is absolutely useless to me and I have no need for it.
Thank you for sharing how to turn it off.
I actually sorted the files with TextPad 8 that I also have a license for. This opened it as a plain text file and sorting was rather simple using it.
Okay — I figured out how to do it.
If you have a Unicode file without a BOM, the only way to have EmEditor save with a BOM is to perform a Save As… from the File menu then select the particular encoding from the Save As dialog ensuring with signature is selected. This will write out a new file with a BOM. It’s the only way to do it.
All Configuration Properties | File | Saving…
Encoding is set for Configured Encoding.
Add a Unicode Signature (BOM) is checked off
However, I open a UTF-8 file with no BOM then save it. EmEditor is not writing a BOM.
I just disabled font resizing that will prevent this issue for me in the fuutre.March 25, 2020 at 12:35 am in reply to: Windows 10 Explorer Right Click Open WIth Shows Two EmEditor Items #26680
I removed one of the duplicated Open With items by performing a full uninstall removing all settings then using Ashampoo Uninstaller version 8 to remove all traces of EmEditor. I rebooted my computer using Ashampoo Uninstaller to log a new install of the latest EmEditor version 19.7.0. Now open with shows a single entry for “EmEditor Try Icon program”.
Too bad I had to lose all settings, but this worked.
I just tried to reproduce it under my Windows 10 VM, but I failed to do so. I have no idea how I managed to encounter this issue. It is possible that this was already fixed at some point in time.
What I suspect happened that caused this issue is that at some point I changed the install location for EmEditor from all users to single user or vice versa. I believe that the option to keep all registry settings then does not update the macros location that resulted in this issue. The question is does it make sense to always update the macro location regardless of the install option to keep all existing settings? If it did always update this, I would never had experienced this issue.
My Windows 7 virtual machine does have EmEditor installed under my local account only. It does not have the issue of not finding macros, and this was a new install of only the latest version. Based on this, it seems this was an old issue from an older build on my Windows 10 VM.
It looks like this is no longer an issue.
EmEditor will not handle this task easily for the reasons noted above. If I were you, I would find a stand alone hex editor for this. I currently use the free Active@ Disk Editor that will search for hex bytes through an entire file easily. It has a find all button that shows all matches in an isolated Find Results pane that you may click to navigate to found results. It’s 100% free and easy to find.
EmEditor cannot do this. Any capable XML editor will be able to do it though. oXygen XML Editor can for sure.
An alternative to this is creating an XSL Transformation that converts the XML to an HTML document containing data in a table. This will be a development effort, of course.
After playing around with this, I may press the down arrow key to select the single item listed then press the enter key. It would be quicker to have the single item in the list already highlighted and selected. This would allow me to simply press enter to have the item added. This would be quicker than a down arrow key press first.
If I am pressing CTRL+SPACE, I am intentionally opening this pop-up. Is there a good reason not to highlight the first item for me automatically?
The version I am currently running does this today (19.3.0).
Simply select all text that you wish to sort followed by Edit|Sort and the specific sort option you want. I’m not sure how it handles partial rectangular selections (if at all).
In regular expressions, a carriage return is indicated by \r. \n is a newline character. This is standard everywhere. So, this is by design?
The C++ standard library implements regular expressions correctly, so in the worst case scenario, I could look into creating a plugin that does it.
Sorry — I posted this in the wrong forum. EmEditor Core Enhancement Suggestions is a better place for this thread to be.September 6, 2012 at 5:47 pm in reply to: EmEditor Becomes Unresponsive When Opening 129MB Unix Type TXT File #10532
Thank you for looking into this.
I was not aware that EmEditor auto detected comma delimited files.
