EmEditor utilize the ‘Windows Script Host’, which in turn utilize JScript 5.7 feature set.
Even as WSH says it’s 5.8
jsV = ScriptEngineMajorVersion() +"."+ ScriptEngineMinorVersion(); alert(jsV); // 5.8
Note Starting with JScript 5.8, by default,
the JScript scripting engine supports the language feature set as it existed in version 5.7.
This is to maintain compatibility with the earlier versions of the engine.
JScript 5.8 introduced the following features: JSON object, JSON.parse method,
JSON.stringify method, toJSON method, defineProperty method, getOwnPropertyDescriptor method.
And further see: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19445189/cscript-jscript-json
and perhaps: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Script_Host
In CSV-mode, right click the column header
and choose “Select column,,,,,,”,
next press the DEL-key on your keyboard.
In EmEditor you can do such things by utilizing external command-line tools,
for an HTML Tidy example see e.g. https://www.emeditor.com/forums/topic/xml-without-line-breaks/
Tidy reads HTML, XHTML and XML files and writes cleaned up markup.
Also you can g00gle e.g. for “Artistic Style” (http://astyle.sourceforge.net/)
A Free, Fast, and Small Automatic Formatter for C, C++, C++/CLI, Objective‑C, C#, and Java Source Code
There are many of them.
Or search here the Library if there is a script already.
If you need help on Tool setup, just ask.
PSPad just utilize Tidy.exe
You can do the same with EmEditor. see e.g. https://www.emeditor.com/forums/topic/xml-without-line-breaks/
Also you can g00gle for “Artistic Style”
To replace “one colon followed by one-or-more spaces”
by “one colon followed by one tab character”

“modeless Quick Launch (Ctrl+Q) PLUS ‘Commands’ mode (Ctrl+Shift+C) PLUS typing [mac ]”
is a nice way to quickly execute one or even a few macros on individual test selections.
here are my observation on testing the beta3
– Jump now works even with disabled “Keep This Window Open”. Good work.
– I find this sort option useful, thanks for implementing.
– It do not work on *.jsee files, only if I save with *.JS extension,
Likewise possible the same for *.vbee?
– Works only on saved files and on files with the right extensions.
– The ‘symbol list’ is not updated on saving the document,
I have to re-open, or at least (temporarily) change the sort order.
Ahh, now! …there is a ‘Refresh’ context menu entry! Fine!
– Two or more functions with same name are listed only once. But I think all should be listed? No?
I would find it very useful to see also
the function parameter to look up quickly the need syntax:
function.Backup(strSource, strTarget, intOption)
I tried already with ctags options, but had no success:
– Enable Projects plug-in,
– right-click into Projects pane
– launch Tools >Properties for Current Solution Template, (this is named ‘default’ for me)
(or should I go “Tools > Solution Templates” and chose ‘Visual Studio’ ?)
– open Symbols tab
– modify “Additional Parameters to Ctags (advanced option)” field
-e –c-kinds=+defgpstux -R
Ohh, already a beta 4!?! … ;-) Fine! Thanks! I go taking a look………..
thanks for the beta 2! ….still an improvement!
But I also get this crash with beta2, if “Keep This Window Open” is NOT selected.
– open the file
– open Quick Launch Ctrl+Q
– do NOT opt for “Keep This Window Open”
– enter ‘@’ sign
– right click > Jump (or double click)
– EmEditor is crashing unexpectedly. We apologize for any inconveniences.
if “Keep This Window Open” -IS- selected, the Jump works! (good observed, FuzzyBear :-) )
the symbol list is sorted by you,…. I don’t know yet if this is fine or not….
… because the order is different from real order in file, and so the Jump is irritation (on my first tests)
Quick test of the new features….
The Quick Launch window allows you to enter ‘@’ to show the symbol list
That works for me only if I execute ‘SymbolList.jsee’ for this document right before.
It does nothing if I just open ‘Quick Launch window’ and enter a ‘@’ sign.
And then, ….
in ‘Quick Launch window’ I get only the list of functions,
but no functionality, like scroll the clicked function into view or like that.
So what is the sense of this particular feature? Sorry, I don’t get it ;-)
And, BTW, possible bug report:
If I close the ‘Quick Launch window’, sometimes also the EmEditor main windows loses the focus and gets hidden behind another window.
This was also with the last beta. I have not tried to get the cause of this behavior yet.
Thank you for making EmEditor.
Thanks for the new release and for the example macros.November 5, 2015 at 12:54 am in reply to: "Tools > Quick Launch" and eeCommon.ini > KeymapSearchHist #20460
The search histories in the Quick Launch window before you upgrade to v15.5.1 will not be restored.
Yes, this is fine.
However, you should be able to add new search terms.
Ahhhh, now at least I get it:
the history is only stored if you press the Enter-key
after you finished typing in your search term. ( of course :-( )
Since it is not necessarily to press enter,
as it searches on-the-fly, I never pressed enter before.
Sorry for the confusion!
The portable versions are not designed for speed.
Since you are all about speed, and EmEditor is the fastest Text Editor in the world,
I am sure, sooner or later you will be able to improve that part too.
That is why you should use the installer version.
All my tools are portable and that is the way I like it ;-)
So thank you for making and maintaining a portable EmEditor version!

better with 15.5.1, no more empty lines.
But only just the last search is stored,
not a list of last ten or so, as the big drop-down list implies.
Is this correct? Only one term kept in History?
– – –
Another issue, just FYI:
“Quick Launch” on portable mode is slow on search (takes ~ 5 seconds to display the results)
if I use my old eeCommon.ini:
eeCommon.ini | 890.812 byte | 30.10.2015 08:28 -a–
If I rename this INI and let EmEditor create a new one, the search is quick as expected:
eeCommon.ini-my . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .| 890.812 byte | 30.10.2015 08:28 -a–
eeCommon.ini-fresh-created-by-EE. . |. 21.439 byte | 30.10.2015 08:26 -a–
emed32_15.5.1_portable.zip | 5.467.636 | 30.10.2015 08:12 -a–
Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise; 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
Intel64 ~3301 MHz; RAM 8GB; Available 5.6GB; de;Deutsch (Deutschland)
I can disable ‘Start Window’.
But on opening EmEditor with an new Untitled document.
or on opening another new Untitled document in running EmEditor,
I can press the Arrow-down key on my keyboard to let the ‘Start Window’ appear.
a workaround would be to nevertheless disable the (automatically appearance of the) “Start Window”
(Tools > Customize… > [Window] > [Customize Start Window…] >> [_] Always show…… )
and use the Arrow-Down key instead to open it on your own on (empty / non-dirty) Untitled documents.
Perhaps that would be something for you and solve your problem with the Tray Icon?October 28, 2015 at 4:37 am in reply to: "Tools > Quick Launch" and eeCommon.ini > KeymapSearchHist #20439
Hmm, no more editing of my post allowed, so I continue here:
I had to add tabs into the empty lines in my above post, to make the forum software keep them.October 28, 2015 at 4:25 am in reply to: Automatically Name Untitled Docu: Pls, Increase taken string length to 99 chars. #20437
Works fine, both default ’80’ value and also adding ‘MaxNameUntitled=143’ to eeCommon.ini under ‘[Common]’ section.
Thank you for making EmEditor.
no, I can’t imagine what happens here.
I am not an expert, but I would close EmEditor and rename the Registry key of EmEditor
for example to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\EmSoft-problem\EmEditor v3\
to disable it for the moment, launch EmEditor again to see if there was any culprit in your settings.
If that brings you nowhere, delete the new created key and rename the old key back by removing that ‘-problem‘ string again.
Before if I select “word wrap”, the new file will be opened
as wrap characters/wrap window each time.
… but now, it opens as no wrap. don’t know the reason.
Worked fine on: EE ver14 64-bit version / Installed version
Got Problem since: ver 15.2, 64-bit / Installed version (noticed it, maybe even earlier)
Operation system: Win7 64-bit Pro
Tools > Properties All Configuration > [General] > “Wrap by” shows nothing.
After chosen “wrap by special characters”, open a new file, EE will dispay as what I selected.
However, the chosen property won’t be saved because closed and re-opened EE, the display became no wrap again.
If I chang other selections, all of them can be saved when closed and re-opened.
HTH? ( Best try with the brand new 15.5.0 release, see the Blog )
Good Idea, I like that too.
Also very nifty for quick saving a few ‘Untitled’ files without
overwriting the last one or thinking about another temp name :-)
My ideas about this topic:
Unsaved Label: | Untitled | Untitled # | First 10 signs from first line
Additionally I can imagine:
From Tab context menu: “Set tab Label” -> to individual user content
From Tab context menu: “Set tab color” -> sub menu with the ten markers colors to choose from.
Just some ideas.
Thank you for making EmEditor ;-)October 26, 2015 at 1:01 pm in reply to: Automatically Name Untitled Docu: Pls, Increase taken string length to 99 chars. #20431
Thank you very much for reply and improvement.
Now this feature makes much more sense to me.
If I go again into “Tools > Properties All Configuration >[General]”, the “Wrap by: ” field shows nothing. But it works by wrapping at 80 chars.
If I go into . . . . “Tools > Properties Current Configuration >[General]”, the “Wrap by: ” field shows “Specified Characters” as expected.
Me think the “Wrap by: ” on “Tools > Properties All Configuration >[General]” should show the current chosen setting too? Instead of nothing.
I think I found the solution .
Nothing to do with version or bittness, but possible wrongly use of configuration?
(Good example that’s always a good idea to provide
as much details as possible on such questions)
Tested on: 15.4.0 beta 2 / 32-bit portable on 64-bit Win7
Tools > Properties All Configuration
[x] Word Wrap
[_] Wrap after marks
[X] Wrap These Characters
Open a file with long lines.
The lines are NOT wrapped-up.
Tools > Properties All Configuration
Wrap by: Specified Characters
Open a file with long lines.
The lines ARE wrapped-up.
Now I only have to find out which options is for which purpose…..
Thanks for clarifying! To help the author locate that problem, he may have some more need for details:
Which was the EmEditor version and bitness architecture (32/64) this works for you?
Which version and bitness do you use now you got this problem with?
Do you have EmEditor installed or do you use the portable version?
On which operation system (XP/W7/W8/W10) ?
Thanks for your support.
Please excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is “””The wrap-up function””” ?
Can you point to some menu entry or help page please?
Or explain with more details and what you do.
Thanks.October 7, 2015 at 9:52 am in reply to: Option to adjust the Date/Time format (Edit > Insert > Time and Date) #20372
o.O Uhh? Who had guessed that ;-D
So I am going now to “Tools > Customize Menus…” > Main Menu > [+]-&Edit
and modify my menu from “Time and Date” to “Date and Time”….. (and there is even a default shortcut: Shift+F5 to insert Date/Time)
