    BUG: Clearing History toggles several Find toolbar buttons OFF. For example, enable the following Find toolbar buttons: Incremental Search, Search All Open Documents, Match Case, Use Regular Expressions, Use Escape Sequence, Match Whole Word, (and In the Selection only if Search All Open Documents is not enabled) then go to Tools > Customise > History and click on Clear History. Exit EmEditor and re-start it – All the toolbar buttons you enabled have been disabled.

    1. Bug is still present in 18.1.0

    One other suggestion – can you allow Find history to be cleared by right-clicking over Find edit box and selecting a new context menu item “Clear Find history”.

    2. Any chance this can be added ?

    3. There is also another UI bug I just noticed with the Find toolbar – if “Use Escape sequence” is toggled ON and you then toggle ON “Use Regular expressions”, the “Use Escape sequence” is automatically toggled OFF. If I then toggle OFF “Use Regular expressions”, the “Use Escape sequence” is automatically toggled back ON.

    4. Also, if “Use Escape sequence” is toggled OFF and “Use Regular expressions” is toggled ON, then clicking on “Use Escape sequence” does nothing. If you then toggle OFF “Use Regular expressions”, the “Use Escape sequence” is automatically toggled ON.

    Thanks for fixing this.

    When a zero width selection is made over multiple lines, only the last line has a flashing cursor. However, if some text is inserted so selection is no longer zero-width, you get a flashing cursor on each line of the multi-selection. Should there be flashing cursors on all lines of a zero width selection ?

    Hi Yutaka,

    Now EmEditor is at v15.1.5, and my suggestion for incremental text extraction still hasn’t made it into EmEditor yet.

    Any chance this can be added in the near future ?

    As already mentioned, I can’t believe it would be that much work given that EmEditor already contains most of the functionality. All you need to do is…

    – Allow Find and Replace dialogs (and Find/Replace toolbar) to output to Output Bar
    – If incremental Search is enabled, then any matches are added to the Output bar as you type. This is particularly useful if you’re using a regex, since it allows you to see exactly what will be matched with current regex, thereby helping you to create the correct regex.
    – If the user also has a replacement regex, then there should be an option on Replace dialog (or toggle button on FindBar toolbar) to extract the replacement text (useful when you use Regex to transform the matches into something else).

    There are some extra things that would be nice, but the above would be a start.

    If you still don’t understand what I’m after, I’ll put together a screencast showing a demo of another piece of software which has the kind of functionality I’m after in EmEditor.

    Please, Please, Please, can you add this feature ?

    Hi Yutaka,

    Any chance of this being added ? As mentioned, you can keep curent behaviour, and just make the new behaviour optional with one or two checkbox options.

    Ah, I didn’t see that. It’s not a bug then.

    However, as the exact same selection statistics are already shown in the status bar, can you remove the selection statistics from the Word Count plugin, and so make it only refresh automatically when the text has changed ?

    I have Word Count plugin enabled with pane on right side. The Refresh Automatically checkbox is enabled.

    If I then select text with the mouse, the green progress bar on the bottom of the Word Count pane redraws, as if it’s recalculating the Word Count statistics.

    As the Word Count statistics cannot change when making a selection with the mouse, the statistics should not be updated. They should only be updated when some text is inserted/deleted.

    I can understand you not wanting to change the current behaviour, but can you at least add two checkbox options to get this behaviour (or one if you don’t want to separate them). Just to clarify what I’m after:

    1) When on first/last line, pressing Up/Down cursor key will move to start/end of document. This is useful so you don’t have to switch from cusor keys for navigation, plus your suggestion of using Home/End keys is not always feasible when using a laptop which sometimes don’t have these keys.

    2) Using Left/Right Cursor arrows or clicking with left mouse on editor area will set the horizontal insertion positon (eg. character 50). Inserting a character, pasting text or using Up/Down cursor keys never changes horizontal insertion position (even when cusor moved to start/end after Up/Down cursor pressed on first/last line). For example, if cursor is on first line at character position 19 and I press right cursor key, the cursor and horiz insertion position changes to character 20. Pressing Up cursor moves cursor to start, but pressing down moves cursor to line 2 and horiz position 20 or end of line (whichever is less). Pressing Up cursor move curor back to first line and it’s also on horiz position 20.

    Above behaviour (1) is useful for navigation so you don’t have to move fingers off cursor keys, and some laptops don’t include Home/End keys as well. Above behaviour (2) is useful as you sometimes want to insert different text at same horizontal position on different lines. It allows you to simply type/paste, move cursor up/down and type/paste again, repeat as many times as you need.

    Dis-regard last bug report about filter bar buttons not remembering state. The latest beta 12 now remembers state.

    The new Refresh, Abort and Block the Multiline Changes buttons don’t have toolbar tips. Also, will you be chaning the graphics for the Refresh and Abort buttons, because they don’t look very polished.

    BUG: New Filter bar buttons toggle state not emembered. Enable all the buttons like Incremental Search etc., exit EmEditor and restart – all the Filter bar buttons will be togled OFF/disabled.

    The correct regex to use is actually

    background-color:#[[:xdigit:]]{3,6}

    Just had a need for the text extraction feature again that I have ben requesting – I had a CSS file which had been minimized so it was all on a single line and wanted to extract all the background-colors from it using the regex [code]background-color:#\d{6}[/code]. Obviously the new Extract matching lines feature didn’t work as the entire CSS file was on a single line.

    +1 I requested a similar enhancement myself.
