Sorry, not done yet.
The cursor’s colour is set analogously by the “Selection” property (second entry from top on my installation).July 5, 2022 at 10:02 am in reply to: Question of Hightlight search results #28291
Tools → Properties for all Configurations → Display → Scroll way down and select “Search string” → Select the […] located next to the background colour combobox.

Yes, its displayed on bottom left part of the status bar:
Menu Bar → View → Status bar
The only annoying thing is that the Find/Replace dialogue will not show you the number of found strings, but it will show the number of replaced strings.
In contrast the Find (without replace) dialogue allows you to count the number of finds.
*) I’ll ask Yutaka if he could add the find dialogue’s count matches tickbox to the replace dialogue.May 28, 2022 at 1:09 am in reply to: crashes on lowercase / uppercase when the selection exceeds the line’s end #28211
Does not crash 😀
Looking forward to the next non beta update.
Many thanks!May 27, 2022 at 6:16 am in reply to: crashes on lowercase / uppercase when the selection exceeds the line’s end #28208

EmEditor will crashApril 21, 2022 at 5:17 am in reply to: UTF-8 without signature recognised as Vietnamese #28141
figured out a ‘solution’ for  :
Tools → Properties for all Configurations → File → untick “Detect all”
 might still be of interest for YutakaMarch 30, 2022 at 11:06 am in reply to: Extract each occurrence of a string into a separate line to build a list of URLs #28134
Arghh, stupid me
You can do this in one step
Find in files → Extract with Regex:
With the extract option display matched strings only
😴March 30, 2022 at 10:52 am in reply to: Extract each occurrence of a string into a separate line to build a list of URLs #28133
Figured it out:
First extract the lines via find in file
Then Find → Extract with Regex:
🙂March 30, 2022 at 10:29 am in reply to: Extract each occurrence of a string into a separate line to build a list of URLs #28132
You probably cannot do it in one step, but you would* be able do this in two:
and then Find -> Extract with the following Regex*
*there is a problem here:
The syntax above is not perl compatible
Does somebody know how to apply the /gU regex flag?
Would really appreciate thisJuly 7, 2021 at 9:46 am in reply to: EmEditor Clean Install #27579
With respect to: to fully replace Windows Notepad
Automatically setting file type associations under Windows 10 is no longer as simple as it used to be. Several other programs I use have also given up on this and EmEditor’s built in function also doesn’t seem to work on Windows 10.
My preferred approach to setting associations is by (text file example; ditto for .reg etc):
● Right click → Open With → Choose another app → Select your app (might require selecting the .exe’s location) + Tick “Always use this app to open .txt files”
it’s settings are all over the place and it doesn’t seem to have command line support for restoring them all at once
I’m not entirely sure whether you are referring to EmEditor’s “fresh out of the box” settings or your custom settings and toolbars.
With respect to custom settings and toolbars: I agree that backing these up and restoring these is a pain. Custom macros are even worse, so I would very much welcome a more streamlined approach.
With respect to EmEditor’s default settings: Hit ctrl+Q; type “reset all” → select the “reset all settings” command and execute “run this command”
Hope some of this helps.July 26, 2020 at 6:38 am in reply to: Custom TSV #26926

it might help to think of CSV, TSV,… as *SV i.e. each of them can be configured freely

Welcome to the regex kitchen stew (semi serious; regex seems to drive most people I know either mad or desperate or both)
Anyway one possible RegEx for finding 2 or 4 but not 24 is:
Which works on
To get an idea on what this does
finds either a or b, where
a = 2(?!4) finds 2 without a trailing 4
b = (?<!2)4 finds 4 without a leading 2
Note that I’m not a regex guru.July 3, 2019 at 12:28 pm in reply to: Multiple-line string as a search string in the Find/Replace dialog box #25939
I’m really short on time and its not the complete answer, but the regex for finding 2 or 4 is:
This will however, select only one of the characters at a time.July 2, 2019 at 9:24 am in reply to: On launch automatically open files that were open when last closing the program #25934

Interesting I haven’t got this behaviour.
Have you tried setting

to 0.0 seconds ?

Thank you Yutaka!March 23, 2019 at 9:44 am in reply to: highlight or marked "in" "for" "not" etc #25534
1) Select a configuration of your liking (Tools → Select Configuration → someConfiguration)
2) Select Tools → Properties for current configuration
3) Under Highlight(1) hit export.
This will give you an example file
refers to Tools → Properties for current configuration → Display → Specify part list → Highlight(1,2,3,… )
So much for starters. It will take some time to figure out how things work.March 13, 2019 at 11:06 am in reply to: Why a new line for a comparison? #25485
Thinking about it:
I might scribble a comparison macro which starts either Winmerge or Notepad++ from within Emeditor. Currently I’m too busy for this, though I’ll get back to this post should I ever find time to do this.
PatrickMarch 12, 2019 at 10:12 am in reply to: Why a new line for a comparison? #25483
The way I see it, this is intended behaviour.
Compare doesn’t indicate a new line. Instead it merely tells you that line 3 of Untitled-1 matches line 4 of Untitled-2.
TotalCommander’s and Notepad++’s compare behaves exactly the same as EmEditor’s.
Winmerge however behaves more like what your description of what to expect.
As you already started the topic of comparing:
@Yutaka: I know that its an horrendous amount of work, but Notepad++’s compare plugin is awesome. Would be cool if there were a way to implement something similar. Same goes for search, where NP++ also shines, but with respect to csv, large files and speed EmEditor is still way ahead. On the other hand, I can live quite comfortably with running EmEditor and the other two in parallel.March 10, 2019 at 9:11 am in reply to: Selecting Multiple Columns in CSV #25476
I admit its a bit wierd. For simplicity I’ll just give you one method, note that many variations exist.
Lets say you want to delete columns 2 to 5:
1) Single click any cell in column 2
2) Keep shift pressed
3) Single click any cell in column 5
4) Right-click on any column number (e.g the “5” of column 5).
5) Select / click “Delete columns”March 2, 2019 at 11:35 am in reply to: Search Functionality Improvement Suggestion: Allow Multiple Findings Highlighted #25453
No way to erase highlight on mouse leaving found text.
Out of curiosity:
How should this work? Move the mouse over highlighted text and out again?March 2, 2019 at 11:33 am in reply to: Search Functionality Improvement Suggestion: Allow Multiple Findings Highlighted #25452
And no option to clear the previous search on the next round automatically.
I don’t get this one. As long as the number of search colours is one, the previous search is cleared automatically.March 2, 2019 at 11:30 am in reply to: Search Functionality Improvement Suggestion: Allow Multiple Findings Highlighted #25451
Actually I’m surprised that non EmEditor’s highlighted string features are activated by default in your case.
on double-clicking text there is no feature that highlights matches
1) Tools → Customise Markers → Enable AutoMarker
2) To change the highlighting colour (also useful if enabling AutoMarker alone doesn’t work due to no colour being assigned to mark matches)
Tools → Properties for all Configurations → Display → scroll down to “Auto Marker” → change the text and background colour to your likingMarch 1, 2019 at 9:45 am in reply to: Search Functionality Improvement Suggestion: Allow Multiple Findings Highlighted #25442
Tools → Properties for all Configurations → Display → scroll way down to “search string” → change search colours on the right from 0 to 1 to however many colours for previous search results you could possibly want.
+ To erase the highlight
Search → Erase Find Highlight (shortcut Alt-F3 in my configuration)
