Thank you Yutaka!
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.
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.
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.
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)
Thank you for the input so far!
I would still very much appreciate a macro command for setting a column’s width, i.e. if its not too much work to implement in one of the upcoming releases.
This is something that bugs me to.
@Yutaka: Is there a macro command for setting a column’s view width?
I couldn’t find one ☹
Such a command would already help me to at least custom code a solution for this (@David: I’ll be happy to share the macro if that’s of use for you).October 11, 2018 at 3:26 am in reply to: Emeditor crashes when opening Western European encoded files #23818
Yippee – it works! 😃
Thank you Yutaka – fixed in no time 👍

Non Unicode Language setting
Email will follow shortly.
As far as I can see using a newline character other than the typical CR &/∨ LF combinations doesn’t seem to be possible.
However, you can write a macro to convert ÿ into CR LF and back again. Provided you aren’t dealing with >1 million lines and >10MB files, this should be pretty fast too.
Probably Spiros already knows, but if not (hope you get notified of follow up replies to this post):
Yutaka’s new Character count plug in is super fast and its ‘view line’ field shows the number of lines filtered.
Thank you Yutaka!
And btw: Also thank you for the DirectWrite implementation – I absolutely love it, the text is crispy clean and Emojis now work great too.
