    Interesting I haven’t got this behaviour.

    Have you tried setting
    Tools → Customise Menus… → Delay time
    to 0.0 seconds ?

    Cheers

    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

    color=1,2,3,…
    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.

    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.

    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”

    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?

    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.

    Actually I’m surprised that non EmEditor’s highlighted string features are activated by default in your case.
    Anyway regarding:

    on double-clicking text there is no feature that highlights matches

    There is:
    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 liking

    http://www.emeditor.org/en/faq_view_view_find_highlight.html

    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)

    Hello Yutaka,

    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.

    Best regards,

    Patrick

    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).

    Hi Ken,

    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.

    Best wishes,
    Patrick
