Plug-ins

Screenshot of Character Count pluginPlug-ins are optional additions to the core editor. They allow you to customize your workspace and increase your productivity. Plug-ins operate separately from the main program to keep EmEditor fast and simple.

 

These plug-ins come with EmEditor:

Explorer
Displays your folders and files in the sidebar to be able to access them quickly.

HTML Bar
A toolbar with macros for commonly used HTML tags and elements.

Open Documents
Shows all your opened documents in the sidebar.

Projects
Organizes source files into a project structure, and displays all variables, functions, and classes in the project.

Search

Snippets
Save strings or other context/input based templates to be able to quickly access them in documents.

Web Preview
A preview window for HTML documents.
