New in Version 17.1

August 17, 2017

New General Features

  • Added the column header for CSV modes. Clicking on the column header or the ruler will select the specified whole column. Clicking the left edge of the ruler or the top part of the line numbers will select the whole document.
  • The Split/Combine wizards are now resizable even though the grip is invisible.
  • The new version allows you to display both the Minimap and the vertical scroll bar simultaneously.
  • The new version allows you to use the shortcut keys for Delete Right Word (Ctrl+Delete), Delete Word (Ctrl+Shift+Delete), and Delete Left Word (Ctrl+Backspace) in text boxes and drop-down list in many dialog boxes such as Find and Replace dialog boxes.
  • Improved the behavior when a pasted text contains newlines or delimiters during the CSV cell selection mode or vertical selection mode (see Notes below).
  • When the selection is not whole word(s) and the Match Whole Word check box is set in the Search page of the Customize dialog box, EmEditor will temporarily search for non-word strings when the Add Next Occurrence (Ctrl+R) or Select All Occurrences (Ctrl+Shift+A) command is executed.
  • Greatly improved the speed of Replace All when inserting newline codes while the Match Case option is cleared.

Notes

The new version improved the behavior when a pasted text contains newlines during vertical selection mode.

For instance, document A contains the following 5 lines:

Document A

while document B contains the following 5 lines:

Document B

You would like to combine these two documents.

In EmEditor v17.0.2 or earlier, you had to make a vertical selection in document B before you copy the text. In the new version of EmEditor, first, copy all the text in document B (select document B, press Ctrl+A to select all, and Ctrl+C to copy). Second, select document A, and make a zero-width vertical selection at the end of each line in document A (use the mouse to select while pressing the ALT key).

A zero-width vertical selection on document A

Finally, press Ctrl+V to paste the Clipboard contents to document A at the end of each line. The result becomes:

Result

The CSV cell selection mode would make this task even easier.

For instance, document A contains the following 5 lines in the CSV cell selection mode:

CSV document A

while document B contains the following 5 lines:

Document B

Suppose you would like to combine these two documents so that the result becomes:

Result

In the new version of EmEditor, you can simply copy the text in document B, select the first row of the third column in document A, and paste the text (press Ctrl+V).
