New in Version 17.5

February 27, 2018

New General Features

  • In the CSV selection mode, the AutoFill Option button now appears when the AutoFill handle is dragged. Clicking on this button will show the AutoFill Option menu where you will be able to choose the type of AutoFill, and to either duplicate the original value or increment the value with each cell.
  • EmEditor now determines the width of characters according to the “Unicode Standard Annex #11 – East Asian Width“. There is a new option to treat ambiguous characters as fullwidth.
  • Mitigations for DLL hijacking vulnerability. The new version has various new checks, which includes comparing digital signatures of EmEditor executables and DLL files.
