New in Version 14.6
October 21, 2014
This new version adds important features with big data analysis and database file editing in mind.
Enhanced CSV Features
With the new CSV/Sort toolbar, the new version gives you easier access to CSV related features and sorting options. You can quickly switch between CSV formats, and convert between CSV formats and Fixed Width Columns. You can access various colulmn/separator related commands, the Delete Duplicate Lines, Line Number, Ruler, and Heading commands.
Moreover, the new version allows you to define up to 8 CSV formats, and each format now allows up to 39 character long text. Each CSV format can be customized.
With the new Filter Bar, you can view only the lines that include a specified string. As you type the searched string in the Filter text box on the Filter Bar, EmEditor will begin searching the document and shows only the lines that include the searched string. Click the Abort button on the Filter Bar to cancel the filtering and restore the view of the original document. You can also easily change the searched string by clicking the Refresh button on the filter toolbar.
The Extract All button was added to the Find dialog box. Pressing the Extract All button extracts lines containing the searched string to a new document.
Other New Features
