Software Update: EditPad Lite 8.2.3

JGsoft has released version 8.2.3 of the free text editor EditPad Lite. This program is not intended for programmers, who should use EditPad Pro, RJ TextEd or Notepad ++. This is more of a replacement for the Notepad included with Windows. Unlike Notepad, EditPad Lite can open an unlimited number of files in the same window, it has no limit on the size of files to be opened, and the number of undos and redos is unlimited. EditPad Lite is free for private use, but companies can purchase a license if there is no need at all extras which the Pro version offers. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Bug fixes:

  • Edit | Delete Line now deletes the search term or replacement text when the small Search or Replace box has keyboard focus instead of deleting a line in the main editor; this is more consistent with Edit | Delete Line deleting a line in the search term or replacement when the multi-line Search or Replace box has keyboard focus.
  • File Types: Python syntax coloring did not highlight integer numbers containing zeros or any hexadecimal numbers (8.2.0 and 8.2.1).
  • Mouse pointer did not snap to the default button when this option is turned on in the Control Panel (8.2.0 and 8.2.1).
  • Preferences | Panels: Side panel colors were not correctly applied when using the dark theme (8.2.0 and 8.2.1).
  • When EditPad Lite 8 runs with administrator privileges it shows a red instead of a green icon; this icon now shows “Lite” instead of “Pro” at higher resolutions.
  • Windows 7 and later: If an error occurs when initializing the right-click menu of the taskbar button then EditPad now silently ignores that menu instead of showing an error message and failing to start.
  • Word wrapping at the window edge while using a left-to-right text layout with a monospaced font made lines too long if they were indented with tabs mixed with spaces that didn’t contribute to the indentation (because each run of spaces was shorter than the tab size setting).
