Software Update: RJ TextEd 12.03

Version 12.03 of RJ TextEd has been released. This free Swedish-made text editor has several features, which are especially interesting for software and web developers, such as syntax highlighting, autocompletion, extensive selection and sorting options and an embedded (s)ftp client. The program is being developed for Windows, but can also be used under Linux via Wine. The changelog for this release looks like this:

Windows 10 Creator Update (and insider preview)

The program should run properly now. The theme (or VCL style) engine didn’t work properly so I’m currently using the original Delphi version.
System dialog theming is disabled (file open/save dialog windows…).
Using the original theme engine solves a few other issues as well and is generally more stable, though it lacks some features. For instance both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions now work on Linux using Wine.

Large file support

The editor should handle large files (> 2GB) better now using the 64-bit version.

word wrap

Optimized some functions to speed up word wrap. Especially when using large files.


  • Minor visual changes in the main program.
  • Minor visual changes in Syntax Editor.
  • External compare menu items are only visible if a compare tool is set in options.
  • Find/Replace dialog may open faster now after first use.
  • Both 32 and 64 bit versions run on Linux using Wine.


  • Case issue in file explorer highlight function when marking open documents.
  • Delete all in hex mode.
  • Save actions, eg remove trailing white spaces didn’t work in compare mode.
  • Code Explorer update issue.
