Software Update: RJ TextEd 15.52

Spread the love

Version 15.52 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. Since version 15.50, the following changes and improvements have been made:

RJ TextEd version 15.52

Vertical line at cursor position

Added an option in the view menu to “Show vertical line at cursor position”.

The line can be a dotted or solid line and is displayed at the current text cursor position. You can change the color and style in “Environment->Themes->Customize…”.

FTP Panel

Added a new right click context menu to the FTP panel that contains the following menu items:

  • Permissions – Change read/write/execute access
  • New file… – Create a new file and upload it to the server
  • New folder – Create a new folder on the server
  • Edit file – Download and open the selected file(s)
  • Upload current document to remote server – Save the currently open document on the server
  • Refresh – Reload the remote folder
  • Rename – Rename file or folder Delete – Delete selected files and folders

I also made some optimizations to speed some things up a bit and fixed a few issues.


  • Language display issue when opening document tab as an external window.
  • Heredoc highlight issue in bash documents.
  • External compare or remote files.
  • Issue when trying to open remote files several times.

RJ TextEd version 15.51


Add favorite dialog will ask you for both a name and a path.

Text comparison (text diff)

Made some visual changes in the row compare panel. Tabs and spaces should now be displayed to help see the difference between the two current rows.

Fixed a few issues.


  • Close document tab issue when tab is close to the right edge.
  • Maximize issues.
  • Open a session may close the program when certain options are enabled.
