UltraEdit v23.20 Released: UltraEdit your way!
UltraEdit v23.20 includes one of our hottest features to date: editor themes. With a single click, change UltraEdit's skin, editor colors, and syntax highlighting colors to the look and feel that you want. As big as themes are, that's not all we've done... CSS color tooltips are a convenient new feature that will save web developers and designers precious time when creating and modifying CSS colors. Of course, no release would be complete without a performance installment; v23.20 delivers with greatly improved file handling performance from files 100s of MB large to files in excess of 10 GB in size! Navigation, file opening and parsing, scrolling, and more are all significantly smoother and more responsive with larger files in this release. Read on below for more...
New: Editor themes
Themes are an exciting new feature not because of what they can do but because of what you can do! Themes give you complete control of the appearance of the application, from menus to dockable panes, from toolbars and editor colors to status bar styling. Give it a try now and check out some of our predefined themes from the View -> Themes submenu!
Great job, stellar product, no doubt about it. Oh, BTW, thank you, thank you, for the new themes manager - what a great way to be able to customize for ease of use. Ultraedit continues to be my go-to editor for the tough jobs.
Use one of our many predefined themes, modify existing themes, or easily create your own in the Manage Themes dialog. Export and import themes to share them with friends or coworkers!
Editor themes give you the ability to skin the app from top to bottom to match your style and preferences. Even better - with editor themes, you can set your syntax highlighting defaults, and any wordfiles you add in the future will pick up your default colors to match your active theme! With themes, syntax highlighting settings are now stored with your theme - not your wordfiles - so you'll never need to worry about manually setting colors for new highlighting languages.
New: Environments Are Now "Layouts"; Easier to Use
For years, UltraEdit has supported multiple layout and profile configurations under the umbrella of "Environments". In v23.20, we've renamed this feature to "Layouts" and simplified and streamlined it by providing only 3 default configurations with more descriptive names.
Additionally, the underlying configuration mechanism for handling layouts has been updated to ensure that your customizations and changes are not overwritten as part of an upgrade or update. You can quickly change your layout on fly with the new layout and theme picker or use the redesigned Layout Manager dialog. (Your existing environments will still be available as layouts when you update to v23.20.)
New: CSS Color Tooltips
Want to change a color? No problem! Ctrl + Click on the tooltip and UltraEdit will open the Windows color picker dialog. Select a new color, click OK, and UltraEdit will insert the new color into your file!
Improved: Quantum leap in file handling and large file performance
You'll be amazed at v23.20's blazing fast file handling with smoother scrolling and instantaneous navigation - even from one end of a large file to the other - in files from 100's of MB to 10+ GB in size! Many large file edit operations such as selection, cut, copy, paste, etc., now complete in far less time than that of previous versions. You can also now monitor UltraEdit's progress loading and parsing large files in real time with the new parsing percentage indicator in the status bar.
Improved: Greatly expanded Artistic Style support
Never worry about manually reformatting or tidying your source code with the integrated Artistic Style feature. Version 23.20 includes expanded A-Style functionality with full support for the latest version of A-Style and the ability to include your own configuration files.
