BBEdit 13.5 released


BBEdit has been my "go to" tool for text editing for over 25 years. The latest release version 13.5 is a feature update and squashes a few bugs. BBEdit 13 requires Mac OS X 10.14.2 or later, and is compatible with macOS 10.15 "Catalina".

As you might expect the folks at BareBones this version of BBEdit runs natively on Apple Silicon.

Have you ever had the experience where you make a new document, put some text into it, and then later on, when you're closing it (either alone or as part of closing a bunch of documents), you click the "Don't Save" button? And then, an ohnosecond later, you realize you've made a terrible mistake?

Now BBEdit keeps a snapshot that can be accessed using the "Rescued Documents" item on the Window menu submenu. BBEdit will also do some housekeeping for you, if you like. By default it will clean up old data after a week, but you can adjust the interval from 1 to 365 days; or disable the cleanup altogether.

Added "Randomize order" as an option for "Sort Lines". If turned on, this overrides all other sorting options, and will generate a random ordering for all lines in the document.

"Markdown Cheat Sheet", this opens a floating window showing common Markdown constructions.

When running on macOS 10.15 and later, there's an additional command on the Window menu: "Move to [Display]", where "[Display]" is the name of an eligible attached display.
