BBEdit 12.1.2 Released


BBEdit 12.1.2 is a minor update to my favourite text editor.

From the release notes.

There's a new item in the Application preferences, as part of the software update settings: "Early Access". You can use this to turn on (or off) notification of pre-release maintenance updates for the version of BBEdit that you're using. (Note that even if you turn on Early Access, you will not receive notice of pre-release versions of feature updates or major upgrades.)

A new setting in the "Editing" preferences allows you to control whether tick marks appear in the scroll bar for Live Search matches. Turning this off can be useful if you're working in very large files and have so many results that the application stalls while trying to update the marks.

There are also a number of bug fixes including.

Fixed bug in which the Markdown tokenizer was confused by empty URL references (e.g. ) in such a way that editing in certain subsequent parts of the file would cause syntax coloring to get out of whack. This change also fixes a bug in the Markdown syntax coloring in which links with an empty description or URL were not properly recognized and colored.

BBEdit 12.1.2 requires Mac OS X 10.11.6 or later, and is compatible with macOS 10.13 "High Sierra"

I use BBEdit extensively for Markdown editing but there are a number of alternatives.
