What are people saying about HippoEDIT

Jonas Surgion Hmm, an nice programmers editor with interesting features.
Working RegEx for multi lines search and replace.
Column edit to delete and/or enter text at all lines the same time.
Folding code, syntax highlighting, tools and help for every syntax.
(and all is customizing via XML (ini) files, no registry involved, fully portable stand alone? crazy, that's what *i* need)
I would give it an try...

JJ K A very very nice editor for coders,very elegant and powerful. I've already bought it at its normal price, but I don't regret it. The author answers very quickly in his forum, and above all, adds weekly features to HippoEdit.

Alexander Gapon to P Tirebiter Says:
HippoEDIT is lighter, has better outlining support, syntax definition is more powerful, so better syntax highlighting. More visualization features as display of block nesting, embedded syntaxes, current scope, inactive colors, color layering, color contrast control etc.
A lot of smart features (as smart comments, auto brackets, smart back space, surround selection)
Support of Code Hints and Code templates.
Hierarchy Bar, Overview Bar, Navigation Bar etc.

What is missing but planned for next releases (check forum) are:
Scripting support, macros recording, HEX viewer.

Of course this is not full comparison. If you have some more detailed questions - ask.

Thomas D I wanted a lightweight editor that has some features of an IDE.
That's IT.

I can't believe that I didn't stumbled upon it somewhere else earlier, but had to wait for it to appear on BDJ web which is not exactly where one would expect to learn about great programming tool.

What I like most about HippoEdit (after 2-3 days testing it) is how customizable it is, the bars (hierarchy, overview, navigation) - almost exactly what I was looking for in a new editor, syntax highlighting.
Overall I felt home from the first minute.

Van Swofford I noticed one of the features is keyboard schema. Is it possible to set up HippoEdit to emulate the vi editor? My fingers have been too well trained in vi. :^)
Apr 16 2009 at 10:06am Copy Link
0
Alexander Gapon to Van Swofford:

Yes, theoretically it is possible, for similar commands.

You can maintain any keyboard schema, have more than one schema, have more than one shortcut per command etc.

But till now there is no ready schema emulating vi. If you would prepare one, I can accept that as enough investment in HippoEDIT development to get a free license ;)

Jonas Schmidt Endlich ein Editor mit funktionierter RegEx Funktion!
Und der Spaltenmodus funktioniert auch besser als in anderen Editoren.
Besonders gefält mir das das Teil portable ist (USB-Stick geeignet)
Und das alles für 15 DOllar = 11 Euro? Kaufen!
Besser als alles was ich bisher ausprobiert habe.

yes, you can copy complete HippoEDIT directory to USB stick and it would work without installation - HippoEDIT does not use the registry and stores whole configuration in xml config files in application directory (customizable).

Frank Stephens When installing over a previous installation, check that all the features and options you want are being installed; newer versions may support more languages, etc. The registration key is mislabeled. It's not the stuff between the "Begin Key" and "End Key" lines, nor even including those lines. It's everything from the S/N line through the "End Key" line, including the dashes.

Hello, Kevin. Just answered to your mail.
I got crash dumps and see the problem.
Would try to solve it ASAP.

Sorry for this. I think reason for error is timing of background jobs. The version was tested, but it is not possible to check all PC + OS configurations. Maybe with your help I can catch that bug.

Alexander Gapon Hi All,

I would also like to say thank you to everybody has tried HippoEDIT and written feedback, positive or negative - both are valuable.
I got also some uninstall feedback, with reasons why HippoEDIT does not match needs which I can use for setting priorities for future releases.

For people have tried HippoEDIT and have some questions I would suggest to visit our forum, it already contains a lot of FAQ about the editor which you can check. Also this is a place to suggest and discuss future features.

Best regards,
Alex.

i am an big fan of it and use it all day.

You have to work a few weeks with an tool before you get familiar.

Robert Bauer I use my tools on many pcs, so is this editor "portable"?
And, I have tried your app and see it has a many great features
and is very fast, but i dont can find an macro tool, which i could ues from time to time. Can this be added as an plugin or so?
BTW, i was delighted to see the favorites for search and replace patterns, Great idea!, very usefull, and i alsosaw many such little gems there while playing around. But what i missing is an feature to add text in front of all lines, like put [TD] on pos1 of all selected lines.

Alexander Gapon Hi Robert,

sorry for delay with response.

Yes, HippoEDIT is portable. Here you can find details: http://forum.hippoedit.co...,21.0.html.

Scripting/macro support is topic number one for coming 1.50 release. Macro recording/executing would use same syntax as scripting. Here is details about scripting architecture:
http://forum.hippoedit.co...572.0.html

To put some text in front of lines you have several possibilities:
- use multi editing mode, select 0 column and type text you want
- use regular expression and Replace all (search for start of line)
- use Code Templates and tag %SelectedLine% then you can apply template for all lines in selection, so for whole document also

Stefan HippoEDIT Beta Tester Hallo Besucher,
ich selbst benutze HippoEDIT bereits seit einem Jahr und bin sehr zufrieden damit. Ich habe ihn immer auf meinem USB-Stick dabei und benutze an jedem Computer die selben Einstellungen ;-)
Er ist dermaßen flexible dass man damit schöne Tricks machen kann wie zB eine Art Intelli_-_Sence(TM) ToolTips für Keywords inkl. deren Optionen. Man kann Suchen&Ersetzen auch mit Regulären Ausdrücken (Regular Expressions, RegEx) und diese Suchen auch als Templates abspeichern. Auch der
Spalten-Editier Modus (Column Edit) ist einfach Klasse: eine Spalte selektieren und in allen Zeilen mit einem Mal das Selbe eintragen. Und dann... STOP, ich könnte noch stundenlang weiter schwärmen, würde allerdings kein Ende finden, da HE jede Woche weiterentwickelt wird.
Ich hatte früher Freeware Editoren benutzt, hatte aber immer Problem wenn man mal mehr als das "Normale" damit machen möchte (Die "PowerUser" bzw. Admins unter Euch werden wissen was ich meine ;-) ) Ständig hatte ich Probleme bei Operationen die über mehrere Zeilen gehen. Das lag nicht an den anderen Entwicklern, sondern and der verwendeten Editor-Engine (Freeware halt, == kein Geld für besseres)

Und einen Top Programmers-Editor für 10 Euro
15 US$ = 10,0671141 Euro (Stand So. 18. Oct. 2009)
werdet Ihr so schnell nicht wieder finden, oder was meint Ihr?

Antwortet doch mal mit Eurer Meinung, HIER muss man sich nicht anmelden!
(übrigens im HippoEDIT-Forum kann man auch ohne Anmeldung posten !!!111 ;D wenn Ihr möchtet)
P.S. dort bin ich mangels anderer Bewerber inzw. Mod und kann Eure Fragen gegebenenfalls auch auf deutsch beantworten.
Schaut doch mal vorbei und helft HippoEDIT NOCH besser zu machen.
Alexander ist sehr aufgeschlossen und für Verbesserungswünsche und Vorschläge immer offen.
Gefundene Fehler werden immer schnell behoben (JA! Fehler gibt es auch manchmal, aber, HEY! dies ist Version 1.4x und nicht 15.x ;D )

Thanks for the deal, your cheep price save me from using cracked text editor from rapidshare, which i was ever afraid for. now no more. I am not an programmer or coder or so, just now and then i need en editor allow me using block selection, or copy two blocks together. And also bookmarks and split view i like.

The license includes one year email technical support and free minor updates.
But license for 1.48 will also cover 1.5x (1.4x - 1.50 will be major update).
More details can be found here: http://hippoedit.com/order.php

The license is user dependent. So you can use it for installation on your laptop and desktop, for example.

thanks a lot for the feedback. I am very glad that HippoEDIT is useful and people like it ;) I will do my best to make it even better.

The engine for scripting is finished and now it should be filled with service objects and functionality. Now I am busy with spell checker plugin and will come back to scripting after finishing it. I will update 1.50 development version on forum then, that everybody can check what is already inside.

Best regards,
Alex.

Jean Sibe Which are the advantages of HippoEDIT when compared to other popular text editors, such as EditPlus, Notepad++ and UltraEdit? Basically I am looking for features which really "stand out".

Alexander Gapon Hi Jean,

the editors you want to compare with HE are very different and have weak and strong points: EditPlus is not really developed, but fast; Notepad++ is actively developed but has bad usability and slow; UltraEdit has tons of features, but in same time heavy and over-bloated of the stuff that 90% of users do not need. IMHO.

HippoEDIT has his own pros and cons: it is light, fast, has enough features for most power users and very user friendly (I think so). If there is a question to add new feature or make an existing one better and more comfortable, second choice will win.
HippoEDIT has one of the best on a market syntax definition possibilities, best code visualization, very good tools, project and search implementations.
There are some unique features, which none of mentioned editors has as: hierarchy and overview bars, scope nested levels for source display, column printing, code hints, smart navigate, a lot of formatting helpers (smart indenting, comments, case corrections), todo highlighting, scope highlighting, image and color previewers etc. There are really much more.

On same time, HippoEDIT does not have yet some features which have others: FTP client, HEX viewer and so on. They are planned, and will come after 1.50 as plugins.
You can find some comparisons of HE against other editors on forum: http://forum.hippoedit.co...t-editors/

Also there you can see what is not yet in 1.49 but comes in 1.50 (major release): http://forum.hippoedit.co...lpha-1-50/

Update from 1.49 to 1.50 is free.

It is worth to check forum if you need more information, it has already a lot of questions answered.

BR, Alex.

Stuart Henderson Hi Everyone,

I bought HippoEDIT at full price quite a while ago now and use it almost every day. I can't imagine not having it now. It is rock solid, highly customisable and (for me) is the closest thing to a perfect editor.

I was put on to HippoEDIT by the Scott Hanselman essential tools list :
http://www.hanselman.com/...ndows.aspx

If it's good enough for Scott Hanselman, its good enough for me.

If you work with text then HippoEDIT for $15 is a gift.

Patrick Germain Hi Alex,

I just gave HippoEDIT a try by playing with some of my HTML files (Web pages of mine). I was just wondering whether HE has editing capabilites for HTML tags. For instance when caret is in an img tag, can I get a dialog box that would allow me to browse for the image source, type alternative text, set width and height, etc.?

Many thanks in advance for your answer.

Paol Fisher Super price! I wish i had wait an another month before buying, but anyway this ed is worth the full price too. I have tested this and other editors several times and while i miss some things from HippoEdit i found it works the smoothish way it could be. I use it as my portable editor on my ThumpDrive and have all my settings with me. Here the great thing is that the registration is in an single license.dat file and works on all computers of my friends without an hassle. This is not one of that authors who thing all users are thief and badgering them with online-registrations or like that. And this author has invented several features i found afterwards by other editors too ;-). Since i didn't want to sign up an another forum i want to take the change and say "thank you" here. Great work.

Paol Fisher Thanks Patrick for remebering me about HTML:
An great feature of HippoEdit is "Past as HTML source code".
I use this often to copy the text from an webside including all the links and paste that as html code into HippoEdit where i remove java script code and modify links (to pics for example), then i preview the html page and print that as PDF. Great to save online tutorials. And i found an trick in the forum to select all between an html tag so it's very easy to select for example an whole script block to remove them.

Patrick Germain Thanks Paol. Interesting info but it still leaves my question unanswered. In other HTML editors, you can edit the inline tag as I described in my question. For instance when you create an a href tag, from the popup dialog box you can browse for the target of the link, add a title for it, select _blank or _top, etc.
Is it possible in HE?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Patrick,

there is no HTML tags editing possibility in 1.49.
I do not want to put language specific functionality in editor "core". But I am planing to have HTML specific plug-in (plugins comes with 1.50) and it will be possible to have something like this + html specific templates and formatting withing it. HTML specific stuff is highly requested, so it will definitely come.

BR, Alex.

Thanks for your reply. Your approach of not putting any language specific functionality into HE makes sense. I can understand it. So I will use HE as advanced text editor while waiting for the release of 1.50 version with plugins.

Stew Cam Another text editor fanatic here. There are only two real contenders for the crown of top text editor, HippoEdit and EmEditor. Both are great, but HippoEdit is that bit better. I also really like Notepad2, but that is another type of text editor altogether (minimalist Notepad replacement). Anyway, do yourself a favour and grab the HippoEdit deal!
Jun 10 2011 at 1:45am Copy Link
0
Alexander Gapon Thanks guys for warm words.

To, Stew: with 1.50 I have significantly improved startup time, and because of the module-plugin design it would be possible to get such minimalistic and fast loading tool as Notepad2. The only disadvantage can be is that HE is more than one file.

To Stanley: it is difficult to compare, editors currently very complex and powerful tools with tons of functions, and to compare you need to look at that set of function which you need.
I have already gave a small review of Ultraedit before (in my answer to Jean), but can repeat:
UltraEDIT has more functions as HE, but it is slower and more heavy. Coding visualization in HE is better, customization is more powerful and, I think, usability of HE better. HE has one of the best support of mixed sources (when several syntaxes used in same document) and very powerful syntax definitions.

James Kenney I just went to buy HypoEdit and cannot find the paypal link...
If it correct that you cannot buy HypoEdit with paypal?




To Stew:
Have you tried Notepad++ ??? If so, what do you like about Notepad2 better than Notepad++?




P.S.I am SO glad you have block editing in this program!
I usually load up pEdit(the old DOS editor that I bought over 20 years ago IIRC!!!) to do that sort of thing. Amazingly I still works will in WinXP, though I have not tried it in Win7. I think it was one of the first unlimited(except for HD size) text size editors made for DOS.
I THINK that is is free now(though it may just be abandonware), as http://www.goldshell.com/pedit/ seems to indicate that is is free.
It is not in competition with your program of course, as it is not a programming editor... Hmmm It looks like they have ported it to windows now...


Any way, hope to get a response about paypal, as I will need to dig up another source of payment if you do not accept paypal.

Alexander Gapon Hi James,

yes, PayPal is disabled on ShareIt for HippoEDIT. We have experienced several problems with PayPal payment, when PayPal did chargeback, for a some only PayPal known reason, without contacting customer, and this leads to blacklisting of the customers on ShareIt. If you have no other option for payment, write to salesbox at hippoedit with request, and I will send you PayPal account you can use for direct payment. Of course with deal price.

Mike B HippoEdit is a great value at this price. One thing to consider in a comparison between HippoEdit and UltraEdit is that UltraEdit has moved to an online activation licensing scheme in the latest version.

I know that the BDJ community has a vocal anti-activation contingent, and I don't want to drift this thread into that conversation, but I'd think many people would consider this a plus for HippoEdit over UltraEdit.

(Disclosure: I'm a licensee of both HippoEdit and UltraEdit and several other editors...).

I have not planned CSS specific plugin yet, but can evaluate that, depends on demand.

About automatic preview, you can just press F12 every time to switch to preview window (from code) and it should refresh. As workaround. And for real time preview in 1.5x planned web previewers plugin with server configuration support.

I remember to used them too with my admin tool-set back at this days.

@Mike B
"online activation licensing scheme"

That's what i wanted to say above. HippoEdit is here much more user-friendly by trusting his honest customers.
Fighting against crackers is impossible anyway but it's very easy to disturb and disgruntle the honest buyers with online activation.
So i was very glad to see that is no problem with HippoEdit. (Thank you Mr. Gapon) i can simply use HE portable on all computers i have to work on!!!

-

Now that for what i was come back here:

I wanted to add that an another great feature i use often is "column mode editing", (or called "zero-width selection" too as i learned now).

With that feature i can make an vertical selection over several lines and then add text (e.g. "/ br") to all selected lines at once.

I don't know how to describe this well in english words, but have found that there is an video (or some more) at youTube which shows how this feature works. Just search for HippoEdit.

Jonathan Keener Hi, I'm a happy HippoEDIT user, and I purchased through bitsdujour back in October 2009. I was curious about the upgrade policy, as on this site, under the policy tab, it states 12 months of free upgrades. However, I was just able to update to the 1.49 version without a problem today. Also, the information on the HippoEDIT site specifies:

Free minor upgrades (e.g., 1.0 - 1.1).
Discount for major upgrades (e.g., 1.0 - 2.0).

so I'm assuming the hippoedit.com site is correct, so that when 1.5 comes out, I'll be eligible for the upgrade based on my 2009 purchase. (If not, I'd be considering making another purchase here so I would be eligible)

Alexander Gapon Hi Jonathan,

honestly there was no any paid upgrade for HippoEDIT from first version. All keys are suitable for recent versions. I am not planing to change this for switch to 1.50. So in your case you do not need new license, you can reuse old one.

But I can not promise, that it will stay this way always. So, there is an official note on website that keep me in safe position, if upgrade politic will change to "official" way.

Generally I can not give you wide comparison but some pros which I see just after checking of WebBuider screenshot. HippoEDIT has:
- hierarchy bar, displaying you code/tag hierarchy
- overview bar, with indicating of source parts, errors, search results etc.
- Smart Highlight, which does smart search of word occurrences with according to context
- Code Hints, giving you best guess suggestions when you type etc
- Richer syntax highlighting for mixed languages code, with context dependent functionality
etc.

From another side, HippoEDIT is generic text editor, not optimized for web development, so some of functions available by default in WebBuilder should be added as external tools. Es example can be built in FTP Client.

- The license you get here on Bits Du Jour is a FULL license. There are no limitations or differences to standard HippoEDIT license.
- The license is valid as for released 1.49 as for upcoming 1.50 (next major release now in beta testing).
- The license is user bound, not computer/PC dependent. You can use on your Home, Office PC or laptop.
- If you miss some feature, check what comes in 1.50: http://forum.hippoedit.co...lpha-1-50/ . You can even try it, but avoid productive usage – it is still in beta stage.
- HippoEDIT can run portable. Select corresponding option during installation and choose as target location your USB drive or DropBox/SkyDrive folder.
- PayPal payment option for HippoEDIT is disabled on ShareIt (there were reasons for that, see old comment). If you have no other option for payment, write to salesbox at hippoedit with request, and I will send you PayPal account you can use for direct payment. Of course in this case also deal price works.

But it is planned for 1.6x. together with new UI lib.

And about tricky stuff. If you notice something that you think can be done better, post it on forum or write me a mail and this is very probable that if idea is valuable, it would come into next beta. I am always open for good suggestions ;)

Alexander Gapon Hi Overt,

you not the first asking this questions, so do not mind that I just copy my old comments here. They are still valid and difference is just bigger now because of the new features developed in 1.50:

"HippoEDIT is lighter, has better outlining support, syntax definition is more powerful, so better syntax highlighting. More visualization features as display of block nesting, embedded syntaxes, current scope, inactive colors, color layering, color contrast control etc.
A lot of smart features (as smart comments, auto brackets, smart back space, surround selection)
Support of Code Hints and Code templates.
Hierarchy Bar, Overview Bar, Navigation Bar etc.

What is missing but planned for next releases (check forum) are:
Scripting support, macros recording, HEX viewer.

Of course this is not full comparison. If you have some more detailed questions - ask.

UltraEdit has tons of features, but in same time heavy and over-bloated of the stuff that 90% of users do not need.

I have already gave a small review of Ultraedit before (in my answer to Jean), but can repeat:
UltraEDIT has more functions as HE, but it is slower and more heavy. Coding visualization in HE is better, customization is more powerful and, I think, usability of HE better. HE has one of the best support of mixed sources (when several syntaxes used in same document) and very powerful syntax definitions."

Stefan Beta tester What is better then UE? Just try both. Here are *my* test result:

At first and the most important: HippoEDIT has No activation with hardware footprint as UE has. If you buy HippoEDIT, it's yours. You can copy and us it on all your hardware and even carry it on an thump drive.

Second: HippoEDIT have much better column mode support then any other editor and even better as with UE!

Third: HippoEDIT interface is more clean (and prettier, IMO).

HippoEDIT has the most advanced selections feature i have seen, including "Restore Selection" and "Sticky Selection" (here called "Lock")

HippoEDIT was the first editor with visual/colored marks of modified lines. And also the first with Favorites for the search&replace dialog. UE have seen that by HE first.

In the future you will be able to script your own features with an handful different scripting languages (see 1.50 beta) and not only with JavaScript as with UE. If you are familiar with Python? Pretty fine.

With HippoEDIT you have different syntax files instead one file with many styles. And you can even inherit an syntax from an other. (e.g.: default.syn C.syn C++.syn)

HippoEDIT has some little but nifty features like:
* an filter in options dialog to quicker find what you search.
* the same with keyboard shortcut dialog (e.g.: see what Shift+F2 will do)
* insert web side copy as original HTML code.
* some hint dialogs: an build-in Cheat-Sheet for all shortcuts and features.

Sure, UE has many features HE doesn't. But HE is v1.5, UE is v?
And the most features i don't miss anyway ;-)

Alexander Gapon Hi All,

Some introduction info that can help:
- The license you get here on Bits Du Jour is a FULL license. There are no limitations or differences to standard HippoEDIT license.
- HippoEDIT can run portable. Select corresponding option during installation and choose as target location your USB drive or DropBox/GoogleDrive folder.
- If you look for some feature or syntax highlighting for your favorite language, but cannot find it the menu, check available plugins: Tools->Options->Plugins (select needed in the list), available syntaxes Tools->Options->Syntax Settings (check needed) or use Update Manager Help->Check for Updates… The easiest way to get needed syntax schema is to just open the source code file of corresponding language: HippoEDIT will check by itself if syntax schema is available online and will download it for you.
- Comparison of the HippoEDIT with other text editors you can find in old comments or on forum http://forum.hippoedit.co...t-editors/ (not really up-to-date but better than nothing ;) )
- HippoEDIT has only English user interface. The localization is planned for 2.0 version.
- If bought HippoEDIT and did not get the license in 24 hours, maybe license email is caught by your spam filter. If you are sure not, leave a comment of forum, and I will send you the license in private message:
http://forum.hippoedit.co...cense-key/

Mark Johnson The writeup above states,
"HippoEDIT is the Alex Rodriguez of text editors, and by that you know EXACTLY what I mean ;-) "

Having no idea who Alex Rodriguez is, I had to turn to google to see what that meant. The first hit was "Alex Rodriguez peed on my floor, he is the devil", and the next was an article talking about him being suspended for drugs for the entire 2014 baseball season.

I guess I'm not so sure what Derek Lee means, but I definitely don't know EXACTLY what he means.

Ralph Bressler I am glad I tried this one first! I installed the program and it IMMEDIATELY gave me an error TWICE without ever running correctly. Further attempts to get it to run failed. I am using the 64-bit version on Windows 7. I use Ultraedit which has been great for me but I thought I would give this a try. I can't understand why a text editor would have these problems. I guess its not a problem for me since I have Revo to uninstall it! Too much bother.

Jason Howard HippoEDIT - text editor on steroids...

I guess the "Alex Rodriguez" analogy really falls flat to everyone unfamiliar with North American baseball stars... which is most people.

I've used HippoEDIT since April 2010 as my primary text file editor. I find it extremely customizable - with color schemes, keyword highlighting, code completion, macros, and lots of plugins.

Both the hippoedit forums and wiki have documentation on extending Hippoedit to meet your requirements.

The developer Alex, is very helpful when I have had questions - but usually the online doco is more than adequate as a learning resource.

Ralph Bressler I am glad it works and works well for some/most people. I have installed more editors than I care to admit and this is the first one that has given me a problem. I read the "fixes" and decided it wasn't worth my time to try to debug something I really didn't need. Its too bad it didn't even work once correctly so that I could check out all the great features people have mentioned.

Just installed the 32-bit version and it works. At first glance I don't see much that would pull me away from Ultraedit. Any comparison would be helpful.

Alexander Gapon Hello Ralph,

first of all, sorry for the inconvenience with x64 version. Believe I will never publish something that is by default does not work. There is some environment conditions on some system that lead to crash of the x64 installer now. I am analyzing this and definitely that this will be fixed. A lot of HippoEDIT users running x64 version and would like to do it further. HippoEDIT 1.60 was released last days, especially that people on BDJ can try newest features, but unfortunately that x64 bug appears.

About editor text editor choice - it is matter of taste. Nobody force you to buy/use HippoEDIT. BDJ action is only a chance for ones, who likes the product, to get it cheaper than usual. But if you do not see the need in it, you can save 15$ ;)

The difference between UltraEdit and HippoEDIT already was discussed in older comments (you can check that). Briefly you get faster and lighter editor with better usability (IMHO), better code visualization possibilities (UltraEdit features + colored braces and indent guides, alternating mode, nesting mode, style layering, end scope annotations, code hierarchy, scope exits) + editing functionality as code hints, code templates, perfect tool and script plugin integration etc. + better FTP + faster and better search + powerful overview bar and so on. You can find more on wiki.

BR, Alex.

Amit Looks a very good software, though it has a glitch, that is annoying. If you can please provide the solution for it and remove it, then I will be buying 2 licenses absolutely. Its that when the cursor is at any given position, say position1, and you want accidentally click on somewhere else on the opened workspace of any file opened in the software, the cursor moves to position2 (where my mouse clicked). So, whatever I would have wanted to paste at the position1, gets paste to position2. To sum up, Just want that the cursor doesnot change position if I click somewhere else in the software.
Please fix this soon in the software, and if this is confirmed here by response, to get a fix soon, I will buy 2 licenses at this deal.

Thanks.

Alexander Gapon Hi Amit,

to be honest - I did not get you :/ The behavior, as you have described, standard for most of the text editing software on Windows (Notepad, MS Word etc). If you do mouse click on text in same document the caret position is also moved. If you click on some UI element outside of the document, caret position is kept.

Do you think about the mode where caret is only moved by keyboard commands but not by mouse (left mouse click)?
Do you know some example text editor that works as you expected?

Alexander Gapon Hi Amit,

OK, I have verified with Notepad++ (default settings):
- I open a text file ~10 lines long
- Set caret on line 1 col 1
- then did left mouse click on line 5 col 1 (the same happens on right mouse click)
- the caret has been moved - same way as in HippoEDIT

Has I described the behavior you do not like?
Is there any special option in NP++ which control that?

I am very happy that you would like to buy 2 licenses, but to fix something, I need to be convinced that it is a bug ;) And at least understand the use case.

Lito This is an excellent editor especially for editing source code. I highly recommend it.

Alexander: I think (if I am understanding him correctly) what Amit is looking for something like a "double click to change cursor position with mouse" option in the editor. That way he can click anywhere in the editor without moving the cursor position and only move the cursor if he specifically double clicks a position.

Amit: I tried this in both Notepad++ and Axelpad both latest versions and I cannot reproduce what was initially described. Are you talking about positioning the cursor then going to another application copying some text then clicking back in the editor and pasting it in the position you had originally placed the cursor? If so I think that was a windows focus bug and it is suppose to work as it is now. IIRC the bug is when windows changes focus the initial mouse click only brought back focus to the application (like the a text editor) and the actual mouse click did not send the left mouse click message to the application.

Alexander Gapon Hi Lito,

thanks a lot for the feedback!

Yes, I also have understand the use case same way as you: it is an activation click on coming back to editor after selecting something in another app. In this case, such problem appear only, if activation is done by clicking on inactive editor window directly but not when clicking on taskbar icon or if switching with keyboard. But still even in this case the workaround may be to click not on text editing area but some where on UI elements as toolbar or tabs.

I can try to "eat" the left mouse click on non-focused view, but I am afraid, because it is not a standard behavior, I may got even more complains from users that expect it as in other apps...

BR, Alex.

Gary Smith I must admit I was confused too when I first read Amit's preference for mouse click action. I understood that anywhere I click in the text window, it will change the cursor location as well. Before the later comments showed up, I tried it in an older versions of Akelpad, then updated to current version (4.9.4) and tried again, and in both cases, Akelpad changed the cursor location to the mouse click location. I had the same experience with an older version of Notepad++ and with a current version. I duplicated the same behavior in HippoEdit. Having a few portable versions of editors, I decided to try some out(Brackets, CodeLobster, EditBone, Editplus, EmEditor, HapEdit, KompoZer, LightTable, Notepad2, Programmer's Notepad, PSPad, RJEdit, Scintilla, Sublime Text, Subpad, SynWrite, TotalEditPro). All worked the same.

After reading the later comments, I understand the issue might be when returning focus to the editor by clicking inside the text area; I realized the issue clearly. That is why I always have to click on the area outside the text area if I am changing focus back to the editor (and that is a hassle). I recalled encountering this issue before, even remember seeing the setting to ignore the first mouse click for something, so I retried all the editors I tested previously again. I could not get Akelpad current version to ignore the first click when changing focus back, nor can I find an option that would change its behavior. The other editors were still working the same as well, but then I found one that didn't. BDV Notepad 5.2 (current version) eats the first mouse click. Then others, GlassNotepad, MetaPad 3.51, SuperNoteTab 2.63. Wow; what a nice find that was. I didn't lose my cursor location. It is actually very handy when it works this way because now a larger area can be used to switch back to the editor without fear of changing the cursor location. I don't know why most others editors do not work this way or at least offer it as an option. I have a much larger group of text editors on another computer, so I will have to give it a try to see if any others can handle this without losing the cursor position.

I couldn't recall where I saw the option to ignore the first mouse click, but finally found the feature in other applications from a web search ("Ignore first mouse click"):

CRiSP Version 8.0.3c March 2002
Fix mouse focus mode to ignore first mouse click in a window gaining focus.

Programmers File Editor:
Under Preferences, General Options: Ignore first mouse click moving between windows. The Help section explains:
The Ignore first mouse click moving between windows box lets you change how PFE uses the mouse to move control between edit windows. By default, the first time you click the mouse within a edit window PFE activates the window, but does not move the caret to the position clicked on or action a scroll bar move. If this box is checked, the caret position is changed on the first click in the window.

My setting was clicked, probably the default. In my test, I found that it works when switching between different windows inside of PFE, but not if switching from a different application back to PFE. Too bad, because an application that has the option I would like to see works only within itself.

Other applications have considered the ignore first mouse click a nice option; let's hope others do too.

I agree with Alex that some users might complain if the behavior is changed since most editors do behave in the same way, however if it were in the options to work one way or another, I believe I would have it set to ignore the first mouse click when changing focus back to the editor.

I strongly suggest to Alex that you consider this, not for the potential purchase of 2 editors but for the many others that might really appreciate you giving THEM the choice.

Amit Sorry guys, I am a little late to respond and thanks to Alex, Lito, and Gary for detailed thinking about my request. I want to say I did not explain my problem a bit clearly. it's like that when I have the cursor position at say position1 in the software, And then i right click on anywhere else in the file opened in the software, then the cursor position changes in the software to the position where i right clicked and then whatever i paste anything (after right clicking using paste then), the pasted contents get pasted to this position.
Or you can just check this - left click anywhere on the software's file opened, and then right click anywhere else on the opened file, and the cursor position changes. So just want this annoyance to be corrected. Alex if you can just look into this little thing even in near future would be very useful for me and i would be buying certainly.

Doug Price Hi HippoEDIT,

I need a text editor to handle very large text files, say 100MB, overwhelmingly numeric only.
For me
1 Column select is important, and I think you can do that. Select/move, arithmetic operations on the column? Is this OK?
2. Very large files, (I have 16G)
3. Is there a line length limit?
4. Macro define and run?

Gary Smith Thanks for clarifying Amit. I retested the editors using the right click method and found most do change the caret with the right click and that the same editors that ignored the 1st click when changing focus back did not change the caret position for a right click elsewhere in the document, except for BDV Notepad. I agree with Amit that I prefer this method, and would like to see it as an option the user could choose. It would make it a lot easier to do right click pastes.

Alexander Gapon to Gary:

thanks a lot for VERY comprehensive analysis! Real great work. This is a way I like to get feature request: detailed feature description and analysis + comparison with other implementations. With such style you are very welcome on HippoEDIT forum - I will review all your requests with a pleasure :)

About your/our request (because we already know that Amit requested something else ;) ) . I think it makes sense to implement it but in most disruptive way at first: do not change the caret position on left mouse click on edit area of non-focused view. Here I see some small possible problems as:
Technical - it may happen, that I get left mouse click event already after focus set event... Maybe challenging to catch it...
Usability - it is OK to not change the position of the caret on first click on non focused view, if caret already in visible area... But if it not, it may be confusing, especially for users that have not used the feature yet...
Probably I will try to add it in new 1.60 builds and see how it will work. I do not plan any UI switch for functionality, but will allow to control it with XML flags (this is a regular way for not very often used switches).

Alexander Gapon to Amit and Gary about caret move on right click:

for this request I am not convinced:

The right mouse click calls a Context Menu, which is related to current, sorry, context under them mouse cursor. The state of it is different depending on where you click. The exact position to which context of the menu relates, indicated by cursor position. So, for me this is not a bug, which requires fix, but the design decision.
Imagine the situation with scrolled out window, where caret position is not in visible area and you call context menu by right click on text area without changing caret position. So, the content and state of the context menu will relate to scope that is not visible and this would be very confusing and for me incorrect.
It is not about implementation effort but about design and usability.

Amit for your scenario there are workarounds: use toolbar icon or shortcut. If you only like to call Paste from menu. You can call it with Ctrl + F10, but not with right mouse click. If it about scenario with return to non-focused area, you can use feature with ignored first left mouse click.

Alexander Gapon to Doug:

to be honest, with your requirements, I do not think that HippoEDIT is editor of choice for you. Maybe only because of the discounted price now.

HippoEDIT can edit large files - 100 MBs is not a problem. But size of files is limited by system operating memory - HippoEDIT does not use way with memory mapped files, when only some part of the file is loaded. HippoEDIT is optimized for source code files, and parsing the whole document content for suggestions and proper syntax highlighting, but not for loading huge plain text logs, where mentioned features are not so important. At least now.

If you need text editor that can handle huge files (>= 4GB) you can try EmEditor - I know it can handle them.

Detailed:

1) Column select exist, also for whole document range (when you operate on horizontal ruler). Select/move exist as built in operations, arithmetic functions as java script plugins (here may be performance problems, but have not checked that yet on such big files).

2) Very Large Files (16Gb) I am afraid not, if you do not have at least 32 GB of RAM :)

3) No. There is no line length limits, even for syntax highlighting. HippoEDIT can handle megs long lines.

4) Yes. You can record/edit/run macros + there is rich scripting API in various scripting languages for advanced actions. Also there is a converted from macro to a script.

Alex

Paula Noah Hi Alex

Just read about v2.0 on forum -
http://forum.hippoedit.co...edit-2-00/

Here are some lines from number "3".

(There will be LifeTime license, which will be valid for all next minor/major version without any limit to time of purchase (the mode which was unofficially active till now). LifeTime version will cost more than Standard version. All licenses purchased before publication of HippoEDIT 2.00 will be treated as LifeTime licenses.)

So if I'd buy Hippo from BDJ, my license will turn into lifetime when 2.0 out. Am I knowing right?

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

Alexander Gapon Hello Paula,

yes, it is right. All licenses that will be sold until 2.0 release is published are already LifeTime (technically) - you would be able to register any version of HE with it. From 2.0 there would be a choice which license to buy.

To be honest, the topic your read on forum shall be visible for registered users only - for some reason I have forgotten to assign the access rights and it is now visible for everyone :) Will correct it after BDJ action, while your already mentioned it :).

Alexander Gapon to J S on Question 1:

HEX editor planned. As plugin with minimalistic HEX viewer/editor possibilities. But when... I can not tell now. Honestly, I have doubts that I will be able to add it next 12 months - there are some other features, with more priority, in pipeline before.

Alexander Gapon Hi All,

As usual, some introduction info that may help:
- The license you get here on Bits Du Jour is a FULL license. There are no limitations or differences to standard HippoEDIT license.
- HippoEDIT can run portable. Select corresponding option during the installation and choose as target location a folder on USB drive or DropBox or GoogleDrive.
- If you are looking for some feature or a syntax highlighting for your favorite language, but cannot find it the menu, check available plugins: Tools->Options->Plugins (select needed in the list), available syntaxes on Tools->Options->Syntax Settings (check needed) or use Update Manager Help->Check for Updates. The easiest way to get needed syntax schema is to just open a source code file in corresponding language - HippoEDIT will check by itself, if syntax schema for it is available online and will download it for you.
- Comparison of the HippoEDIT with other text editors can be found in old comments or on forum http://forum.hippoedit.co...t-editors/ (not really up-to-date but better than nothing ;) )
- HippoEDIT has only English user interface. The localization is planned for 2.0 version.
- If you bought HippoEDIT and did not get the license in 24 hours, maybe license email is caught by your spam filter. If you are sure it is not, leave a comment of forum, and I will send you the license in private message: http://forum.hippoedit.co...cense-key/
- You can find a lot information and already answered questions on HippoEDIT forum: http://forum.hippoedit.com and on HippoEDIT wiki: http://wiki.hippoedit.com

Best regards,
Alex.

However: your website says: Free minor upgrades (e.g., 1.0 -> 1.1).
BDJ says: Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for 12 months.

I suppose BDJ needs to make some changes to the fine print then :)

Great software! Thanks.

Alexander Gapon @Ennovy: Probably I will better update the web site ;) Minor are always free, even if they published after 12 month from time of license purchase. But you are right it is not clear for major update coming in next 12 month after purchase. I think, it would be fare, to let user upgrade to new major version, if it released in first 12 month after purchase. And I guarantee that here :) Once can refer. And also will update web site soon.

But even without the statement above, unofficially, all HippoEDIT licenses already given (and which one can purchase now) can be used with any version of HippoEDIT. I am sure, here are a lot of existing HippoEDIT users that confirm this ;) But from version 2.0 it will change to a way as it described on web site.

J S Hi Alex, in your very fulsome answer [... commentId=111784] You've said in part "... - HippoEDIT has only English user interface. The localization is planned for 2.0 version. ..."

To follow on from my original question [... commentId=111710] about an occasionally requested Hex-Editor/Viewer plug-in:

Question 2: When is version 2.x planned to replace version 1.6 or should I say 1.x?

Reason for asking: I would just like some indication of how long the existing version has to run before it is superceded by version 2.0. As the full license only has 12 months of free updates and support, before the user has to pay a discounted fee to extend their version 1.x license. I am only basing this question on Bits Du Jour's "The Fine Print" tab for the current Hippoedit Deal - which is presumably an accurate reproduction from Hippoedits own license conditions.

Finally:
I appreciate you may not be able to reply to this before the 24hour Deal expires. HOWEVER I would appreciate a written reply here in due course.

Alexander Gapon @JS: HippoEDIT 2.0 is planned to be a next major version. May be there will be 1.6X minor updates before (new 1.60 builds, with bug fixes, I publish regularly).

When HippoEDIT 2.0 will be released, I do not know yet. May happen in more than 12 month. But registered users have an access to latest alpha builds and are always informed about current state and plans.

License for 1.6X will be still valid for 2.0.

- The license is valid as for released 1.60 as for upcoming 2.00 (next major release now in alpha testing). Registered users can download it on the forum.

- HippoEDIT can run portable. Select corresponding option during installation and choose as target location your USB drive or DropBox/SkyDrive folder.

disenchanted Alex,

Thanks for posting an FAQ.

I believe I have purchased HippoEdit once or twice, in the past, through Bitsdujour.

Questions:
1. it is cheaper to upgrade an older version of hippoedit from several years ago? 2. Or to buy a new copy of today's current version, during today's BDJ sale?

Thanks in advance.

Charles Beauchamp How well does HippoEdit handle as a unit very large web sites - say 10 GB or so?

How well does it, for example, search through a 10 GB website to find the file of interest in this multifile / multi hierarchically organized folder system ?

Alexander Gapon @disenchnated: If you bought the license for the older version of HippoEDIT, it shall still work for current version - so you do not need to buy a new license, it was unofficial "practice" for versions till 2.0. From 2.0 I will decrease the regular price, but now one would need to pay for the upgrade. Or buy the lifetime license. But do not worry, the version you already have and all versions sold before the release of 2.0 will be converted to lifetime licenses automatically.

Alexander Gapon @Charles Beauchamp: there is no difference for HippoEDIT if your web-site is 10GB or 100MB. The size of a single file is important. Loading/editing file of 10GB as one chunk may be problematic - the editor will load the whole file into memory and so you need enough of it...
But the search will be in any case very fast - HippoEDIT searches in parallel through several files (or in parallel chunks in a single large file), doing so many jobs as you have logical CPUs. Reading of the files is also optimized. The speed is mostly limited by your hard drive. SSD would be much faster here. Also important which options are used for search: regular expressions or limit of search to do not search in comments will decrease the speed also.

Vivaldi I just purchased HippoEDIT (forgot to log into BDJ first, so I don't know what info you've got) and tried to download it directly from the HippoEDIT website.

Norton 360 won't allow the download. It flags all 3 versions of the file as Heur.ADvML.B, a heuristic virus with a high risk rating.

Normally, I'd assume it's a false positive when it's software from an established company. But since I recently had a hard drive crash and die, I'm still in the process of restoring and reinstalling software. I don't want to have to start all over again, so I'm being cautious.

I'm respectfully asking, what part of the HippoEDIT installer files is Norton 360 seeing as a threat? I'd really like to resolve this and keep the software, rather than have to ask for a refund. Thanks.

Alexander Gapon Hi Vivaldi,

don't be afraid - it is real false positive. Here you can find more details:
http://wiki.hippoedit.com...e-positive

Heur.ADvML.B is a heuristic analysis check https://www.symantec.com/...11-2400-99
which by some "machine learning" algorithms detects possible viruses. But in fact, it will recognize as a virus any, even empty software. One of the factors, to be indicated by Symantec as a virus would be an age of the file. If you just release new build it mostly always will be flagged. Another possible reason can be the NSIS installer itself - maybe NA just sees that it is a file containing other files...

To be sure, check the installer with Virus Total: https://www.virustotal.com/ it can run the security check with 67 different antivirus programs, and if most of them do not report a virus - it is a false positive.

In addition - check here old comments - the people using HippoEDIT for years, downloading it from the HippoEDIT website, and do not complain about viruses ;)

BR, Alex.

Vivaldi Alexander,

That's exactly what I suspected when I read Symantec's description (I forgot to mention that in my original comment). Normally I'd have run it through Malwarebytes, but I don't have it reinstalled yet.

I'm going to download the files now, and just tell Norton 360 to stop scanning them, otherwise they'll be sent to quarantine every time they're scanned. This overactive protection is one of the few things I don't like about Norton 360.

As I said, I know you're an established company, so I really did think the problem was with Symantec.

Thank you for the reply and the links.

the license for 1.60 is valid for 2.0 (like it unofficially was for all previous versions). Actually, all licenses given before release of 2.0 will be automatically converted to lifetime licenses. You can try it with 2.0 Alpha from the forum.
