BBEdit has built-in support for macOS Dark Mode and automatic appearance switching, as well as an assortment of built-in text color schemes.
It’s easy to add your own custom color schemes, or customize a built-in one.
“Set Menu Keys” in the Preferences window is where the action is.
Text completion is an integral part of BBEdit’s editing workflow. You can customize results using both clippings and
ctags data, and use its built-in Language Server Protocol support to enable advanced language-sensitive completion. (Results vary by language and server.)
Invoke BBEdit from the command line and pass the results to a document. For example, the
ps (process status) command can generate some extremely long lines. Here, we are telling
ps to give complete details and to put the result into a new document and to scroll the window to the top of the document. (The document behind the Terminal window is a BBEdit document.)
The “Commands” command on the Go menu provides quick access to any of BBEdit’s menu commands with just a few keystrokes. This includes open documents, recently opened files, scripts, clippings, and more.
A “repeat last command” function on the Edit menu provides an express way to repeat any applicable menu command (particularly handy for repeating text transformations).
