BBEdit 11.6.5 Release Notes
BBEdit 11.6.5 contains fixes for reported issues, as well as refinements to new features that were added in BBEdit 11.6.
For details on all the new features and enhancements available in BBEdit 11, please see its release notes.
For detailed information on using any of BBEdit's features, please refer to the user manual (choose "User Manual" from BBEdit's Help menu).
BBEdit 11.6.5 requires Mac OS X 10.9.5 or later, and is compatible with macOS 10.12 "Sierra".
The "Menus & Shortcuts" preferences pane has two new buttons. "Simple Menus" will simplify the menu structure by hiding the "advanced" menu commands (the ones that go along with a full BBEdit license and which are also available during the evaluation period). The result is a menu structure that is very similar to TextWrangler's.
The "Full Menus" button undoes the work of Simple Menus, by making all menus and commands visible (even ones that might have previously been manually hidden).
Both operations leave your keyboard equivalents intact.
The "Restore Defaults" button, as before, will reset all keyboard equivalents to factory defaults, and will make all menus and items visible.
Fixed a bug in which BBEdit-specific menu commands were not properly converted when upgrading from a TextWrangler setup.
Added an entry for the "Collapse Folds Below Level" submenu head, so that it may be hidden using the Menus & Shortcuts preferences, if desired.

Fixed a small memory leak.
Fixed the suspected cause of a crash that would occur when closing a document while a "Live Search" operation was in progress.
The value type for
input elements in HTML5 is actually
CDATA, so the syntax checker will no longer report errors for
input name values which are otherwise properly formed.
Fixed a crash which would occur when a multi-file search file filter needed to load a file's text for a "file contents" filter term, but loading the text failed for any reason.
Fixed a problem in which BBEdit couldn't install its privileged helper tool (used for supporting authenticated saves and command-line tool installation) on some systems.
Fixed selection flashing which would occur when doing a multi-file Replace All or text factory operation that affected open documents.
Fixed a bug in which the C/etc function scanner was confused by
the presence of
__attribute__ directives appearing before the
Fixed a bug in which text in rectangular selections was not passed correctly to Services.
Fixed a bug in which Grep case transformations during
