Additions & Changes

This update contains only fixes for reported issues.


  • Fixed crash which would occur when processing plain-text LSP completion documentation when running on macOS 11 or earlier.

  • Corrected appearance of text in the license panel when Dark Mode is in effect.

  • Made a change so that the Git branch status navigation bar item doesn't spend any time updating itself at application activation if it's not visible (as is the case for any document not in a Git repository).

  • Fixed bug in which "Remove Comments" would delete the last character of the document when performed with no selection range; this created a problem if the document ended with a closing </html> element not followed by whitespace or a line break.

  • Improve legibility of provisional inline input (such as combining accents) when in dark mode.

  • Fixed bug in which the live match count in the Find window did not correctly update after a "Replace" operation (including "Replace All" and "Replace & Find").

  • Fixed bug in which clicking on a line in the results list after "Find All" would beep, in cases where the search text specified a color.

  • Quieted errors reported from use of the allow attribute in HTML5 iframe elements.

  • Fixed bug in which Zip archives written out of order (with files appearing in the archive before their parent directory) were not read correctly.

  • Fixed stall which would occur when running certain script processes from the "Commands" panel (but worked OK when run directly from the Scripts menu; go figure).

  • Made a change to invalidate the Open File by Name directory cache more aggressively in some situations (such as when switching a Git branch), which will improve the accuracy of searching in the wake of such events.

  • Fixed crash which would occur when opening a document from a Zip archive while running on certain versions of macOS.

  • If for some reason you want non-ASCII Unicode spaces to be visible all the time when "Show Invisibles" is turned on, and not only when "Show Spaces" is also turned on, you can use the following expert preference to accomplish this:

    defaults write com.barebones.bbedit OnlyShowInvisibleUnicodeSpacesWhenShowSpacesIsTurnedOn -bool NO

  • Fixed bug in Unix Shell Script syntax coloring in which a # inside of a bracket pair inside of a parenthesis within a string would cause confusion.

  • Fixed bug in which case-sensitive link checking did not report case mismatches. (This is enabled by turning on the HTMLLinkChecker_WarnIncorrectPathnameCase expert preference.)
