TextWrangler Support Home

Note: TextWrangler is now part of BBEdit. We have sunsetted TextWrangler, and we encourage anyone interested in TextWrangler to download and use BBEdit instead.

If you are an existing TextWrangler customer, it’s time to switch to BBEdit. We promise that you will feel right at home, because the two products are identical in every way that you’re used to. And you still don’t have to pay anything, unless you want to support us by buying a license.

Please see our Q&A on switching to BBEdit from TextWrangler.

TextWrangler is not compatible with macOS 10.13 (High Sierra).
