- Search|Replace All: A search-and-replace that makes a large number of replacements throughout the entire file (such as making a change on every line in the file) is now faster and uses less memory.
- Editor: Deleting a rectangular selection left an empty rectangular selection that disabled certain commands like Extra|Trim Whitespace that have special behavior on rectangular selections until the selection was reset by clicking somewhere in the file or making a new selection.
- Editor: Deleting a rectangular selection with the cursor on the bottom line and then using a command like Edit|Cut that operates on the active line when there is no selection operated on the deleted selection's bottom line instead of the top line where the cursor is at after deleting the selection.
- Maintain History List: Open, Remove, Up, and Down buttons were not disabled when the dialog was initially shown (with nothing selected) if the dialog had previously been used with something selected.
- Search: Attempting to use a regex with a syntax error caused other commands to either not show a progress meter or to permanently show a stuck progress meter.
- Text Layout: Deleting a text layout and then switching to a tab that was using the bottommost text layout caused an index out of bounds error.
