Test run: everything nominal. 😎

Incidentally, stacked licenses in "About..." dialog are truly an elegant solution I'm seeing for the first time...

My personal appraisal: although I'm fully aware Textilosaurus isn't a Notepad replacement, two of the three basic features I consider when evaluating a text editor are missing. Although a complete case changing function is present (see "Edit | Text case conversion"), automagic activation of URLs and .LOG function are not (most Scintilla based editors can't do the 2nd).
Hello midas.

I added full support for automagic URL highlighting which does not require mouse hover and works efficiently also for big files (as it operates only on currently visible text).

Hi there. Nice going. A much appreciated feature that I am sure will propel Textilosaurus popularity. 8)

Can we keep our cool here and show some appreciation instead? skunkos is providing his work for free, so he's entitled to call it whatever he wants...

I downloaded and tested the latest release, looking good. 8)

Here's a minor niggle with URL recognition -- Textosaurus correctly activates something like 'mailto:someone@the.net' but not 'someone@the.net' alone; other editors can do it (and manifestly phpBB does it, too) so why not yours?

BTW, great job... I do like the URL highlighting.

Is there any chance you could add spell checking capabilities to the product? Along with the usual coding tasks, I would also use it for simple text file editing.

Thanks, Nick

Because I simply forgot about plain e-mail strings. There is a single regex which handles all substrings which should be highlighted as "URL".

Thank you. Well, currently the base feature set is there. I certainly can think about opt-in spell-checking feature. I must find suitable and minimalistic C++ library which can do that. Can you file a feature request for this? Please, be very verbose about what behavior/features spell-checking should have so that I can properly implement it. THANK YOU for your support.

and why the fuck you did it?
actually don't care, downvoted
Well, what to say. Many people wrote me that word Textilosaurus associates with "textile" rather than with "text", which is propably true. Hence I decided to rename project rather earlier and make the name clearer.

Quick tip: anyone using Textosaurus portably and not wanting to go through installing 'vc_redist.x64.exe' (VC 2015 runtimes) on target systems might as well just copy 'msvcp140.dll' and 'vcruntime140.dll' to 'textosaurus.exe' folder -- you can get those files by searching any system with the runtimes installed or from any recent Firefox folder.

As an additional bonus, one can shave almost 15MB from disk cost by then deleting 'vc_redist.x64.exe'.

Or extracting them from 'vc_redist.x64.exe
