The latest version (v5.2.1) produces an exeption and refuses to start on my machine (Win 8.1 x64 without .NET & VC++ runtimes). Perhaps the system requirements changed? Nothing mentioned in the changelog.

It doesn't have functionality far in advance of other editors, but the interface is great. There are big, clear icons, themes, easy tabbed interface, and a really smooth options menu. If you think text editors are supposed to be functional rather than friendly, this might not be your cup of tea. Otherwise...

Nice. The best text compare Ive ever seen. And mainly because of the trim-left/right.

@hamasaki
Opening the download page of EmEditor automatically starts downloading the installers (x32 or x64 depending on user's system). I added direct download links to portable versions.

webfork on 2018-05-04 12:59

@smaragdus: my fault, thanks for fixing that

The software Author has stated that the original SavageEd will not be developed, but that SavageEd2 will.

Link is to Google. Google indicates it can not locate the SavageEd2.
