Bare Bones Software has also released TextWrangler 4.5.1, mirroring the bulk of the fixes found in the simultaneously released BBEdit 10.5.3 — TextWrangler’s more powerful (and non-free) sibling. Among the highlights, the general-purpose text editor fixes an issue where the Text Encoding pop-up menu in the Save dialog didn’t reflect the current encoding setting; squashes a bug that used excessive memory and would crash the app when opening large, complicated files; reduces the amount of time displaying startup progress; fixes a bug that caused Show Hidden Items in the Open dialog to be ignored; and corrects some artwork for enhanced viewing on Retina displays. (Free from Bare Bones Software and the Mac App Store, 9.6 MB, release notes)
Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets
You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:
- Create a new snippet.
- From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
- Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
- Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.
After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.
