TextWrangler 5.5.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Bare Bones Software has released TextWrangler 5.5.2 [1] to provide compatibility with macOS 10.12 Sierra. The free text editor also receives many of the fixes and improvements that Bare Bones added to BBEdit (TextWrangler’s elder sibling; see “BBEdit 11.6.1 [2],” 24 August 2016). Notably, the View > Text Display menu gains three new commands (Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Actual Size) and the List Display Font setting in the Appearances preferences now has a slider to adjust the font size. TextWrangler also now features keyboard commands for Check Syntax (Command-K) and Run (Command-R), and fixes bugs that prevented scratchpad documents from remembering and restoring their state across open/close cycles. (Free, 9.7 MB, release notes [3], 10.9.5+)
