BBEdit 9.5.1

Bare Bones Software has released a minor update to its powerful text editor BBEdit. The update doesn’t pack in any new features, but it does offer a host of fixes covering a wide range of issues. For those irked by BBEdit 9.5’s changed approach with Capitalize Sentences and Capitalize Lines, one of the two dozen fixes reinstates the behavior from pre-9.5 versions of BBEdit, so that the software now once again lowercases your text before applying the selected capitalization. Beyond that fix, the release corrects an issue with updating HTML markup preferences, addresses a bug with prefixed Emacs commands, and attempts to better preserve file permissions when saving documents. Several other fixes to script attachability enable scripts that run when documents are closed to work properly. ($125 new, free update, 16.4 MB)
