ConstEdit v1.11.0100 is here.

ConstEdit is upgraded to version 1.11.0100. This version aims mainly at fixing the issues when working with Internet Explorer 11. Please download it from the Download Page. Here is the change log :

  • This version of ConstEdit supports only Internet Explorer 11 or above. Internet Explorer 10 is no longer supported.
  • Minor changes to some tooltip wordings.
  • The latest version of ILProtector is used, which is version 2.0.11.
  • These issues of the previous version of ConstEdit, when working with Internet Explorer 11 (please refer to the previous post of 19Oct2013 for more details), have been fixed :
    • Mouse right-click didn't work to open the contextmenu for html documents.
    • When the PageUp/PageDown key is pressed, ConstEdit scrolled all the way to the top/bottom of the opened html document instead of performing scroll up/down by one page.
    • Input Method IME didn't work properly.
    • When pasting images from the clipboard, the pasted image may lose the link to the source file.
  • These issues of the previous version of ConstEdit have been fixed :
    • File types .htm/.html/.txt cannot be associated to ConstEdit successfully by the user in Windows 8 or above.
    • The case of ConstEdit already running in another user session simultaneously on the same machine is now handled.
    • When editing an html document, if the caret is inside a table and the Undo item from the Spellcheck Context Menu is invoked, ConstEdit may hang.
  • The supported formats for Video are now mp4 and mov. Webm is no longer supported.
  • The supported formats for Audio are now mp3, lossy m4a and mp4. Aac is no longer supported.
  • The ConstEdit Overview document is updated according to the changes.

ConstEdit Issues With Internet Explorer 11

Now that Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer 11 has become available officially, some glitches are found in the current release of ConstEdit in working with IE11. We are working on a new version of ConstEdit to cope with these issues. These are the issues that have been identified so far :

- Input Methods IME does not work properly for html documents. The main impact is mostly on Asian language characters input. Plain text txt documents editing is not affected. If you do not use any IME or do not know what IME is, then this issue doesn't apply to you.
- Mouse right-click is not working for html documents to bring out the context menu. Again plain text txt documents editing is not affected. The right-click key on the keyboard can be used to get around this issue for the time being. The right-click key is the key at the left of the right-hand-side Ctrl key. Pressing this key brings out the context menu at the current typing position, as if the mouse is right-clicked.
- When editing an html document, pressing PageUp/PageDown keys doesn't perform scroll up/down as expected, but jumps to the top of the first/last page of the document. As a work-around, you may use the mouse wheel or the scroll bar to do scrolling.
- When pasting images from the clipboard, the pasted image may lose the link to the source file. The displayed image is exactly the same as the original image though. The document still works as normal, but the doc size can be much larger than expected. To workaround this issue, after pasting the image, change the Source of the image back to the correct file.

All the above issues are for html documents only. Plain text txt documents are not affected. Please bear with us till the new version becomes available.

ConstEdit v1.10.0100 is here.

ConstEdit is upgraded to version 1.10.0100. A standard Windows installer is now used for a complete hassle-free installation. Please download for a free trial.

You may need to manually remove the older version of ConstEdit which doesn't use an installer.

- a Windows installer is provided
- ConstEdit is no longer portable; each user now has his/her own set of application settings (e.g. recent files list) that are not shared with other users
- the latest version of VgrSoft ILProtector v2.0.5 is used
- "Add Shortcut to Desktop" item in Settings Menu is removed because a Desktop shortcut is already automatically added by the installer
- ConstEdit can now be started from a non-local disk
- some very minor change of wordings in the EULA
