Thank you for correcting the EmEditor Professional description. However, I would like to ask you to re-exam the speed
, which you mentioned 1.5s/2.5s
. EmEditor is actually popular because of its lightweight design.
I have tried to optimize the startup time every time I release the upgrade, and the startup time should be less than 1 second
in most environments. In Version 6.00 or later, there is a new option called EmEditor Quick Start
, and you can find it from the Tools menu, Customize, and then Shortcut tab. By checking this option, the EmEditor window will start even faster, and it will launch usually in less than 0.5 seconds
. This is possible because a hidden EmEditor window will be launched as soon as the EmEditor tray icon is launched. When a user starts EmEditor, the hidden EmEditor window will be switched to the visible state, and it looks that EmEditor launches quickly. This option is not turned on by default, so a user should turn on this option if he or she cares the speed most. Even without this option, however, EmEditor does not use commercial libraries such as Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC), thus it is optimized very well especially for the startup time. You can find that the size of the core program "emeditor.exe
" is only 527KB
at this writing, which should explain how light-weighted it is.
I am also eager to see other features that EmEditor is good at, such as Unicode
. The Unicode support is a must for anyone who uses international languages. Most text editors claim they support Unicode (UTF-8 and UTF-16), but the reality is they only convert Unicode to the system encoding (or ANSI) internally when they open files, so they cannot actually edit characters that are not supported by the system encoding. For instance, most text editors cannot actually edit Shift-JIS (Japanese) encoding on English Windows. Most text editors cannot even open Unicode file names. I know because I tested them!
Maybe that is why EmEditor is a most popular text editor in international markets. It is widely used by Japanese government and European Union organizations, and many international companies.
