What’s New in BBEdit

Version 12.1.6:Notes: Full change log available here

Now requires OS X 10.12.6 or later



  • There is a new command on the “Go” menu: “Commands…”. This brings up a modal panel which lists everything that you can do from a menu in BBEdit: menu commands, clippings, scripts, stationery, text filters, as well as open text documents and recent files
  • You can now generate lipsum, using the “Lorem Ipsum” command on the Insert submenu of the Edit menu
  • Lipsum generation is available in clippings
  • Lipsum generation is available as an HTML document placeholder, using the same #lipsum…# syntax as for clippings
  • There’s now a “Word” command on the Select submenu of the Edit menu. Choose it to select the word(s) containing the insertion point or selection range. There is no default keyboard equivalent for this; you can assign one using the “Menus & Shortcuts” preferences


  • Reorganized the “Appearance” preferences pane, moving the “Match appearance” check box to the top and making room for an annotation below it. The “Show icons” setting for sidebars has been squeezed out and moved to the Expert Preferences help (the setting is still honored)
  • Changed the order of menu items in the file filter UI: legacy HFS properties are now at the end of the menu (and some day may go away entirely, so be prepared). In addition, since folders may be used for either files or folders, the word “File” has been removed from the nomenclature except where a term applies specifically to files only (such as “File contents”)
  • The “Open” button for results windows (Multi-File Search, SCM operations, and others) has been deemed surplus to requirements and we have removed it from these windows. (You can still open items from a results window many different ways: return or Enter while the list has focus; or double-click on an item.)
  • The Text Options popover (under the gear in the navigation bar) will show an indication when settings in the document you’re editing are affected by a .editorconfig file, because changes to affected settings are lost when closing the document


  • Made changes to improve compatibility with iCloud Drive when application support and setup data is stored there
  • Overhauled and modernized the code that locates the BBEdit application support and Setup folders and their contents
  • “Compare Against Previous Version” and “Compare Against Disk File” are now available for files being displayed in results windows (when keyboard focus is in the editing view)
  • Extensively modernized file system operations in document open/save and other areas
  • Fixed a memory leak in the Text Options sheet
  • Fixed a memory leak in the file filtering subsystem
  • Fixed a bug in which more work than necessary was being done while building the item tree for folders in projects (insta- or otherwise)

Requirements for BBEdit

  • Intel, 64-bit processor
  • OS X 10.12.6 or later
