Despite efforts to keep it small, the download size for STE is now 42 kB, which is 40% larger than version 1.11 (29.93 kB). This is mainly due to a new, better quality logo. It's also partly due to the new features! ;-) Some highlights in this version include:

  • Printing support!
  • 6 new toolbar buttons (printing + headings)
  • "Continue without saving?" prompt when you attempt to exit without saving
  • New, improved logo! Visible from the "About STE" dialog box

Version 1.12 (03 June 2010)

  • Added: Basic printing support (File menu & toolbar button)
  • Added: New Undo/Redo feature in the Edit menu
  • Added: "Continue without saving?" prompt when you exit without saving
  • Added: Statistics now counts number of characters as well
  • Added: 5 new formatting buttons - heading levels 1-5
  • Changed: New logo in the "About STE" dialog box

Known bugs:

  • Sometimes when exiting it will think you haven't saved the document, even if you have.
The "Continue without saving?" dialog box:
STE-1-12-continue-without-saving.jpgAnd as STE uses your operating system's standard "Look & Feel", the appearance changes depending on which OS you are using. In Ubuntu 10.04 the same dialog looks like this:

Um… "Click OK to continue without saving" means you'll exit without saving. Clicking cancel returns you to the editor so you can save the file.

That said, I agree this could be a bit more intuiituve. I think something like the prompts that Windows Notepad and other programs use would be more familiar to users.

@Ed: I want to add custom buttons just like that, but haven't had a chance to look into how it's done. It's on the todo list though ;-)

I understand. I've done enough programming in C, C++, VB, etc to know that the built-in functions for message box buttons can be limiting (yes, no, OK, cancel)

I know for a fact that I'm able to customise the buttons - just haven't looked into how yet :)
