Status Bar

Shows or hides the Status Bar, which resides at the bottom of the main window.

The Status Bar indicates:

  1. Current line number with the caret, and total lines count (see also Line Numbers);
  2. caret position on the current line, and the current line length (see also Line Lengths);
  3. and offset of the caret within the entire document, and total document length.
  4. Decimal and hexadecimal code of current character, i.e. the caracter directly after the caret.
    • Note: Depending on the version of TED Notepad, this code is either the ASCII code or the Unicode character code.
  5. Type of Encoding, which the document is to be saved in (e.g. ANSI, UTF-8, Unicode or Unicode, Big Endian);
  6. and whether BOM shall be used (only in encodings, which allow BOM, e.g. UTF-8 or Unicode).
  7. Type of Newlines to be used upon saving (i.e. Win, Unix, Mac or Mixed).
  8. Whether any unsaved modifications to the document have been made since the last Save operation.
  9. Current state of typing mode, i.e. Insert Mode or Overwrite Mode;
  10. and current state of the Word Wrap option.

The Status Bar responds to mouse clicks:

Note: The last Status Bar panel might contain active operation progress information and other such notifications from time to time.

Note: Displayed Line Numbers are irrespective of actual word wrapping, therefore, the same line number may span across more than one visual line, as long as such line is only temporarily wrapped by the Word Wrap option.

Overwrite Mode (Ins)

Toggles between Insert Mode and Overwrite Mode.

Note: If some text is selected upon typing, it is replaced by the character typed, regardless of whether Insert Mode or Overwrite Mode is on.

Line Numbers

If checked, gutter with line numbers is displayed next to the lines.

Note: Each line is numbered regardless of current word wrapping. If a line is wrapped, it keeps the original line number nonetheless. Therefore some visual lines may lack numbers in the gutter, which is an indicator of that line being a continuation of the previous visual line.

Note: The same line numbers are displayed in the Status Bar.

Note: Color of the gutter and numbers can be customized in the Settings dialog. See chapter Appearance page of the Settings dialog.

Visible Newlines

If checked, each line in the document window, which is terminated by an actual newline, is visually capped with a special newline symbol.

Note: The text of the document is not modified by this feature in any way.

See also Line Lengths.

Line Lengths

If checked, each visible line in the document window, is capped with a length of that line. The lengths are represented in characters, and depend on current word wrapping. This is different from what Status Bar displays as line length, since Status Bar calculates line lengths regardless of current word wrapping. The foundation of Line Lengths is to provide an immediate visual clue of length for any given visual line as currently displayed, while Status Bar is to provide information about the document itself, ignoring any temporary wrapping.

Note: The text of the document is not modified by this feature in any way.

Zoom In (Ctrl+Num+)

Increases the size of font.

Zoom Reset (Ctrl+Num0)

Resets the size of font to size set in the Settings dialog. See chapter Appearance page of the Settings dialog.

Zoom Out (Ctrl+Num-)

Decreases the size of font.

Word Wrap (Ctrl+W)

If turned on, every line of the document is wrapped to fit either the visual width of the editor window, or the Wrap Margin, if Wrap Margin is enabled as well. Wrapping lines of text enables user to see all text on any line, but it does not affect the way such text appears when it is printed or saved to a file.

Note: If a single word is too long to fit within Wrap Margin, it is not broken just yet, but is allowed to continue even beyond the Wrap Margin. However, if the word is also too long to fit within the width of the editor window, then it is broken into several lines as necessary. In other words, Wrap Margin is a somewhat soft wrapping guide, whereas editor window width is a hard wrapping point.

Note: Numbers in the Line Numbers gutter and within the Status Bar are always irrespective of actual word wrapping.

Note: If window width or Wrap Margin changes, actual word wrapping adjusts itself automatically.

No ale to dnes asi uz nikoho neprekvapi, ze ano... :) Teraz ma napada, mozno by prekvapilo, keby to tak nefungovalo. Clovek by musel mackat nejaky cudlik, aby sa mu opravilo aktualne zalomenie.. :D

Wrap Margin

Shows or hides the Wrap Margin, which is a thin vertical line, indicating soft word wrapping width. If both Word Wrap and Wrap Margin are turned on, all lines in the document are wrapped to fit within this margin. If Wrap Margin is turned off while Word Wrap is turned on, lines in the document are wrapped to fit within window width.

Note: Wrap Margin can stay turned on even while Word Wrap is turned off. In such case, the Wrap Margin does not wrap lines on its own, but rather gives a visual guideline for line lengths and manual line wrapping.

Position of the Wrap Margin can be easily adjusted by clicking on the margin line and dragging it.

Note: The visual position of the Wrap Margin changes (along with text of the document) upon horizontal scrolling, therefore, it always denotes the same absolute horizontal position within the text.

Fullscreen (F11)

If checked, TED Notepad enters the Fullscreen mode. In this mode, the application window is expanded to entire user screen.

Note: This mode is somewhat stay-on-top as well, as long as the application window is active. This is a desired system default behaviour.

See also Stay on Top.

Stay on Top (Alt+O+T)

If checked, TED Notepad stays in front of other common applications even if not active.

Note: If more than one application is in a stay-on-top mode, their order on the screen depends on the System. There is no way to ensure, that any particular one will be the topmost one of them.

Note: The reason the hotkey is a combination of menu mnemonics, instead of using a more usual hotkey combination, is to avoid accidental unwanted activation of stay-on-top mode by new less experienced users.

Tip: In order to remember the Stay on Top option between sessions, turn on Window size setting in the Settings dialog. See chapter Settings page of the Settings dialog.

See also Fullscreen.

Second Font (F8)

If checked, Second Font is used to display edited text. Otherwise, Primary Font is used.

Both these fonts, including their color, can be changed in the Settings dialog. See chapter Appearance page of the Settings dialog.

Note: By default, Primary Font is preset to a fixed-width font, also caled monospace font, while Second Font is preset to a proportional font. This convention, however, is not exacted. The user is free to setup any pair of fonts.

Settings.. (Alt+Enter)

Shows the Settings dialog which is described in chapter Settings dialog.
