I cannot but agree with your praise of BBEdit. It is so long ago that I bought my first copy of the program, I can't even remember. In my opinion it is the number one program-text editor.

MPG: yep!

Bare Bones Software Releases BBEdit 15.0

New ChatGPT Worksheet, Minimap, Text Merge, Expandable Cheat Sheets, Among the Many New Features

NORTH CHELMSFORD, Mass. – January 9, 2024 - Bare Bones Software today announced the release and immediate availability of BBEdit(r) 15.0, a major new version of its professional strength text and code editor.

BBEdit 15 introduces ChatGPT worksheets, a Minimap palette, Text Merge, expandable Cheat Sheets, and enhancements to the Projects and Text Factories features, as part of a vast array of improvements intended to make working with projects and text documents more efficient and more productive.

"In addition to exciting new features, BBEdit 15 contains a wealth of improvements to its unique features and core capabilities," said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. "We've made all of these changes in order to enhance the quality of life for everyone who uses BBEdit to work with text, and we're looking forward to seeing them put to work."

BBEdit 15 brings its unique "worksheet" interface to the world of generative AI: the new ChatGPT Worksheet feature facilitates interacting with ChatGPT from within BBEdit itself for those with a ChatGPT account and API key (available from OpenAI).

A new Minimap palette shows a high-level overview of the active text document. This facilitates visualization of the document's overall structure, as well as navigation within larger documents.

New commands from the Git menu to push and pull the current branch to/from its remote, and Discard Changes from the contextual menu, improves the ease of workflows. Interface improvements to BBEdit's unique Text Factory feature make it even simpler to set up multi-step text transformation processes.

A more approachable, significantly redesigned interface for BBEdit's Project... feature makes it easier than ever to group and edit related files, no matter their location on disk. Also, the new top-level project item for workspace settings, web site settings and project settings help project functions work better, such as making completions more accurate.

BBEdit 15 also introduces expandable “Cheat Sheets,” customizable reference documents for pieces of text and their descriptions, with built-in examples for Markdown and Clippings placeholders. A new Text Merge feature provides a powerful transformation capability, conceptually similar to the idea of mail merge.

BBEdit offers a generous evaluation model in which its full feature set is available for the first 30 days of use. At the end of the 30-day evaluation period, BBEdit will continue to run with a permanent feature set which includes its powerful editing capabilities, but not its web authoring tools or other exclusive features. BBEdit's exclusive features may be re-enabled at any time with a purchased license. BBEdit 15 offers a fresh 30-day evaluation to everyone.

BBEdit 15.0 requires macOS Big Sur (11.0) or later, and runs on macOS Sonoma (14.0). In total, BBEdit 15 includes more than 180 additions and refinements to this award-winning, professional strength text and code editor.
