highlighted results in Hebrew doesn't work

Post by LeoLUG » Thu Nov 26, 2020 12:22 am

Hi, thank you for this wonderful program, don't know how it's possible to manage without it!

I realized now that the program doesn't highlight Hebrew letters from the result list.
In older version it was working (don't know exactly how old).

Thank you for your feedback and bug report.

It's currently a limitation with Everything 1.4.

Everything 1.4 does not highlight search terms when filenames contain RTL characters.

I hope to add support for highlighting RTL characters in filenames in a future release of Everything.

שלום LeoLUG,
How long are you using Everything? This change was made a very long time ago.

וברכה Stamimail
I'm using it for years, and for a long time I'm up to date, I never realized the bug.
This week, my friend asked me to help him with a few problems he had with Everything, he was using a very old version, so I installed him the new one, and he realized it.

rtl highlighting
There was a similar issue in many Notepad applications.
(I do not know if this is exactly the same issue or another issue.)
I've been told that in order to fix that problem it would require modification of the Scintilla editing component.
and indeed it comes one day:
https://sourceforge.net/p/scintilla/fea ... 1188/#ccc8

I did not follow it, but it may be that the person there (Neil Hodgson) can give a developer useful information.
