top style 4.0.0.92 freezes at random

Post by rogerk »

I am having this constant problem with this version of TS running on Win7 Pro. I can't pin point any specific sequence of events that cause it.
When it freezes I have to close the program and start over. I hope that someone can help with this. I have been trying various editors and like this one the best. I hesitate to use it for a while when this keeps happening, so switch back and forth between Ultra Edit, notepad++ and Top Style. I wonder if others have this problem too? This is such an annoyance that I am not sure that I can continue to use this program. There has to be a fix, I hope!

IE9 (running inside the preview pane) is causing this. My advice is to switch to some other rendering engine (Mozilla Gecko, for example) -- or to switch off the Output panel altogether (Ctrl+D)

For TopStyle 5, I'm seriously considering switching to Google Chrome as the default rendering engine for the preview pane. These freezes are driving me nuts.

Thanks, Stefan.

Thanks for the reply.
I don't use preview anyway, Is there a way to disable the preview in registry, or elsewhere?
Is there any release date for a new version yet? Can't wait, I love the editor except for that bug!!

When you close the Output panel (Ctrl+D) then the preview disappears and should not come back the next time you launch TopStyle.

You can download TopStyle 5 Beta 1 here:

There is no official release date, but I *must* release TopStyle 5 in 2012.

I just downloaded the beta of the next release.
Can't wait to have a test drive of it!
I am hoping/wondering if there might be a feature that I love in Notepad++, that is the automatic highlighting of the matching opening/closing tags?
I know the current version has the icon that you can click on to go to it, but that is a little cumbersome to me.
Just my two cents worth...

Please keep up the good work!
