BBEdit Anchor tag Changes

A look at how BBEdit Anchor Tag has changed

I have been using BBEdit for many years. The earliest copy that I could find was BBEdit 4.3. Recently, I was looking through my applications on my Macintosh Powerbook G3 and found an old copy of BBEdit 6.0. I thought it would be interesting to see how the Anchor tag has changed over the years.

Things to Note

  • The dialog box is much cleaner in BBEdit 12.1.5
  • In BBEdit 6.01 the scheme include http,https,ftp,mailto,news,telnet,finger,gopher,wais and whois
  • in BBEdit 10+, doesn't save recent URLs
  • In BBEdit 6.01, The strange symbol next to href field is to enter the document selection in the text field
  • in BBEdit 10+, you can change the anchor items to whatever you want.
