Been a BBEdit user for more than 10 years, but hate most of what they introduced with version 10. Most of it does not make any sense and requires more clicks to do the same. The new split search is a step back, ftp has been bad since version 6 or 7 when they removed the bookmark menu that allowed to switch between sites using a simple selection element instead of clicking disconnect and then connect again. Common used attributes where saves before now I am forced to enter attributes every time i use them unless I use a clipping. The preferences are more animated but require you to scroll even if you have enough space on the screen, user-friendly I do not think so. Overall the developers introduced a lot of things there might think are cool, but they are not very useful in every day operation. The new window sidebar is worse as it leaves less space for open files and then list goes on and on, the css palette is no longer in the html tools, and bigger and has unnecessary icons. Went back to using BBedit 9 and now purchased Coda 2 which I am using more often now than BBedit. A shame that they ruined this app with version 10. Maybe version 11 will address these issues and make BBEdit useful again, for now I am very disappointed with this upgrade and suggest just to ignore it. If nobody buys it they might finally get the message and bring some of the functionality back.

Cae back to using BBEdit from Coda as too many things do not work correctly in Coda, like the balancing of tags. Solved most of my issues with version 10 by ignoring its inbuilt functionality and use clippings for everything now. As Clippings are still better in BBEdit than in Coda.

Been a BBEdit user for more than 10 years and only recently discovered Coda 2 since I got an email being a transmit user.
As I am extremely unhappy with BBEdit 10, loved 9 but missed features from version 5 and never understood why they made the app worse and worse instead of better.
The same seems to happen with Coda as I looked at version one and agree like most people here that the new css editor just plainly sucks. Who ever had the idea to use a slider to set padding settings must have never used or coded a line in their live. This feature might be cool, but who has the time for it to load and it makes it difficult to just type the value in, same with other css attributes and you have to exactly know what you want to type, a big step back.
Have to revert to BBEdit from time to time, but hope to eventually be able to switch, maybe when version 2.5 comes out with a better css editor.

Just got Stylizer which is just awesome when it comes to style editing, maybe coda will have something like it in the future but for now it is well work the extra 80 bucks, as I will recuperate this in a day or two with the time I save. SO n o longer missing the css editor from version 1 ;-)

Downloaded the latest demo which is 15.0.1 which plug ins for InDesign and Illustrator CS6 but was not able to get it running on my Mac Book Pro Retina. Tech support was not able to find out why as the computer comes with a custom built of OSX 10.7.4 Anybody else has these problems?

Eventually worked out that the problem was caused by using setup assistant and having the same home directory name on both machines which also confused other network activity

Updates now only directly from Adobe and they offer subscriptions at the same price for users since CS3, make me disappointed to upgrade regularly. Price is again almost twice what it is in the US for Australia yet no difference in Language.
Besides the general problems, the 64 bit versions feel quicker, a lot of effort has gone yet again to make the apps look differently, changing the interphase, WHY??? Yet other little things that would make our everyday live easier have not made it into this version, even after suggesting and asking for them repeatedly. Wonder if they read the feedback emails and which lists? All I wanted is a modifier key to automatically switch between align to election and align to canvas. Like pressing command and clicking on the centre button aligns object to the canvas, while clicking without holding down a key or maybe hold down option or shift and align to selection. Apparently this is very difficult to do. This would speed my work flow up much more than content aware patches or other fancy things.

Just what i was looking for and needed, saves me the time to download and install YUI Compressor and fiddle with a non UI interface. Well worth the $20

Been using BBEdit 10 for some days now. It crashed a couple of times which did not happen with v9.

The new preference dialogue might be pretty with its icons and cool with the expanding and shrinking window size. But it is because of this less usable, as you have to scroll between preferences when you could have them all in sight if the window would stay in its biggest size which still fits even on a laptop screen. Not very user friendly. But worse is that with the split between preferences and setup some preferences have been removed. You can no longer customise the HTML tool palette, which with the inclusion of icons is now bigger then before. I do not need some of these buttons and find it especially annoying that I no longer have the CSS palette within the main HTML palette, which means having another palette open that takes even more screen space.

The new entry dialogue seems to have been built to be cool, but requires another click. The guys at BBEDit seem to make things more an more cumbersome instead of easier, this also happened with the new FTP browser introduced in version 8, that removed the Bookmarks menu when connected to a site. Before you could just select another bookmark and disconnect and connect to a different server, since version 8 this requires to click disconnect, then bookmark and then connect, more clicks and selections.

The old preference dialogue is no longer available, not even with an terminal entry. Which means we are now forced to work with the new one. Gone is the search from top button, so more scrolling or command up arrow clicking to search, also the search dialogue stays on screen and has to be closed manually another click and annoyance as it is in the way to see search results.

I have been a BBEdit user and supporter for many years and have upgraded to version 10 to support their efforts and in case there are bug fixes and lion compatibility. But really annoyed by all the unnecessary changes that make working with the application less productive and I spend many hours with it every day. Hopefully they will address some of these issues soon.

Just upgraded, relieved to see that my php. mysql installation has not been affected like in previous updates. Still this upgrade is supposed to be about improved usability, yet the people at Apple seem to be color blind. No custom icons in the side bar? Makes it harder to find things, the window close buttons also have no color when I was very used to get the feed back of red, green and yellow, no I have to watch closely which is not very handicap friendly. Guess and hope that these come back as options soon. Also no more spaces just four linear ones. Switching between them is less smooth. iPad like scroll bars, ugly. Lauchpad is nice but had that already with Folder grids.
Will see how it goes over the next couple of days.

Downloaded 5.0, as I previously was using 3.1 why the jump in the version number? Did not see that much new functionality, but might be to bring it in line with versions on other platforms.

But after only two days I have gone back to version 3.1.11Composed emails with inserted images into the text went out without the images, even when i saved them first and one of my accounts stopped to work all together complaining about the mail server proxy not responding and asking mw for my password.
All working with 3.1.1

I have seen some of the comments on this site that the new safari is not that new, that might be from an external and visual point of view be true, but underneath so much has changed. I have developed a content management system that heavily relies on the content editable capabilities of Safari and Internet Explorer and in that point the new safari has a lot of improvement to over, now supporting drag and drop of images, mor e formatting and cleaner html code generation, guess you should not judge a book by it's cover only ;-) for me certainly this is a very exiting new release and it does and allow things other browser can only dream off.
