Bold text The Status Bar is the small row with tips and information displayed at the bottom of the UltraEdit / UEStudio window. The status bar can be toggled in the Layout tab. The status bar includes the following sections, from left to right.
The left area of the status bar displays descriptions of menu items as you use the arrow keys to navigate through menu items or hover the mouse pointer over menu items. This area additionally shows messages that describe the actions of toolbar buttons as you hover the mouse pointer over them or depress them before releasing them. (These help prompts aren't shown for ribbon mode, and a tool tip is displayed instead.)
If macro recording is in progress, a red dot and the word "Macro" will be displayed in the right-most area of this field as well.
The line number (if enabled) of the cursor in the file, and the column number are displayed together in a single panel.
In hex edit mode this displays the cursor position in hex and decimal values.
The active clipboard is shown as "C#" in the status bar following the line and column indicator separated with a comma. "C0" represents the Windows / system clipboard, while "C1" - "C9" represents user clipboards 1 - 9.
This portion of the status bar indicates whether the active file contains DOS, Unix/Mac, or Mac legacy line terminators.
This interactive section of the status bar shows the encoding of the active file. Click the button immediately to the right to open a menu and select a different encoding type for the active file. This does not actually affect the underlying content of the file, and no conversion to the file on disk is done (except in the case of new, unsaved files). This merely changes the encoding used to display the file in the editor.
This interactive section of the status bar shows the syntax highlighting applied to the active file. Click the button immediately to the right to open a menu and select a different highlighting type for the active file (this is not remembered between editing sessions).
This portion of the status bar shows the date and time the active file was last modified (prior to this session). For new files, the date and time shown is the creation date and time. The date format is read from the system "short date" setting. You can configure this in your operating system's regional settings.
This portion of the status bar shows the file size in bytes as well as the total number of lines in the active file. The file size is updated when UltraEdit / UEStudio writes any changes to the disk on save. When a selection is active in the file, this field reflects the number of characters / lines selected. For performance reasons, the number of lines selected is not displayed if the total file size exceeds 10MB.
In column mode with a selection active in the file, this field shows the number of selected columns if at least 1 column is selected.
In hex edit mode with a selection active, this field shows the number of selected bytes only.
If the active file is set to read-only, R/O is shown in this control to indicate this state. If the active file is writable, R/W (readable/writable) will be displayed here. You can click this item to toggle the active file's read-only status. Doing so does not affect the underlying file attribute unless the option "Change file attribute when toggling read-only for active file" is selected under Settings » File Handling » Miscellaneous.
This portion of the status bar indicates whether in insert or overstrike mode. You can click this item to toggle between modes. This affects all open files and not just the active file.
This portion of the status bar indicates whether in column mode. You can click this item to toggle column mode. This affects all open files and not just the active file.
The rightmost area of the status bar shows "CAP" if caps lock is enabled. This is subdued if caps lock is not enabled.
