Date Updated:
Adds options for using the selected text to create hyperlinks, generate tables, encode as numeric entities, insert file names and apply several different styles of comments.


  • Comment and uncomment the selected text using common styles used by HTML and languages similar to C/C++/Java/C#, CSS, INI, Perl/PHP/Ruby, SQL and VB.
  • Automatically selects the appropriate comment style based on the file extension. Supported file types include "html;htm" for "<!-- -->" comments, "css;c;cpp;h;hpp;hks;js;java;pas;php;php3;php4;mel" for "//" comments, "asp;qb;vbs" for "'" comments, "bas" for "REM" comments and "sql" for "--" comments [new in v1.31].
  • Convert the selected text to hyperlinks in the forms: <a href="text.html">text</a> , <a href="#text">text</a> and <a name="text">text</a>.
  • Convert text delimited with tabs or "!" characters to tables. New lines can be used to create multiple rows.
  • Encode text using numeric entities.
  • Insert a list of files in a specific folder that match the given file mask.


  • The "|" (pipe) character is no longer used as a column delimiter when converting lines to a table [new in v1.50].


  • To comment or uncomment a block of text: open the drop-down menu under the comments button and select the style of the comment.
  • To create a commonly used hyperlink based on the selected text: select the tag style from the anchor menu.
  • To create a table from delimited text: use the "!" character (without quotes) to separate table cells. Use new lines to separate table rows. Select the text and click the table button. For example, "one!two!three" generates <table><tr><td>one</td><td>two</td><td>three</td></tr></table>.
  • To encode text using numeric entities: select the text and click the email button. For example, "text" will be converted to: &#116;&#101;&#115;&#116;.
  • To insert a list of files: type the full path and the file mask. Select the path + mask and click the folder button. For example, type "C:\YourFolder\*.html" (excluding quotes) and select it. Click the folder button of the plugin. A list of matching files will be inserted, assuming that there are *.html files in a folder named C:\YourFolder\ on the computer.
