Automator actions are worth the price. They'll save you hours.
Downgraded from 10 back to 9.6.3
This version seems to think that Single File Search and Multi-File Search are two seperate things, and require their own windows. I know version 9 adopted this paradigm, but it also alowed you to keep using the unified Search window from BBEdit8, which was far more efficient. Version 10 eliminates the unified Search window entirely, and now I find myself consistently opening a Single File Search window and then realizing that I should have opened a Multi-File search window, or visa-versa. Each with their own window, this adds to screen clutter, and requires more clicks when you've inadvertently initiated the wrong type of search. Previous versions there was no, "wrong type of search" scenario. You just typed "Command-F" and adopted the previous search scope, and in cases where no docs were open assumed Multi-File Search.
Secondly, when performing a Single-File search, BBEdit now seems to think the best place to start the search is where your cursor is. Which more often than not, is a very bad place to start the search, because it will return no results, and leave you wondering why, if you are not conscious of where your cursor is, or unless you intentionaly move the cursor to the top of the document before each search. BBEdit 9 handled this with a "Start at Top" option. I can't actually imagine a scenario where you would want to search a document but NOT the lines of code above your cursor.
BBedit also seems to think it knows better by automatically placing any text in the clipboard in the search field. I know this can be helpful at times, but other times, you have actually coppied some text you want to paste into the "Replace" field, and your efforts are doubled. Increasing inefficicent, and obviously not tested by power users.
I've switched to BBEdit from TextMate, and I'm not looking back. Fullscreen mode and great project managment seal the deal.
