This is a hotfix release. It addresses a regression due to which, in some situations, Unix line breaks were converted to Windows line breaks upon saving files. It also includes optimizations that significantly reduce the memory footprint of PyScripter. It is available at Sourceforge.

The new version of PyScripter is DPI Aware. This means that by default on high DPI screens PyScripter will do its own scaling and will not rely on the scaling carried out by the operating system (Windows). Users with high DPI screens will see a considerable improvement in the way texts rendered and blurry text will no longer be an issue. Other users will monitors having the common 96 pixels per inch resolution, should not observe any noticeable difference.
If however you want to go back and rely on scaling carried out by Windows, you can do that if you are using Windows 10 and have the Creators Update installed. Find the executable file of PyScripter under Program Files, right click and select Properties. In the Compatibility tab check “Override high DPI scaling behaviour” and in the dropdown box select System (Enhanced) as shown below.

Since version 3.0, PyScripter ships with many great looking editor themes (editor syntax coloring), both dark and light. You can also select dark or light styles for the application user interface through the View, Select style menu command.
To change editor themes you need to invoke the Editor Options (Tools, Options, Editor Options or via the Editor context menu), go to the Color Theme tab, select the theme you like and press the "Apply Theme” button. Below you see PyScripter with the Windows 10 Dark style and the Retta editor theme.
Sometimes you may find that although you like the color scheme of a theme, its background is too dark or too light for your taste. It is actually very easy to adjust the darkness of a theme. Just invoke the Editor Options and activate the Syntax Colors tab and find the “Space” element (see below).
The “Space” syntax element is a special one. Its background color is used to paint all empty parts of the editor. It is also the default background of all other elements (i.e. it is used as the background for elements with background set to clNone). Its foreground color is used to paint space, tab and end-of-line marks when “Show special characters” is selected. So, all you have to do to “lighten” a theme is to change the background color of the “Space” element. In the following picture the background color of the Space element was changed to #282828.
A much requested new feature in PyScripter 3.1 is support for code folding. Before I explain how to use it let me make it clear that if you believe that code folding is an unwanted gimmick you can disable it through the Tools, Options, IDE Options menu selection. Just uncheck “Code folding enabled by default” under Editor options.
You can fold sections of the code by clicking the + (plus) signs in the gutter and can unfold folded sections by clicking the – (minus) signs or by clicking at the boxes with the three dots at the end of the lines (see picture above).
Code folding commands
The code folding commands can be fount in the context menu of the editor (i.e. you can see them by right-clicking on the editor). There are editor shortcuts defined for many of these functions. The default editor shortcuts are listed below.
