Semagic 1.2RC2U, full unicode support, only for Windows NT/2000/XP
Download installer.

Semagic 1.2RC2, limited unicode support, for Windows 95/98/ME.
Download installer.

Source code could always be taken here.

Read here about unicode support in both versions.


  1. Toolbars

  2. Macros (Ctrl-Alt-M)

  3. Ability to create link to user with arbitrary name (look at Make link dialog), like this: bradBrad Fitzpatrick. Note: this is not supported by server and thus will lead to huge HTML code inserted in your post.

  4. Help is now a control bar. You can describe custom shortcuts in file help_custom.html. Do not edit help.html - it'll be overwritten by installer.
  5. Text color picker (in the toolbar)

  6. Wrap with tag (Alt-W)

  7. New shortcuts - look at Help. Note: some new shortcuts, like Ctrl-Alt-W accept two parameters, the parameters should be delimited by "!" sign. E.g. if you type "test!strong", select it and press Ctrl-Alt-W it'll lead to <strong>test</strong>

  8. Offline mode - Just edit button in login-dialog

  9. Many thanx to gera, he was the initial contributor of the above features.

  10. Web menu and Logout added to tray menu

  11. Don't e-mail comments post option

  12. Find.. and Replace.. in Edit menu

  13. Music detection in STP Player

  14. New dialog appears when you may loose your post.

  15. Save/Open file now works as usual, e.g. it remembers file name.

  16. You may now change subject field height

  17. Stop flashing added to main menu

Fixed: a lot :)

RC means Release Candidate, first RC was internal release. I'm about to fix this state and after testing period release stable 1.2 version.

Looks great, I'm on XP- there still seems to be a long pause in using the spellcheck and sometimes the old one would "cannot find server" and you have to cntl+alt+del and cancel winword and do it again. Will you be getting a spellcheck like the old lj ones? Some people don't have MS Word and can't spell check...

yeah i noticed this problem too. i do have word, but it takes forever to load and is very annoying. An independent spell check would be very handy.

yeah, i'm having that problem too

it does that just about every time i try to spellcheck. if there is *anything* spelled wrong or not in the dictionary, it gives an error message in lj saying "server busy" (ummm, huh? what does word have to do with servers?) and then it pops up a word window with my "checked" document rather than sending it back to lj

it'd probably be too hard to integrate word's spell-check-as you type feature if it's already using word's spellchecker, huh?

Re: yeah, i'm having that problem too

The server thing, btw, means servers with in windows, not like LJ servers or anything. That's just windows way of saying "Sorry, one of your programs is busy crashing. give it a sec" ;)
