Maybe on the Edit macros popup you could add a "Repeat/Add last command button"?
Maybe you could also add Move Up/Down buttons for "sorting/arranging" the macros?
Maybe later i add it. Not now in 4.0.

&Hotkeys: removed all &Keys from Macro dlg. From File-New menu too. Tks.

About Ctrl+W: u can use keyb commnd "Close all" (equivalent to XX btn).

Greetings ... some more items for your consideration ...

It seems "&Case sensitive" finding is NOT working when I use F3 with the Find popup closed ...

The "boxes"/items on the "Options" popup could really use some &hotkeys and maybe also the "Apply" button ...
at least few (or more) on every tab ...

... and ...
normally (in my experience) files are added to the /File/Recent list AFTER they have been closed ...
SyW adds them as soon as they have been opened ...
which means, when I open a dozen or so files at once -
a dozen files are replaced on the MRU list with files that are open in SyW ...
from my persepective I would rather have those dozen older/recent files still in the list ...

... and when/after I close an open file, I have no idea where in the MRU list it will be ...

... I also need to ask/submit the following ...

It would be nice to be able to have whitespaces without the ¶ characters ...

I (still) don't see how to view the same file side by side vertically split ...
There is "Move to other view" but "Copy to other view" would be great ... NP++ has both ..
and when splitting views vertically,
it seems SyW should/could make sure that both sides either have or don't have a tab bar ...
I mean without enabling "Always show tabs" ...

a hotkey to toggle horizontal splits would be nice ...
as well as to go between sides of horizontally split view.
After I do a horizontal split -
- "Sync horizontal scrolling" is greyed-out until I move the file to the other view;
- then there is no horizontal scrolling after I enable it ...

It would be nice if users could tab into the box where hotkeys are entered in the Options popup ...
The &Jump item makes it impossible to assign Alt-J ...
Same with &Filter ... but (with English) there is the &File menu item,
so Alt-F would not like be(come) an assigned hotkey.
When I hit Alt-Shift-Space to set a hotkey, the Options popup reacts like I had hit Alt-Space ...

The SyW GUI does this also when I have A-S-Space assigned as a hotkey ...
seems to be an issue in general with SyW ...

Is there any easy way to go to page 22 or 44 or whatever in this TotalComm forum?

SAME file can't be splitted vertical. Only horz by splitter near tab caption.

>>that both sides either have or don't have a tab bar ...
I don't want such. Two sides can have different Num of tabs.

>>After I do a horizontal split -- "Sync horizontal scrolling" is greyed-out until I move the file to the other view;
Of course, u need OTHER file to be opened in other view. Horz split(u mean split of SAME file?) is not ok for SyncScroll.

Greetings ...
I am in the middle of some massive coding work
and so really spending some time with SyW (& NP++ of course) ...
I submit all these items only for your consideration in case you might find any of them of value.

The CPU usage issue still makes SyW seem "sluggish".

I am having an acp "auto-show" issue.
If I type WinS - the list popups up @ the 4th character;
after I hit enter & choose WinSet, the list pops up again
because WinSetTitle is still an option.
Seems to me - after I hit enter, the list should not auto-show again on that word ...
until after I move off & then maybe move back to that word ...

Ctrl-B (matching bracket) does not work sometimes when going up/backwards -
even though it always works going down/forwards & there are no mismatched braces ...
It stops on some (non-match) nested/intermediate {brace}.
I haven't tried this on [brackets] - but braces are nested much more often than brackets/parentheses ...

SAME file can't be splitted vertical. Only horz by splitter near tab caption.
Well, this is an important/useful feature. I use it all the time in NP++ ...

Of course, u need OTHER file to be opened in other view. Horz split(u mean split of SAME file?) is not ok for SyncScroll.
Well, it seems to me that sync scrolling of same file split horizontal view is normal/useful/needed & could/should be possible ...
SyW seems lacking (to me) in same file split view functionality ...
- can't (yet?) view vertically;
- no horizontal-split hotkeys;
- no sync-scrolling;
I do same file split viewing often - when I need to see two different parts of the script at the same time.

... uneven tab bars makes sync-viewing a bit difficult ...

Makes SyW seem "buggy" ...

... 2 other items I forgot to mention ...

SyW does not release directories of opened/closed files.
I have to close SyW to delete any directory of a file that SyW once had open ...
I can delete the file but not the folder!

The Edit macros popup allows running any macro X number of times ...
It would be nice if users could hit enter on the TSpinEdit1 box and have the macro run ...
also, computers have made some people like me mentally lazy ...
it would be nice if users could enter a line # and have the macro run until (& including) that line number ...
otherwise I have to "do the math" and calculate exactly how many line numbers to &Play ...

>> (matching bracket) does not work sometimes when going up/backwards -
Need file sample. with braces. and position of bad brace.

>>Well, this is an important/useful feature
I can make splittin of SAME file vertical too(just like OTHER file split can be vert/horz).
Is that what needed?
SyncScroll on SAME file not possible(Sync needs equals OffsetX for horz-sync,
OffsetY for vert-sync positions of 2 files).


>>... uneven tab bars makes sync-viewing a bit difficult
Example. U have 2 tabs on left, 22 tabs on right. Tabbar sizes different. How to make them
equal?

hi,

don't know if this is some bug or not..

i have a line like this:

-------------------- blah blah blahhhh

now i want to just select the red part by a double click. that doesn't work, the cursor only moves one position to the left. a triple clicl selects the whole line, as expected.

but maybe this is intended. it's the same also for other characters ($, #,.) etc.
