Minimap and indenting
« on: August 23, 2018, 05:46:30 pm »
The  popup in the minimap is brilliant.
It reminds me of this old game, megabug - kind of like pacman, but it would magnify the area around the player.

I found though that when browsing a file with deep nesting, the popup would be blank - because it only displays the first N columns - which happened to be all whitespace.

Maybe the popup could shift the text left when there is so much indenting?

Also, I don't understand why clicking inside the elevator doesn't place the cursor there, only clicking outside of the elevator does this. Seems like it should, especially when navigating with that popup.

Not sure if trying to disambiguate a click and drag vs just a click will be error prone and/or annoying. No other products do this. That doesn't mean it's a bad idea. Maybe this needs to be a pick your poison option.
