Bookmarks not working in txt files
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:04:44 pm »
Hello, I have bookmarks working correctly in my .as files but for some reason, I cant set them in my txt files. I didn't see anything in language settings that would have disabled them for some reason.

Also, does the modified color only work for the margin? Is there anyway to implement a color code for the entire line that can signify that a line has been modified? for example, my normal color is black backgroudn with grey text. if the line has been modified, I would like the text to be light blue.

There is no reason why bookmarks shouldn't work in text files...as long as the files belong to your workspace.  The bookmark system in Eclipse does not work for files which are not part of your workspace.  Is that the problem?

Unfortunately, no...it only affects the margin.

yea, that is probably it, I want to use slickedit to edit other files that might not be part of the current workspace (task lists, etc).   is there no way to get it working with files outside of the workspace?

You can certainly use SlickEdit to edit files external to your workspace, you just won't be able to set bookmarks in those files.
