Emacs inspired narrow-to-region
« on: March 08, 2011, 10:52:39 PM »
I have written this years ago ... and have used it for years.  I looked around and did not see anything similar

Command Name:
narrow-to-region, & narrowTog

Most recently tested on:
SlickEdit 15.0

Originally written for v6.0

Extends VSE's selective display  feature to mimic Emacs' narrow-to-region functionality.
Select a region of your buffer, then invoke narrowTognarrowTog will hide the areas above and below
your selected region.  Invoke narrowTog again to unhide the area (restoring the line selection).

Save the macro file locally and load it via Macro > Load.

Also attaching a pretty outdated bmp image that I use in a toolbar button bound to narrowTog
