In my previous version SE2007, I swear I had my line flags persisting through buffer closes. Am I missing a setting? I have it flipped in the options to keep line flags on SAVE, which works. But I am in and out of files constantly and am used to managing my own line flags.

I traced out the slick-c code and I am not seeing where the dirty deed is being done. Has something fundamental changed? If there is not an option to flip, can someone point me to the right hooks so I can write this myself?

Thanks

They've never persisted across buffer closes.

However, closing a window doesn't necessarily close the buffer -- other things may hold onto the buffer.  The next time you open a window for that same file, it will use the still-open-but-hidden buffer.  This can give the illusion of line flags persisting across buffer closes.

Ive found out there is a setting to save flags across buffer closes, but it only saves last 200 files.

Wow, you're right.  So others don't have to hunt for it, here's where I found the setting:

Tools | Options, under Application Options \ Auto Restore, the option "Auto restore line modify".

I knew I wasn't dreaming, now if I could only find that magic number 200. Like I haven't got plenty of disk. Just have to start using GUIDs for filenames and I am all set ;)

Yummy line flag macros ahead!
Note:name_info()s need fixing and there is probably a better way possibly involving marker_lines() -- but I forget.

I think the 200 is probably related to performance as well, beyond just disk space cost.

Also, persisting line flags across sessions means that they'll get restored to incorrect places if you edit the file in another editor or sync the file with a source control system.  It also makes it more annoying when SE flags all lines as modified, it requires manual resets more often.

I think the 200 is in def_max_filepos, and can be increased up to 5000.  Is easy to find:  look up AutoRestoreLine flags in slick.sh, look for references for the line modify flag, bang you find the macro code and configurable constants, etc.
