SlickEdit® / Re: keybinding 'C-.' not working after ubuntu upgrade
« Last post by Clark on June 24, 2024, 01:17:39 AM »
Thanks for posting. I didn't realize some of my recently installed Ubuntu VMs had this issue.

Run ibus-setup to fix these short cuts.

Please ignore this issue, I found the problem soon after posting.

In ubuntu 22.04, some genius decided to automatically run a daemon called IBus, and have it take over Ctrl+; and Ctrl+. I deleted the ibus hot keys, and the slickedit problem was resolved.

SlickEdit® / keybinding 'C-.' not working after ubuntu upgrade
« Last post by MgFrobozz on June 22, 2024, 11:23:07 PM »
Any suggestions on how to debug this problem?

My binding file (vunxkeys.e) shows ...
def  'C-,'= pop_bookmark;
def  'C-.'= push_tag;

In Tools/Options with Keyboard and Mouse/Key Bindings selected it shows what I would expect when I hit Ctrl-comma in "search by key sequence" ("Ctrl+,), and shows the binding to be pop-bookmark. However, when I hit Ctrl-period in "search by key sequence", it shows an "e", with a dashed-line, and shows no binding. Clicking on the red-X button next to that box won't clear it, but it will clear if I hit Esc.

The utility xev shows what I'd expect for hitting and releasing the combo:
KeyPress for Control_L
KeyPress for period
KeyRelease for period
KeyRelease for Control_L

This was working properly before I upgraded my OS from ubuntu 2020-04 LTS to 2022-04 LTS. It's almost certainly related to the upgrade, but I don't know enough about the internals of slickedit to debug it.

Features and/or Improvements / Ability to easily see how to disable a popup
« Last post by Ken D on June 21, 2024, 10:47:11 PM »
My request stems from the fact that I always have to hunt through menu after menu to figure out how to disable yet another new pop-up window for weeks each time I upgrade slickedit.

1) Add to every pop-up window a link to the specific entry in the settings maze that controls this pop-up.
      * (If you do not have a setting that controls the popup - then the feature is not complete - so don't ship it!)
2) Bonus points if you can also display the event that triggered the window opening.
3) Even better if you also add the name of the variable that controls that window so I can add _do_new_annoying_distraction = 0 to my custom macros to get rid of it on all of my machines.

rant...

I know there is contention between "we added this new feature and no one knows about it unless we turn it on by default" and "this will annoy some people"... but, to be honest, I have started recommending vscode to our new hires instead of slickedit because of the sheer number of unwanted interruptions.

I mean... really???  A popup window that asks if i want to insert "else" or "else if"...

It takes less time to type either of those choices than it does to deal with the interruption of a pop-up that takes my eyes and mind away from what I'm doing.

Or - I'm entering code and the text in the window scrolls and now the mouse is over a number - so - suddenly I am distracted by a pop-up to tell me the hexidecimal value of that number over by the mouse pointer and I was not touching the mouse.

Or the little pop-up with the word "Block" as the title showing up for no reason I can discern.

Do the long term slickedit insiders really run with all of these features turned on?   How do they focus?

...end rant.

I can't seem to get this patch file to work. I wonder if it's because it's for a CRLF file. Please post the entire new file so I can diff it to see the changes.

Something like this:  Would also need to add docs about the new tag(s) to Admin.xml

It would be helpful if there were a way to modify a setting like this in Admin.xml.

Code: [Select]
<DefVar Name="def_search_result_sorted_filenames" Value="1"/>
I frequently spin up a new editor in a default configuration to search log directories:  vs +new -sc /tmp/defcon7 .
