Features and/or Improvements / Re: paste-special
« Last post by Clark on Today at 01:04:34 pm »
I like the paste special concept. Just need to come up with the right features. You've listed some good possibilities. I've definitely had times where I've wanted a block selection pasted as lines. The multiple cursors example is useful. Not sure about how to handle a mismatch between the number of cursors and number of lines in the clipboard. Seems to me they should match.

3.8.0 works OK for me.
I was just wondering in general (since other editors have committed their support to the cmake repository directly).

Not in the near future. CMake's API's are still going through a lot of changes. For example, the original code we wrote was very broken for the new version. It makes more sense for us to build and test CMake versions until CMake's API's stabilize. I would hope with a very minor release they wouldn't break our changes but only time will tell.

For now, if you need some changes in a new version of CMake, please make a request.
SlickEdit® / Re: Windows Line endings (CRLF)
« Last post by Clark on May 23, 2017, 03:20:05 pm »
With the current algorithm, SlickEdit does not handle files with mixed line breaks. It only checks the first chunk and then assumes the platform default line endings.

If you have a trashed file like this, you can convert it with the following steps:

  Use the Open dialog to open the file and choose "Windows/DOS (CRLF)"
  Use the Save As dialog and choose Windows/DOS (CR/LF) or Unix/MacOS(LF) depending on what you want.

If you prefer not to convert your file but want opened files to be treated as DOS line endings, set the Options>Languages>[language|all languages]>File Options>Line format to "DOS/Windows (CRLF)"

The whole file has CRLF (0x0D0x0A). But even if there were a mix, I would think that it wouldn't matter if the line ended in an LF or CRLF, if there are whitespace characters preceding the line ending, they should be removed.

Do you guys have plans to submit it to cmake so it will be included in future versions?
(They are on 3.8.1 now)
SlickEdit® / Windows Line endings (CRLF)
« Last post by jporkkahtc on May 22, 2017, 11:23:29 pm »
When a file is loaded with CRLF line endings encoding, Slick always breaks lines on  (LF) and (CRLF), but not on (CR) alone.

It should not break on (LF) alone.

Related issue I found is that when Slick loading a file and deciding which line end style, it seems to pick just the first one. I've got some files where the file line is terminated with (LF) only, but all other lines are (CRLF) -- and slick loads these as  Unix/Mac(LF).

SlickEdit® / Re: How to tag assembler files together with C in a Project
« Last post by Dennis on May 22, 2017, 08:17:47 pm »
How are you searching for the variable?  There are a lot of different ways to work with symbols in SlickEdit.

How are these symbols declared in the assembly language modules?  It may be that they are being treated as static variables.  Some sample code would be very helpful here.

Also, you should try SlickEdit 2016.  The Assembly tagging has been rewritten in C++, it's faster and better.
SlickEdit® / Re: 21.0.2: Delete trailing whitespace bug when pasting?
« Last post by Dennis on May 22, 2017, 08:12:10 pm »
When you checked for trailing non-space chars, did you also look for CR (ascii 13).  You could get those if you had a file with Unix line endings and pasted in text with DOS line endings.
