Is it possible to swap the archaic cmd shell in windows to Powershell?
SlickEdit® / Re: Wishlist: git patch add

IMO git is so pervasive now SE should provide first class support instead of trying to shoehorn it into a generic UI.
Figured out what I want - it is the "show-statements".

Now I'd like a way to expand everything that I may have had, but keep the + signs. I think to do this I need to do a "show-all" (expands everything, but also gets rid of + signs), and then do "show-statements" again. Now I'll bind this to a key so I can do this quickly.
Features and/or Improvements / Find Symbol - Exact
« Last post by jporkkahtc on June 22, 2017, 11:46:43 pm »
In FindSymbol the default is prefix matching.
So, if I type "max" in SearchFor, it finds tons of stuff from lots of system headers.
If I really only want to find max, as in a function called "max()", or a macro called max, it is a pain.
I can turn on RE matching and type "^max$", but I'm just too lazy - and that makes the matching *much* slower.

I assume that when "Match substring" is off, then the results should be the same as matching with RE and prefixing with ^, right?

Exact matching doesn't even need to have a checkbox, just sort the results differently --- put exact matches first.
I'd like to be able to have a "+/-" in the margin for each brace pair in my C++ code, so I can collapse any braces - whether it is a function, if statement, for loop, etc.

How to configure this with selective display? I'm having a hard time figuring it out.

You might want to try the 21.0 trial.  There have been improvements to this feature.  There is a "Match color" checkbox, and a drop down menu that lets you get to commonly used ones.  You can customize the menu, but the most common ones are to search only in strings, or not in strings and comments.

There are lots of other improvements since 17.0 too.  These are just some of the improvements between 2015 and 2016 (20.0 and 21.0)

To factor out Symbol Coloring, if that is what you are using, try increasing the amount of time before symbol coloring kicks in.

To determine if Symbol Coloring is the culprit, simply turn it off temporarily and see if your scrolling works better:  View > Symbol Coloring > [uncheck] Enable Symbol Coloring

To adjust how quickly Symbol Coloring kicks in, go to:
Tools > Options > Editing > Context Tagging > Symbol coloring performance > Update after (ms) idle.  Give yourself a whole second, maybe that will help.

For 17.0, click on the "Color..." button.  In the Color Coding Search Options dialog that it launches, click "Reset", and then click "OK".
