Features and/or Improvements / Expand "Enumerate" options like Boxer

Expand the Enumerate options to match Boxer (Auto Number in Boxer terms). Also, add the ability to apply the Enumeration at a specific column.

It doesn't help any, but I saw this once after installing a Visual Studio beta (or alpha?) with warnings about this sort of thing.  It's kind of strange when you're still typing.
SlickEdit 2018 v23 Beta Discussion / Missing references case3 in beta1
« Last post by rowbearto on August 12, 2018, 05:54:22 pm »
I uploaded missingrefs3.tar.gz to support.

See the README file inside for how to reproduce the issue.

It is a different test case than the previous 2 I uploaded, not sure if the root cause is the same as the other issues or not.

What happens if you drag this same edit window on to the primary display (_A and _B look the worst)?

Hmmph!   When I view these screenshots in a browser (Chrome or Safari), the browser seems to do some degree of smoothing which makes the text more readable.  But when I DL the PNGs and view in image Preview, the issue is very easy to see -- it looks like what I see in SlickEdit.
SlickEdit® / Font rendering on Mac
« Last post by eitheta on August 11, 2018, 09:40:44 pm »
My current company is a mostly-Mac shop, and I use SlickEdit (v22.0.2.1) on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015). 

Since switching from 24" to 27" external displays, text in the editing windows of SlickEdit is borderline unreadable, and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it.
With a pair of 24" Dell U2415H displays (1920x1200) attached (via DisplayPort), things were okay, apart from the lack of work space.  I've lately switched out the monitors for 27" displays.  First I tried a pair of Dell U2718Q (4k).  Now I have a U2715H and a U2717D (both native 2560x1440).

In the SlickEdit text windows on the 27" displays, all text/code is really badly rendered.  It looks like text is suffering really terrible ratio-rescaling artifacts.  In all other windows (e.g. Terminal, SublimeText, Finder, etc), text is clear and legible.  Even if I set everything to use the same font & size.  With the 4k displays, I attributed this to some very negative interaction between SE and the Mac's display scaling.  So I've switched to the current 27" displays, running at default (native, 2560x1440) resolution, but the text is still horrible.  I figure there must be some adjustment I can do to fix this, but I just can't find it.

Even in the other panes of SlickEdit windows, where I've set all the fonts to Menlo 12.  I've experimented with other fonts and sizes, to no avail.

Plugging these same monitors into Windows and Linux boxes, text looks fine in SlickEdit. 

I've attached two screenshots to show the issue.  For these, I've gone into Tools::Options::Appearance::Fonts and changed font for every Element to Menlo 12, so that both screenshots show clear text and crap text, in what is supposed to be the same font, in different panes of the same window.  In each screenshot, text in the Sample Code pane is distorted, and text (same font & size) in other panes looks great.

I've tried Dark Profiles and Light Profiles for syntax coloring.  Both equally bad.
I've tried Tools::Options::Appearance::Advanced::"Mac Retina Display (High DPI) Support" = "Auto", "Always On" and "Always Off", restarting SE whenever I change this.  It affects SE windows on the built-in (retina) display, but has no effect on the external displays.

Any suggestions?  My coworkers use ST3 and suggest I do the same, but I'm not quite ready to make that jump yet.

Thanks in advance!

I'm working in two display mode and have moved the "Search Results" window to the secondary display and now want to put the "Build" window as another tab along with the "Search Results". The top, bottom, left and right click boxes appear on the secondary display but a second set appear on the primary monitor with the middle click box. When I try and move the cursor over to get it on the primary display it disappears.

SlickEdit Pro 2018 (v23.0.0.2)
"Maximum size to backup" now looks at the size of the file you are saving and the size of the original file.

Auto-restore will now apply large file settings (i.e. undo gets turned off if reload really large file etc.)
