SlickEdit 2018 v23 Beta Discussion / Re: Minimap parameters and views
« Last post by Clark on August 11, 2018, 01:59:18 pm »
Split vertical and horizontal will be changed to preserve the minimap font and width.

The font issue occurs when switching buffers for other scenarios as well. For example, use Window>Font to change edit window font, switch to a different type of buffer (Unicode vs DBCS) and the font gets reset to the default. Fonts are stored per window but default must be applied in some scenarios. Makes things pretty tricky. Especially since a buffer can be displayed in multiple windows. For now, SlickEdit doesn't try to save any settings per buffer+window. When you consider the number of options that would have to be done this way and auto-restore, it's just not worth it.

Whether the minimap is visible is a per buffer setting. It has to be because it's a per language setting.
SlickEdit 2018 v23 Beta Discussion / old bug, but it always annoys me...

Ctrl+E is a really common shortcut in Windows for global search.
Ctrl+F is a local scope search, and Ctrl+E is a bigger search. (Try onenote, chrome, etc).

Anyways, goto Tools->Options.
Type Ctrl+E or Ctrl+F and then Buffer ---

And, you get *nothing*...

The search box in tools option has the very weird feature that it allows you to enter control characters!
It should not.

Also, Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown really ought to move up and down thru the contents pane on the left.
SlickEdit 2018 v23 Beta Discussion / Minimap parameters and views
« Last post by jporkkahtc on August 11, 2018, 03:54:21 am »
So open buffer, enable minimap
Make the map a bit wider, and zoom in a few times.
Now Window->SplitVertical.
The new view I would expect to be identical, but it seems to get default settings for the minimap.

#2: Enable multiple files per window.
Open several buffers and a single view.
Enable minimap.
Resize the map and zoom in.

Now next buffer, prev buffer - returning to the original buffer.
This seems to always reset the minimap.

I'd expect that the minimap setting either be specific to the buffer, buffer+view combo, or the view alone - any of these would make sense.
Always resetting to the default isn't nice.

#3: The only setting that appears to stick to the specific buffer is minimap visible or not --- In case #1 split view, turning off the minimap in one view turns it off in both, but resizing and zooming affects only a single view.

What's the trick to make this happen? I haven't been able to make this happen.
SlickEdit 2018 v23 Beta Discussion / Re: Minimap extends selection
« Last post by Clark on August 11, 2018, 02:34:08 am »
Fixed for next beta.

If you want to extend the selection, hold down Shift (Shift+Click in the minimap). Otherwise, this operates as if you clicked in the edit window (selection goes away except for locked selection).

This makes a lot more sense.

Shift+Click goes to beginning of line - make more sense when extending selection.
Click goes to first non blank which seems more useful than placing the cursor in column 1.

Multiple cursors are canceled.

Thanks for noticing this.

WRT JIT Debugging on Windows:
So, even thought I enabled JIT in Visual Studio, native application crashes where just silently terminating.
I don't know in what world this makes sense - crazy.

I found:
Creating an string key Auto == "1" under *both*
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug
HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug
is necessary.

Now, when foo.exe crashes, I get the nice dialog that lets me debug the crashed process.

I have no idea why this is needed now, seems like there used to always be a dialog on process crashes.
This is in for the next beta.  For Gradle versions < 4.9, it only works for build.gradle files SlickEdit has generated for new projects.  For Gradle versions >= 4.9, it uses the "--args" parameter, and works for new and imported projects. The arguments can be specified in the Gradle Options dialog.  Running the debugger will pick up those options as well, or you can use "Debug -> Start with arguments..." to use different arguments for that debugger session.

Fixed for next beta.  That example packed a lot into a small space.  It surfaced a parser bug, a lexer bug, and a bug with how top level objects are handled that gave the second object in the file an extra torquing. :)

In C++ (maybe other applicable languages also), I'd like a command (that I could bind to a key) so that when my cursor is on a variable, I run this command and the data type of the variable is placed into the clipboard so that I may paste it wherever I wish. Currently I do Ctrl+. to go to definition and get it from there, but this new feature would be faster.
