SlickEdit® / Re: can't do file save as in floating edit window
« Last post by Clark on February 05, 2019, 07:21:41 pm »
Type "gui-save-as" on the SlickEdit command line on that floating MDI window. That will work.

On Windows and Unix: Alt+F A will also work if you have alt menu hot keys turned on.

On Windows: Clicking on the Save As menu item with the mouse also works.

macOS: The default emulation (macOS) doesn't have or support alt menu hot keys. If you chose CUA emulation and turn on alt menu hot keys, then you can press Command+F and cursor to the Save As menu item (macOS doesn't support hot key letters-- IMO macOS flaw).
SlickEdit® / Re: crashes with dark theme selected on Mac OS
« Last post by Clark on February 05, 2019, 06:56:05 pm »
We are working on a fix for this. Might be a while. This crash only occurs in the latest macOS. Some haven't seen this because their config was already in Dark theme mode. Crash only happens when switching themes after SlickEdit is already running.

In the meantime you can follow these steps:

* For safety, close all files since the last step is easiest to just let SlickEdit crash.
* Edit your user.cfg.xml
* Look for or add a misc.options profile.
   <misc.options n="misc.options" version="1">
* add the following property setting:
   <app_theme v="Dark"/>
* Save the file. When you are prompted to reload the options, Yes causes a crash. It's probably best to click Yes anyway because you want to make sure your new option settings take effect and aren't overridden when you exit.
* Start SlickEdit. Now you should see the Dark theme.

If you don't have an existing misc.options profile, here's what the settings would look like:

File: user.cfg.xml
   <misc.options n="misc.options" version="1">
      <app_theme v="Dark"/>

SlickEdit® / Re: Day One with SlickEdit Pro 2018 (v23.0.0.11 64-bit) Not Great

Check your display settings in both cases - when 3rd screen is attached and when it is not.
Ensure that the Scale setting for all your monitors is always 100% for all displays in both configurations.

The problem I have is my laptop has a built in hires display, so Windows likes to set scaling to 200% or so, while my external monitors don't need this.

@jporkkahtc, that ties in exactly with what I discovered about when my UI breakage, I use my console monitor as a third screen sometimes, so have it attached via it's spare DisplayPort.
Naturally Windows dicks about with the displays whenever the monitor is turned on/off, and depending on what I am doing I don't always notice immediately that Slickedit has broken itself.
SlickEdit® / Re: beautifying obfuscated code

DOH! Patrick you are right on the money. What I provided is not even a program. Now that I see I compressed the entire program into a single preprocessor definition I will give slickedit a chance without making that mistake.  I will check out the obfuscated C site- sounds like you have which gives me great hope lol!

@jporkkahtc that is exactly what I want but I'll retry my experiment. Then I will certainly look into your tool.

 The macros I've seen from Patrick in other sections seem like they could easily load the entire buffer into a response file... pass it to the tool... and pass it back into your file buffer. The only thing is that of course it would need to be configured externally. Also, it would not be able to correct as you type.

Thank you everyone.
SlickEdit® / can't do file save as in floating edit window
« Last post by Graeme on February 05, 2019, 12:55:23 am »
If I have a file open in a floating edit window, there's no way to do "save as".  I have to move the file to the main window.  Maybe the file tab menu should have a "save as" option.

Not exactly what you are asking for, but there is Tools > Options > Import/Export Options > Restore Default Options...  You can select and restore settings at a pretty fine granularity here.  However, it does not show you which ones you have modified, or your value vs. the default value.  That would be a useful feature to add here, but it would require quite a bit of work on the import/export framework.

That UI break appears to be what happens when you change the display setting in Windows 10, "Scale and layout" - if you change scale.
When you change scale back, it doesn't fix it -- you have to restart Slickedit.

The scale can change without you doing it explicitly simply by changing your monitor setup - connect/disconnect external monitor, and I think also thru remote desktop.

In Slickedit, select dark theme.
Tools > Options > Appearance > General -> Application Theme == DARK.
You may also want to set
Tools > Options > Appearance > Colors
To dark so the whole app matches.

When slick is using DarkTheme, it doesn't suffer from this monitor configuration problem.
If only Slickedit had a built in Light theme to match the system ...

A command line tool that aggregates several other code beautifiers/stylers and provide a common UI to control them.

It would be nice if it had a slickedit plugin :-)

Looks like it might not be maintained anymore though, but a neat idea.
Features and/or Improvements / Options and defaults
« Last post by jporkkahtc on February 04, 2019, 07:42:19 pm »
I'd like is Options would tell me which items are set to their default values and which items have been customized.

Just a little "*" or something next to each line item that isn't the default value.

Bonus points: Provide a way to reset any individual item to its default, or a way to see what the default value is.
