OK, found it:
- Load entire file ON
- Load partially OFF
- Count number of lines ON (great news: this never worked in v9)

Well, we'll figure this out and turn you back into a happy customer I hope.

You can't sort read-only files because you can't type in them or perform other modifications either.  You can change the setting at the bottom right for the buffer, and then decline to change the file on disk.

What happens if you run "gui-sort" on the SlickEdit command line?

Dan, thanks for the right question:
I'm upgrading from v9, which has been stable and reliable for years, but looks awful on a 4k display.

I really want a v9 that looks great in 4k, and will pay you $1,000s for it.  I need *no* function in v22.

(An extremely happy customer who has turned unhappy.)

SlickEdit® / Re: Suggestion: Vim command mode should be normal mode

Thanks!

Also note that the option to start in 'normal' mode found at Options->'Keyboard and Mouse'->'Vim Options' is currently labeled:
"Start in command mode"

I think it should be changed to:
"Start in normal mode"

P.S.  Moment of head shaking -- why can't I sort a Read-only file?  Is there some setting I need to make to allow this?  (I have 100,000s of read-only text files on this computer.)

Check your File settings.  There is one for "load partially" above a certain size.  You might need to up it if the file is big enough.  It looks like the default is 8MB.

Just out of curiosity, what version are you upgrading from?

I'm actively writing to the file from another process/window.
Does that make it "read-only?"  I'd like to open, sort, and save sections of it to a new filename while it's actively being written to.  Sometimes the runs take 30-50 hours, so I'd like to open it and grab pieces during a run.

VS v9 has allowed this for years (open the live file, sort it, write the sorted file to a new filename)

Thanks - Researcher5

The only thing I see required for that to be on is that the current control is an editor control.  Lee is right, read only would certainly do it.

Is the file Read Only?  It would be disabled in that case, I can't recall if there are any others.

When I open *any* file, Sort is grayed out (the only thing grayed out in the Tools menu).  Happens every time.
Sorry -- Selecting appears to be a red herring.
I can print all screens and send you anything you need.
Thanks - Researcher5
