SlickEdit® / Re: padstar undo unassignable

@ealbers: While you raise valid concerns in your posts regarding the lack of support for certain Brief functionality, the use of personal insults detracts from what is supposed to be a professional forum.

The SlickEdit Community Guiding Principles (see,22.msg0.html#new) include the following:

"Promote the respectful exchange of ideas, experiences, opinions, and best practices of power programmers."

I (and, I am sure, others) would appreciate it if you would refrain from personal attacks on others, including the SlickEdit team, who are probably constrained regarding the way they can respond to such comments from customers.
SlickEdit® / Re: How to color a log file.

As is, no .. but it could with a little modification.

Two ways:
1 There could be an option to highlight the entire line instead of just the selected word.
2 Supporting matching regular expressions instead of literal strings.

I've thought about doing #2 before, but I like #1 better. I'll see what I can do.

I am getting it to highlight a word, but I would like it to highlight the entire line. Is there a way to specify this on the form?

I bet you are typing Shift+Space - that always terminates the block selection - very annoying but avoidable.
Try UNDO one step - that usually brings back the selection.

Ah...  there's something non-obvious you need to do.

First, use the open tool window. If you have a file called test.gz. Type test.gz/test.  Then you can open the file. It treats it like a zip or tar file (like a directory).

I can't remember if we put in an option to auto crack open a .gz file. We will look into this.
Features and/or Improvements / Reference like display for search results

The ability to use normal search and have it shown in the format that the References tree shows, organized by file and function/area it is in. This is often significantly more helpful to me than seeing the line itself. Results found in comments would be new work but I think this would be an awesome feature.

SE does this already when you Find References but the symbol is not found. A message pops up and says that a search was done instead and shows the nice tree under References.

The real initial problem happened before I killed the program.  I don't think that the project was corrupt, at least not by that shutdown.  I later understood how I removed the files in question.  I was using "control ." to look for a function that was previously in the 9500 file index, but not now in the index as I had removed the source file from the project.
I just tried to duplicate this and failed.  It behaved correctly.  So I think we have to write this off as background info unless we see it again.

I'm testing 22 here while I otherwise use SE 17.  I've noted in another post that it seems much more likely for me to get a busy cursor in response to an index search than in 17.  I've been advised to move to an SSD, but that's not in the immediate plan.  This was just the worst example of that long search.  I think all of these long searches happen before the index is complete.  Maybe that's all of it.
It does not.  You are right, it should be there.  It might be a hotfix/22.0.3 thing at this point, I'm stuck on something else.

What kind of a search are you referring to here?  Ctrl+Dot (push-tag), Ctrl+/ (references), a traditional text search (single file, regex, multi-file?), or Find Symbol tool window?  Sample source is helpful if it was a tagging issue.

Also, if you killed your editor, you could have left the tag files in a corrupt state, I would recommend rebuilding the workspace tag file from scratch (Project > Rebuild Tag File...)

"Support for reading .gz files without decompressing them first"

This right there is the reason I jumped on this beta today.  Unfortunately, I'm unable to get it working.  Is there anything I need to toggle on?  Or are there version limitations?


This is the version information for what we're using:
