Features and/or Improvements / Feature Notification: Undo is disabled
« Last post by Researcher5 on April 19, 2018, 03:40:14 pm »
v22: This pops up at the bottom.

I don't want Undo disabled, ever.

How do I make that so?  I went to View-->Tools Windows-->Notifications, but it's empty.

Thanks - Researcher5

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

Found a bunch of others including some docs that need to change. Most of these changes will have to wait until v23.

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

To get to the SlickEdit command line click on the message line at the bottom of the editor (to the left of the line indicator and other indicators).  You can also you Esc in almost any emulation (certainly not Vim).

"You can't sort read-only files because you can't type in them or perform other modifications either."

Yes, let's find a fix for that.

64GB of RAM, 8TB of Raid0 SSD, Xeon
I open 2GB files regularly.

Thanks

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.)

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.)
