Features and/or Improvements / Re: Why is "Sort" grayed out?

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.

I can't reproduce this.  What kind of file are you working with?  How many lines are selected?

I'm a 20-year user of VS, new to v22.
I open a text file, Select-All, go to the Tool menu, and Sort is grayed out.

Why is Sort grayed out?  How do I sort?

Thanks - Researcher5

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

Thanks again. v22.02 has a new def_vi_command_mode_msg variable which defaults to blank so you get no "-- NORMAL --" or "-- COMMAND --" message by default. However, we missed the "Already in command mode" message. We will tweak this too.

v23 will have an option for Vim syntax regular expressions (new default for Vim emulation). Also you will be able to turn off regular expressions to effect the '/' and :substitute commands and optionally turn regex on for a specific command (currently deviates from Vim options). For example, "/a*b/n" will disable regex syntax. If the regex is turned off, "/a*b/~" will turn on Vim syntax regex ("/a*b/l" would turn on Perl syntax).

Personally, I like to have regex syntax disabled and only turn it on for specific search commands when I want it. If Vim has a way to do this, I'm not aware of it. \V almost turns off all regex stuff but backslash is still a special character.

Example:

The somewhat vi centric error message:
"Already in command mode"

displayed when <ESC> is hit too many times, should be changed to the more vim centric:
"Already in normal mode"

Thanks,

Thanks.  I've got a couple of possibilities to look at now.  I'll let you know once I have something for you to try.
