SlickEdit® / Modifying stuff in
« Last post by jporkkahtc on February 20, 2018, 03:44:13 pm »
What is a convenient way to modify and test changes to files in
Just unzip the whole thing and place it in plugins?

If I want to modify just one file can I do that without unpacking the whole thing?
Or without replacing the whole thing?
SlickEdit® / Re: Still seeing text unselect itself
« Last post by texasaggie97 on February 20, 2018, 03:23:44 pm »
So after multiple days of not seeing the issue with 3f ("Current Context" toolbar) turned off, I turned it back on and am seeing it again and it has started happening again, but it took close to a day.

Should I just leave that disabled, or is there something else I can do to help track it down more?
SlickEdit® / Re: v22 memory leak?

No boost. But the project does make liberal use of the more common STL types (string, vector, list, map, etc).
SlickEdit® / File types associations
« Last post by jporkkahtc on February 19, 2018, 10:57:27 pm »
In Windows explorer if you right-click on a file and select "Open With", then pick out Slickedit - then double clicking on that file type in the near-future will work.

Fast forward to when you next upgrade slickedit, and now this is broken.
Now that I've installed VS 22.0.2, double-clicking on .md files is broken because Explorer doesn't know where Slickedit is.

I know that the user right-clicking and setting the default program sets the "@=Slickedit" entry in the registry.
I don't know who set HKCR\SlickEdit\shell\open\command, but it should get updated.
Note: I installed 22.0.2, then I uninstalled 22.0.1 and 22.0.0.

Note that Python3 has a nice solution to the multi versions thing: The python launcher "py.exe".
It is registered with Windows, and it will in turn run the correct version of python.
This allows you to install and uninstall various versions of python without getting into trouble with the registry.

I'd imagine an install path like
    C:\Program Files\SlickEdit Pro\win\vs.exe
which is not version specific.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


@="\"C:\\Program Files\\SlickEdit Pro 22.0.0\\win\\vs.exe\" \"%1\""

Are you using Boost, or heavily using the STL in your code?

Sorry. Missed that one. You can add a string definition for $' yourself. We will add a hot fox for this.
SlickEdit® / Re: Current Line Foreground Color broke with SE

Thank you for reporting this!
We are investigating the problem. It looks like the Tools > Options > Appearance > Colors / Current Line / Inherit check box is misbehaving. If you check the box, you can probably see your foreground color, but it should not have that effect. I would expect that it should only check the contrast and adjust to make sure there is a significant contrast between background and foreground. Our developers are looking into it and we will update you as soon as we have news.

Thanks for the fixes with $() and heredoc in 22.0.2.

Unfortunately, the color coding of the following code is still not correct:

Code: [Select]
function test1
bash -c $'echo \'Hello World\''


function test2
echo test2

Please see Reply #2 for the screenshot.
SlickEdit User Macros / Atmel Studio 7.0 sync with Slick Edit
« Last post by at5dapa1 on February 18, 2018, 05:56:33 pm »
Had to play recently with Atmel Studio and even I liked its black theme I couldn't cope with mising basic preview feature like SE has ("Peek definition" is missing from AS 7.0) so had to revive an old sync macro, as AS is based on Visual Studio 2015.
The macro helps jumping quickly from AS to SE or inverse and is based on a dll originated few years ago by Gary Ash (files, instructions and full source code attached).
Note: the dll is compiled for Windows 64-bit, if 32-bit is needed the source code is attached, just open SEtoVS.sln, select Release/Win32 and Rebuild.
