Cool - I never looked at that toolwindow -- thanks.

I'm working on speeding this dialog up right now, and I'll see how many of these ideas I can incorporate.

Some of this is available in the Backup History tool window.

But it think there is something else going on, because I can configure V21 to use a new vsdelta directory (created new from scratch) and V22 still has the startup problem after that.

What is in the vsdelta directory before?  Are they still in the root config directory?

SlickEdit 2017 v22 Beta Discussion / File History on large files
« Last post by jporkkahtc on August 09, 2017, 07:03:50 pm »
Great that File History can now efficiently save history for large files.

However, there is no quick way to get to old versions.

I've got a text file, about 20MB.
I edited it several times and saved - to create a backup history.
The last edit I deleted the majority of the file - leaving just 2KB.

Now, to restore the original I have to use BackupHistory.

BackupHistory always displays a side-by-side Diff.

A side-by-side Diff on a large file is *really slow*, taking about 48 seconds according to the Slick profiler.

The context menu in BackupHistory on the file versions currently has just 1 menu items, "Compare version X to version Y".

#1: It should also include a few extra items:
  • Open This version
  • Restore this version (overwriting the current file with this one)
  • View this version
This would allow me to get to old versions much quicker - especially when I do not need to see the diff at all.


#2: Also it should be possible to abort the diffing in BackupHistory -- If I clicked on a large file here I could be waiting for many minutes with no way to abort this thing.


#3: In BackupHistory, the top-left pane should show the file size along with the date - given that we can have large files now, the filesize is a big clue that accessing it may be really slow.

It can also be helpful when trying to find the version with a lot of changes.

#4: Nitpick: In BackupHistory, the top-left pane shows "Version", but in the top-right pane it shows "Revision".

Which is it, a version or a revision?

There are 385 vsdelta files.   90+% of them are less than 100KB.  The largest is 2.56MB.  About 30 fall in that range between 100KB and 2MB.

But it think there is something else going on, because I can configure V21 to use a new vsdelta directory (created new from scratch) and V22 still has the startup problem after that.

Also, ESC should cancel the drag and restore the toolbar to its original location.

ESC should also work for Toolwindows - but currently ESC drops them where they currently are.

SlickEdit 2017 v22 Beta Discussion / Dragging toolbars
« Last post by jporkkahtc on August 09, 2017, 06:45:25 pm »
While a toolbar is being dragged around it should be on top of all other Slick windows (perhaps over all windows -- alwaysontop).

If you drag a toolbar around while Options is open, the toolbar is behind Options - so you can drag  and even dock this toolbar while it is completely hidden.


This doesn't happen with all toolbars, but it does for sure with my new custom toolbar.

When you drag a toolbar around slick will automatically snap it into specific locations - and previews this by rearranging the Slick UI to show where it would go if you drop it.

However, there is no way to override this -- say I want the toolbar to float near the top of the Slick window, I can't do that because Slick will autodock it there.

During drag Slick should force float the toolbar if you hold CTRL key while dragging - just like it does for tool windows.

After playing with icon sizes I found my toolbar didn't respond properly.

Turns out that one of the buttons I dragged onto it got this for the icon: bbcalendar.ico@3d32
It specified the icon size.

I didn't request that it do this, and none of the others had this problem.


When I removed the "@3d32", the icon changed to the correct size - though the toolbar height didn't adjust to this new smaller size.

Why do the icons for ToolButtons and Tabs get to have independent settings for size, but must have the same Style setting?


Also Tab icons have an "Extra small" size that ToolBar icons do not: Shouldn't the same set of sizes be available?
