Title: How do I get the repeat key "." to work
Post by: TarDruggan on November 02, 2012, 08:43:39 pm
I've searched and read the forums so if this is somewhere else if you just point out where.
I use the repeat key a lot and it does not seem to work in slickEdit Core. Does anyone know how to configure this to work?
In the same vein but not as important as I can work around it more is that when I go to delete 3 line I usually just issue the command "3dd".
That is also not working.

Are you using SlickEdit Core 3.7.1?  On Windows 64bit?

The 3dd command should definitely be working...but the . command is a known issue in our Eclipse plugin.  I'll bump the bug report with your information and hopefully we can get it fixed for the next release.  If I can get a hotfix for you in the mean time I will.

As for the reason why 3dd and similar commands wouldn't be working...I'm not really sure ???.  As a test we can try starting Eclipse with a default SlickEdit configuration in order to see if it is something that has gone haywire with your particular config.  To do this, start Eclipse passing the -vsconfig option to the executable, like so:

Code: [Select]
..\eclipse.exe -vsconfig C:\my\new\config

This will create a brand new default configuration at C:\my\new\config.  Let me know if that clears up the problem, and then we can go from there.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit (I've provided my SlickEdit Core "about" info below). Looking forward to a hotfix for repeat when it is ready.

Post by: Ryan on November 02, 2012, 09:35:13 pm assuming you can still reproduce the problem with your old config in the old location, you can zip it up and upload it at  Let me know the name of the zip file and I'll see if I can reproduce the problem and see why it occurred with your config.

To export your config to a zip file, go to Window > SlickEdit Preferences > Export/Import Preferences and select Export All Preferences.  Make sure you do this with the config where you are seeing the problem :).
