Two things that I would like to see with slickedit 2008
« on: March 18, 2008, 04:48:48 am »
Hello,

I have downloaded and tested slickedit demo version. I am not a current slickedit user. But i am planning to buy it with 2008 version.

There are two things i would be glad to see with 2008 slickedit.

1 - ) LISP support.
I downloaded the Slick-C file from the web page some how it felt abandoned.

2 - ) Ability to highlight the variables/functions that i hover my mouse over.
Current ctrl+/  ctrl+. and ctrl+, is ok but i think it would be much more easier to navigate the code by seeing some variables highlighted.

Thanks a lot.

...and the genie responds:
1) Sorry, your wish is not granted. Your lamp is not working. You need a functional lamp.
2) Your wish is granted...kind of. We chose to do this using the cursor rather than the mouse. Using the mouse curosr would conflict with our "Show info for symbol under mouse" feature, and it would not be accessible to those who eschew the mouse.

Now, let's see who can make the best joke about the phrase, "eschew the mouse'.

I'll go first:

"Eschew the mouse? No way, then I'd have to esswallow the mouse."

eschew the mouse?  Next, you'll want to esochk the mouse, followed closely by a whole eschewte of clothes.  I don't know any mouse that wants to wear clothes.  Sheewch!
