So basically, the scenario is something like this.

1) create a new file
2) paste text
3) run a macro that processes the contents of the file and prints output to the output bar that refers back to lines in the unsaved file buffer

Right now, there is no way to make the references to the lines in the unsaved buffer work because a file name is required. Since the the buffer is not saved, it has no file name.

It would be nice to have a way to have EmEditor jump to the referenced line in whatever file/buffer is currently displayed rather than a specific file.

Hope that makes sense. I actually use this functionality a lot to do quick processing on pasted text from other apps but I don’t want to have to save to a file every time I do it.
