    Hi there,

    I’ve recently started to use EmEditor and quite happy so far with it.
    Its pretty cool that it can load very large files very quickly.
    I have some suggestions here and was wondering if the following enhancements could be considered in the future.

    1) Allow bookmarks to be customized. .
    Users can set bookmark colors+icons and annotate each bookmark with some description or comments.
    The bookmarks can then be probably saved into a separate file residing together with the original.
    When the mouse hovers over the bookmarks, we can then see the description in the tool tip.

    2) Allow copying of all the lines being bookmarked. .
    This can probably open in a new tab like the find in files with the hyperlinks back to the original document.

    3) Additional Find dialog feature
    Allow Find dialog to search for all occurrence and open the list in a new tab like the find in files with the hyperlinks back to the original document.

    4) new macro object for Find in Files.
    Allow access to the file in files method in macros.

    5) Support for VB like syntax?
    Begin-end statements collapsing and stuff.

    Sorry if any of these is already in EmEditor.
    Thanks and keep up the good work! 😀

    This feature is definitely not for the EmEditor core, and it has to be done by a plug-in. I might have to add new APIs to make this happen. Let me see if I can do that…

    2) Allow copying of all the lines being bookmarked. .

    You can write a macro to copy all lines with bookmarks.

    3) Additional Find dialog feature
    Allow Find dialog to search for all occurrence and open the list in a new tab like the find in files with the hyperlinks back to the original document.

    You can use the Search plug-in (you can find it within the default install).

    4) new macro object for Find in Files.
    Allow access to the file in files method in macros.

    Use editor.FindInFiles method.

    5) Support for VB like syntax?
    Begin-end statements collapsing and stuff.

    You can customize the Outline plug-in for your situation.

    You are welcome!

    Hi Yutaka,

    Thanks a lot for the fast reply and the tips.

    Didn’t know that there’s a “editor.FindInFiles” method because
    when I recorded a macro, i didn’t got that method in the script.

    Thanks again!
