    EmEditor Professional 7.00.3 RC 1 is available for download. This version fixes bugs including:

    – Snippets plug-in now supports multiple-line drag and drop.
    – Snippets plug-in now supports parameters. See below.
    – Fixed a bug that a huge file may not always save changes after editing.
    – Other bug fixes.

    http://www.emeditor.com/pub/emed7003rc1epx.msi (32-bit)
    (Note: this file is already deleted. Please download the latest released version from http://www.emeditor.com/modules/download2/)

    The portable version can be produced from the Import/Export wizard on the Tools menu after you use the installer. However, the portable version runs slower than one using the Registry.

    If you tried, please post any bug reports or any other feedback on this forum. Thank you!

    Snippets parameters:

    	{Path}
    	{Dir}
    	{Filename}
    	{Ext}
    	{CurLine}
    	{SelText}
    	{Date}
    	{Time}
    	{PickFullPath,title,filter}
    	{PickRelativePath,title,filter}
    	{PickColor}
    	{DefColor}
    

    The filter format should be “Text Files|*.txt|All Files|*.*||”

    Also, any parameters in this format {x} can be used, and a dialog box appears, where a user needs to enter values.

    For instace, the snippet text is:

    	// Title  : {Title}n// Author : {Name}n// Date   : {Date}n// Description : {Description}n
    

    Then you will be prompted to fill those values in:

    snippets-parameters

    After filling in the values, the inserted text would be:

    	// Title  : Sample Program
    	// Author : Yutaka Emura
    	// Date   : 2/29/2008
    	// Description : Fill in your description here

    Wow! I am impressed! You turned this around pretty quick. This is going to be a fantastic time saver!

    Some feedback:

    Drag and drop is great!
    Drop on top of existing should replace?
    It didn’t seem to fill in the parameters. Did I miss something?
    Limitation on text string size; can it be larger? 32 or 64K?
    Can we apply a name to the snippets rather than use the text?

    Sample of code I used to test parameters.

    You will need to enter parameter values as described in the above screenshots.

    Limitation on text string size; can it be larger? 32 or 64K?

    Then I should save the data to a text file rather than the Registry. I might work on that.

    Can we apply a name to the snippets rather than use the text?

    I am not sure what this means. Can you please clarify this?

    You will need to enter parameter values as described in the above screenshots.

    I never was prompted for any values. I even tried your example, and it did not work either. Should I have uninstalled before installing? It does say version 7.00.3.

    Sorry for not being clear. Instead of the Snippet showing “//Title : {Title}n” in the Snippet window, it would show “C# Program Header”, or “ASP Comment Block”, “HTML Table Block” etc. Basically be able to name the snippets.

    Does this help?

    Please make sure a backshash is not escaped by another backslash. For instance, if you want to enter {x}, you should not enter {x}. If you drag and drop the sample text above, the plug-in automatically escapes a backslash with another backslash.

    OK. Thanks for your clarification.

    Hmmmm….very strange…

    When I drag the following text in to the snippets window:


    {title}
    This is some text {Dude}

    It shows up in the snippets window as:


    {title}
    This is some text {Dude}

    BUT! If I type the text in the snippet window, it works!

    It seems as though the drag and drop is adding the additional backslash.

    I would like to add enhancements, but I will wait for Version 8 release.

    I cannot tell the future schedule at this time. Maybe months, maybe more than a year.

    Ew! I was really looking forward to the changes you were making to the snippets.

    Well, thanks for at least putting in drag and drop!
