    Hello from Paris 🙂

    First, I would like to congratulate the developper(s?) for this excellent piece of software. But as I’m a TextPad switcher, there are some functionalities that I miss, and require me to switch back and forth between EmEditor and TextPad, while I’d prefer to use EmEditor alone.

    Since I’m a new user, some functionalities may be there, but I do not find them: if that is the case, could you be kind enough to explain to me how to proceed? Now here we go:

    * append to the clipboard
    I am used to do Shift-Control-C or Shift-Control-X to copy/cut and append to the clipboard. I did not find any clipboard append, right?

    * find: mark all lines / copy/cut all marked lines
    I often use these features in TextPad, but did not find them.

    * configure “tag jump”
    a custom regular expression that would return the file path, line number and possibly column number from the output bar, so that double-clicking on an error message would go to the source line. This would allow for instance to match Ruby error messages:
    intervals.rb:8: undefined local variable or method `i_do_no_exist’ for main:Object (NameError)

    That’s all for the moment. Again, bravo for the editor !

    * append to the clipboard

    This can be done by a macro:


    str = clipboardData.getData("Text");
    clipboardData.setData("Text", str + document.selection.Text);

    and you can assign the macro to a keyboard shortcut.

    * find: mark all lines / copy/cut all marked lines

    You will need to explain me exactly what you want to do, but it should be done by writing a macro.

    * configure “tag jump”

    Version 7.5 alpha has this feature.

    Thanks for the answers. 🙂
    (Or should I say “arigato gozaimasu”?)

    PS : find: mark all lines / copy/cut all marked lines
    mark all lines: bookmarks all lines where the find expression matches
    copy/cut all marked lines: puts all bookmarked lines in the clipboard
    You’re right, macros can do that: I lived too long without them…
