Oh, and on double-clicking text there is no feature that highlights matches, right?March 1, 2019 at 11:09 am in reply to: Search Functionality Improvement Suggestion: Allow Multiple Findings Highlighted #25444
No way to erase highlight on mouse leaving found text. This is a deficiency in the need to use the keyboard or mouse to erase the highlights. And no option to clear the previous search on the next round automatically.
Please add.March 1, 2019 at 11:02 am in reply to: Search Functionality Improvement Suggestion: Allow Multiple Findings Highlighted #25443
Awesome, thank you Patrick!November 9, 2015 at 7:02 pm in reply to: Block of Text Search and Replace Functionality Missing #20472
Try yourself please to replace
INSERT INTO public.knownpoi(
in many places at once.
I understood with the macro I need to edit it each time
and also getting
This feature (recording mouse activities and keyboard input to other applications) might not work under some versions of Windows and security settings. This feature might not be supported in future versions of EmEditor.

Hmm, how do I use the shortcut. I tried Alt-number of the file and opened a few other files I did not expect it to?
And if I expand the More menu item I get a 0 file again.January 16, 2014 at 12:05 pm in reply to: Feature / Enhancement Request – Ability to show all the special characters #17873
Thank you for posting this link Andreas, I did not find it before posting and as I can see I am not along.
Hopefully with the so frequent releases we can get a canned feature instead soon.February 22, 2013 at 7:36 pm in reply to: A text with periods gets replaced with spaces when escape sequence option used #10853
1) Copy-paste the text:
into a new text file.
2) Have the search-replace dialog set to use the option “Use Escape Sequence” on.
3) Attempt to replace the text with: testest1
Expected result: testest1
The actual result: testest1
Ahh it WAS a sticky situation!
I did replace the keyboard keys to new ones in both configs to http://i.imgur.com/OX0kcVJ.png, didn’t help.
I then reset all, and it did remove all my keyboard shortcuts I put in place, but Shift-S was still alive and working, the refresh does not help either.
But the moment of rejoice has come after I exited and restarted the editor, now the old keyboard key assignment has finally gone.
Thank you Yutaka for the attempt to recover, unfortunately the refresh does not help.
On the bright side, I now know why this option is there :-).
Now, since me, silly, assigned Shift-S to the swap lines, and I cannot un-do this assignment I am stuck being unable to type capital Ss :-(
I am at despair, please tell me there is one more trick before the complete removal . :-o
Silly on my side to assign Shift-S, true, but it is not to deceive me. It is just a test that ended badly :-( .
Yet, the key combination must not be important John.
So no mistake on my side, the keyboard command assigned must adhere to the configuration setting.
Therefore this is a bug.
Oh yeah Tommy,
Agree with you.
I think I asked about this a long time ago, anyways, this would be a very welcome addition.
no, the macro even does not run on highlighted lines.
This is an excellent idea and the Macros, too; thank you for supplying them!
Besides, are you the same Stefan who is the moderator on the HippoEdit forum?
I would disagree with you on this comment Meir,
Such functionality exists in many editors EE has to compete against.
For example Sublime Text can swap lines with Ctrl-Shift-ArrowUp.
And it is one of its most used features: http://bit.ly/VYn8xW
Does it add slowness? I doubt that. Yet, people who shell $50 for an editor probably are on a 2-3 year hardware refresh cycle. For the rest, slowness is in each app.
On the contrary, it adds productivity.
Dragging is not going to do that in one hit, and for example not possible if you want to position a line at the top.
I think most EE users work on platforms as say Unix and use Windows as merely a window into their OS editing files quickly on the Win side. For them using keyboard is more natural and unintuitive than the mouse and they pick new commands naturally.January 21, 2013 at 11:05 pm in reply to: Please Make It Possible to Highlight the Matching Parenthesis with a Custom Color #10781
Oh good, thank you Meir!
Oh, OK, I am on the No Wrap setting and thus this does not apply, was not immediately apparent.
Thank You! … But I would love to have it enabled to be at par with the “Remove New Lines” please.
This then makes the functionality toggle and work in conjunction with the No Wrap mode.
PS: A better name for “Remove New Lines” IMHO would be “Remove New Line Endings“/”Insert New Line Endings“.January 15, 2013 at 4:47 pm in reply to: Why Comment/Uncomment Functionality Becomes Enabled Only When Line(s) Selected? #10770
My both thumbs are up for the proposed!
By the way your rephrase Meir: “Toggle” is the word and the way to go.January 15, 2013 at 3:42 pm in reply to: Why Comment/Uncomment Functionality Becomes Enabled Only When Line(s) Selected? #10768
Yes, the macro is designed to work on a single line of unselected text.
This is because in the rest of the situations we have the right-click -> Convert Selection > Comment/Uncomment functionality or you can pull these two buttons onto the toolbar.
Agin, the latter just does not work for a single un-highlighted line of code – hence the macro.
I must add, this creates some uncomfort for me – split, non-unified functionality :hammer: .
Hope Yutaka is listening: I suggest a change to allow commenting code regardless of whether a line is highlighted/selected.January 14, 2013 at 2:33 pm in reply to: Why Comment/Uncomment Functionality Becomes Enabled Only When Line(s) Selected? #10766
It highlights and comments out a line of code (even if it was commented out already). You need to just position the cursor within the line.
While the cursor is still on the same (just commented) line it un-comments it.January 14, 2013 at 1:59 am in reply to: Why Comment/Uncomment Functionality Becomes Enabled Only When Line(s) Selected? #10763
Not quite there, but the following variation is almost what I need, how to un-select a line?
if( document.selection.IsEmpty )
// highlight select and comment
January 11, 2013 at 6:27 pm in reply to: Why Comment/Uncomment Functionality Becomes Enabled Only When Line(s) Selected? #10754
Probably you meant it will comment in either case. At least the code does this. And I think it would be nice to enhance the functionality so if the comment is already there – uncomment – thus toggling the comments on/off.January 11, 2013 at 3:27 pm in reply to: Why Comment/Uncomment Functionality Becomes Enabled Only When Line(s) Selected? #10751
I see, but in my case I placed the Comment-Uncomment pair onto the toolbar.
Therefore IMHO, this limitation should not be in this case.
PS: This useful command (I use very often) is buried too deep in the menus, I suggest to elevate it.
Yeah, that made the trick, thanks.
Also thinking it probably be should off by default.
Another related nuance, looks like the Markers work (position the cursor at a marker) only if I am at the beginning of a document. To me, this is a deficiency.
Awesome, this is the one I need (just named differently, from my old BASIC days :lol: ).
