    Oh, and on double-clicking text there is no feature that highlights matches, right?

    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.

    Awesome, thank you Patrick!

    I understood with the macro I need to edit it each time
    and also getting
    [Window Title]
    EmEditor

    [Main Instruction]
    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.

    I am using EmEditor 14.2.1
    and get an error using the macro above:

    Error 'ShowDBSpaces' is undefined

    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.

    1) Copy-paste the text:
    test.test.test.com
    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.

    My +1

    Hi Steven,

    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.

    Oh good, thank you Meir!

    in reply to: Under What Conditions "Insert New Lines" Works? #10776
    ArthurZ
    Participant

    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“.

    My both thumbs are up for the proposed!

    By the way your rephrase Meir: “Toggle” is the word and the way to go.

    Hello Meir,

    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.

    ArthurZ
    Participant

    Hello Meir,

    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.

    ArthurZ
    Participant

    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

    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4154); editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4371);
    }
    else
    {
    // uncomment
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4372);
    }
    ArthurZ
    Participant

    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.

    ArthurZ
    Participant

    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.

    in reply to: Why deleting a marker removes the marker toolbar? #10750
    ArthurZ
    Participant

    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.

    Thank you,

    Awesome, this is the one I need (just named differently, from my old BASIC days :lol: ).
