Dear David and Yutaka,
First of all, I love EE! It is fast, responsive, having all test-editing features I can think of and can handle very large files. In particular, its CSV/TSV/DSV handling is extremely useful in general and by me in particular. But I like it to stay that way. What I am concerned about is it being bloated and stop being fast and responsive.
And to answer Yutaka’s question, I would like to see the following features:
* A port to Linux, or at least support for it running over CrossOver
* Unifying the “Group”, the “Project” plug-in and the “Workspace” into one entity that I would call “Project”, making it the basic EE entity to be loaded. It would roughly be the equivalent of today’s “Solution” of the “Projects” plug-in.
To be sure, these are tall orders, but the first at least would open up a whole new market, IMHO larger than the Windows one, in particular for EE potential users, namely programmers.

Why is so much efforts invested in making EE a spreadsheet program? We have more than one free spreadsheet programs far more powerful… :-(July 29, 2017 at 10:47 am in reply to: Project PlugIn -> when will be available in more than one group? #22135
I am afraid that your answer raised more questions.What should we be careful about when saving a “solution”? Must we have a different one open in a different “group”?July 25, 2017 at 12:19 pm in reply to: Project PlugIn -> when will be available in more than one group? #22106
I support this request! I don’t have words strong enough to emphasize it. A group is a project and requires a totally different list of files.May 22, 2017 at 1:44 am in reply to: Installation of different versions of EmEditor on the same PC #21810
Yes indeed it is!
Thanks!May 18, 2017 at 9:17 am in reply to: Installation of different versions of EmEditor on the same PC #21804
I for one am not sure how that will work. Can you describe it a little bit more…?May 17, 2017 at 9:30 pm in reply to: Installation of different versions of EmEditor on the same PC #21799
Tabs coloring should distinguish between the current file and other files. Right now it is not that obvious which is the one with the focus.May 17, 2017 at 1:04 pm in reply to: Installation of different versions of EmEditor on the same PC #21792
Is that the first step of making the Projects plugin part of the core?
How about making EmEditor run over Wine/Crossover. Crossover claims to support Ver. 8.04. This is an antique.. I tried to install Ver.16.1.3 on top of CrossOver and it obviously failed. Can you devote enough resources for at least such an adaptation to Linux?
Any new thoughts about it?
Maybe integration of the most recent version of EmEditor with the most recent version of WINE? Pleeease!
Please don’t make me switch to another GUI editor, an inferior one, but one that runs on both Linux and Windows…
What about it? Approve? Denied? Considering IT. Please respond…
Wow, works! Also, once I run the macro, additions of the same kind turn into links without the requirement to run it again!
I still don’t know why and how it works, but it does!
I am afraid I would need more and more detailed instructions, in particular:
* How to chose the target of the link?
* How do I select the text shown in the link?
* On what to apply the Macro?

You are right, I never worked in Visual Studio. And we use ‘git’ to share access to project files and as our source control and repository.
And I never use all these additional functions you mentioned, so I can’t appreciate their impact.
Anyway, I am waiting for Yutaka to pick up the glove…

I can assure you that we are not in disagreement. But I am not sure why you think the project part is a heavy load. All it does is providing hyperlinks arranged in a two levels tree, “Solutions” and “Projects”. All one can do, other than click a tree branch hyperlink to open a file, is to add a file-branch to the tree and remove one. That’s it!
All I wish for is that when I open a workspace, it will open in a separate window (a “Group” by any other name…), including the Projects tree on the left. And the opposite – a “Save Workspace” operation should save the current state of the tree together will everything else. That’s it. “Open Project” will in fact be “Open Workspace” and similarly “Save Project” is “Save Workspace, and I don’t care which name is used…)

Works like a charm! Proves, as though a proff was required, how little I know this tool that I use for six-plus years… I repeat my “Tip-of-the-Day” suggestion.
I am always amazed how little I know EE. Please Tutaka, do consider having a “Tip-of-the-Day” pop up on invoking EE. The rip you just provided is truly useful for me. I use the markers a lot, including the automatic one.

I absolutely agree with you regarding how important is the lightning-speed of EE, including when opening files, no buts! And I always opposed features that cause EE to bloat. Speed of opening files is why I use and like so much the Projects plugin. You click on a filename in the project tree and it is instantly open, even ones which are a few megabytes large. And source code files are tens of kilobytes at most. So I never hesitate to close a file if it clutters my desktop.
But the limitations of the projects plugin (see in my original post) are really annoying. And I agree with you that the way Workspaces are now they are not that useful, and they are already part of the core! So are Groups, which are part of the core for years now.
So what I am suggesting is to rename “Groups” as “projects”, associate them, one-to-one, with a workspace and just add the Project tree of hyperlinks.
I defer to Yutaka to answer how will that impact speed, if at all. I wouldn’t be surprised if it would even speed up the beast… :-)
MeirJanuary 28, 2016 at 12:10 am in reply to: Regular Expressions example in Syntax highlighting file #20598
I am trying desperately to make the syntax highlighting of perl accept ‘$#’ as color = 4 and not as $ followed by comment. So far no success :-(
The relevant lines I tried:
#Keyword color=4,word=off,rightall=off,case=off,insidetag=off,regexp=on,rightall2=off /\$\#/
Please complete the RegExp…
Many, many thanks
Can you provide some screenshots of what is “Source Scrollbar”?
Sorry Yutaka for the ignorance,
But what does the split-boxes plugin do?
No, just writing Perl code…
For the little Hebrew I need to embed in my Perl scripts, I double check the strings and character order in MS Notepad. The problems are usually around all those “neutral” characters like ‘\’, ‘/’, numerals, etc.
In the first place, you need to at least decipher all these strange characters such as ‘א’, ‘ב’, etc. and be able to distinguish whether something shown on screen is displayed right or reversed. Would you be able to code a Japanese rendering engine (or for other language that you never learned)?
Second, although Microsoft provides a fairly decent BiDi (Bi-Directional) engine, one needs to learn and master it. Not a trivial matter.
Don’t hold your breath…
BTW, which of the RTL languages do you need?
