  1. Big file edit

    It is always a pity that vi on a linux machine can open and manipulate big files (1.3 GB or bigger) without any problems. This should one of the main goals of a text editor to load big files as well and work with them. Please can you add a mechanism to just load the visible part of the file and not the hole file ? Because the hole file will never fit into the heap memory and therefore the editor is useless for big files

      • Print 'Selection'

        Add an option in the print dialog to print a selection of lines from the current buffer. If a section is already highlighted, that option could be enabled automatically.

        • Add JDiff integration to Git Plugin.

          It would be nice if someone would integrate the JDiff plugin with the git plugin so you could easily jump through differences between revisions in a way similar to how git-cola or qgit does.

            • Make completion dialogs use Line up/down shortcuts

              It would be really useful to be able to use my Line up/Line down shortcuts to choose a selection in the completion popups. I use a vi-esque keybinding scheme, so taking my fingers off the home row when typing feels awkward.

              Actually, to extend the request, it would be nice to be able to use text area navigation shortcuts (prev/next char, line up/down, select, etc.) in QuickNotepad and the Find dialog.

              Looking at CompletionPopup (I don't know how extensively it's used), it
              seems possible that instead of switching on keyCodes:

              switch(e.getKeyCode())
              {
              case KeyEvent.VK_UP:
              moveRelative(-1);
              e.consume();
              break;
              case KeyEvent.VK_DOWN:
              moveRelative(1); …

                  • Bring back Alt+Key shortcuts in jEdit 5.1

                    I've just tried jEdit 5.1pre1 daily-built and my Alt shortcut keys don't work any more. There's no setings to change it back to the old style.
                    I suggest having a preference to disable the 'Alt menu keys' (those underlines keys) so that I can use my own Alt+keys as shorcuts.
                    I'm reinstalling 5.0

                          • Improve the syntax highlighting system.

                            I tried to write an edit mode for Slim (http://slim-lang.com), but the existing tools were far from capable. For example, I don't think there's any way to identify a block of indented code.

                            • line continuation handling for better mode description

                              for tcl-like languages jedit is seriously missing a line continuation character.
                              E.g. lines like
                              lsort -integer -index 1 \
                              {{First 24} {Second 18}}
                              set a "[lsearch -all -inline \
                              -not $list]"
                              cannot be captured correctly from highlighting point of view
                              So I would suggest to add a rule property tag LineContinuationChar. if this character appears as the last none-white space char on a line, the following line is appended to the current line. And, all lines joined together with a LineContinuationChar are infact handled as a single line in all mode tags like e.g. EOL_SPAN...

                                        • FTP master password + faster FTP on Windows

                                          Please provide a safe way to store FTP passwords in jEdit! (See the trojan virus that attacked Total Commander earlier)
                                          A masterpassword that encrypt passwords is a good idea. (Total Commander choosed that.)

                                          FTP on Windows very-very-very slow especially saving files. I inspected it with Wireshark. Jedit saves files to FTP one byte by one byte. Other FTP programs saves files in a ~1450 Byte blocks. 10-50 times faster. Sometimes I need to use FTP mapping programs, like Webdrive or Netdrive.

                                          Another good ide if we can edit while saving. Sometimes I found mistakes while saving the file but can't…
