  1. Save on exit option / generic save on new document in case of system failure

    If my computer shuts down I need all my documents saved before jedit is terminated.

      • base 64 encode and decode functions

        Have to switch often to Ultraedit to get the job done. Would be a very nice enhancement to JEdit.

          • Make a template wizard

            A template wizard would be a wonderful idea for Ren'Py because it seems like all Ren'Py is repetitive. So for example, instead of typing or copying and pasting lines of code or text, you can press a couple of letters/symbols and press ENTER or the SPACE bar and the text or code assigned to those letters will appear. (e.g. for 'define (letter/word) = Character (information)' Template would be 'define + ENTER/SPACE').

            • Keyboard shortcuts' support of other languages, e.g. Russian

              JEdit does not support keyboard shortcut like Ctrl+C while using Russian language. When I type comments or strings in Russian I have to switch the keyboard layout every time I want to copy/paste something and this is not convenient.

              • auto save of unsaved files!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                I'm freaking dying here. I set up autosave and just assumed that it was saving "unsaved1.txt" or something. Now I've lost an embarrassing amount of work. You guys are doing a great job and jedit is the most fantastic editor out there.

                • make "easy upgrade"

                  where the user just clicks a button and jedit archives its current version (in case you need "easy downgrade") then downloads the current version files and upgrades itsself. This would be especially nice on linux, but handy for windows users as well.

                  • Search fails. Very often search fails to find text in a page. It seems to occur at random.

                    This is just a bug that has been there for at least a year.

                        • working on two computer screens with jedit. view on second screen is not connected to buttons

                          a view on a 2nd computer screen is not managed by the buttons on the main window of jedit. have to push the view into the 1rst computer screen to make it work. jedit should work if one uses more computer screens.

                          • global options for wrap should change current views or make file options

                            Global options do not change current options. word wrap does not stay with the file. Need to change wrap options (buffer options) every time the file is open again. make options for files.

                              • very fast search

                                A very very fine editor, but to speed up programming for at laest 50 %, you can shorten the search time, Programming is A LOT OF SEARCHING IN YOUR FILE, if i select a word and I can see in the sidebar marks on all the places where that word is used, I can imidiately shift my file to that point for examination. It is a hughe gain of time, you can 't without it. I have used it a lot in the B4A editor that is only made for fast editing for B4A users.
