I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Text search in the current help page

    jEdit help already have a search engine, I know,but what I mean, is searching in the current help page. I miss a way to search for a word in the current page, just like you can do with any HTML viewer.

          • Folding lines by filter

            Implement folding (hiding/showing) of lines by filter result.
            For example, if I search for the word "nugget" in a text, I would have the
            option to either show only the lines with "nugget", to show only the lines
            NOT containing "nugget", or both.

            The editor of OS/390 (ISPF) had a similar feature.

            • Wrap lines without whitespace

              Wrapping long lines that don't contain whitespace characters is very useful and i'm surprised it's not supported. At least users should be able to define the characters which are used to break the wrapped lines

              • allow you to press shift and backspace at the same time, and still let it go back.

                When you press SHIFT and BACKSPACE in jEdit it doesn't do anything. It is very annoying at times when I'm coding and need to have caps in my scripts and forget to let go of Back.

                  • Sessions jEdit 5 and I/O error: jEdit hangs completely

                    Starting with jEdit 5 when loading a Session with SessionManager there are I/O error messages poping up when files from the sessions filelist are unknown or unloadable. These IOerrors have massiv conflicts with the sftp/ftp-dialogs and the password-dialog for keys.
                    jEdit becomes hangs: The IOerror has no focus and the password-dialog neither. jEdit is no unusable: None of the two boxes has a focus to close any of the open dialogboxes.

                    In the SessionManager uncheckiung the
                    "Close all files before switching" helps around this error.

                    Or of course editing the sessions XMLfile to erase
                    the items causing the IOerrormessages will…

                    • 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').

                        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.

                            The relevance of a tip may not present itself until tomorrow or the next day. A "back" button would allow users to go back and implement a tip that was only read summarily.
