  1. Hunspell dictionaries

    jEdit has a great feature in being able to re-load a file using a different format. Currently, after I do some editing I have to close the file, then open it in OpenOffice to do spell checking. When complete, I am back in jEdit finishing the conversion of the text, followed by translation. This last processing goes so much better after spell checking, but without resorting to programming, I can't see how to do it in jEduit.

      • Let us give an alias-name for a favorite.

        It is helpfull to have an "alias" for a favorite. If you use sftp and ssh-tunneling you use favorites like "localhost:port" (e.g. localhost:1000). Now its helpfull if you can rename this favorite with an alias name (e.g. hostname).

        • HTML and CSS Cross-Browser Check

          I recently found jEdit and am using it on virtually every platform and OS that runs Java... down to a Nokia N8xxx Maemo-based tablet. YOU DIGITIALLY ROCK THE HOUSE!

          Please be gentle on me as this *suggestion* may already have been covered and/or implemented.

          #1. When developing in HTML/HTML5 and CSS/CSS3, it would be quite cool to have a plugin that could say "Possible compatibility issues with Browsers : Browser A, Version X; Browser B, Version Z"

          #2. A quick-launch key to use *your browser of choice* to see your code in. Not something that pops up the default system…

          • Add an option to mode-specific settings to control prompt-on-reload behavior

            For example, I like to keep the map file from a build open so I can track memory usage of the program, but the file is recreated every time I rebuild. I can turn off notification, but it forgets if I switch sessions.

            It would be nice if I could associate .map with no-prompt-on-reload.

            • Add a jump back in CtagsInterface

              In an older version I had locally modified the plugin CtagsInterface to have a "Jump back" option. When you selected "Jump to tag" I would add the current place to a buffer before jumping to the tag. I limited the size of the buffer to 20 and once the buffer was full a new entry would cause the oldest one to drop out of the buffer. This would allow me to easily move forward and back through the code.

              • Inbuilt java 1.7 support for mac osx package

                Dear Sir,

                Mac has discontinued Java SE 1.7, hence it is difficult to use Jedit's some plugin. It would be great, instead of relying on Mac OS Java, the require java can be packaged into Jedit package. That would be great.

                Thanks,
                Ramanuj

                • Disappears names of files opened from a remote server from the list of open files (buffer list) after restart JEdit

                  If the list of open files (buffer list) contains files opened from a remote server, then after restart jEdit these names disappears from this list.

                  Please advise how to fix it or how to restore the connection to the remote server after restart jEdit so, that the names kept in the list.

                    • New Website

                      The jEdit could use some modernization. Images are no longer a crime ;-) Take a look at http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/features/code_completion.html for example.
                      I'm missing a page to present the new features of (upcoming) releases. Change logs are not that sexy and for most readers a waste of time.
                      The new design should centralize the download link (preferably a big button).
                      The plugin descriptions could be a bit beautified and need some pictures.

                        • Allow to configure the JRE to be used for running jEdit on MAC dmg installation

                          Oracle has published JDK7 for OSX Lion.
                          Now I want my jEdit installation ro run on that.
                          But there is no configuration at all to choose which JRE should be used.

                          I used the dmg installer of jEdit and installed it at a time where JDK7 was not out yet. whatever i do now - i cannot change the ire for jEdit!

                            Jedit tweets in the left column of the main page is a useless spam. Most of the comments are in languages I don't understand or even cannot read the letters. G+ photos could be nice, but better somewhere in the bottom of the page.

                            • Global Plugin

                              I don't like that in new versions global plugin is not suported anymore
                              For me this is the most used plugin from jedit
                              For this reason I can't update to last version
                              You should provide at least other plugin that provide the same features
                              Regards

                                  When I throw my mouse pointer to the far right of the screen, I should be able to move the scroll bar as soon as I click down instead of having to move it back to the left a couple of pixels. Firefox is a good example of implementing the infinite edge.

                                    • mejoras en edicion jedit

                                      Hello. We use jedit as text editor, it is great, but we found an issue for us; i would like to know if there is an option to disable the automatic space in the new line when enter is typed.

                                      Thank you.

                                      • Allow viewing markers for all open files.

                                        The markers view could be a tree view, showing markers for all open buffers.

                                        • wrap lines by window size

                                          instead of wrap lines by the preset line length, wrap lines by the window size, that's the behavior on most modern text editors or IDEs. Also, it would be great to add a button for wrapping in the toolbar
