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".
(thinking…)

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. 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.

    • actions and toolbar icons should be a unit

      If you remove an icon from the toolbar and want to add it later, you have to reassign the corresponding icon. This doesn't make sense and no other (known) tool handles it like this.

      • How do you zoom?

        The fonts are too small. Why can I not zoom in/out like you can in a browser? Ability to zoom makes it much easier on the eyes.

            • Turning on or off selection mode

              You should be able to use a shortcut to turn on or off selection mode. When in selection mode all movements select text and move the caret at the same time. This way a single shortcut can be used to turn on selection mode without having to hold down another key ( like Shift ) in order to select text in various ways. This makes it much easier to combine selection with caret movement in the buffer without having to remember a separate set of shortcuts for each movement.

              • You test your installs further

                I have used jEdit for years, but the last couple versions have given me fits trying to get it installed. Suggestions? I have tried both the '.dmg' and the jar installs.

                • Search history in the search dialog

                  In the main search toolbar there is a history of previously searched terms; but not in the search dialog window.
                  The search should have the same list readily and easily available.

                      Can you tell me the current md5sum on jedit5.1.0install.exe?

                        • BeanShell to JavaScript?

                          I stated that the project BeanShell (http://www.beanshell.org/) is not more being updated for a long time. Its not good to start thinking in the future of the scripting language being adopted?

                          We already have "official" support from rhino developers, and possibly too, from Nashorn.

                          Thank you for this simple, but great tool!

                          • buffer tabs by default

                            Tabs for open files are pretty much standard in all editors these days. I'd suggest to make it the default in jEdit, too. But there should be a little optimization: if there are more tabs than fit in a single row, then there should be a drop down menu for the rest.

                              • What coud perhaps be imporved in NetRexxJE 0.09 plugin

                                Concerning my beginner's yesterday's suggestions, I have been going through the source and found that in NrxParser.nrx, line 46, it's said 'super("nrxParser") -- jEdit shall know this parser as "nrxParser"'. Now, if one looks at "Parsers" under Utilities->Global Options->Sidekick, what one finds is not "nrxParser" but "netrexx". This reference to "netrexx" cannot have been installed by (my presently :(( "running") v. 0.08 because that version did not delegate parsing to Sidekick. I wonder whether ther might happen that the Sidekick plugin has a docking called for "netrexx" (not "nrxParser") for anybody to record with that name a NetRexx plugin parser…

                                  Most other editors do this.

                                      • Retain last save location for immediate reuse

                                        When you have a bunch of new buffers and you want to start saving the files (and happen also to close each as you save it), you have to navigate the entire directory structure for each file. If you could just use "previous" (which, for new saves, is empty) or "last saved location" as a temporary favorite or something, that'd make it WAY convenient.

                                        • Bean Shells?

                                          I love the program, but it's so hard to use. Now, after a year, 4 books, and 3 short stories, all programmed, but not uploaded, it's quit on me. It says "Bean Shell Error," but I don't know what that is, and it won't open. I tried to load a new java, I tried to load JEdit 5.00, but it still says "Bean Shell Error," and refuses to open. It's swallowed all that stuff, and I'll never see it again.
