At first I thought about trying to emulate the Kedit line scope concept in full, but this change is just too difficult to implement as it touches too many areas of the Zeus code. Not surprising. So the safest, simplest change is to just create a new document. Well, the next question then is how to ...

Re: New File Filtering Feature

Based on the Kedit discussion found here: http://www.zeusedit.com/zforum/viewtopic.php?t=6596 As soon as the first Add Filter is applied a new document will be created and displayed in Zeus just like any other text file. What do we think? When you say "a new document will be created", does this mea...

The reason it looks like SED to me is because the ALL is effectively an IF statement and the one of the reasons SED was created was to add this sort of IF functionality to regular expression search and replace. In psuedo code this feature feels a lot like this to me: IF (line matches this condition...

I have not seen a folding editor that can do this and I'm not really sure it is folding as such. That's correct. It's known as "selective line editing". Of course, lines that are not selected are not displayed, so usually when I raise the issue, most people say "oh, yes, editor X has that; it's cal...

But one think to remember is Zeus can be scripted in quite a few different languages. Yes, that's a big plus. I'm used to REXX, but in the past I've used MultiEdit (which used a C language syntax macro language), Brief and Emacs (which used Lisp), and now UltraEdit (which uses Javascript). I've als...

I had not thought about this :oops: You are correct. This will be an issue :( :shock: But what should work is entering the Zeus license key just once from inside the version of Zeus running from the USB. This will write the license details to the user section of the registry for that machine, so th...

No. The directories are softcoded and follow the Microsoft User Data model that you refer to. Good. All of the machines I work with follow that model. But it will not run correctly if the USB is running from a Windows 7 machine, the reason being Windows 7 expects the user data to be located in the ...

Zeus is not truely portable because it will write to and read from the local user section of the machines registry. Okay, I'm not too worried about that; what I'm thinking of more is whether or not the editor configuration is portable. By that I mean that when I customize the editor with my preferr...

Questions about portability from a Kedit user

Hi; My apologies if I'm breaking new user protocol by starting a new topic, but I searched and found no answer to this, and I didn't find any existing topic where this was appropriate. I have been a happy Kedit user for 25+ years. Sadly, with the authors' retirements, development has stopped. While ...
