Okay, now the General tab of the Editor Options isn't sticking so I can't easily compare my settings. That is an odd one. Okay, I cheated. I took a screen-snap of the two different Editor Options/General tabs. That does the trick! There. I *thought* I wasn't getting the right characters showing up b...

Upgrade

Java conversion seems okay. I think I'm liking the new SmartIndenting. There seems to be fewer problems now than I was having before. So far the only difference is that the behaviour is a little different when hitting ENTER after a brace inside a function (it just drops down a line and lines up with...

Update

It's tough finding a way to make configuration work well for the computer *AND* be human manageable as well. What you've done is pretty good. At least it's easy enough to keep configurations from upgrade to upgrade. Those TextPad Syntax Files look like they could do the trick! The CSS one looks pret...

Update

Good. So far I'm just working on .BAT files but it's looking good. I was able to move my white.col over so now things are *looking* right and that's a major thing for me. I can now finally see what I want to see at a glance. Is there anywhere that people are keeping lists of keywords? I added a coup...

Keymap

Okay, here's the first one ... How do I actually do a keymap import? Both [New] and [Import] seem to be disabled for some reason. Is there another checkbox I need somewhere? Even putting the .ZXP files into the zConfig directory doesn't seem to be making any difference. Hmmm. Aha! I'm not so stupid ...

Upgrade

Yup. I just need to get my order information (I sure hope I've got it at home!) so that I can prove I'm eligible for the $25 upgrade. Failing that I know RegNet has it *somewhere*. The only thing is that I can't remember what email I registered it under. Oops! :) That's basically what I'm doing for ...

Upgrading to 3.96n from 3.95z

I'm probably nuts but it's really time I got on the bandwagon and upgraded because it sounds like the New And Improved Zeus has a lot more of the features I'm looking for. My only issue is that I've spent so long with 3.94 and 3.95 that I've gone a little customization crazy. I've also got my work c...

3.96d

Hmm, it's starting to look like my system is kinda messed up WRT jumping back and forth between old and new versions and updates. I'm still getting some of those bugs but it could still have something to do with the key issues you described, even though I did rename that key. How about you let me kn...

FYI, here's the macro I came up with. The problem with LUA is that I have to relearn it every time I write a macro because I write so few of them. --*************************************************************************** -- -- File: AS_Enter.LUA -- -- Written by: Alan Stewart -- -- Creation date...

3.96b+patch

I've got 3.96b here for evaluation. I'm just gonna list a few things as I come across them. 1) Still no Alt-# bookmarks, and I've checked and the mappings seem correct. I really don't know what the issue is with this. It's gotta be maddening. 2) Turning the Line Wrap indicator off turns it off *PERM...

Ah. Well, I never managed to set any to notice that they weren't there. I'll have to take another look next time. It's really weird that I had that bookmark problem. I'll have to check and see what Alt-# and Alt-J were mapped to. Yeah, I'm an old curmudgeon so classic Brief is still the way I think....

Ah, well, if there's no going back then I am hooped. I guess I need a to write me a custom macro then. Bummer.

Well, since I'm using the brace modes or options, I don't think I'm the best person to be doing any bug hunting there.

I don't use Smart Bracing. As cool as it is, I don't need that because I've got a buncha macros I developed way too many years ago to get around not having it. I'm sure it's handy for people who *didn't* use Brief for 10 years before Zeus came along. As for the two-tab-stop thing. I did try it in a ...

Ah. I did not realize that it was a new Bookmark margin. That's an issue for me. I much prefer there to be no margin, or at least not much of one. What I've got now I guess is the few pixels of the collapsed code folding margin. No lone numbers, no nuttin'. I will try Zeus 3.96b at home and see what...

Well, this is a problem that's been in Zeus from the beginning. I'll have to try it with 3.96b, however, since I couldn't get the bookmarks to set, I wouldn't've been able to check this. I'll try to remember to catch it the next time I give 3.96 a spin.
