No you aren't missing anything, I'm just not being clear and didn't post details about what the event handler was doing. Also, I hadn't realized that there was a Save As trigger, and only wrote a Save postfix handler - that must be new since 3.97c The event handler is FTPing the file that was just s...

File_Save_Postfix Trigger

Hi, Jussi Just noticed today that it appears that the file save trigger (I'm using postfix, didn't check the prefix) does NOT file on a Save As - is that by design? My scenario is to create an editted copy of a file via Save As. Since I usually do the Save As, then edit and Save, this is not a huge ...

That would work perfectly!

To me, this is one of the key things that sets Zeus apart from some of the other editors I've used - your willingness to consider suggestions and the responsiveness with which they get implemented are excellent!

COBOL Tags

Hi, Jussi Some years ago, you sent me the source code for the COBOL tag analysis module used with ctags, which I modified a bit and sent back to you. I'm back to looking at some legacy COBOL code, and it looks like you have developed this a bit farther. Also, there are a few things I'd like to exper...

New Macro Tag Request

Would it be possible to add a new macro tag to reflect the language (document type) of the current file? This isn't that hard to detect from the file extension, I realize, but since Zeus has already done that classification, it might make language-dependent macros a little bit more robust, with less...

FileOpenInLine

I'm trying to get open in line to work for me in a COBOL program, looking at COPY books. When I was doing PC-based COBOL, it was common for the line to read COPY "filename.CPY", which Zeus could parse to a file name easily. On the AS400 system I'm working on now, it's more common for the line to rea...

SmartPaste

Would it be possible to make smart pasting a document type option, like smart indenting is? Like some others, I've noticed the effect of the smart paste without realizing it was a separate function, then been confused by why smart indent didn't turn it off. Searching the forums did provide the answe...

Find in Files Options

Is there a convenient way to do the equivalent of Find in Files, but restrict the scope to selected files, the files in a project, the files in a group of projects, the files in a workspace, etc? By convenient, I mean without having to look up and type the names of all the files. I know that would b...

Templates and Macros

I'm trying to write a template that expands beginning in column 1 rather than at the cursor position. I'm using the $ME macro tag, invoking a macro to do the output. It appears that anything the macro does in the way of output is placed at the cursor position, regardless of any cursor moving the mac...

That's what I thought. I was looking for a way to automate that process somehow, since this is a fairly dynamic set of functions, with changes weekly or so. If there isn't any other way, I'll see what I can accomplish with AutoHotKey. Thanks.

I have neither that macro nor that program, but you sent me in the right direction anyway. I had been focused on using the built-in diff, and hadn't even considered using an external diff function. I hooked up WinMerge and it works great - also a little friendlier than the built-in.

No, it works fine until I regenerate the CHM file, then it behaves erratically. I did not cycle Zeus when I regererated - maybe that would do the trick. I think the key may be the "load at add time" functionality. If you load index data when the file is added, what happens if the file changes? Bill

Quick Help functions

Jussi, I've recently been working on a project generating API style documentation for a set of COBOL programs. I've got this done, and can generate a CHM file that works as a quick help file for the set. So far so good. My observation is that when I regenerate the CHM file, Zeus can no longer refere...
