Software News   Software News : New software releases by OnyxSoft
   posted by Deniil715 on 2-Dec-2012 19:17:37 (648 reads)
OnyxSoft releases Annotate v3.0.1 with some fixes and a few new features.

Annotate v3.0.1 - (OS3,OS4,MOS,AROS) A very comprehensive text editor with a lot of functions such as syntax hignlighting.



- Tool commands now get a console output window if they output anything.

- Made the "Quit with changes" requester much better and allows to save.

- Spell corrected guide by Tom Breeden. Thank you!

- Fixed string escaping in the XML prefs such that any characters in paths etc can be saved without causing XML parse errors.

- Fixed the Tools edit page which was completely screwed on the MUI versions.

- Added Alt as qualifier to temporarily switch selection mode between normal and rectangular mode.

- Improved rectangular selection such that the width is not dependent on the length of the last line the mouse is over.

- Updated the behaviour of upper/lower case when there is no selection. Now it changes the character under the cursor and advances by char ahead.

- Fixed the $ VER : string which made the version appeared empty in some versions.

- Optimized the text redrawing when selecting text and in other situations.

- Fixed crash when iconifying and reopening.

NOTE: The AROS and MorphOS executables are not the absolute latest, but the latest source is available and should compile out of the box.

If you see a bug or have a suggestion, please don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail!

Please report any bugs.
I know of one (unfixable) bug: It won't switch mode back when you release Alt until you move the mouse.

Thanks for the update.

One question though. Is it possible for Annotate to start using C/C++ syntax highlighting? It always starts for plain text, and I always have to change the syntax everytime, despite saving prefs, so I'm forced to save a small file and open this always to have C/C++ syntax from the start.

That's currently not possible.
But just one question? How often do you start writing C/C++ from scratch?!? I mean, in 99.9% of the cases one would open an existing file, which should automatically load the correct syntax.

Otherwise you can also test the "Try syntax in this editor" menu option. It should analyse the text and try to find a correct syntax definition if there's enough C/C++ tokens. That would save you going into the config and select the syntax.

@ Deniil715

I see, thanks for the answer. Don't worry not big deal, sometimes I just play around and came up with this one. I had the impression that if you save your prefs to a specific syntax highlighting, it will be loaded after a fresh restart of the program.

Yeah, it's a bit confusing that this particular thing isn't saved but only applied for the currently open editor (the one from which you opened the config). What you could do is to save a project with an empty file and C/C++ syntax. That should work I suppose, but may be more awkward....
