Version 13.50

Post by Rickard Johansson » 18 Nov 2018 14:07

Progress so far...

Version 13.50 (Nov 17, 2018)

Chrome Preview
Updated all files and components to version 70.0.3538.

GUI components
Updated several GUI components to the newest version.

Text clip and abbreviation synchronization
Added a synchronize sub-menu to the more menu on the text clips panel.

You can synchronize abbreviations and clips manually by selecting "Synchronize now...". This will sync files to the ones stored in a shared folder.
How the local and remote data is updated depends on your settings.

Options are available in two sections. Manual and auto sync settings.

Manual synchronize may be safer to use in a large organization. Especially if more than one user is able to save to the shared folder. You should also be careful with the "Allow delete" option, since it may remove clips you just added.
That doesn't mean you can't use auto sync. You just have to be careful of who is able to save to the shared folder and mind your settings (delete option).

If all users are allowed to save and everyone disable the settings to delete clips when syncing, nothing will be lost. Everyone is just adding to the shared clips. But that also means you may not be able to remove any clips. After the next sync - they will be added from the shared clips.

Auto synchronize will periodically read from the shared folder and sync your local clips based on your settings. If "Allow save" is enabled - all your clips are then saved to the shared folder.

Text clip panel
Added items are now properly sorted.

Fixed a few issues.

Open and save dialog windows
With newer versions of Windows 10 the light/dark Windows system themes now change the colors used in the open/save dialog windows. To fix some draw issues when using program themes in the editor - I had to make some changes to the style hooks used to retrieve system colors and draw theme elements.

Home tab
Made several design changes to make it easier to navigate using keyboard.
I also added check boxes on the recent files tab.

The search on all tabs have been replaced by a fuzzy search.
Fuzzy search will find all items with entered letters in correct order. Then order them depending on relevance. The most relevant items at top.
Relevance is decided by factors like found string in the file name, most found letters in the file name or path, capitalization...

* You can use left/right arrows to switch between recent list tabs.
* You can use Ctrl+Space to select items and Ctrl+Up/Down to move without selecting.
* You can select several items by clicking on the check boxes, using the mouse.
* You can press the open button to open file(s), which may be easier when using a mouse.

Recent files list
Fussy search is now used to find and list items in order of relevance.
If entered character is found in the file name - the items gets a higher priority. The same happens if a matching capital letter is found.

Project panel
You can now drag a document tab to the project tree to add the document to an open project.

The search field now use "fuzzy search". The match order, in the drop down list, is sorted by relevance.

Mouse click on a found search item should now open the file properly.

Added four new properties to the "MainApp" object.

Code: Select all

- ProjectActive: bool    // Check if a project is open
- ProjectName  : string  // Get project name
- ProjectDir   : string  // Get project folder
- ProjectPath  : string  // Get project path
Auto completion
Made some changes and changed several icons.

Made extensive changes and updated the syntax files.

Syntax Editor
Added several new toolbar buttons and functions.

* Drop down list to instantly change the icon of the selected items.
* Two type of sorting: normal sort and sort by grouping items by its icon.
* Cut, copy and paste. If you have several syntax files open at once - you can copy and paste between syntax files.

Find in files
Added prompt when doing "replace all", to prevent accidental replace.

Code dropdown trees (user toolbar)
Made some minor visual changes and fixed a few issues.

* Minor improvements in explorer panel options.
* Added error messages when changing document encoding and it fails.
* Added error messages when converting file encoding and it fails.

* Abbreviation issue in new installs.
* Search bar issues.
* Document map issue when closing dual document view.
* Preview panel issue.
* Plus many other issues sent by email.

I'm not going to add more new features to this version, but I still have some bugs to fix. I'll release a beta version when done.
