D - DIDE Feedback

DIDE looks great.

Rough spots I noticed first using it:

  - Reopening projects (.dprj) from the list of recently used files
    opens the project file as text file. It would be more useful if
    it opened the project.

  - Add file to project only allows single selection. It would be
    nice to be able to select multiple files.

  - The editor needs the "auto intent" feature.

  - I would rearrange the menus. Remove "Menu choice" completely. 
    Move menu "Updates" items to the "Help" menu. 
    Rename "Global settings" to "Settings"  and add 
       - "Project - Settings" as "Settings - Project"
       - "View - Change font" to "Settings - Editor"

  - Print preview shows empty page.

Is it ok to put DIDE (and other D project) feedback here?

Hmm hadn't noticed that I'll fix it.

Ok Ill add.
   - The editor needs the "auto intent" feature.

It should support this feature, but tabs must be enabled, unless by auto indent you mean after selecting { it adds an 'extra' indent. I hesitated to put this in there because it usually messes up when im modifying code in VS. I can also add things like insert a matching } after {, ) after (, \" after \" etc (speaking of which I don't thing WYSIWIG strings should be included in the compiler, I think the editor should have this burden ), with an option to turn it off an editor settings.
   - I would rearrange the menus. Remove "Menu choice" completely.

Ahh but those are fun! I'll move it to the Settings menu. Charles "Helmut Leitner" <helmut.leitner chello.at> wrote in message news:3F2B6257.C11AFB6A chello.at...
