PDE 6.5 suggestion/desires

Discuss topics that apply across the products, such as the PocketC language, or development in general

Since the suggestions forum won't accept posts I guess this is the most relevant place to put them. I would like to see the following implemented at some time in the future.

1) The ability to indent/un-indent a block of code.
2) The ability to add additional help items to the menu. For example I would like to add the PtoolBox documentation to the help menu.
3) The ability to open all includes that are in the set project file.
4) The ability to do a global search of all files open in the editor.
5) Color coding of the library functions. Right now all known functions are bold. It would be nice if I could assign a color after setting the library file so that the built in functions are just bold and black, any library functions could be assigned a different color bold.
6) A way to track diffs in two files. I know there are other tools out there to do this but it would be nice to have this available in the editor.
7) The ability to comment/uncomment a highlighted block.
8) The ability to find matching braces, parenthesis or quote.
9) The ability to save bookmarks when closing a file for later use.

I guess that is all for now. :D Keep up the good work Jeremy. It seems the current 6.5 version is keeping you busy but I think these suggestions would make some nice additions to the editor.

#1 is already available, select a block of text, tab moves the whole block out, shift tab moves the whole block in.
