Where can I find....Or how do I....Or new features?

Post by gwmbox » Sat Jan 08, 2011 8:43 am

Not sure if these are options already available or if these would be considered feature requests, so anyway here goes :)

1. Within Homesite is it possible to have the line that is in use, which I have it selected to show a dotted line top and bottom, to have it in a different shade so it is more visible?
2. The ability to select multiple images from the file browser and drag them into the editor pane and have them all automatically added in order from top to bottom in place of having to do it one at a time
3. When changing an image tag the width and size does not get updated to the new image, is there a setting for it to auto update to the new size?
4. Define your own buttons and toolbars within Topstyle (Homesite had this functionality)
5. When in scripting (javascript, php, perl etc) have the relevant alternate bracket, parenthesis highlighted so you can visually see the other end, I know you can CTRL M but it would be good to have it highlighted (Webuilder does this well)
6. Implement a compare files option so if you have a split window yo can select to have both sides compared against each other. I do this with Winmerge, but it would be great to have this built into Topstyle.
7. Chrome style checker and validator
8. Drag and drop text :P

Thanks

I agree with 5, for html tags also. I've used editors that highlight these automatically and it's very helpful. Could be an option that you can turn on or off.

So do I take it then that all in my list currently is NOT available in TopStyle?

If so can I ask then what out of the 8 will be incorporated into a future edition of TopStyle?

Thanks

Your post may be more useful under the feature request forum.

I also vote for #5 - highlighting the alternate open/close tag or bracket would be very helpful especially when dealing with complex code.

#4 - The existing clip library and auto complete features may meet your needs. You can also customize the HTML toolbar see: http://www.htmlvalidator.com/CSEForum/v ... 1102#p4936

Notepad++ has a lot of these features you are looking for but then it is also lacking in other areas.
I think we are in the same boat, as a longtime HomeSite user, I feel that I am in limbo right now looking for a proper code editor replacement.

I have added a new setting named "Current Line Color" here: Options (F8) > Editor > Color Coding.

To be included with 4.0.0.84

Thanks, Stefan.

Right-click on the <img> tag. Then click on: "calculate width and height".

The HTML toolbar is fully customizable. You can add your own snippets because the HTML toolbar is essentially a collection of HTML and JavaScript documents that are in this directory: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Bradsoft.com\TopStyle\4.0\HtmlToolbar

I'm planning on adding all of the above to TopStyle 5.
