wish list, unbalanced tag finder.

Post by roedygr » Sun May 04, 2008 7:31 am

I would like some tools to help find unbalanced tags.

They might include:

1. lines to connect begin -end tag.

2. indented listing

3. hit some key to jump to the matching tag.

4. collapse inner guts of a tag pair so you can see the forest for the trees.

5. smart tag inserter. It figures out the 3 most plausible places to insert a missing tag or tag to remove, and lets you select, perhaps seeing the rendering for the various possibilities to help you choose.

Those are good editor suggestions. I believe that "code folding" for tags will be implemented in some future version.

I also think the key to jump to the matching tag is a good feature and I hope to include that in a future version.

I'm not sure what you mean by indented listing?

Also, have you tried using the "Structure View"? It should help finding tag pairs and un-ended tags.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have just implemented a Ctrl+M shortcut to jump to the matching tag in v8.9911 which should be available soon.
