[REBOL] Re: Editor

From: jim:clatfelter at: 25-Jun-2002 18:20

Thanks to all for the suggestions. Here are the problems with using focus my-area. This places the caret at the end of the file instead of where it actually is in the text. It also works only for short pieces of text. Once the text gets to about 7 lines, Rebol creates a line-list. Once it does that, the button stops working at all. Try loading a text file and using the Date button. It does nothing if focus my-area is in there. It works okay as it is. The only problem is that it doesn't work the first time after using the keyboard. The caret disappears. You have to then use the mouse and click to place the cursor. Then the button works, all the buttons work in the html editor. But they stop working again (just once) after you press a key. It's annoying, and it really makes the editor not very worth sharing. To answer the question of whether I have 70 editors, no I don't. ed-70.r has 70 characters per line on the screen and the printer. ed-64.r has 64. a-a-edit has 99 on the screen and 80 on the printer. It wraps the line at 80 characters. Those are the only three I have so far. I use them for different purposes, ed-70 to send email, a-a-edit to edit html files, and ed-64 to print pages of text with nice margins. I'd still be glad if someone can figure this one out. everything else works correctly. Thanks, Jim You can see the focus problem using the DATE button. It doesn't work after using the keyboard. This one needs a text file called send-to.lst to run. It's just a list of addresses you want to send email to. This one has all the html buttons. It would really be nice to solve the problem on this one.
