Compiler error jump
« on: February 01, 2017, 10:20:08 am »
Hi,

Something that annoys me for a long time is that whenever there is a compiler error, the GUI decides that it's best to jump to that error even though the user might still be using the GUI for other things like looking things up.
I can't really find an option to disable this behavior. If it doesn't exist is it OK if I add this option ?

ok for me, but I would suggest to keep the default behavior to carry out the jump.

I suggested a related change that was NOT supported by at least one CB Dev.

That was to stop the changing to the "build message" in the log pane [after building was finished].

So, you might just try to stop moving to the first error in the editor window instead of what I suggested.

Do I open a ticket or do I just post a patch for this feature ?
