Some feature requests
« on: September 14, 2005, 08:26:59 am »
Yes i know there is special place for feature requests, but it requires sf account, which i don't have. I hope you don't mind  :?

1) Syntax highlight

When there happens to be an error on one line, CB paints that line red. It is very hard to see whats wrong on that line, because many elements are painted as red also. Example (i "forget" second '<' before endl). I know there is an option to change that, but i think it should be different by default. Personally i like eclipse or scite (http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html) style syntax highlight :D


2) New project into new folder

I find ms visual studio way very much convenient. When i create new project it automatically creates new folder named by project name and puts everything into that folder. At least i think there should be such option. It helps to structure my (and yours of course) projects and is very handy for beginners. Beginners like i tend to create new project for everything. New project for if sentence, new project for while loops etc. Making folders by hand takes just too much time  ;)


3) Some eyecandy ;)

3.1 Background color of line numbers. It just looks cool when workspace and line number backgrounds are both the same color.
Like eclipse or ms studio 2003 has.

3.2 When windows has classical look, why CB icons look like they have some kind of border around?


Cheers

Agreed, the red/orange highlight could be a lighter color.

Oh no.  I think the CB line #s coloring scheme is much more useable and professional.  Might be an initial impression thing.  Maybe it grows on you.

Just an opinion: I agree with Priit for 1,2 with grv575 for 3
Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

To 1.
Thats a point, where you never will be able to make it right, everybody loves it a bit different.

To 3.
Eye Candy ? I don't think this is useful for bringing the programm to a more(or better) workable stage...

Also notice that the amount of attention we put to feature requests is about.... NIL :P

After we get past version 1.0 we might start working on them, right now we're fixing bugs...
