jEdit – A few days Later

As I mention last week I started using JEdit. So far its working out really well. I love the folding option for my code, it has made my life so much easier.

I’ve also created my own docmode for SaxBasic, its not complete but ongoing and very easy to use. I’ve also got several plugins loaded to help me do things, more on those later. And lastly the expand abbreviation is nice.

The one thing that I’m having trouble with is multi line selects. Before in I could just hold shift and move up or down several lines to cut and paste. Now that doesn’t get the full line length. I hope I’m just doing something wrong. Also I missing being able to hit a hot key like in UltraEdit to be able to instantly insert the current date. Hopefully I just haven’t figured that one out as well.
