No, because then you would have to switch to the Snippets tab and then find the <p> snippet. Takes longer then just typing it. :P

I just use Ctrl + Enter. Inserts the "p" tags with the cursor between them ready to add paragraph. Using the shortcut keys is much quicker than the code completion for me. Shift + Enter gives you the <br> tag, but haven't checked if it puts the correct one depending on the document type, i.e., XHTML 1 <br />.

Thanks Ron, I keep forgetting about the shortcut keys (SirAGE keeps harping at me to learn them lol, but old brains .... nuff said.)

Still would like it to be as above though as I am sure I would use it more that way than with the shortcut keys (now if we could make our own shortcut keybindings, that would be a whole different story, I know I'd use many of them that way then.)

A shortcut key to what the shortcut keys are would be nice.:lol:
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

-more things to add.... :

I want to click on the line-number in the Edit window to "select" the whole line...
and when I keep pressed the mouse-button and drag down - more lines should be selected....

1) When using a mouse with a wheel in Windows, scrolling the wheel scolls the page.
But - when a 1:1 scrolling it takes forever to scroll up and down.

Therefore the mouse-driver have a setup to change the "vertical scrolling speed", a setting most windows apps uses.

A 1:4 ratio f.ex makes the screen "jump" (not slow scrolling) 4 lines for each tiny movement of the mouse-wheel...

PLEASE implement this...


2) Font size in edit window. Sometimes it makes sense to see more text inside the edit frame, or less (so I can work without my glasses :P),

I would like to be able to on-the-fly change font-size in the Edit window the same way as we do in Word - pressing CTRL+mousewheel


3) I sometimes edit several files, with the same name, from different folders,... and it is not always easy to keep track of which file is what...

A feature of changing colors on the Tabs for open files would be great... not storing it anywhere.. just a simple way to keep track of things..

It could be implemented on right-click on a Tab, popping up a list of 5-10 colors, and picking color will Set that color on the active Tab.

Oh, I use the shortcut keys as well. Someone had a question about the auto complete so I was showing them how to use it. As it does not pertain to just the p tag it has all of them. :P I was just using the p tag as an example.

Actually not a bad suggestion as to get to them now you have to go to Help>View Help File (PDF)>Scroll to Page 90.:P Maybe shorter would be F1 then page 90 if editor is in focus. :lol:

Better yet, how about allow us to set our own shortcuts...

Would be nice for those that are currently unassigned by the Editor which mostly adhere to the commonly known shortcuts used on other programs.
