Hi Artie,

If your screen is wide, what you could do is placing the External View right or left beside the coding window.

Have to agree with Inger, I support multiple sites and have found it best to right click and test with a new browser(s) window so I can insure what the change is going to look like in a real window. Especially true when positioning text and images.

Hi Inger, Thanks for the workaround. Ahh.. hope Scott is well, had very good conversations with him in the past. He'll be missed..

Ok, The feel is still not there as it would be as the horizontal preview is.. Primarily, the code following feature is key for me without using the external preview. I guess my point is, If the feature of having the horizontal preview, why not add the vertical preview as well?

The detached preview just don't have the feel on code following and quick changes as the internal preview.

This is something I can't understand why it can't be implemented. Thanks anyhow for the suggested workaround,. I still wish this can be added.

I don't understand exactly what you mean by 'code following'. It sounds like you are talking about how fast the preview updates itself after you have made some change.

I thing 'code following' usually means what is listed in Tools-> preferences at the bottom left (see attachment). Especially the middle option could be worth unchecking if you don't want code to be followed.
There is also that little chain thingie at the bottom of the coding page. If you disable it (double-click), links that go out to other sites will not be followed while working.

Hi Inger, I can't explain it any clearer than what I have tried.. I LOVE THE CODE FOLLOWING! That's what help me get around faster in the coding and page previews. That is the primary request on what I am asking as a vertical internal preview like the horizontal preview.

All I am requesting is a vertical preview in addition to the horizontal preview that already exists..

That's All.

Respectfully, Artie

Love the program, it does so many things Notepad++ does that I use daily thank you for making a Swiss army knife program, it's really becoming a working mans IDE.

Suggestion when closing tags, can there be an option to either close and go to end of tag like ex: <div>| and not <div|> I'm using the pipe here to show were the cursor is when you close the tag. Sorry it's in mussle memory from coding so long, I close the tag and hit the left arrow and then add anything between the tag and then move on.

Thank You
Warren

If you want to give your <div> tags a class name or some styling, the '<div|>' is definitely more practical.

I've used the HTML Editor since 2009 and I love it! Thanks for all the hard work you've put in it.
I have a (small?) suggestion: since I work on several projects, each with its own set of images, could it be possible to specify a "default image folder" in the "Website Project Setting" (for each project) rather than in "Preferences" (one folder common to all projects)?
Kindest regards
Daniel
