Here's a couple suggestion I am not sure how outrageous that they may be.

I do most of my text editing through Mushclient, it has far more features than notepad and is very good at sending data back at the world.

However at times I can't tell if the text is word wrapping or if their is a Hard CR. the only way I get around this is by by going to each line and then do a delete if their is a CR it will delete otherwise the next line will move up a line and I'll have to put the letter back to the word.

If possible could their be a sort of reveal codes mode that would shows a visible representation of CRs as well as tabs optionally you could simply add to Convert CRs to Spaces under Remove Extra Blanks.


Interestingly enough there is a Clowe Window with Ctrl-W for the text editor however their is no Keystroke command for Close World. Well there is actually but... Ctrl F4 seems to be used by another one of my programs in the background (and no way to change it).

Is there a key that could be used for close world, currently Ctrl-W is given to Whisper however I don't currently see Shift F4 as being used or something else, anything!

OH OH!! I use alot of python in mushclient, and when in the text editor, I have to use tab... because Python's block statements are based on indention... so I just have to keep putting spaces and it takes up alot of time... would rather be able to just press 'tab' and have it indent instead of it going to another window or what not.

  1. You can turn wrapping off for the notepad in global configuration. Then you can tell where the linebreaks really are.

  2. To make a "close world" keystroke, change the Ctrl+W in the "macros" configuration to send "close_world" immediately (send now), and then add this alias:

      <send>world.DoCommand "close"</send>

    What that will do is pick up the "close_world" command and close your world for you.

  3. Tab should work in the notepad to indent lines.
