Select From Gutter With Right-Click
Submitted by ehtyar on Thursday, 19 March, 2009 - 00:43
Hi all.

I'm a recent jEdit convert from Notepad++. My primary motivation for converting was for a consistent experience across platforms (namely Linux vs. Windows), but I'm very impressed with jEdit all-round.

The only feature I'm missing is being able to select text blocks from the Gutter. I understand that this cannot be implemented with left-click because it would interfere with code-folding which I totally understand. After some experimentation I found that selecting from the gutter works with right-click. Unfortunately, it also triggers the standard context menu.

My request is, would it be possibly to have right-click on the gutter not display the context menu to make it possible to select text blocks from the gutter. I would very much appreciate consideration of this new feature.

Thank you, Ehtyar.

Not sure if this effects anyone else, but I noticed message preview showed a blank message for me, but when I posted the message it displayed correctly. This did not effect this comment.
