Move-Drop Icon too big
Submitted by Anonymous on Friday, 18 March, 2005 - 12:17
If you find the icon for the move / drop operation gets in the way and obscures where you want to drop selection try this solution:
This is using j2re1.4.2_06 - the problem may not exist in other versions
Find file "motif_MoveDrop32x32.gif"
in
/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06/lib/images/cursors/motif_MoveDrop32x32.gif
or wherever your jre folder is
Open in gimp (may have to change read/write permission)
Select white area - leave just little bit of white around edge
Make it transparent
Save.

This will, I expect change icon, in all java apps.
You could also try editing "cursors.properties"
I'm sure there might be better wys but this seems to work!
Removing period at the end of line
Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 16 March, 2005 - 14:24
Is there a way to not display the "." period at the end of each line. I find it very hard to edit anything with jedit because the language I use already uses periods at the end of line. Having to periods at the end kind of throws me off. Any help appreciated.
Thanks.
Highlighting Matching Tag Issue
Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 16 March, 2005 - 07:23
Hi, I know there is a way for Jedit to outline the matching tag with any color given, but is there a way to have it set a background color for the matching tag instead of just outlining it?

Thanks.
How to move profile directory ?
Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, 15 March, 2005 - 14:58
Is there a way to move jedit's profile directory under windows from "C:\Documents and Settings\username\.jedit" to another location ?
Since the profile space is restricted to 20 MB in our network, I've got to (partially) delete it before I can log off.
ErrorList errors
Submitted by Anonymous on Saturday, 12 March, 2005 - 09:39
I have problem when using javac. Errors from javac are recognized as warnings in ErrorList plugin. JCompiler doesn't have that problem.

With jikes there is a problem in showing errors in edit pane. Whole line is underlined as error, but it should underline just a part of line that jikes is showing like this: D:/work/SomeClass.java:105:22:105:34:
1. number is beginning line, 2. is beginning column, 3. ending line and 4. number is ending line of error.
auto indent inserts tabs
Submitted by mapo on Friday, 11 March, 2005 - 10:55
Hi,
although I chose "Indent with: Soft (emulated with spaces) tab" in the global options, the smart indent uses tabs. Why?
Thank you

button to launch java program ?
Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, 8 March, 2005 - 09:10
the JCompiler plugin provides a command to compile a java file, that I can associate to a button.
But how do I create a button to execute the current java file ?
I can't believe that I have to write the "java ..." command in the console to do that.
I've look at the FAQ, I've not found this question: noboby uses Jedit to develop java applications ? Eye-wink

question about using Console Plugin
Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 2 March, 2005 - 09:45
I am sorry for my not good English.
Console Plugin allows users to set compiler and interpreter for each buffer format.
I need to set the following program to be the interpreter for Haskell buffers.
C:\Program Files\Hugs98\winhugs.exe (a Windows program path)
To do that, I opened Console Plugin option, and the option dialogbox displayed the following options for interpreters:

none
ant
diff
hugs
java
... etc..

There was "hugs" in the list, but no "winhugs". In this case, what should I do?
What will make the winhugs.exe to appear in the list?

Thanks in advance.

Running JUnit plugin from within Ant (Farm) task?
Submitted by Anonymous on Monday, 28 February, 2005 - 22:21
I want to run JUnit as an Ant task and have installed AntFarm and JUnit.

My class path lets me _compile_ JUnit tests OK via AntFarm.

However, when I try to make JUnit _run_ as an Ant task, I get an error in AntFarm:
Invalid build file: Unexpected element "junit"

Any advice? Thanks in anticipation.

Build file is at http://www.tomoakley.net/java/build.xml
Proper perl function argument list indentation?
Submitted by jope on Monday, 28 February, 2005 - 20:32
When I edit perl and there is a function with very long argument lists and arguments, like so:
$thisIsSomeObject->andThisTheFunctionToCall("Here comes a long argument, number 1","And here another one, which is even longer than the first argument is","And yet another very very very very long arument, yes this is really quite long");
I would like to place the arguments indented the normal indentation space like this (in my case, two characters from the current indentation):
$thisIsSomeObject->andThisTheFunctionToCall("Here comes a long argument, number 1",
  "And here another one, which is even longer than the first argument is",
  "And yet another very very very very long arument, yes this is really quite long");
#next statement should not be indented, of course

However, jedit does it either like this:

$thisIsSomeObject->andThisTheFunctionToCall("Here comes a long argument, number 1",
"And here another one, which is even longer than the first argument is",
"And yet another very very very very long arument, yes this is really quite long");
#next statement should not be indented, of course
(no indentation at all) or like this, if the "deep indent" option is used:
$thisIsSomeObject->andThisTheFunctionToCall("Here comes a long argument, number 1",
                                            "And here another one, which is even longer than the first argument is",
                                            "And yet another very very very very long arument, yes this is really quite long");
#next statment should not be indented, of course
Both ways jedit does this have obvious disadvantages if you are already at a deeper indentation level and/or if the arguments are really long or deeply nested themselves. Is there *SOME* way to make Jedit indent the arguments just two spaces and not the same number of spaces as the function name is long? Is it possible to configure this? Is it possible to edit some mode file to achieve this?
Only open one window at startup: how?
Submitted by Anonymous on Monday, 28 February, 2005 - 19:02
I am using 4.2final on Linux and everytime I start jedit it opens as many windows as were open the last time. Since I have checked the apropriate setting for not to load the files used in the last session, all these windows show empty buffers. I would like jedit to only open a single window though -- this must be easy but somehow I cannot seem to find out how.

jedit multiple sessions
Submitted by Anonymous on Thursday, 24 February, 2005 - 08:22
Hi to all members,

I'm a new user of Jedit, and I didn't manage to open multiple sessions : in fact I installed Jedit 4.2 on SunOS 5.8 server, and it works fine when I execute it from server. but, from another station, even with the environment variable DISPLAY well set, if I launch Jedit, the window is opened on the server console, and not on the client console !

Have you an idea about this problem ?

Thanks.
Updating Jazzy spell-checker user dictionary
Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 23 February, 2005 - 16:41
I'm using the Jazzy spell checker. I find the instructions confusing (and out of date). My user dictionary is in a "words" directory, which is used correctly. However, clicking "Add to Dictionary" doesn't update any dictionary, altho it accepts this request without comment.

Any suggestions on how to get it to update a dictionary would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Project Viewer does nothing
Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, 22 February, 2005 - 22:35
I installed a basic version of JEdit and then added the project viewer plugin. I created a new project and selected the "Yes, import all files in root directory" option when prompted. Now, when I return the the Plugins->Project Viewer->Projects menu I can see the new project. However, when I select this project from the popup menu, nothing happens. I don't see a toolbar or anything. The root folder has files and directories underneath it. Am I missing something? The help documentation doesn't seem helpful because I can't even see the toolbar that it mentions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Tripp
XML plugin - Characters to entities
Submitted by Anonymous on Friday, 18 February, 2005 - 15:20
When I use the XML/Characters to entities menu item, EVERY special character is converted, even the < or > charachters, so that my XML or HTML code is no more usable. How may I tell the XML plugin NOT to convert the <, >, quotes etc. found in the html tags ?
