Changes in Qedit for Windows 4.6.11
Qedit now maintains a document database. For each file that you access,
whether it's a local or host file,
Qedit stores a number of document-specific attributes in the database:
Every time you open a file, Qedit looks for its name in the database. If the filename exists,
Qedit uses the recorded attributes.
- the cursor position or selection active at the time
- the display status of the Ruler bar and Record numbers
- current Tab settings
- current Guide settings
- all of the check-box settings from the File Options dialog
- the font settings from the File Options dialog.
Most Recently Used Files
|Qedit saves the name of the 16 most recently accessed files. You can then open one of
these files using the Recent Files command of the File menu.
The filenames are stored as fully-qualified names. For local files, the drive
letter and the complete path is displayed.
Host files are also fully-qualified using the appropriate syntax for the host they reside on.
They are prefixed by the Connection name. Qedit also keeps track of the options used at the
last open i.e. Read-only or Force Unnumbered.
File Types in Directory Dialog
A File Type column has been added to the Directory dialog. Although the column
is always displayed, only MPE hosts provide information of this nature. On MPE, files can
have special codes to describe the type of file. These are known as filecodes and are really
just numbers. However, Qedit is able to convert these numbers into short mnemonics that are
a bit more meaningful. You need version 4.6.56 of the server to use this feature.
Toolbar and Status bar
Qedit saves the display status of the Toolbar and the Status bar across
invocations. This means that if they are not displayed when you exit, they will remain
hidden when you get back in Qedit.
