Changes in Qedit for Windows 4.6.11

New Features

Document Database

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.

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.

Recent Files command

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.
