|What is missing most
|Fri, May 25 2012 2:41 AM
Since your hands are full preparing the first release I have been holding back on feauture and improvement requests. I rather try solving the problems myself. But there is one thing what is quite big for me causing quite a pain: the lack of some delphi editor functionality I use all the time like
- code completion
- navigating between interface and implementation (ctrl up/down)
- finding declarations
- jumping back and forward
It turned out that these have such a great effect on coding that I had to go back using delphi for coding for EWB. The time I have spent navigating the code was just to much and felt like running in water. It required creating a pas version of the framework and some other small tricks, but it was worth it. But it has its disadvantages too. Most of all keeping sync the interface section is an extra job whenever you are changing it ... inline initialization of members is a no go with delphi and it is not just handy it might have some effect on performance (: Or not. ...
I had the impression that you will be through with the documentation soon, so I thought maybe, hopefully it is time for a topic like this.

No, I haven't touched the documentation in about 2 weeks - I've been dealing
with requests/bugs that keep popping up here.
The code editor is what it is, and won't be changing for a long time.
There's just way too much else to worry about. If it's that much of a
problem for you, then please contact Sam in sales and request a refund.

I am sorry, I had no idea, that you were still working on the code.
I can totaly relate to your situation and as said before I am working on my own solving the problems which come up. The reason of this post was to provide feedback. As many of your costumers are coming from the Delphi world I just simply think this is something you will hear from other people too.
