<h3>
Scintilla Bugs
</h3>
<p>
At the end of italics style runs characters can be chopped off. An example
is using Verdana 12 point italics for strings makes an ending double quote
half visible and an ending single quote invisible. This is hard to solve
completely, may be better to avoid these situations by, for example,
choosing a font like Times New Roman for strings. There is a specific kluge
for the end of line which adds some room for italics but this does not
work elsewhere.
</p>
<p>
Dragging over bold text in some fonts will ripple because of the difference in
size between drawing all of a string at once and drawing it in parts.
</p>
<p>
Automatic scrolling when text dragged near edge of window.
</p>
<h3>
GTK+ Version Bugs
</h3>
<h3>
Scintilla To Do
</h3>
<p>
Folding for languages that don't have it yet and good folding for languages
that inherited poor folding from another languages folding code.
</p>
<p>
Simple pattern based styling.
</p>
<p>
Different height lines based upon tallest text on the line rather than on the tallest style
possible.
</p>
<p>
Composition of lexing for mixed languages (such as ASP+ over COBOL) by
combining lexers.
</p>
<p>
Printing support on GTK+. Maybe Postscript output or use Gnome?
</p>
<p>
Stream folding which could be used to fold up the contents of HTML elements.
</p>
<p>
Persisting view state such as current folding into a stream or blob so it is easy
to restore.
</p>
<p>
Printing of highlight lines and folding margin.
</p>
<p>
Flow diagrams inside editor similar to
<a href="http://www.eng.auburn.edu/grasp/grasp_main.shtml">
GRASP</a>.
</p>
<p>
A VCL component wrapper around Scintilla so it can be used with Delphi or
Borland C++ Builder.
There is <a href="http://www.pnotepad.org/scintilla/">some work</a>
on this available.
</p>
<p>
More lexers for other languages.
</p>
<h3>
SciTE To Do
</h3>
<p>
Good regular expression support through a plugin.
</p>
<p>
Allow file name based selection on all properties rather than just a chosen few.
</p>
<p>
Opening from and saving to FTP servers.
</p>
<p>
Setting to fold away comments upon opening.
</p>
<p>
User defined fold ranges.
</p>
<p>
Silent mode that does not display any message boxes.
</p>
<h3>
Features I am unlikely to do
</h3>
<p>
These are features I don't like or don't think are important enough to work on.
Implementations are welcome from others though.
</p>
<p>
Mouse wheel panning (press the mouse wheel and then move the mouse) on
Windows.
</p>
<p>
Adding options to the save dialog to save in a particular encoding or with a
chosen line ending.
</p>
<h3>
Directions
</h3>
<p>
The main point of this development is Scintilla, and this is where most effort will
go. SciTE will get new features, but only when they make my life easier - I am
not intending to make it grow up to be a huge full-function IDE like Visual
Cafe. The lines I've currently decided not to step over in SciTE are any sort of
project facility and any configuration dialogs. SciTE for Windows now has a
Director interface for communicating with a separate project manager
application.
</p>
<p>
If you are interested in contributing code, do not feel any need to make it cross
platform.
Just code it for your platform and I'll either reimplement for the other platform or
ensure that there is no effect on the other platform.
