Thanks for your reply Martin. I really do appreciate your attempt at explaining the purpose
of the example I brought up, but seriously, if you put yourself in my place of not ever
having seen SubEthaEdit before then you will see that I still have no idea what Symbols are
or how they are used. I gathered that the buttons took you to the next one or the previous
one, since that is how they are labeled. And I can only guess at what they are used for or
how one goes about creating one. What I *want* them to do is to allow me to place
markers in my file so I can quickly hop around from place to place.
Also what I want is an easy way to make scripts without having to dive headfirst into
Applescript. Can I record a series of actions into a script? 3 of my favorite scripts that I use
in BBEdit are F5=finds next occurrence of the current selection forward in the file,
F6=finds it backwards, and F7=finds selection anywhere as a label (i.e., starts in col#1).
So, how would I do this in SubEthaEdit?
I did manage to make my own Mode file (for a Freescale MC9S08) using another mode file
as a template. It works but I don't really know what I'm doing.
If I had a decent manual and can easily add scripts to this, I'd buy it. Right now I'm on the
fence, cause I like what I see in SubEthaEdit but I can navigate easier and more quickly
through my edit with BBEdit.
Get me a manual before my 30 days expire, OK? :)
