      Can I know how did you do your macros for the commenting, as I use a lot of
      commenting and uncommenting.

      Subject: Re: [edit+] Re: Can we write multiple lines at the same time

      I personally have two crucial macros that I use all the time. One is
      ALT+0 which will append whatever I have in my clipboard to the end of
      the current line and then move the cursor to the beginning of the next
      line. The other is ALT+9 which does the same for the beginning of a line.

      So if I have 4 lines like:

      I copy to my clipboard the text (with a space at the end):
      Hello world and Hello EditPlus users

      And position my cursor in front of James and press ALT+9. The macro
      (consisting of: CTRL+v, Home, Down) pastes the clipboard text in front
      of my line and leaves my cursor at the beginning of the next line. I
      just press ALT+9 4 times and I've got it. I never have to change this
      macro. If I needed to do it 150 times in a row, I can just
      Tools->Record->Playback Multiple and select Macro 9 and enter 150.

      These combined with other permanent macros I have, have become by
      lifeline. I have one which converts a line of HTML code to php printed
      code escaping all double quotes. I also have a macro which converts
      that back. I keep all my permanent macros above 5 and all the ones I
      recreate for each project below. Beautiful system if you ask me. ;o)

      P.S. My other useful tool would be the line comment which I set up a
      keyboard shortcut as CTRL+ALT+C. Then you just highlight the lines,
      press CTRL+ALT+C and enter the text you want to pre pend to each line.
