- Oct 1, 2004Can I know how did you do your macros for the commenting, as I use a lot of
commenting and uncommenting.

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.
