Re: Go To Specific Line (Text Editor)

Boyd, Christopher
There is a also a great and free program called TextWrangler, that has
many advanced features for searching, replacing and restructuring data.
It can also handle absurdly large text files without blinking an eye.

You can Bookmark in TextPad which is very nice tool when you have a very
long syntax and its helping me a lot.

I like Mark's suggestion about descriptive tags that you can search for.
If you prefer line numbers, one option is to use Notepad or some other
text editor (e.g., TextPad has a "go to line #" function) as your syntax
editor.  Syntax files are simply text files with a SPS extension.

A full-powered text editor like TextPad has many other capabilities that
the syntax editor lacks.

Does anyone know if there's a "Go To Specific Line" function in the
Syntax Editor window (v13 or v14) analagous to CTRL+G in Notepad?  So,
say I have a syntax file with 10,000 lines, and I want to "jump" to line
3500...

Many thanks,

--Justin

Re: Go To Specific Line (Text Editor)
To drift off topic slightly, one important feature possessed by TextPad and likely by others, but missing from the syntax editor, is the ability to limit search & replace to a block of selected text.  As far as I've discovered, the syntax editor insists on replacing every instance in the file.
