[wingide-users] Editor issue with Wing on XDarwin (OS X)

Tue, 14 May 2002 14:36:03 -0400

Clicking on the blank area before opening a file still has no effect. But
"New Window with Current View" does work. However, there is no way to change
the view in the new window when one is finished with that view. Instead, I
have to close the window and then do the "New Window with Current View"
trick again with new code.

But at least now I have a work around and can have two code windows open at
the same time.

I believe there is a bug under some window managers some of the time that
requires you to click on the surface of the new blank window in order
to get Wing to use it.

Another somewhat easier way to do this is open the new file into the
existing window and then do New Window with Current View from the File/New
area.  This moves the view out to a seperate window.  This is Ctrl-Alt-E
in normal editor mode or Ctrl-X 5 3 in emacs mode.

We don't particularly like the multi-window/view management in Wing now
and plan to change this substantially in 1.2.  But the above should
work for now.
