The Wing IDE is great stuff. But I *hate* the way search works. I find my self drifting back to emacs because search works *so* much better there. In Emacs I type C-f and the isearch prompt appears in the "mini-buffer" area. Nothing is obscured on the screen. If I type C-f again, I get the previous search string. If I start typing letters then the incremental search commences. In Wing I type C-f and it pops up a dialog obscuring part of my screen. If I hide the dialog, then next time I type C-f (sometime later in the session) it immediately searches for whatever I searched for last which is usually the WRONG thing. I have to delete that string (which I can't see because the dialog is hidden) then I can start searching. Ack! Could we use the status line or the line at the top that usually says "Debugger: Ready and idle" to display the search string instead of this dialog? Is this something a user could reasonably hack into the code? Wing really is great stuff. But this one thing drives me crazy... gb
