Greetings, Thought I'd share with you all some initial impressions. I've been using= Wing=20 1.1.5 for about 10 days, and was at last impressed enough with it to buy = it. I'm running it on GNU/Linux (RedHat 7.3), with the KDE 3.0 desktop manage= r. o The Windows menu of the Source Browser grows in width by a pixel or = two=20 each time it's shown. I managed to get it as wide as my screen over a fe= w=20 days. o I've crashed Wing a few times by selecting a code block and then=20 left-clicking within that code block (as if I were going to drag it, but = I=20 didn't). o The ctrl+fn key combos conflict with KDE's use for those, which is t= o=20 switch between desktops. So I can't search for the selection forward or=20 backward, use Next/Previous View, etc. Sure wish there was a way to twea= k=20 Wing's keyboard mappings! o The Search/Replace manager is funky, and I still haven't gotten=20 comfortable with it. Haven't figured out how to keyboard-navigate from t= he=20 Search field to the Replace field. The default "beep" is obnoxious (plai= n=20 and too loud, and I hear this a lot) -- wish I could have Wing play a sou= nd=20 file of my choosing instead. Those are all nits -- I'm pleased with the professional quality and featu= re=20 set. So far I'm glad I paid the $$$ (that damned trial license box was=20 driving me nuts :) - Stephen Bartlett --=20 Stephen Bartlett, President Bartlett Software, Inc. http://www.bartlettsoftware.biz/
