I've been using WingIDE Pro for over 3 years now, of which, the majority of
time was on Windows.
As of a few months ago I started working full time in OS X and decided to
stick with Wing. But I must
say that the quality bar drops significantly from Windows to OS X.

I know it's not a simple task, but, my wish is that the WingIDE's user
experience should be the same, regardless
of what OS you're on.

Let me know when this new feature is available and I'll be more than happy
to try it out!
