[wingide-users] Suggested Feature for Search and Replace

No, because the comments refer to the real-world entity that I'm working on
(a predicate, a verb, etc.). I try to use the same names for attributes
whenever possible, but often need to affix them to discriminate among
individuals of the same category (predicate2, linking_verb, etc.).

In the Search and Replace Options list, it would be nice to have an option
'Ignore text in triple quotes and comments'. I tend to use full words as
variable names wherever possible for readability, and I also tend to comment
my code extensively. The result is that when I'm searching on or changing a
variable name or a text value, I sometimes get as many hits in my comments
as I do in the code, and I have to keep cycling through to make sure I've
caught all & only the hits in the code.


BTW, I'm sure you are aware that, at least under Windows, pop-ups in the
lower-right corner such as the S&R Options list often fall off the screen &
require that I move Wing over to the left so I can see them. And I'm sure
that's on your list for the GTK update...


Why would you change the variable names in your code, but leave the old
names in your comments? Doesn't that make the comments confusing?
