The list of open files is a good idea, but is probably too difficult to 
implement in a script.  A tool panel the displays all open files is 
probably more doable.  We'll look at possibly adding a list of open 
files in the future.

It should only be slower the first time and then faster after that.  It 
should also be faster the first time in the next release.

We need to add this.  A workaround to get the path of the file is to use 
open from keyboard, select the path, and then copy it.

I'll increase the priority on supporting this.

Could you send an example of where this isn't working to 
support at wingware.com ?

Do you mean parameters in the autocompleter or something else?

Hmm, I guess it depends on the frequency of multiline comments as to 
whether it's better to insert a # after enter or not.

We'll add this.

This should happen automatically when you edit an existing file set.  Is 
it not working?
