    i like to code too, and i wish i had such a powerfull editor, but i never found one...
    best u can do is taking an editor whith macro/script, and make ur own script
    or search some other ways to make same result :

    "It would be a grate aid if I could just drag a box around all the dims and delete them at once like this"
    u can try to search and replace "dim" with nothing

    "Or when I copy them and paste them again before other variables they would still be underneath each other, if you know what I mean."
    u can for eg search in hexa "0D0A" and replace with "0D0A blabla"

    btw i use "010 editor" because its very fast to open binaries, but syntax color is weak..

    Easy way to get rid of single words/strings without breaking the formatting:

    • Open code-text in notepad

    • Click Edit/Replace

    • Enter word or string to be removed (e.g. Dim) in the 'Find what:' field

    • Do not enter anything in the 'Replace with:' field

    • Click 'Repace All'

    • Save


    Thats what i usually do, still i would like to have an app with better editing options too...

    In addition to Phazor reply – you can always use regex replacement and/or "box selection"
    In MS VS the latter is Shift-Alt-Arrows or "hold down Alt & drag with the mouse to get a rectangular selection of text"

    @Stannieman the shift alt arrow things works.

    ...and based on those variables I see you have something planned. Are you using the msi files or patches to extend Channel Switcher because I came up with my patch system I told you about and thought of a nice way to implement it.

    For text editor You have to make coding with specific programming language. You can also search text editor program in Google also like search source code of text editor in__language.

    Shift alt indeed works, and yes I'm iplementing support for all office products right now for channel switcher 1.3. And if MS uses the same SP1 for both office, visio and project then 1.4 will have sp1 slipstream support.

    @sebus: From first look textpad looks really powerfull :cool:
    And it can also past text with the shift alt function, which VS doesn't, thanks

    As Sebus Says: use textpad. You can download plugin's for different program languages.
