What is the difference between a main and non-main package and how do I make a main one?

Is there an easier way to format code than Edit > Advanced > Format, such as through a keybind?

What does this forum setting do?

Hello 199t8,

Welcome on our forum! We appreciate that you decided to join us.

In short main package is a package with main function. All other packages (non-main) are playing a support role to the main package. For example main package is your application let's call it HomeBudget and supportive package (non-main) is CtrlLib which contains all UI code.

I highly suggest reading following articles:
- Getting Started
- GUI Tutorial

Above articles should give you basics understanding of U++ concepts. If you are looking for more, you can study all tutorials.

Is there an easier way to format code than Edit > Advanced > Format, such as through a keybind?

You can already do it by opening TheIDE key configuration menu "Setup > Keyboard shotcutrs.." and then finding "Format code in Editor". Here is the screenshot:

Thanks!

Since I began with an empty package, I needed to add a configuration flag (whatever that is) in addition to a main function for it to register as a main package.

I've fixed the broken link. It was originally that way because the forum wouldn't let me add images on my first post.

Also, is there a to make the IDE show which files are unsaved? Or is this irrelevant since the editor aggressively autosaves? And how do modules and settings sync if possible work with version control (Git)?
