Hello !

After using other tools and languages and now again trying ultimate++ I'm experimenting some annoyances:

- No selection highlight, when selecting a word on the editor there is no automatic highlight of the same word through the rest of the code, this feature when present makes easy to see another places where that word/identifier is used.

- Error messages from compiler are hard to work as they get mixed with warnings and success messages as well, maybe a filter button to show only errors would make it easy or even highlight the errors.

- When searching the search window always jump to the bottom of the screen, using lubuntu it get's hiding partially by the status bar, I would expect it to mantain it's position.

- Why when switching from project to project it needs to recompile everything from scratch ? If we already compiled core and a lot of other packages for the same settings why we need to recompile it again and again.

- The ide do not show the whole file hierarchy, for example I open the Http.h and there is no way to see in the hierarchy window the whole file, if I click inside a class definition only the class appear, clicking outside any definition no classes appear.

- On the package window (left bottom corner) it's hard to find something there, there is no order, the hierarchy view at least has a button to show in alphabetical order.

- Help window, I expect to have an option to detach it to have a bigger view or a full screen view instead of the squiched one inside the editor.

Thats it for now, using it more with my tests will show if there is other annoyances too.

Again thanks in advance for your time, attention and great work so far !

I does not need to and it does not usually. Anyway, main configuration has to be the same between packages (main config flags determine the output directory for object files).

First of all, with all heuristics pushed into C++ semi-parser, it is still not 100% realiable.

Anyway, there is small 'file' icon to the right of navigator "search" which might do what you desire.

Well, files in left bottom corner should have meaningful ordering by developer. Sorting them would be contraproductive.

Anyway, if you want to find the particular file, there is Alt+Shift+F "Find file".

Thanks. I think this year we will concentrate on theide a bit more, so perhaps some of annoyances will get resolved. Hope you will still be around at that time to test it Smile

I am adding some RM tasks for those of suggestions not covered yet.

Now reading this, what you mean by "hidding by status bar"? Do you mean theide status bar or lubuntu bottom pane? Theide should read workarea from host platform, workarea should account for any desktop environment features...

(Other than that, it is moved away so that you can see the found text).

Screenshot possible? Smile

I am only asking because it works fine with Mint Mate... Might be some problem with obtaining workarea from DE.

BTW, are you using multimonitor setup?

Here is a screenshoot of the find window behind the bottom pane on lubuntu.
No multimonitor, it's a simple laptop.

Another annoyance is when we are debugging and want to see/copy/scroll the value of a variable/string that is larger than the screen width there is no way to do that.

This is now somewhat fixed. Anyway, the issue is broken (I think) LXDE WM - I am telling it to put the window to be aligned with the bottom of the workspace, some "smart" logic in WM moves it down behind the bottom pane.

I have simply fixed it by moving it a bit up.
