RichMasm new features suggestions
« on: February 26, 2018, 08:42:20 AM »
Hi Jochen,

Made this thread so I could leave suggestions for future implementation.

To start the series, here it goes one:

Split screen like emacs:
https://www.google.com.br/search?q=emacs&client=firefox-b&dcr=0&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwifo-ncg8LZAhUI7lMKHbEuBngQ_AUICigB&biw=1408&bih=703#imgrc=Ukd8zJQbknsp6M:

Pressing a shortcut, the screen is split so you can have the code in two columns (you can code in both). Very useful !

Since asm is a vertical language, this is a nice feature for a asm IDE.

Select a block of code and press Ctrl F12.

Re vertical language, yes, that's why the menu is integrated into the caption - one line of code more to see. But with proper comments, it becomes pretty horizontal ;)

Yep, but ctrl f12 gives me only a picture of the selected code. In emacs, you can code in both windows, scroll it etc


I believe f12 is a different horse right?

Yes, it's a different horse - only a small zone that permits you to see e.g. the elements of a structure definition.
If you want to code in different places, use the bookmarks, the search listbox, or use the Alt arrow left / arrow right coding history. For me, Alt arrow right is perhaps the feature that I use most frequently.
