Hey, I'm really liking the editor. I just wanted to point out a couple of problems and annoyances I found in 2.4. Do what you will with them:
-An unsaved file should have an asterisk so it's alittle easier to see what classes you haven't saved. EX: myPawn.uc*
-When you close a file, it should go to the previous tab, not the very first.
-When I installed Unreal X-Editor, I checked "open all .uc files with X-Editor", however it didn't work. When I do 'Open with...' and select X-Editor on a .uc file, instead of opening the file in X-Editor, it tries to reopen the X-Editor application.
-Ability to change the color of class names. What I'm talking about is in brackets: class [myPawn] extends [UDKPawn];
-When you create a new file and save it, it will still be called 'Empty File'. After the second time you save, it will treat it as a new save again, but it will save it correctly(name changes and won't 'Save as...' when its suppose to 'Save').
-Holding Shift and pressing backspace to erase doesn't work.
-Right clicking a class in the package viewer should bring up a menu with the following options: New..., Rename..., Delete, Duplicate.
-When it asks "Would you like to close all tabs?" You have to click "Close tabs" A couple of times for it to work.
-After every action, the cursor is black for 2 seconds then flips white 2 seconds. With a dark background, make the cursor start white after an action. It's really hard to see where it's at when your doing alot.
-Hovering your mouse for 3 secs over a file tab should pop-up a message showing a portion of the path to that class. EX: ...Src/MyGame/classes/myPawn.uc
-When you try to open a file thats already open in X-Editor, it should select the tab of that file instead of opening a duplicate of that file.
However, I installed Unreal X-Editor with "open all .uc files with X-Editor" option ticked and unticked. Both worked correctly. Can you please try them again and let me know.
that didn't work for me either
would also be nice if it remembered what files were open the last time you used the program
I'll also give you a kiss if you add a code explorer, much like in this:
It's like your Package Viewer, but it shows all the vars and functions of a class in a list like so:
Clicking on the text will take you to the function/variable.
The editor crashes for me at start.
It loads then I see its interface and loading of documentation page and a tiny progress bar at bottom (I have like 1-2 seconds to click menus/close registration popup), then the window closes and I receive default windows' message like Close/Debug this app.
I also tried to run "-noribbon" - doesn't help (though the option removes the toolbar as it should).
The error looks like this:
<img with the error was here>
First the application window appears, then it begin to do something, then I see some icons in tray which tell me that X-Editor is not configured.
Then the application window closes and the Close/Debug dialogue appears (I just merged it on the screenshot to post in one image)
