Ack! I recommend using the Autosave plug-in. Notepad++ is pretty good about not crashing, but sometimes it does. I think my recent crash may be related to the auto-complete, so I'm just using the function completion, but turning of the automatic function hint. I just hit ctrl-shift-space if I want to see the hint.

I just lost the starting development of the button editor, but only like 30 min of work. My autosave is set to every 5 min now, just in case this happens again.

Here's a very useful Notepad++ Macro you can use. Copy the "Copy Block" tag in to your Macros tag in shortcuts.xml in your ApplicationData/Notepad++ directory:

Copy Block:
Code:
    <Macros>
        <Macro name="Copy Block" Ctrl="yes" Alt="no" Shift="yes" Key="67">
            <Action type="0" message="2451" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2332" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="43026" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="44030" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2306" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2304" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2453" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2301" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2178" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2304" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2453" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="44031" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="43041" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="43032" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2451" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
            <Action type="0" message="2453" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
        </Macro>
    </Macros>


Or if you don't already have custom macros you can just copy this file to your Application Data/Notepad++ directory as shortcuts.xml.

TO USE MACRO: shift-ctrl-C

The only requirement is that you have the cursor somewhere in the collapsible block of text you want to copy. This makes it real easy to copy your current text in to RPedit. I'm using the latest version of Notepad++ and I don't know will happen if you use an older version... but it'll probably work.

I just updated all maptool.xml and userDefineLang.xml with new keywords, functions, prefixes and common words.

Go to Original Post for files.

Thanks for this. It's a great resource, and is preventing my Earthdawn 3rd Ed framework from dying of neglect.

Glad to hear it. I put this all together for my own selfish reasons, but I'm happy to share with those around me.

I just added the resources needed to get the spell checker to work. I don't need it very often while coding, but it's nice to have when I do. See original post for the 2 file downloads. If you work in non-english, you can download the first link and click 3rd link for a different dictionary language download.

I totally missed a thread about modifying Maptool's interface so the edit pane can show larger text. I added a file and directions in the OP to make the edit pane font larger and bold. I also included a pet peeve fix with button margin spacing and reduce it from 12px to 4px. Looks good and doesn't take up all that darn space.

A link to the TinyLaF thread by JonathanTheBlack is also in the OP if you want to make your own changes.

Quick question on the theme put up.

Do all the clients also have to have this theme installed in their maptool directory? If I design forms and such using your 4px spacing will the connected users see it as 4px or 12px?

It does look alot better by the way.

Yes, you'll have to have your clients download the theme as well for them to see it correctly.

Yes. Everything that isn't part of the campaign is local to the machine: TinyLAF theme, global macros, preferences, resource library, etc.

With the exception of the Aspell files, they are pretty small files. I added them to the first post in a zip file.

Thanks! Works perfect on my portable install. Just had to change the fonts from Arial to Consolas to get to a mono-spaced font. Would use Droid-Mono, but can't install it here.

I have decided to try NP++ out for codeing Maptool macros. Looks like it will make it easier.

I decided to use the .zip install.

I am attempting to place the userDefineLang.xml and shortcuts.xml files in the locations you instructed, but I do not have a notepad++ folder in the application data folder. I assume it's becuase I am using the zip version that I unziped to a flash drive. I can run notepad++ from the drive, but don't know where I need to place these files now. Any idea?

If you can wait until Monday, I will let you know. I use the portable version of Notepad++ on my PC at work. Since we have standardized systems that the main IT office enforces. So I am not allowed to install stuff on it, but I use this program for almost any text work I do. If you get the portable version, there is a special folder made that notepad++ looks for inside the directory where the exe is run. If this is there, it will use the files from that folder, if not, it will look in the usual places.
