@frogandtoad WOW, now I just discovered the side by side diff type display. That is new AFAIK.

@frogandtoad I have never seen that, how do you invoke it? Here is what I see when I do Cmd-F

CTRL+SHIFT+F on Windows?

CTRL+SHIFT+F on Windows takes me to a search of the Arduino website, which does work OK.

Best bet is to check: "File -> Advanced -> Keyboard Shortcuts" or "Alt-Ctrl+Comma".

You can also edit the shortcuts there too.

Now that I checked, I don't see a "side by side diff type display", so not sure what @zander meant by that, as I assumed he was describing an in built diff tool feature?

@frogandtoad YES, I had the Find pane, then two copies of my sketch, one before the changes, one after the changes and IIRC all I had to do was scroll one and they both scrolled and click somewhere to 'accept' the displayed change.

I was hoping you would know about this because I don't remember how I got there.

@frogandtoad Here is a screen grab of the 'diff' display. It's possibly useful, but I 'think' I see errors in the counts, and I am not a fan of tiny fonts but still all good.

I think I also found my exclude feature, Arduino calls it fold. Still playing with it but hopeful.

The following link sheds some light on what happened to the split screens featur:

@frogandtoad Not sure if it's the same feature. This is RC8, doing a FIND / REPLACE two windows that scroll in synch showing the usual diff stuff. I stumbled on it when playing with the Find Icon on the left (magnifying glass icon) as opposed to the IDE 1 Command-F (Mac).

Also, what I have been calling excluding (from 50 years ago SPF) is now known as Code Folding. There is about a dozen keystroke cmds related to folding. I haven't tried them all out, but it is an improvement. With SPF I specified where to not show lines, the modern approach is to take away my choice and instead use logical levels like if and else levels.

The link I provided sheds some light on what happened to it, since you use a Mac, your download might be different depending on day of download etc, but it appears they are aware of it.

Code folding is still available in the rc8 IDE, the drop down carrots are hidden right next to the line numbers on mine if you hover over them - I prefer that over the plus symbols in the IDE code window itself.

@frogandtoad I knew about IDE 2 having the folding, didn't know it was an option in 1, code folding was a term I knew from compiler optimization 50 years ago so didn't associate it with what I knew as eXclusion. I don't see any + symbols in RC8, just the on demand carets. I would prefer they stay displayed, I wonder if there is a setting for that somewhere?

That's right... in the latest (old version) 1x of the IDE, it's an option turned on via the preferences page, and it uses the '-' and '+' character symbols to do the code folding. I don't mind the later style at all.

Cheers

Thanks Ron, have downloaded it for both Linux and Windows... Linux AppImage working OK, Windows version will not even launch... looks like they have broken it again 🙂

The Linux version seems fine, though I am still experiencing some freezing on my Windows machine, but I think that's just my machine, as I've screwed around with it a lot lately 🙂  I'll test the latest version in a Windows 8.1 VM and see how that goes, and let you know.

Still haven't finished building my new machine yet... hopefully this week!

Cheers
