Is there anyway to get dark theme?

If the native UI of the operating system has a dark theme then Coedit
will have a dark theme too. You just have to adjust the highlighter
attributes, like here:


It'd be nice if there was a pre-defined set of dark highlighter attributes that could just be selected and then used out-of-the-box or as a starting point. In general, manually adjusting editor themes can get to be a pain, especially when the color settings are mixed in with the rest of the settings.

Seems like a really nice editor though, I just tried it for the first time right now. I'd been having a hard time finding an editor I really like since switching my main dev machine to Linux (previously had been a die-hard Programmer's Notepad 2 user, but it has some issues under wine, and of course it doesn't do DCD). Hopefully this one will fit the bill, looks nice so far.

Few newbie questions:

- In other editors, I tend to rely very heavily on "Ctrl-Tab" to switch between opened files (in most-recently-used order - analogous to Alt-Tab in many desktop environments). Is there an entry for that in "Options"->"Shortcuts"->"Code editor" so I can set that up? I didn't spot one at a glance, but I could've easily overlooked it.

- Regarding "tab vs space" indents, the boolean options eoSpacesToTabs, eoTabsToSpaces, and eoTabIndent seem key, but I'm a little unclear on exactly how they work, and the "options1"/"options2" in general don't appear to be documented (understandable, given how many there are, which is nice though, I like configurability. Adjusting software to fit people is much better than adjusting people to fit software, and "one-size-fits-all" only ever works for hats :) ).

- Mostly wishful thinking but I don't suppose there are any plans for elastic tabstops, are there?

- Not an objection really (and I'm sure this has been asked before, so pardon that), but I'm curious why it's written in Pascal rather than D. Lack of good-enough GUI libs for D? Any plans to port to D down the road? It'd likely be easier to get contributors if it were in D, but I imagine you probably already figured that. Not trying to push for porting of course, I'm just curious.

- I am getting a little bit a weird behavior in a couple places (This is on Debian x64, KDE4, FWIW):

When I type 'm' in the editor (without Shift), I get a newline instead of an 'm'. The other letters appear to work fine.

Also, in the options editor and the search/replace text box (maybe other places as well?), anything I type gets doubled. For example, if I try to type in a value of "20", I get "2200". "if" becomes "iiff". Backspace works fine, so I can easily erase the extra characters, but something seems to have gone weird there.

And the "Find" button doesn't appear to successfully find things even when they are there. "Find All" works though.

- It'd be nice if there was a way (if there isn't already?) to set up Ctrl-F (or something) to automatically jump to and select the text in the "Search" entry box.
