2018-03-10 Thread Brian Christiansen
This is borderline a feature request… but I'm first curious if other people are seeing this and not just me. Or maybe I'm the only person using BBEdit that does this? I'm often working in Markdown files that are the backend of web systems. The most well known example of this set up would be

My apologies, Marc. I began to read it and never finished. I jumped to conclusions. Thanks for your help. On Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 11:25:53 AM UTC-5, Marc Wilson wrote: > > Because you didn't read the KB article I linked, I will summarize. > Specify the complete path to the menu

Thanks, Lee, but that’s not a “compact/terse list”. Nonetheless, following your hint, I decided to extract the espresso (using BBEdit as my espresso machine, of course) and here it is. To suit your taste(s), you can add your preferred amount of textured milk to produce a macchiato, a

2018-03-10 Thread Bill Kochman
Hello, When I click on the BBEdit app icon in the Dock to reveal the list of open docs, is there a way to force the items shown to always be listed alphabetically? I usually have about three dozen BBEdit docs open and minimized in the Dock at any one time, so having their titles all mixed up

Rich, Nice, BUT the file opens in a new window. How about just “activating” it within the Project’s “Currently Open Documents”? I appreciate discovering all of these no-so-obvious jewels. Thanks. Alfredo > On Mar 10, 2018, at 9:34 AM, Rich Siegel wrote: > > On 3/6/18
