Readability is improved with proportional fonts. Source is smaller?! My favourite texteditor was CygnusEd on Amiga. It was possible to customize tab positions like with Winword.

I'll take a closer look to the source....

Funny, I think readability is better with fixed length fonts ! In programming editors I always choose fonts like Courrier New (it's my current choice in jaPBe).

With fixed tabpositions there are no problems using proportional fonts and readability is improved, because of more letters on one line.

Normally I use a tab length of 8 spaces and for me it's easier to delete one tab instead of deleting 8 spaces while editing. Moving through the source using cursor keys is also faster.

I like fixed length fonts, too. I think Lucida Console is my favorite.

Thanks and keep up the good work with jaPBe!

Hi,

I just finished some research into different fixed length fonts and posted a screenshot comparing 18 of them. You can see it over at:

http://www.donationcoder.com/Forums/bb/index.php?topic=2499.0

Lots of useful utilities can be found at that site as well.

Your welcome. Thanks for the kind words. I added a ClearType version of the comparison as well. It can make a big difference!

you added the autoindent for "EndWith" but you forgot to add "With" ;)

try strg+a;strg+tab for this one and you'll see the bug:
Code:
If #True
  With bla\
  a = 0
  b = 0
EndWith
EndIf

pls fix
