Adam Van den HovenSubject: More Feature Requests
Author: Adam Van den Hoven

There are two things that I find I am CONSTANTLY doing by hand that SS should be able to handle.

Normally when I write I often get extra carriage returns or the tabs that, when I hit the indent button don't necessarily go away. I always end up copying the text into Word, replace ^p with a space, replace ^t with spaces and normalize all the spaces and then replace > < with ><. Then I copy it back into SS and hit the indent button. Now everything looks nice.

It would be nice if SS could do that on its own.

I also spend a lot of time doing my own indenting. Often if I'm giving a presentation (or if we're doing a code review, or writing printed documentation) I end up manually indenting the attributes of some tags (typically only those which are longer than one line). Having the option to indent attributes would be very useful. General control over indenting (whether or not to indent and wrap text, how to indent comments, etc) would be useful.

It would also be nice to have alternate syntax highlighting for grey scale printing.

This behavior is by design: when indenting an element, we keep the carriage
return, to allow the user to highlight different sections of the document
(e.g. if you indent a document such as

{container}
{node/}

{node/}

(!-- now some items -->

{item/}

{item/}
{/container}

you will get the same document, instead of

{container}
{node/}
{node/}
(!-- now some items -->
{item/}
{item/}
{/container}

)

Following your comment, we will add an option to enable/disable this behavior.

Noted.

Thanks for your feedback
