Working with Esenthel 2.0 editor ?
Hello Esenthel,

I double click the Esenthel64.exe and Esenthel Editor 2.0 opens up.
I hover mouse over the Main file under Apps->01-Start->1-Basic App ( located in the left side bar ) and the source code shows up on the right side of the window very nicely. But as soon as I remove my mouse from the Main file - the source code vanishes even though the Main file remains selected !

I want the source code to show up devoid of the mouse pointer location as long as the corresponding Main file remains selected ( hi-lighted in blue ). How do I achieve this ? Otherwise how am I going to edit the code or write new code ?

EDIT : I just found out I will have to double click the Main file to get it hi-lighted in red and the file remains open for editing on the right pane!
Should have guessed on first hand ..... must be an in-genuine Russian technique that Microsoft is not aware of !

Secondly, how do I customize the font used, size and color of the source code displayed ? The maximum font size allowed in 16 only. I want to
customize the font more to my need that gives me a pleasant viewing while coding in the editor. I know I can open the code in my Visual Studio Express Editor and edit the code from there too. But I just want to do it all from within the Esenthel edior.

As for the code hinting and function definition that is popping up - all feels like Heaven !

Thanks,

Hi,

On what kind of display size (inch) and resolution are you working that font size 16 is not enough?

Approximately how big would you need it?

Hi,

I am using an entry level PHILIPS LED HD display of screen size 21.5 inches ( diagonally ) with maximum screen resolution support of 1920 X 1080 ( which is what the display is set to currently ).

I think one more step - 18 would have got me satisfied. I do not know for sure - may be it will be bigger than I want. I am not sure since it all depends on the font type. I find "Consolas" in some editor good, while in others "Times Roman". I wish there was normal font changing option found in other code editors - size, bold/italic, font-name etc.

So, yes no big issue.

If it is not a problem for you ( lot of late night or day coding ) you may give more option to customize the font. But again I am not pressing you for this right now.

Again - Congratulation for being able to create such an awesome product and also delivering it at a reasonable price to us - the indies . smile

Thanks,

Thank you for the feedback,

That's no problem to add one step bigger font, I'll do this for next release.

Adding more options for font configuration would take a bit too much time so for the moment I won't be doing this.
