Thanks for the tip. All working now, and I'll read the help some more to learn about the other mode preferences.SEDev wrote: To permanently allow a mode to call external tools you'll need to change its permission in the ModeLock file. To do this click Ctrl-Select (left mouse button) on StrongED's iconbar icon, this will load the ModeLock file. Then find the line for the mode you want to alter, then change 'N' to 'Y' for the actions you want to allow.
Apart from reading the manual, another good way to get familiar with StrongED (and other RISC OS apps) is to use interactive help. Run Help from the Apps folder on the iconbar, then hover the pointer over things you want to know about. For example, most icons on StrongED's toolbar support IA help.skywalker wrote:Thanks for the tip. All working now, and I'll read the help some more to learn about the other mode preferences.
Thanks for the suggestion. Problem is that it's a standard RO error window and earlier versions of RO don't allow you to alter the number of buttons, or even the text on the buttons. As StrongED still supports those versions what can be done is limited, the only viable option is probably to use a custom window.skywalker wrote:IMHO, I would be nice to have the dialog that pops up offering to allow temporary permission for "Perform" (or other operation) also have a button or checkbox to "Permanently grant this permission", presumably with appropriate caveats.
Thanks, but I'm not THE developer. StrongED was started by Guttorm Vik in 1989(!) as StrongED I. In 1991 Guttorm decided that there were too many limitations in StrongED I and began work on StrongED II. Guttorm left the RISC OS scene in 1999, and I took up StrongED development in late 2000 and I'm still on the job.skywalker wrote:Assuming SEDev means you're the developer, thanks for a great editor.
Nice work! I've used StrongED pretty much every day since taking to RISC OS, and so far, haven't managed to crash it once. Given my record with crashing things, this is quite an achievementSEDev wrote:Thanks, but I'm not THE developer. StrongED was started by Guttorm Vik in 1989(!) as StrongED I.

Yes, this is a known issue (not really a bug I think, the code seems to be designed that way) and it's always worked like that. It's something I've been meaning to look at for a long time but never get round to it.nr. wrote:As an example, I was wandering through some Firefox config files earlier, looking for all occurences of the string "cache". After a few hits (using the interactive search), every time I hit the 'next' button it started matching on "ca" rather than "cache". Is this a known bug? I could probably recreate it easily enough if it would help at all.
