    On Project Export, can we get "Include Include Files that are not part of the workspace" just like we already have "include module files that are not part of the workspace"?

    I've lost track of the number of times I forgot to add an include file to the workspace, exported, sent the file to someone, and then they couldn't compile.

    I think if you'd add this feature you'd need to guide NS during the process so it would know which directory to land the wayward files. But, This would be a nice feature!

    Very much THIS ^^^^^^

    Being able to set custom folds would be a huge productivity boost.

    You can't really do Custom Folds, but you can fake it with multiple Define sections. My code usually has several define_constant, several define_variable, several define_start, and several define_event sections, each with comments after them. I added a keyboard shortcut to "Collapse All Fold Levels", and it shrinks everything down so I can see all of my define sections, you can still see the comments after them, and you can expand the section you care about.

    How is it any different the the modules? I have all of my modules in the default modules directory and all of my includes in the default includes directory. When I export a project without loading the modules into the workspace, it finds them and extracts just fine, why wouldn't it be able to do the same thing with includes?

    I suppose if you have a bunch of includes with the same name that are all different files that are in different folders that you're calling it could be a problem. Is that how other people set things up? Or am I missing something obvious?

    Program send lists.

    Make it easier to create/add/edit program lists to multiple controllers. We have 70 systems with common code and 5 different complied hardware versions. The latest version of Netlinx Studio does not work with the previous versions of lists. I have to build a new list.

    There used to be a function in the old Axcess days where you could push a physical button and you could hit CTL F (from memory) in the editor to jump to that routine in your code.

    It would be very handy to be able to jump to the routine like this, and I'd buy someone a rum for implementing it.

    Maybe you could click the little push status window with the button press in it at the bottom of studio? Maybe click an entry in the 'button history' and it could jump?

    If it is there, I'll just smile 'n' wave at the comments I get, coz I just can't see it anywhere!

    (Oh, and if it is related to >>Edit>>Push Messages>Find Push, that is cumbersome to use, and does not work at all for me - it never finds anything)

    I've tried searching first but didn't have any luck. I would love to disable the new WAIT folding. I like to fold the events so I don' t have to scroll so much, but the WAIT not folding inside the events is driving me insane. Maybe at least fix it so that the WAIT will disappear into the EVENT: fold, like the behavior of PUSH: or HOLD:?

    Addendum: Plus when you do collapse a WAIT, it collapses all the way to the next WAIT, hiding any EVENT between the two. It seems like the hierarchy of fold levels is just reversed?

    I agree completely. I use code folding constantly and the inability to fold waits is a pain in the ass

    I totally agree. The current method is uncomfortable.

    I believe the next release of NS will have this fixed. (crosses fingers)

    Anyone find that the current version of Netlinx Studio is really slow to load?

    Which OS are you on?

    It's slow for me, but that's because the laptop I have now is a real bottom-feeder. At $OLD_JOB it was lickety-split because they gave us laptops that could handle the bloatware from Crestr0n. If a laptop is reasonably usable for Those Other Guys, it will be blazing fast for us. In my experience.
