    The new IDE really looks great!

    I find it useful to divide projects into multiple source files. Since B4P will not open .txt files I'm forced to keep files open in multiple instances of Notepad, to use an MDI programmer's editor, or use VS.

    So my wish is for code files to end in something other than .txt (which seems like a dangerous thing to call an important source file) and for B4P to support multiple files on a tabbed interface. It would be nice if the 'compile' function would autosave all the open files too.

    Thanks for considering it.

    Hi Erel, another way of achieving something similar would be to support "regions" that are collapsible, like in visual studio.


    #Region "frmMenu"

    subs for the menu form go here

    #End Region

    The region then has a little [-] beside it, and clicking on it will hide all of the code in that region.

    Oops, Sorry Erel. Cool though! Now I will use it :)
