    Hi, I've noticed that the more experienced programers tend to "clean-up" the IDE screen with a bunch of #region's...
    I've tryed to do that, but it only get the #Region and #End Region strings highlighted in red...
    And I do can collapse the code..
    SO ....the ability to define Regions from the IDE menu, would be of great help...
    Yes I known we can already colpase the subs...
    But imagine I have a prog with a few dozen subs, and could reduce them to only 3 or 4 colapsable Regions...
    that would tidy up my IDE's screen...

    I'm afraid that I don't understand the problem. Why can't you do that with #Region and #End Region? :confused:

    it would just be easier to use, thats all...
    just like the Comment feature...
    define a piece of code, select region and that all...

    Just use:

    #Region <Region Name> 'Optional comment text
    Sub FirstSub
    End Sub

    Sub SecondSub
    End Sub
    #End Region
    The next time you open your code in the IDE the region will be collapsed as default. You are remembering to name the region, aren't you?
    The region may be collapsed manually as soon as it is created.

    What I was sugesting was to be able to do it from one of the IDE's menu, just like the Block Commenting feature...

    Another related feature would be that the subs that were colapsed( not by #Region but by b4ppc) at exit time, would be colapsed at load time...
    At the moment ALL subs apear expanded at load time...
