    I've replaced my V 4.xx version of B4A so I am unable to go back and check - but weren't the Sub Routines separated by a light grey line? It helped me to instinctively understand my code separation ....
    Have we lost that? Is there some way to turn it back on?
    I also no longer see the vertical light grey grid that allowed me to match up beginning and ends of If ... Then statements and other conditionals.

    Unfortunately indeed. I don't buy the arguments in that thread that you "Should" put spaces between subs - a line is much more definitive - and I use spaces within subs during development. Now I can't tell which spaces are which ... interesting that we can't have a full line, yet we have the tiny tiny "stub" on the left hand side.

    I DO like the Click on the "If" to show the corresponding "else/end if". With that I can live without the vertical lines.
    Many years ago I worked with a modifiable IDE (I think for Quicksilver) and set it up so when you typed in an "If" the corresponding "End If" was automatically inserted a few lines lower. Ditto for all types of loops. Was a pleasure to work with - and I've never seen it done anywhere else :)

    Visual Studio does this...

    I built an addin for VB4+ that did all kinds of auto completion such as end if (plus the "then"), etc. Funny thing is I eventually converted the addin to Delphi so it was a VB addin built in Delphi ;)
