- faster highlighting

I like Kwrite because of the syntax highlighting and I use it for programming and latex. However for the latex application I miss an in-line spell check.

The current word-for-word spelling check feels like something from the stone-age.

I wonder whether it would be possible to move to the beginning or end of a sentence while editing a text, similarly to what Meta-A/Meta-E does in Emacs.

I love KWrite. I just can't express myself enough. It has a simple interface, its lite and its just cool.

doxygen highlighting is too much! is there any way I can disable it? (short of editing the kpart xml files?).

try ctr+shift+b to swith to block selection mode
ctr+shift+b again will leave the block selection mode (and therefore the block selections)

With this column selection, is it possible to do a block fill? Say you have a block selected and instead of just deleting the contents of this block, you can replace the data in the block or even create a new block and add data to that block?

as in:

$test array('one',
'two',
'three');

change to:
$test array('1' => 'one',
'2' => 'two',
'3' => 'three');


it would be nice to add the '1' => line as a block fill.

wondering if this functionality exists in any editor for kde.. kate, kedit, kwrite, quanta don't care which just would love the functionality.

I have a feature request: Would it be possible to add GnuPG encryption (perhaps as a plugin)? It would be great if I could open an encrypted text file, edit it, then save it with encryption so that I don't have the unencrypted version just sitting there the whole time.

hey, this sounds cool, maybe you could fill a bugreport (or make a plugin yourself...)

Hi,

can anyone explain me the difference between KWrite and KEdit? I have both but find hardly a difference...

Report

KEdit is deprecated. It's only
included because it still supports
BiDi for all those strange languages.
Anyone else shouldn't use it anymore.
As soon as KWrite has full support
for writing text from right to left
or upside down or whatever it
will be kicked from KDE.
