Seems they jumped the gun a little bit …

since been deleted… :slight_smile:

cant imagine WHY that would have happened :stuck_out_tongue:

the Bible says: do not sell new whine in Old Wineskins. Code-Folding? NetBeans since beginning of the 2000th. Gutter? Since the beginning of 2000th. That is 20 years ago XOJO inc. That’s not new, that’s the barely not reached by Xojo minimum standard. WOW.

a) What does “Seems they jumped the gun a little bit …” mean (for a non native english speaker)?
b) What has been written in that blog-post, please?

“Sie waren zu früh dran”, “Sie haben es überstürzt veröffentlicht”, “Sie sind zu früh gestartet”

Start doing something too soon, act too hastily. For example: The local weather bureau jumped the gun on predicting a storm; it didn’t happen for another two days. This expression alludes to starting a race before the starter’s gun has gone off, and supplants the earlier “beat the pistol”, which dates from about 1900.


jump the gun


  • start something too soon or early, especially without thinking
  • do something before it should be done
  • act before the proper time
  • begin something before preparations are complete

The origin of “jump the gun” refers to the starters pistol of a race.
Starting the race before the ref fires the starter pistol is “jumping the gun”

New version released.

It is not a bug, it is the “code folding line highlights are also now slightly less distracting” feature :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

They really need ask feedback before making this nonsense changes :roll_eyes:

I have a lot of difficulty with my eyes and am terrified of this change. I haven’t launched r2 yet in fear.

Moving the line number toggle blech !
I turn line #'s off when coding and maybe turn them on when debugging
Would be nice if the preference setting was the “default” when an editor opened but the toggle was still there and you could quickly turn it on and off

20 years (or so) without line numbering and counting.

For me, this is a simple information and I can live without it.

BTW: I can understand the need of that for some.

I, for one, welcome this change of having line numbers shown all the time.

That is what I wrote above.

An important use, but I do not see it often, is when sharing code.

Beside BASIC, what other development environment have lines numbers in the code ?

I’d just like the preference to be the default
And still to be able to toggle as I want
The best of both worlds

Pretty much every IDE I’ve ever worked with had the feature ‘show line numbers’ available, no matter the language
