Editor tab on Options dialog
This tab of the Options dialog displays options associated
Mode: the current comtab used in the system. See
Reindenter: choose the style in which Lisp code is rearranged
when Edit | Reindent is clicked. The choices are
Reindent and Pretty Print. Reindent simply
reindents each line appropriately while Pretty Print may move
things from one line to another to produce a more pleasing final
result (just as the function pprint does). See pretty-printer.
Comment Indent: the indentation of comments when the comment
gesture, Control-;, in the host and emacs comtabs, which inserts a
semi-colon after the number of spaces specified by this value. See
String Search Padding: the number of additional lines of text
to scroll into view for context around a string match. See
Conserve indentation: if checked, the conserve-indentation property will
be true. If unchecked, it will be
nil. This property controls indentation of Lisp
code in Editor buffers.
Incremental Search: sets the value of the incremental-search
configuration property. If true (checked), emacs-like text searching
in text windows is used, displaying a small window (like the emacs
minibuffer). As you type characters, they appear in the small window
and corresponding characters in the text window are highlighted. If
false (unchecked), searching is done with a Find dialog.
Find Again After Replace: if checked, whenever the user does a
replace operation in the in-lisp editor, the cursor will immediately
be moved to the next occurrence of the find string (if there is one).
Open Files in Gnu Emacs: If checked and the Emacs-Lisp interface is
running, files will be opened in an Emacs buffer rather than in the
Editor Workbook. See also open-files-in-gnu-emacs.
Handle Multiple Package In Buffer: if checked, then commands
such as Tools | Incremental Compile will
read source code in the correct package even when the editor buffer
contains multiple in-package
forms for different packages. This takes somewhat more
time. See handle-multiple-packages-in-buffer.
Parenthesis Matching: unless :off is selected, as you type a
closing parenthesis, the corresponding open parenthesis is indicated
in the manner chosen. Clicking on the Color bar displays a color
choice dialog allowing you to specify the color of the indicator.
