OK this is sending me mad, someone, anyone please tell me ...
Is there such a thing as Emerald Editor?
It's basically vaporware to be honest. It was intended to replace Crimson Editor (CE), but when CE's source was opened, the main motivation for developing it was lost.
If there is, where is it?
There is some source code in the SVN repository, but I haven't messed with it much.
If not, then please, stop calling crimson editor emerald editor. Its embarrassing.
I personally don't, and I completely agree that we shouldn't call CE Emerald Editor (EE), but the fact that the CE download is hosted on the EE sourceforge page makes sourceforge say that you are downloading EE when in fact you are downloading CE. Also the download link at the top of emeraldeditor.com being a CE download is not a great idea. A separate download page with an explanation that EE is not available for download, but CE downloads are available would be nicer.
Crimson editor (and again, Im not sure if Im on the correct forum) doesent seem to have a place for reporting bugs.
Where is that?
I found an emerald editor bugs site ( http://bugs.emeraldeditor.com/
) but wasnt allowed to join.
I don't know why you couldn't join http://bugs.emeraldeditor.com/
. Most of the bugs there are for CE. You can see that in the "Product/Version" column. Also, some people post bugs at http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=168261&atid=846120
. If you can't join, you can post bugs in the CE development forum or the CE support forum if you need some help with the issue.
And since this is the buggiest editor iv ever used, I think a bugs report site is required.
It seems even the author got confused and abandonned the code.
OK now, the main bug I wanted to report (and yes Iv searched the forum - which I cant join - and doesnt work either) is: -
I deleted a file ages ago (from out side while it was loaded into the editor), and now every time I start the whatever-it-is editor it complains that the file doesnt exists.
That's strange. Normally for me, that message comes up once, since it tries to load the missing document in a tab, but fails. After you close the program and reopen it, it doesn't try to load it again. If yours is behaving differently, you could try deleting your cedt.wks file. This is in the same folder as the executable if you are running the portable version of one of our SVN builds or if you are running 3.70; it is probably in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Emerald Editor Community\Crimson Editor SVN### if you are running an installed version of an SVN build on Windows XP. I'm not sure where it goes in an installed version of an SVN build on Windows versions other than XP.
One more thing if you please: Who ever uses code indenting like crimson editor thinks I want? It actually moves my curly brackets even when explicitly placed.
It works well for me if I use the standard C style:
Just don't backspace before you type the end-brace. There was some discussion about this 2 years ago probably in the CE Development forum; I don't remember what the outcome of this discussion was though. You can turn this off though if you don't like it. Uncheck "Enable auto indent" in Tools->Preferences->General.
I see below about volunteering. I will if you make the thing work.
Maybe you can volunteer to help make the thing work.
