XML Namespaces and XSD Code Completion / Autocomplete

Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 years ago in General • updated 6 years ago 3

Scenario

Right now I am learning XML and trying to create a schema for Balsamiq (unofficial schema for my workflow), but I have to fire up VS 2012 RTM on my laptop and I need to constantly flip between a schema that works with intellisense and one that still has issues, not to mention having a tutorial page open to learn the specs.  As I have described, you can imagine I have limited visibility of either schema, which means I need to constantly adjust the size of the window panes.  This has another problem, there is no scrolling synch (unlike Word 2007-2013), which makes it extremely difficult to spot differences.


Why do I still use this method?

Intellisense is the reason, being allowed to reference known Schemas makes my job a little easier.


Suggestion

1.  Add ability to reference Schemas, so that autocomplete works with XML and other XML related languages (XAML, YAML, XSL, XSLT, etc).

2.  Add ability to store custom Schemas and reference them with other Schemas.

3.  Implement a synchronized scrolling feature that allows users to spot differences between 2 documents (similar to the Notepad++ diff plugin or Word 2010 if you want to wait to add diff).

Open files directly over sftp with a live sftp browser. No syncing entire dirs!

I don't care if a temp file is copied to my ipad as long as that is invisible to me. I just want to open a single file and see its *remote* path and save it to its remote path.

Compile and Run

Cameron Mitchell 5 years ago in General 0

If you could add the ability to compile and run code that would be awesome. That is the only thing holding this app back. I'm sure Apple makes this difficult if not impossible so if it isn't possible then thats okay. Love the app!

Ability to move files on an FTP server from one directory to another

Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago in General • updated by 5 years ago 1

Currently, you can't move files on the server directly, but you can download files locally and then upload them to another directory. Add the ability to move files directly on the server without a download.

Gesture cursor movement

György Mérei 6 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 years ago 4
It would be very useful if we can move the cursor with gestures in the text area. Now the whole text area is scrolling, but it would be enough if only the right side trigger the scrolling and the remaining area can be used for moving the cursor in 4 directions.
Maybe a "to top", "to bottom" feature can be helpful too to work with long texts.
