LineMover 1.1 does not work

I have mapped the actions to Ctrl-Shift-Up/Down since ages. With the
latest update it stopped working: no reaction, when pressing
Ctrl-Shift-Up/Down, although still mapped without conflicts. Do others
also have this problem?

Tom,

Oops !

I'm afraid it's caused by
- my renaming the actions, and
plus
- IDEA being silent about orphans shortcut mappings.

I did so for naming consistency when I added the 2 news actions, and
their shortcuts, Alt-Shift-Ctrl I/K,
BUT I didn't think about the annoying result.

Sorry.

I'm going to fix this now - reuse the old names, so if you can wait a
little..

Could you please add these actions to a menu, too? Thanks in advance for
this nice little tool. It's hard without it - like without Rearranger or
other plugins I have installed :)

Should I, or Should I NOT?
Please vote.


Tom,

I was about to post the fix, but I'll wait a little.

What do people think about adding a new entry in the Edit Menu, with the
4 line mover actions ?

Example:

Menu:
Edit
LineMover
Up
Down
Top
Bottom

NO.


reason:
- the menu is already bloated,
and
- these are keyboard only actions.

If you mind cluttering the Edit menu with 4 new actions (BTW, I just
knew Move Up/Down), you can create a submenu "Move Line(s)" in the Edit
menu, containing your 4 actions.

I don't understand this. Why shouldn't they work from the menu (if
placed there)?

BTW, putting them into the menu makes the user able to find them without
reading an extra documentation, that they are mapped by default to
Xxx+Yyy/zzz.

They would, of could, but that wouldn't be an efficient to use them, so
there must be another reason to bloat the menu...

I agree. It makes me think about making 2 versions: 1 silent, and 1 that
install itself in the Edit Menu.
But then, I will bloat the plugin repository :(

So have the "Put in Edit menu" feature configurable

But then I would bloat the config dialog, just to add 1 checkbox !? :(



And btw, there is still talk about having this feature being implemente
into standard IDEA. This would allow adding a small checkbox somewhere
in an official dialog.

Yeah, I guess you're right.

Hey, may be IDEA menus should behave like MS Office ('collapse' unused
menu items over time).

Is that something Linux using people are used to as well?

NO! This is a terrible GUI blooper, because the visual content of the
menus change, which confuse the user ("I know, somewhere in the left
most menu, there was menu item Xxx, but I cannot find it any more.").

I say go for it, it a lot more useful than the "Delete" action in the
edit menu. I like the name "Move Line(s)" for the submenu better than
"LineMover" though.

+1 for the documentation aspect

+/-0 for adding anything to the edit menu, I don't use it anyway. I'd also
prefer a submenu over 4 new entries though.

+0.5 The edit menu is not that cluttered.

Doesn't much matter. The line moving functionality was just announced as implemented in-product in build 3201. Congratulations, LineMover is now legacy.

It's funny, but I'm a little sad my request was eventually implemented,
after 29 months!!
All good stories have an end...



To those who may find it useful, the lates build still offers 2 "unique"
actions

Move selected text to Bottom of file
Move selected text to Top of file

I use them to clear my plain text todo files, à-la double Bubble-sort
way: what's important goes up, what's less important goes down. I wonder
if other people would find this useful. I'll maintain it for myself,
anyway..
