I use tab pinning in my search panes for results I want to keep around for a while. I know you can specify to open the search in a new tab on the search screen but I never remember to do that. Pinning it just makes it safer.

When you need tab always opened, then pin it.
Column mode, is special mode of selection. Basicaly you can select as single line mode, for example press Shift and arrows down and up. In column mode you can select rectangle of code.

Hey, that's what I always wanted (it was so comfortable to press Alt-C and use it in UltraEdit) ! Great, how do I switch to the column mode ?

Thank's ! Shouldn't the mode be also changed when clicking on "Insert/Column" in the buttom tab ? So that those who don't like to memorize shortcuts will be able to simply click it.

Great feature, again.

+1 for clicking on status bar.

hi, thanks for the reply. just want to clarify my question : i understanding pinning the windows, but i dont understand pinning an editor tab. can you give an example where pinning an editor tab shows different behavior than if its not pinned?

In Options->Editor there is a "Tab Limit" setting, by default 10 tabs.

Normally when you open and close files in the editor, it will recycle less recently used files/tabs to keep the limit of open files to 10. Consequently it might close a file you were particularly interested in and didn't actually want to close.

If you pin that tab, it won't be recycled and will stay open.

I think that's right.

Is that what you meant?
