First off, this is a really great program…Thank you!

I have 2 questions regarding functionality.

1. The pipe character (|) used in clips positions the cursor to that point in the code. I have created a ‘library’ of my commonly used code clips in PL/SQL but unfortunately, in SQL and PL/SQL 2 pipe characters (||) in the code means concatinate. When I paste my code into PN, it is interpreted as ‘place the cursor here’ and it overwrites the first pipe for the concatination. Is there a way to change this character to something else for cursor placement?

2. I spend most of my time developing in PL/SQL and the code folding does not work when a document is opened as PL/SQL or SQL. If however, I leave my code in the editor and select a different language, the code folding turns on. Then I can re-select PL/SQL as the language and code folding works. Is there a setup somewhere that I can make code folding work without having to do this?

Many Thanks for this wonderful program.

Hmm, good point about the pipe for caret placement – I’m amazed this hasn’t come up before now! I’ll have a think about some easy way to delimit them. There’s probably a better syntax for that.

It sounds like the SQL scheme may just need folding enabled – I’ll look into it.
