1. Columnar text insert/overwrite
In Notepad++ it is possible to make a zero-width columnar selection: the caret height increases, showing all the rows the columnar selection spans across. It is possible to either insert text on all lines at once, or overwrite existing text (if in overwrite mode).

It would be nice for AkelPad to support the same. I know it is possible to use columnar paste to achieve something similar, but it is much faster to edit column-based data using the above method.

Currently it is necessary to make at least 1 character wide columnar selections. Pressing "space" or "tab" indents the selection. However, typing a letter will only insert that letter on the first line of the selection and the columnar selection is lost. It would be more fast and intuitive to handle columnar text insertion (or overwriting) using the method employed by Notepad++.

2. Drag-and-drop tabs between 2 AkelPad instances
It would be nice to be able to drag-and-drop a tab from one AkelPad instance to another one.

3. Always on top behaviour
When AkelPad is set to "Always on top", the AkelUpdater should be set similarly so that it does not appear underneath the AkelPad window.

Yes? No? Maybe?

"Yes" would be nice, though (especially number 1). Very Happy

Thanks!

nbsp, usually Instructor does not answer suggestions unless such functionality planned for nearest release or in development. Sometimes if suggestion can be implemented using scripts or other plugins, Instructor(or smb else) will suggest it. If there is no answer - in most cases, it means Negative answer w/ or w/o reasons(from "technically impossible now" to "not worth to spend so much time").
