Useful Html Pad tricks or features

Postby MaxD » Tue Oct 30, 2007 8:45 pm

I have an admission to make. I haven't explored all the features and functions of the program. I tend to type away and refer to books as guides. Which trick or feature is most useful to you when using the editor, making your job easier :?:

you might not know these:

* middle-click tab to close it
* shift+click Image, Link, Line or other HTML toolbar button to insert these without invoking dialog windows
* you can customize right-click menu, put anything you like there
* you can modify/update the wey syntax is colored (the logics), but it takes time and experience

there are hunderds of tiny little things that just make it a bit better, but it is hard to list them all...

if you hold down the 'alt' key, you can make vertical selections.

Have had a browse and will aim to load the 'snippets' function with lots of code I've done or found.

A handy function I've found though is the 'Edit box properties' feature. Click in the CSS for a <div> and edit with a rather useful pictorial guide to box properties above.
