Virtual Space simulation

  • Hello,

    I'm proud (blush :)) to announce my attempt to add virtual spaces.
    this is, what I (personally) don't like from the first time,
    that the cursor is restricted to line endings.
    if you move up or down, it jumps every time, a line is shorter.
    Also cursor right behavior, I don't like.

    I nowhere found anything usable to bypass this, so
    I tried to find a solution myself.

    I integrated in the Keyboard Macros plugin the
    "virtual space".
    Best to try this on a testfile before.

    If someone have a better solution (could be easily the case),
    or would make that completly different, I would be interested
    in change this.
    (it was complicated enough :) and it's not perfect)

    • There were some problems.

      Although, it is far away from perfect, I
      updated the file.
      (Added cursor left behavior and Home key; overwrote
      OnModified)

    • This looks rather neat, but should it be its own plugin?
      Otherwise people using keyboard macros will end up with  the experimental version if they upgrade.  Perhaps
      virtualspaces-0.0.0?

      With the new download bit, experimental versions need to be named differently, or they will be picked up as the latest version of the plugin.

       
    • Oops.  Brain fart.
      Its on your site.  My bad.

      Uh... Did I mention this looks really cool?

      Cheers,
      Dan

       
    • Oh thanks.

      Unfortunatly, again and again, problems appear.

      Maybe my approach is not so good, as I thought
      at first.

      I renamed it to VirtualSpaces.py for a better distinction,
      though it is Keyboard macros.
