<DIV> When you split the view vertically, jEdit doesn't seem to pick a good place to center both views. In fact, I believe it just takes the top half of the screen in the current view and centers the new views on that. The problem is this is almost never what I really want and the result is that very often the current line I'm editing is now no longer shown on the screen, making me have to scroll at least one view back to where I was.</DIV>
<DIV> So, I was wondering if this could be a bit more intelligent and do the following (by the way, this is what emacs does, and I like it a lot):</DIV>
<DIV>1. If the cursor position is off the screen and above the current view of the buffer, keep the functionality the same, i.e. center both views on the top of this view.</DIV>
<DIV>2. If the cursor position is off the screen and below the current view of the buffer, do the opposite, i.e. center both views on the bottom of this view.</DIV>
<DIV>3. And most importantly, if the cursor position is on the screen, center the new views on this cursor position.</DIV>
<DIV> Any chance of this getting in? Anyone agree, disagree?<BR><BR>Ken Wootton </DIV>fuzzyslug@...
