#230 SET PREFIX ON LEFT 10 1 affects all files in ring

Next Release

It should only affect the file it's issued against, just like

The second paragraph in the pdf for SET PREFIX is confusing. I *think* that the second and third sentences were intended to be in their own paragraph, and refer to the first three forms of the command, which would make more sense.

    Fixed in next release. Surprised this bug has not been found before. I'm sure it's been around for a long time.

    Not sure what the problem is with the documentation. Please see the attched screen shot from the latest documentation and confirm if this is the same as you have.

    Yes, the text is the same. but there are some spelling errors:
    c/were/where line 2
    c/displyed/displayed line 4

    The problem I have with the doc is the implied paragraph, indicated by the short preceding line. That's not much of a visual clue, although it saves screen space and paper. Perhaps you could indent a new paragraph a little?

    It's my perception that there are global settings with nthe and local (i.e., file specific settings). In an edit ring, my prefix setting "command set prefix on left 9 1" is the same for all files. For me, having to set all the files in a ring with this prefix setting would be a pain. I have always thought that this setting is working as it should.

    George: Issued from profile it behaves as you want. Issued from the
    command line it should only affect that file, so says the doc.

    I understand the difference now and have tested it (Linux) and it works as you say... command set prefix on left 11 2 affects just one file and NOT the rest of the files.
