A useful tip with the debugger..

Postby DazaKiwi » Sun Feb 12, 2017 12:39 am

I just stumbled onto something you can do wit the debugger that perhaps is already known by others but thought to mentioned it as well.

You can click inside the debugger results and add more spaces between the output as well as text, which the text is a much larger font and green (if you type on a completely blank line) which suggests this was a feature already that was hidden away..?

This makes it handy when you are problem solving an issue and want to mark on the output list a specific output to compare to new changes made. Would be cool if you could highlight text in different colour. But still this is handy and also being able to use the selection and delete tools you normally would in an editor to trim away some of the output you don't want to clutter up the output window making it easier on the eyes.

I posted on the enhancements page a suggestion to be able to highlight text in different colours and also export the output. Saabie replied to this regarding wanting to be able to make a copy or print out an output..

saabie: The workaround for this is to click at the start of the debug text, shift click at the end to highlight the whole text and press Ctrl/C.
Then you can paste it into an rtf or doc file and do what you like with it.


Just thought to pass it on here as well.
