Currently I see no benefit that justifies them, the interface will get more checkboxes, which will be too many for my taste (And I like GUIs!). Handling will get worse too. Please work with the current version if you feel after a month that you still miss it, we'll have to find a way to make it work smoothly. A combobox is no option for instance, radio buttons neither. But maybe you have an idea. There are many states that should be covered:
Great great great. Will you support seperate checkboxes in the future or do you dislike the idea?
Of cause you could combine the hotstuff to one item.
Of if you have individual checkboxes for each it will decrease to three CheckBoxes:
I compressed two of them in a single checkbox. And I rarely use them. Please see for yourself how often you use such a feature. Searching is much faster then togglingthrough the checkbox.
Methods to get the text from window is slow and not reliable. At least that is what has been said and I couldn't prove it wrong. Rajat came up with the idea to just get it from disc. And since it is fast it doesn't matter to my any more. But if you know a better solution, post a prototype.
I have a couple of questions. You parse the file from disk because its hard to get the text directly from the editor? Is that right? What exactly is the problem here? Editors behave to different to find a solution that works on all?
