  1. ctrl-scroll wheel should control font size

    It'd be great if you could adjust the font size by holding down the control key & going up/down on the mouse scroll wheel (like browsers do).

    • Open multiple Dirs as multiple Projects

      At the moment E-editor enable open dir as project. It would be good that it enable open multiple dirs as multiple projects

      • Delay beginning search until user stops typing

        Currently you are slowed down in typing into the search box by it trying to find the incomplete string you know will have too many hits. ( you will notice this on a big document)

          • TextMate Find Next Behavior

            I am really missing my TextMate-style find/next behavior. In TM (or any other text editor for the Mac), I can select some text, hit Command+E (which uses selected text for the next find), then hit Command+G to perform a FindNext, without even pulling up the find window. I find it extremely useful on the Mac and sorely missed here.

            • Instant loading of large files

              Support for loading large files instantly, just like Notepad++. Possibly with an additional popup asking the user if its okay to disable undo-history.

                    • Back (Prev) and Forward (Next) Line Positions

                      When navigating, allow positions Back and Forward. Just a list of line numbers!!! How many text editors DO NOT have this and I do way too much editing of text needing this.

                        • WS_FTP Integration

                          Integrate with WS_FTP, which appears to have a feature similar to Transmit's drop folders which they have named "hot drop".

                          I am a daily Texmate/Transmit user on Mac and need to be able to do my devel on windows at times. The Texmate/Transmit combination is extremely powerful, and I'd love to see a similar feature in E. Having integrated ftp/scp is interesting, but I'd much rather have integration with a proven external solution.

                            Allow multiple people to collaboratively edit a file in real time. This should behave in a similar fashion to SubEthaEdit.

                            • Make "disable history" an option - for when you work with very large text files (like db scripts)

                              Sometimes I use very large files (up to 60M) and after having done some deletes they become extremely slow. I suspect that they might become very fast if undo history can be disabled.

                              • Tab tooltip

                                I often have files with the same name but in different directories. It would be great if there was a tooltip with the path of the file when I hover over a tab. It could also be a 'status bar message' similar to hovering links and seeing the destination url in the status bar of a browser...

                                      • Redesign to something nicer and more minimalistic?

                                        I am in love with eText. I recently switched from my Macbrook pro to the powerhouse HP Envy laptop.

                                        This results in "just a little" loss of user experience (in my opinion).

                                        • 'Go to File' navigation should exclude excluded files and folders

                                          I have plenty of .SVN folders in my project that I've excluded using the project settings. However, the CONTROL-SHIFT-T 'Go to File...' navigation still finds files in my .SVN folders
