A feature similar to MS Word that would allow you to split your editor window in two so you can edit more that one part of the script at the same time.
An example would be the ability to edit line 500 while still referencing line 24 in a split window.76 votes
snippets are ok, but what really would make me use this product is the addition of code insight. currently using eclipse with the cfeclipse plugin and it's very easy to use type in cfquery then hit the space bar and have a list of the attributes that are for that tag be displayed and selectable. saves me tons of typing and having to remember all those cryptic snippet commands.13 votes
An awesome feature IMO will consit of a command line interface like in Emacs/Vim.
In this command line you could invoke actions on file, project, view, etc: like open file, open a project, run the current file, spli the current view, hide/show the project pane , ...
This command line could also have filename, project key word or actions completion ...
It's very handy to use the keyboard rathet than the mouse.
All power texteditor have this so ... E must have one !3 votes
Currently I have to press escape to show auto-completion options. This is a highly repetitive (and a problem as a sufferer of RSI) since I potentially want to auto-complete every word I type.
My suggestion is for the auto-completion list box to appear automatically whenever there is one or more possible completions after typing the first character of a word, as it is done in Visual Studio.98 votes

This can be done, but it’s confusing as you have to open the search panel with “CTRL-SHIFT-F” instead of just “CTRL-F”. Thinking about a better UI for this…
Whenever developing at home on my Mac I'm using TextMate & CSSEdit, and when going back to my work (Windows) environment E TextEditor fills 80% of my needs nicely.
The thing I do *really* miss is the grouping of CSS styles as per CSSEdit. To have this in e would be amazing!

Could be an option of course :-)33 votes
I really like the idea of the Minimap tool in Sublime Text (http://www.sublimetext.com/). Could the Symbols feature in E be extended somehow to have a Document Map view that could highlight the detected symbols, as well as serving as an overall visual of the text document?29 votes
1. Standard behaviour for END is to jump to the end of a line, but if that line is wrapped, then the caret jumps to the end of the visual line that I'm on, not to the end of the actual line, which is what E does.
2. On a single line with following tabs/spaces, pressing END key should jump to the end of the visual line too, not to the end of whitespace, just like he HOME key does.28 votes
I love working remotely, but I wish I could save a local copy at the same time so I don't have to download the entire project each time.25 votes

cygwin is great but It's a bit slow on windows, and feels like an uninvited guest in this environment. it would be great to have E editor working directly with windows shell. if ruby, python or any other scripting languages are needed they could be installed directly on windows.
I know, technically, this might not be possible due to E architecture but if you are also pissed off with cygwin part of E you can show it by voting for this feature request!112 votes
When you say you would like “E without Cygwin”, do you mean you would like the option to remove Cygwin and/or prevent it from installing entirely, thus accepting the fact that most, if not all, of the Bundle Commands will cease to work? Or do you mean you would like all of the Bundle Commands that are provided with E to work in Windows Native mode, thus completely negating the need for Cygwin?
Given that most, if not all, of the Bundles are a product of the Textmate community, rather than the TextMate developer, I think it is unrealistic to expect the one and only E developer, i.e., Alexander, to port them all. Additionally, who would then port any subsequent updates to the TextMate bundles? Really, it should be up to the E community to port any Bundles it feels could benefit from being “Windows Native”.

Provide a switch (like the sticky switch) to only refresh/reload the Web Preview when a file is saved. This is really useful when editing remote files on a hosted server over a slow network connection.7 votes
which has all the projects setting embedded into project file
Can you be more specific? How would you like such a feature to behave, exactly? Project settings are already embedded into a .eprj file in the project root.
Many people have already suggested they would like a Linux version of E. Alexander has stated that it is something he would eventually like to do. Add your support and/or comments for the idea here.422 votes
See the forum for details/help regarding building on Linux:
Apparently, you can get E working on Linux by using CrossOver:
