How do I use spell checking and TODO, FIXME comments

    I'm using Crossworks on OSX. The spell checking underlines incorreclty spelt words in red but offers no way to correct the spelling or options to add the word to the dictionary.

    Indeed; this is something that we could look at.  There is an option to turn spell checking off in the text editor options, if you find it distracting.

    Also I notice an option to define FIXME tags for code comments, but any comments including these tags are not includes in the 'Tasks' window. How can I display a list of these tags?

    They do not get populated in the tasks window; they should show up in the Code Outline window and when you use Ctrl+M.

    Thanks. How do I add task to the Tasks window?

    You can drag any item from a history window to the task window.  History windows are Recent Files, Recent Projects, Favorites, Bookmarks, Waypoints, Browser History, Latest News.  Drop them on any other history window and they get placed there, including the Tasks window.  Right click the task and edit it.

    Granted, you can't create tasks there.  Yet.

    Ah, yes. None of the OS X services show up in the contextual menu. I generally have to use Spotlight (Command+Space) to launch Dictionary, then copy + paste to get this done.

    Speaking of the contextual menu, may we be able to fine-tune the nested menu jumping in the contextual menu so that it is more forgiving? Currently, it takes several tries to get through to Go to Included File or Go to Function. I've found that I need to move the mouse directly right into the search bar to be successful. Cutting across diagonally doesn't work. It doesn't sound like something that can be easily implemented, as it would require the code to know the depth of the window.

    I thought this was a Mac OS X quirk, but it's also present in the Windows version, as well.

     

    best of wishes,
