Hi, A simple feature request please (from a former AutoCAD user). I believe there is lots in the pipeline for text editor functionality. One niggle I struggle with is pressing ESC to complete entering your text. It is just not sensible. Escape should mean cancel what I was doing and go back a step. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2018/eng/VW2018_Guide/Text/Creating_a_Line_of_Text.htm#XREF_79678_Creating_a_Line_of ACAD uses CRTL+Enter text, but it can also be used elsewhere when you want to execute a command/dialogue box after entering the text string value. Email applications use Ctrl+Enter as SEND (e.g. Outlook). Thanks, Ross Edit: LOL ... (AND PRESSING CTRL+ENTER on this forum page, submits my question too!!!)
As I've read, it's possible to use an external text editor instead of the built-in one. I'd like to be able to keep a .py file open, save it, and have it automatically update in Vectorworks, and I'd think there would be a way to select a file to be referenced, but I can't figure out how to do this; I also haven't found anything useful on the developer page. When I navigate to the plugins manager there are .vso and .vst files with the names of plugins I've created, but if I try to open them in Sublime it's just a string of integers. How can I integrate a text editor into my workflow?
