Block collapsing - feature request

The Xojo IDE has a way to collapse (and uncollapse) blocks.

Saving a project always uncollapse all blocks.
Is this a bug or a non-feature?

This is one of the many flaws of the IDE.

Because Xojo Inc told us they are working to improve the Xojo IDE I added a feature request for the above issue… please give some points to this.

My personal opinion… this is NOT a must have… collapsed blocks should NOT persistent between project save/load. They should in fact be used very sparingly. But I will admit that XOJO is one of the few languages where I rarely find need to use this at all, and use it only in XCODE to help find where that snarky extra “}” was supposed to be.

there are other more important IDE fixes that should come WAY before adding new features

Most IDEs do that. They even put the cursor at the previous position. I like it that way.
But I agree that it is not a must have, especially not with all the other stuff like copying problems within the navigator, etc.

Neither
It’s never been design to save that state

can’t be “neither”

either its a feature that doesn’t work… ie. a “bug”
or its something never implemented… .ie “a non-feature”

so its a “non-feature”

I never use the feature. In my opinion, the need to collapse a block ought to be an indication that it’s time to refactor some code.

Never designed or conceived to do this - so not bug nor was it a missing feature
