Hi Marc,

It would be extremely useful to have a "Go to line ..." option in the BASIC! Editor menu to navigate large programs.
Scrolling manually is very slow in large programs.
It would also be very useful to be able to know the line number of a certain program line.
Maybe the "Go to line" option's input dialog could display by default the line number at the current cursor position?

Cheers,
Luca

Hi Luca,

You could always use a more complete external editor.
Personally I use the 920 Editor V2 available for free on Google Play, it is very powerful, and you can run the edited .bas in BASIC! in a few clicks.

Nicolas, would you mind sharing the link for this app? I looked for it in Google play and had no luck. I found one that was chinese/japanese, but I'm not sure if it is the same app you are talking about.

Yes sorry I should have mentioned the Play store title is in chinese:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jecelyin.editor.v2

Creator Jecelyin is from China, but don't worry the editor locale switches to your language after installation
You can audit source code at https://github.com/jecelyin/920-text-editor-v2

Thanks Nicolas. I was afraid it would be that one, but if it changes locale, it is ok.

Hi Marc,

What Nicolas says is correct.
Nevertheless, do you think this new editor feature could be possible?

In my own large programs, I divid the program into sections. Using section headers like this:

Code:
!---------------------
!FINDmain program
!---------------------
!main program


Then I just search for the word "find", and press next until I see the header I am looking for.
