I am pretty convinced that the developers of the Bat are not really all that friendly. They will not respond to any of my feature suggestions anymore and they refuse to address the problem I've explained here other than to say "That's how it is and we're not going to change it." It doesn't make sense to me because the feature I am asking for doesn't change anything, it just adds a small feature, something most developers would easily and gladly add.
Again, I asked for the following feature:
--When Auto-Format is turned on, have an additional option (checkbox) to enable/disable "Allow single carriage return"
There's no reason for current users to oppose this idea because it would be transparent to them. If they don't want anything to change, just leave it off and everything will be the same. But for others like me, it allows us to start new lines without having to press Enter twice, while still keeping the auto-format reflowing features, and the other benefits of using microEd. Yet, many users in their mailing list oppose the idea and keep telling me to just use Alt-L. I'm not looking for a workaround. I know about Alt-L. That's not the point. I know how to do it if I have to, I just feel it's too much work for something that needs to always happen.
This is not the first time I've been frustrated by the Bat's developers and community. A few months ago, I asked a question that was critical about MicroEd on their forum, and the banned me from the forum without warning and removed the thread. I was not being mean or rude, I was just questioning and somewhat critical. This was the first and only time my feature suggestions and comments about a program have not been appreciated and actually had a negative response.
That's why I said 95%. It's not perfect & in your example when the text turns into "list 1 list 2" just put the cursor right before "list 2" and hit enter. It'll stay properly formatted then. It's inconvenient & I can see your point, but the advantages of using The Bat! far outweigh the disadvantages of the editor.
Innuendo, no offense, but this is exactly the type of response I am getting from the other users. I know you mean well, but my point in asking was not because I couldn't find a workaround. I know how get it to work the way i want using the current features. What I'm frustrated about is the extra steps it takes, which I feel can be eliminated if they add my feature suggestion.
Every day for the last several years, when I use the Bat, i probably have to do a few extra steps because of this wrapping issue. I wouldn't care so much normally, but in this case, it's a tool that I use way too much to go unsaid.
