In a recent thread about how to set up the Workbench, reference was made to block commenting—select a range of lines and automatically comment or uncomment the entire range with \ comments.
Did not know that could be done in Workbench. I spend a lot of time commenting and uncommenting line by line (since /* … */ comments over a range of code collapses that range and I have not found a way to restore the formatting when the comment tags are removed).
Upon reading the previous post, I did some digging around, ended up installing Scintilla and hooking it up to Workbench as the external editor, and I can indeed comment and uncomment blocks of text. But I have to do the commenting in the external Scintilla, save the file, then reopen it in Workbench.
Is there a way to get the Workbench’s embedded Scintilla to support block comments so I don’t have to use the external editor?
