One thing that is not found in enough IDEs is collapsible text/script, yet it is hands down the greatest tool to simplify and organize complicated code. For someone like me, who is a beginner at programming, it would help me understand code much faster and I know that pros would love this because of how clean it would make the working environment.



Cheers,
Asher

Haha, yes Asher, I myself would like the feature as well, I am too busy with making the basics work for now though like adding GMX support. But yes we need some more advanced stuff like that in the script editor.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

Scintilla based editors have the following for C++/C lexers:
Code: [Select]
//{ This is a region!
if (blah blah...)
//}

If this feature does get added, I think this is the best way to add it to GML (or EDL) without losing compatibility.

I don't know about some #region or //{, but I think regular block folding would be good. Like all {} could be folded. Usually only functions are foldable (like in C::B for example), but ENIGMA doesn't have functions per se.
