Quick 'comment' feature

It would be great if you could select a section of code, and hit a key or button, and have Pinegrow automatically add the front and back comment tag code to each end of that selection, so you could very quickly/easily comment out sections of code (…and, also have a similar button/key to remove all comment tags found within a selection).

So far, that’s about the only limitation/issue I have with the code editor in Pinegrow (for my needs).

I’m not sure if you are familiar with ATOM but this can easily be done with their code editor and integrates with PG (as a temp fix).

Yep, it certainly would serve well as a quick fix/workaround. I’ve actually had ATOM for quite some time, but never installed it. I was hoping Pinegrow had the feature, but it was recently confirmed to me it doesn’t. So, here I am.

In my particular case, that’s about the only thing I find lacking in Pinegrow’s editor (for my purposes), so ideally I’d prefer not to have an external editor just for that one thing.

I agree with @ladlon, this would be a useful feature to add. Comments could also have their own items in the tree (maybe with a differentiated look), indicating they’re there.

Hi @ladlon, @jonroc, @martonlente and anybody else interested -
Sorry for the slow response to this one, but it is already a feature in Pinegrow. If you go into the “Support” -> “Settings…” modal and scroll down you will see a section for code editing.


At the bottom of this section is an option to use Emmet in the code editor. If you turn that on you can now highlight a block of code and then use CMD-/ (command plus forward slash) to toggle between commented and uncommented.
BTW: Once you get the basic syntax Emmet is awesome!

@RobM: Awewome! Yup, that works for me. At this point, it’s really just the commenting feature that I would really benefit from, and that nails it. Thanks!
