If a block or a text ruler is selected it is transferred for editing without further interaction, otherwise the entire text.
If a window with text from this frame is already present, an alert
message appears. This offers the alternatives of activating the
existing window (
Show) instead of opening a new window
The Eddie window has a dialog section in the top area that contains several icons that are also found in the function area at left. These are the icons for the text flow from and to the frame, for opening the search/replace window, and for inserting control codes. In addition, you can also set the three different display modes for control codes here.
For further information, there is a so-called text magnifier – an area that always displays the current section of text around the cursor with all control codes, irrespective of the selected display mode for the window. Below this the current line number is shown.
The functions for data transfer between frame and text windows may need confirmation of a suitable safety query before they are executed.
