You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there.

or...www.textpad.com Textpad is widely used by focus developers for editing fexes. line numbers included; but remember, the line number reported in the error message is not always the line number in the fex. Your fex may call subroutines, etc, which increase the line count.

While we're waiting for line numbers to appear to the left of the code, sometime after v7.6.5 the cursor line and column number was added to the bottom right section of the status bar in the editor window, which is somewhat helpful. Or just configure a real programmer's text editor (EditPlus is my fave, and I'm looking into Aptana Studio).
