Re: Paste in LPEX for RPG



fixed

I use a similar method for commenting blocks.  If I need to comment a 
large number of lines, but some skip some, I use the block select as 
detailed by Adrian, and then the Selected > Overlay with Selection option 
(shortcut Alt+Z).

Start by commenting out a few lines manually.  Then rectangle select >1 
lines of *****.  I usually try to guess the smallest block I'll be 
commenting at a time - usually two or three lines.  Then, you can cursor 
down to the next block you need to comment, and hit Alt+Z, repeating as 
necessary.

HTH,
Adam

1.- The OO command should work in LPEX as well.

2.- Paste should also work.  Ensure you set "Column sensitive editing", 
so the original lines are not shifted right.

2.- In LPEX you can select a rectangle block (Alt+R at each of its two 
diagonally-opposite corners), then Esc to go to the LPEX command line 
and enter:

   block fill *

or alternatively, after the rectangle selection was done, right-mouse 
click to bring up the pop-up menu, Selected > Fill selection > *.

I can't do this efficiently in LPEX. Instead, I have to leave 
LPEX, open the member in SEU, create a line with **** and copy this 
line over the lines of code with "OO".
This is totally ridiculous. There must be another way.
