Hi Buck

I have to reply on the use of the outline.

If you want to find a procedure, I see at least 3 ways to do it -

1. Ctrl-F, type in proc name, Alt-A to get them all, then find the procedure itself
2. Right-click and filter by procedures, then find it and click on the plus sign to open it
3. Go to the outline, open the procedures item, click on the one you want and you are there

All are good ways to do it - the outline adds things like where something is used - similar to #1, where you'll see all references to something

outline also gives you direct view of fields in files and of keys and keylists and data structures and all - I find it invaluable.

Thanks for that suggestion, Buck.
Curious though -- is the evolution of RDi so great between WDSc and today that many of the preferences from then don't fit today? I'm anticipating that some (or many?) preference labels may have different names now?
With the greatest respect for the team, RDi is very similar to WDSC,
especially if you are an RPG/DSPF/CL programmer like me.

I don't do any webbish work, so there may be some wonderful stuff there
that I just never had a need for. This bears repeating: the way that I
work, I may never use a feature that others simply cannot live without.
The Outline View comes immediately to mind. I just can't seem to find
the value proposition. The point isn't that it's bad; it's just not the
way I work.

I hope that others jump in and add comments about post-WDSC features
they really like. It'll do me good to give some stuff a whirl too!
