I agree with Buck. The preferences are similar, but not all quite the
same. I took screen shots of my old so I could replicate them in the new.
This includes user defined keys, compile commands, filter pools, and

I am currently using 9.0 because 9.1 has an issue with the outline which I
use all the time.

While analyzing an existing program that I am adapting, it shows me where
files, fields, subroutines, etc. are used in the program. It also shows me
files, fields, subroutines and such that are defined, but not used
anywhere. Great for cleaning up code.

With 9.1 every line I change or add, the outline collapses all the outline
tree structure, and I have to repeat my drill down for whatever I am
looking at. It makes 9.1 unusable for me.

I would like to have available some of the other fixes and enhancements
that are available in 9.1.

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!
