I am using the comments to disable a block of code, like you describe, to
make it easy to see and locate.
At a prior job, I used to just use one asterisk to disable blocks of code,
until another developer mentioned that it even though it does work, it
makes it hard to quickly see what code has been disabled. He recommended
six asterisks to make it obvious what was disabled, and I still do that to
this day to make the disabled code stand out.
For free format, I had previously [before this upgrade] did CTRL/ three
times to get six slashes and CTRL/ six times to get six asterisks when in
fixed format. But now, with the upgrade, it no longer prepends the
asterisk or slashes, it toggles them on and off instead.
What I was wondering is how can you get RDI to work how it used to work
before the upgrade? Now I have to key six asterisks and six slashes
manually, which kind of defeats the purpose of the CTRL/ function.
