PS: An old bug that I can't reproduce, but which I came accross, at certain conditions, help system is corrupted, and only random characters in random colors are shown, specially after trying Ctrl+Click to get a term in help.


> Hi,
> I am new to the FPC IDE for DOS, as I am more used to that of TP/TC, and 
> to compile manually from commandline. I must admit it has improved a lot 
> since I list tried it, where I rejected using it due to the critical 
> bugs which made the IDE abort quite frequently at compiling.
> However, I can't tune up the Editor preferences as I'd like to, and I 
> don't know which are bugs, which are not-ready features, and which are 
> misconfiguration.
> There are two things that I would like to feel on the IDE Editor, 
> regarding selected blocks.
> One is that, if a block is selected and I move the cursor off with the 
> keyboard, the block should be automatically unselected. This is what I 
> understood to be "Persistent Blocks" to be DISABLED. However, my 
> Persistent Block option in Options\Environment\Editor is disabled, but 
> the behaviour persists.
> The second one is that I would like that, when a block is selected, any 
> key replaces it, and pressing DEL removes it. I think Borland used the 
> terminology "Overwrite blocks", or something like that, but I don't see 
> such option in the editor.
> I am using the IDE that comes with ver 1.0.4, but if you tell me that 
> these are bugs which are fixed by 1.0.6, I'll switch :)
