updating edit window when underlying local file changes - all within Komodo

I would like to force an edit window to update its contents based on a change in the underlying file. For example:

I have split editor windows. In one window I have a python script that writes to a local file. In the other window I have the local file open and its contents displayed. When the local file changes I have to do certain special things like click on the file tab, or ctrl-tab away from and then back to the changed file before it reflects the changes in its edit window.

No radial gradient with HTML5 in Komodo Edit?¿

Hi, I have noticed that using HTML5 canvas, the RadialGradient doesn't work in Komodo's preview tab, it just appears white. LinearGradient function works though.
The code works if I open the file with Google Chrome.
I've been testing a litle bit and Radial Gradient seems to work only when the "startRadious" parameter is set to '0' otherwise won't work ( var grd=context.createRadialGradient(startX, startY, startRadius, endX, endY, endRadius); )

Will ActivePerl 5.8.6 work with PDK 9.1.1?

Will ActivePerl 5.8.6 work with PDK 9.1.1? If not, what is the earliest version of ActivePerl that it will work with?

Upgrading to new version

Hello, I find very annoying when I upgraded to AP 5.16 that all my installed packages were lost. Is there a chance to save the list of existing packages before uninstalling previous perl version, the installing them back after major upgrade?

start debug opens wrong file

There seems to be a long standing intermittent bug re opening a file for debugging. It has plagued me for years and I just kept hoping that it would be fixed. I believe I did make bug reports in the past.

I am using Komodo IDE 6.1 Occasionally and with no ability to reproduce the context so I know how to avoid it, the following happens which is most annoying.

First Time User

Hello Everyone! This is my first time using this software so I am now confuse that I am not able to test a html file. Please anyone available?

Major Slowdowns - esp. on remote files

Most of my work is on remote files, and I generally have 10-15 files open at any one time.

Komodo often freezes (goes into "not responding" status) or there will be a delay when entering characters - sometimes 2-4 seconds from the time I enter the character to when it shows up.

Memory usage will jump to 90+% on my machine.

Any thoughts on how to fix/counteract?


Trouble trying to use SciViews-K with Komodo Edit v7.0.2.

Hello everyone,

I am attempting to use SciViews-K with Komodo Edit v.7.0.2 so that I can have a GUI for R, but am having difficulty getting the two applications to talk to each other. FYI, I am not a coder or developer, just an academic who is looking for a more feature-rich, user-friendly environment for R. (I am a big fan of the MATLAB GUI, if that says anything.)

My config details are as follows:

OS: Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit)
R: 2.14.0 (64-bit)
Komodo Edit: v7.0.2
SciViews-K: 1.1.3dev (older versions would simply not install)

JavaScript completion issues

[EDIT] I don't think this issue is actually related to the nightly builds after all

I'm not sure when this started but I'm using the nightly since this build:

Komodo IDE, version 7.1.0, build 71423, platform win32-x86. Built on Wed May 16 08:02:03 2012.

Then Komodo updated itself this morning to the latest. Autocompletion on custom classes appeared to stop working, so I uninstalled and reinstalled the old nightly I had, but now this appears to be suffering from the same issue. I've renamed the AppData preferences folder so Komodo creates a new one, but stangely, still nothing.
