Enhancements in progress???

More of Charlie's dumb questions.

1. Is it in the pipiline to have Sigil able to load the last file on start-up and at the last point of edit?

2. Right now the tab for a section does not appear until that section is opened from the Bookviewer, so that after a save and shut-down each section must be opened individually before the Ctl+PgUp/PgDn can work.

Just curious as these point would certainly speedup operations.

BTW, Valoric. How did the finals and paper submissions go?

No. There's the recent files list in the File menu. Should be enough IMO. "At the last point of edit" would require some sort of custom file format, and I'm committed to pure epub. SGF is dead.

Well the fact that Sigil only loads the tab file content only when the tab is opened is one of the major contributions to the fast book loading speed in 0.2.0. If 0.2.0 loaded all the tabs when the book was opened, we'd be back to 0.1.x minutes-long book loading.

Finals soon, papers almost all done.

Not necessarily, you the last "point of edit" could be stored with the Sigil preferences, along with the list of recent files. Most readers store the current position of the books you're reading without touching the original .epub file, after all.

I vote for having whatever tab that had focus at exit/close being the Only tab restored if I use the Recent files to re-visit a publication.

Speaking of recent files:
Could we get Sigil to add the Current file to the list on the first save? Currently if you Abend, the list is not current.

Yes, that's one of the ways of doing it. AFAIK there are three places where an application can add the "point of edit" info:
  1. In the document itself (like what Word does with DOCX)
  2. In a separate document that "goes along" with the original document (like what Visual Studio does, storing this not inside source files, but accompanying project files)
  3. In a "settings database", using document identifiers to automatically link per-document info and the document.
I reject option 1 on principle. Option 2 is just unwieldy and overkill for this use-case. Option 3 is... inelegant, but something I could theoretically live with. Of course, it would bring with it a whole set of other problems and honestly, I don't think the feature itself brings enough to the table to warrant the complexity. At least not right now.
