    This is a limitation of the underlying Etherpad editor, which wasn’t really built for writing code. Code-specific editing functionality is currently limited, and this is an area that is ripe for improvement.

  4. pre-fetch data

    when I first prefetch a csv file with the /* @pjs ...*/ It doesn't work. If I also preload an image before the csv, then it works !

  6. Use cleaner URLs

    Shorter URLs would be nice to send around. For example I find this quite long:
    http://studio.sketchpad.cc/sp/pad/view/dZJkbh0jLQ/latest
    Can't we have
    http://sketchpad.cc/dZJkbh0jLQ instead? :)

  7. ios 5 contentEditable

    IOS 5 supports contentEditable, yet the site blocks me off still. Am I wrong?

    Thanks for the heads-up on this one. The editor does, in fact, now work in iOS5, but there are two issues remaining. Apparently scrolling doesn’t work in these contenteditable regions, which is unfortunate. Once I have a chance to sort this out, I’ll stop redirecting traffic from MobileSafari.
    Thanks!

  8. Make "My Sketches" under home tab editable

    If I go to the "home" tab and click one of my sketches, it's read only. I have the option to clone and modify it, but not edit it myself. Confusing!

    You should have it use the same URL that appear under the "your sketches" tab whenever the sketch owner is the same as the logged in user.

    Sorry about the confusion. There is an “Edit Sketch” button to the left of the title of any sketch that you created, but this could be more clear. If you aren’t seeing this button on a sketch that should have it, send me the URL and I can try to debug. Thanks!

  9. fix the arrow keys!

    This sketch works in processing, but breaks in sketchpad:

    http://studio.sketchpad.cc/sp/pad/view/ro.9tnKrz0qSr6CD/latest

    That's no fun, because I want to make games! :D

  10. Make the editor more easily compatible with mobile devices

    Because the editor is in javascript, it will run on many mobile devices. Formatting the editor for a mobile format could be beneficial for easily adding quick code when it occurs to you, and not having to wait until you get back to your computer to add something to your sketch.

  11. Search a sketch by name

    I can't find where to search for a Sketch? I remember one I saw at random last day and now I have to browse the entire 700+ list to find it.

    A search sketch by name would be very handy!

  13. Put in an option to use threads

    Currently there is no option to use threads in Javascript, unless you hack your way in using JsLibs.

  14. make giving feedback to sketch authors easy and prominent

    Looking for a way to share my compliments to the sketch authors/programmers but can't find it easily. If there is a way, then make it easy. If there isn't a way to leave comments, then provide one. thanks

  15. rollbacks should show if it compiled or not :-)

    browsing old rollbacks, it would be nice if there was a visual indicator that indicated if it actually ran...

    Definitely. My plan was to show a screenshot of each revision, but maybe just a thumbs-up for success is all that’s really necessary. Either way, I’d like to make immediately obvious at which point a sketch stopped working as expected.

  16. prettify code and/or autoindent closing brace

    THe processing IDE has a nice ctrl-t "line everything up". If that's too much, I guess most of the "auto tabbing" editors I use know to unindent one when I type }...

    I agree that both ideas would definitely improve the editor. I’ll take a look at which would be easier to implement, and put that on my list. Much room for improvement in the editor right now…

  19. ContextFree.js

    What if sketchpad could offer another drawing language ? ContextFree.js

    See http://azarask.in/projects/algorithm-ink for a demo.
