I suggest that you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Keyboard shortcut to comment/uncomment selected lines

    Although I don't know the specifics of Etherpad, this would hopefully be a fairly simple text transformation:

    For each line in the selection, add '//'. Unless every line in the selection starts with '//', then remove the first '//' from each line.

    Hope this is possible, as quickly commenting/uncommenting blocks makes messing around way easier... :)

    • ContextFree.js

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

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

      • Sketch creation name ending in .cpp .h etc... to automatically color code the data

        If a Sketch name is entered with extentions such as .cpp .h etc.... the system should automatically color code the data accordingly, instead or having to click in "Syntax-highlighting" and change screens.

        • I've created three accounts, and I've never been able to log into any of them.

          First session works fine but after that it's all "account not found"

                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!

                • I'm not able to use texture

                  hi there! I'm trying to use a texture in a 3D scene. But when I activate the program it seems to freeze. (nothing happens, just a black canvas)

                  I tried this example: http://processing.org/learning/topics_test/texturequad.html
                  (with this texture: http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRnyPO1EOKm8Us-bG6PY6l1VxT9B22sc-zxBbhEBt6tRO_jNJowNeVfm3U )

                    • error

                      when using IE 10 with a sketch that is using P3D as the rendering mode it displays the error "Sorry, Processing.js is not supported in this version of Internet Explorer" this isn't because pjs isn't supported it is because P3D isn't supported by IE. This led to a little confusion. so just fyi

                      • Allow html customization deletion/undoing

                        I customized the html in my sketch trying to include a library; then I ruined it ("Processing is not defined" appears in the code). But when I delete my customization, or go back in file history, the error persists.

                          Please can someone explain why I can't type in normal parenthesis () in the editor? I just get a black highlight, {} works though.

                                      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.

                                      I've seen a previous post about the possibility to delete sketches, which is dated 5th november 2010. I want only to know if the project is still in progress or it has been left apart.

                                      • real full screen visualization

                                        Is simple the only thing is when you visualize a script the canvas is positioning top:0% left:0%

                                        so you can make scripts with size(screen.width, screen.height) correctly
