Imporovement of SP Workbench Editor
Have been working with scripts with length upto 17 thousands. I would like to suggest few tips for improvement of Silk Performer Workbench Editor , it should not only add lines but should also add features of modern text editors like :
1. Folding a part of script based on function : Often a recorded script has events which record lines as long as 1000s. It becomes tedious to scroll and navigate across script. If editor has the feature to fold such parts it would add great help for scrolling scripts up-down.
2. Column Selection : There should be some way to make selection based on columns eg. some modern text editors allow user to select text in columns by pressing CTRL+ ALT Select.
3. Add the option for "Open Containing Folder" for the CSV/Data files : Data files can be kept at many directories, hence its tedious to locate these files (by looking at the directory location in hover text in project explorer). Hence add option to right click to open the directory where the csv/data files are located.
Silk Performer 19.5 contains a technical preview of the new BDL editor which comes with this, and many other usability enhancements.

and not to forget :
4. Add Drag-&-Drop support for adding BDF files/ Data files to Project Explorer. (Like MSVS IDE)
