Contuing IDE gripes

#1
1. There's no Ctrl-F1 help for variable functions (as in TCC and TCMD). The only way to get dynamic help on a variable function is to select it (the hard way, double-click won't work) and choose "Dynamic Help" from the menu or the tool bar.
2. There's no balloon help for commands prefixed with '@' (which I hear a lot of people use).

I like that font. It's just like raster 8x12 which I have always used in consoles, and before there were consoles, in all versions of MSDOS.
As you like. But you're going to have endless problems with Unicode characters and non-printable ASCII characters. And forget about trying to access filenames (or cutting & pasting) using any non-English alpha characters.
