Script Debugger 8 released with the very useful (and very appreciated!) ability to escape tabs & line breaks in strings. I’ve been using that preference ever since the beta & loving every minute of it.
One rough edge I’ve noticed is that double-clicking to select a word immediately following a linefeed (
\n) causes the preceding
n to also be selected. When typing to replace the selection, this causes the
n to be deleted and usually leads to a compilation error (if you don’t catch the accidental deletion). This is obviously not desired behaviour (I would assume it is just inherited behaviour).
Mark/Shane, would it be feasible for the text selection logic of SD to be updated to handle the special AppleScript escape codes? I don’t have a good sense of how complex this would be to implement.
