  • Convert File / Convert Selection

    When a user has an active selection on the screen, please provide a "Convert Selection" option under the Edit dropdown menu to allow a user to perform the "Convert File" activity against the selected portion of the file instead of against the entire file.

    Converting only a selection is pretty obscure and would be confusing. I checked and your favorite editor, UltraEdit, doesn't do this either. Why do you need such a feature? If you only want to act on a few lines, just edit them. Or a search and replace might work for you.

      Wow! We are really getting in our practice at shooting down ideas today, aren't we.

        My favorite editor (UltraEdit) has "Tabs to Spaces" which acts against a selection.
        If there is no selection, it acts against the whole file.

        Furthermore, I find that I need to perform such activity more often in a file comparison session than when editing a single file.
