Keyword coloring edit control


New Features

Dragging during a selection will now scroll the window. I’ve fixed several problems and have one know unresolved bug. Color encoding quotes is now supported.

Known Bugs

The editor won’t scroll beyond 1500 lines on Win95. I suspect this is due to a limitation in the size of the GDI area in MM_TEXT. If anyone has some ideas for working around this, please let me know.
