[snip] I like the short(one second) display of status messages in the status bar and I don't want to remove it.
When I save a file, that status bar "File ... saved" message appears and doesn't go away until I hit an arrow key. I'm not seeing a one second delay anywhere.
I tried it and I saw you need to wait for a delay _and_ hit a key or move the text cursor. I think this could be better if you can wait _or_ hit a key to suppress the message.
Anyway, I agree that the file saved message isn't that useful at this point. Maybe all file action
messages could be skipped. So, there are three possible solutions: a) just skip the file saved message in the status bar (not in the status window) b) skip all file action related messages in the status bar (not in
status window) c) add a preference to suppress all status messages in the status bar (also messages about find results and similars)
I would prefer solution a or b.
Just my 2 cents, but for consistency and also for avoiding too much redundancy, I like (b).
I also think a preference is welcome. Let me explain myself. Sometimes I work with several files and I need to make some minor changes like changing the charset of the file. In this case I'd like not to get a confirmation message as I need to see the charset of each file.
Sometimes I also need to make changes on a config file for example, and in this case I like to get the saving confirmation message.
Jean-Phillipe, are you talking about the status *bar* or the status *window*?
I'm talking about the status bar, where you can find informations about the charset, current line etc.
Seems to me that since Geany has a status window, it makes sense to always get useful messages in that status window, and use the status bar only for what it already displays by default (line, column, characters selected, encoding, and so on).
However, since users can toggle visibility of the message window, maybe have the status bar display extra messages only when the message window is not visible?
I agree, this could be a nice solution. Maybe with a preference with 3 choices : - Always see the messages in status bar - See the messages in status bar only when the message window is not displayed - Never see the messages in status bar
BTW, I notice that the status bar says "MOD" when the file has modified. This is in addition to the name in the tab being colored red, and the asterisk appearing in Geany's title bar. Anyway, a small bug/inconsistency: although the name also appears in red in the Open Files tab in the sidebar, it turns black when it's the one that's selected. I think it should stay red, like the text in the tab.
