I would notice that some annoing bugs persist on the last version of Ride.

1. On an opened file on the editor pressing CTRL-S to save cause the vertical scrollbar to be unaccessible with the mouse cursor. Switching to another file and back makes the problem disappearing.
2. Sometimes the syntax colorization on a file is lost during work. I cannot reproduce the problem. I paste the piece of code that cause the loosing boundary:

bool CheckAlignment(void)
u8 vect[] = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7};
s32 i;

for (i = 0; i < 4; i++)
{ //Syntax colorization works within this line. The next has been lost
if ( *((u32*)(vect + i)) != ((u32)vect[i] + (u32)(vect[i + 1] << 8) + (u32)(vect[i + 2] << 16) + (u32)(vect[i + 3] << 24)))
return FALSE;

return TRUE;

3. It seems that the only way to save a project configuration is closing the IDE. This is not good in case of a crash!

4. The context menu "Goto definition" does not work in 99.9% of cases. I don't pretend for defines, but for real objects it should work!

Hope this helps

Hi Giorgio,

Thanks for your feedback.
The bug 1) above is new to us, we will fix it in the next Ride release.
Concerning syntax coloring we have to check what happens. The problem is that we do not have an easy way to reproduce it.
You can save your project through the "Project | Save Project" Ride7 menu entry, which is what you want to do.

The "Goto definition" works fine for me, in 100% of the cases! So we would be interested into having some more information about your configuration ("Help | About..." in Ride7) and if possible can you send us a project which shows the failing "Goto definition"?

I suffer from point 2 aswell - Making a dummy edit (inserting and removing a char for instance) and saving fixes it for a while. Unfortunatly I can not share my projects.
About Ride7 on my machine yelds:
Ride7 IDE version 7.14.0001 Fully functional no serialization needed Installed on 2008/11/10
RKit-ARM for RIDE7 version 1.13.0810 Fully functional no serialization needed Installed on 2008/11/10

I have setup my options->Customize layout->Keyboard to Microsoft Visual Studio.

Have been using RIDE for the past year and while it have moved forward I don't l think the editor is quite good enough. It lacks some (for me) important features..
See my thread here:

I am thinking seriusly about starting to use an external editor like notepad++, UltraEdit or even SlickEdit...
