New QuickCode Pro Enhancements
Search Tool
– The look of the Find and Replace dialog has been changed to conform more
closely with 4D’s dialog style.

New QuickCode Pro Bug Fixes
– If the 80th character of a comment was a hyphen, the word before the
hyphen was wrapped along with the hyphen. Now the hyphen and the word
before it remain where they were and subsequent characters are wrapped to
the next line.
– Whitespace at the end of a line was not properly being skipped by

– If you were typing a double-quoted string and the following line had a
double quote more than 80 characters from the insertion point, AutoQuote
would mistakenly think you had reached the 80 character limit and weirdly
break up the line you were typing.

– Using HotHelp with tables, fields or methods in version 6.0.x would cause
a crash.
– If an open file other than 4D had a STR# resource with ID 2, HotHelp
would not be active.

– If a tip was showing when a toolbar tool was invoked, the tip would not
disappear until after the menu was released or the tool was finished
performing its action. Toolbar tips are now removed as soon as the mouse is
clicked or a key is pressed.

– Inserting a QuickClip would place the cursor at (the end of the inserted
text + the length of the inserted text).

– If the 4D Help file’s language did not match the language of 4D,
QuickCommand would sometimes complete parameter lists incorrectly.
– If an open file other than 4D had a STR# resource with ID 2, QuickCommand
would not be active.

– The Find button in the Find and Replace dialog was always enabled when
the dialog first opened, even if there was no find pattern.

1.0.1) or higher (including MacOS 9)
