The text editor File menu has several commands for standard file management, such as creating, opening, saving, and printing a file.
The New command creates a new source file. Creating a source file does not affect other open source files. The text editor automatically inserts a small amount of standardized text into new VBScript files.
When you open a source file, its name is added to the Window menu. You cannot use the Open command on the File menu to open another copy of an open source file.
You can open multiple files from the Open dialog box by using the mouse to select a file or group of files. Before you can select files, they must be visible in the Directories window.
As you make changes to a source file, an asterisk (*) appears in the title bar to indicate that the file has changed since it was last saved. Each window associated with a source file can retain its own sizing and other window attributes.
You can also save another copy of an existing file. This procedure is useful for maintaining revised copies of a file while keeping the original unchanged.
With the text editor, you can print selected text or a complete file. Text is printed in the default font for the printer if the default text editor font is used. Otherwise, the text prints with the selected text editor font if that font is available on the printer.
You can customize your print jobs by adding headers and footers and by adjusting margins.
The text editor also includes options that control the display of source windows. You can switch between windows, open new windows, split windows into multiple panes, and view a source file in full-screen mode.
