@Carl Love @acer I appreciate all your good advice. What has been explained here on why you use code editors makes good sense. The translation bug helped convince me of that, so I presume there would be a fair few others. I have been looking at some of the code editors.
Eclipse looked good with the Maple IDE but that seems to have been discontinued. Saw a Youtube video on it.
Downloaded EMACS last night Way out gradient for my limited knowledge.
Sublime text might be a way forward. I will ask a programmer at work to show me how it is used. I see there is this https://github.com/johnpmay/SublimeTextMaple available. The instructions are
- Copy all files to Packages/User directory
So I did this C:\Program Files\Sublime Text\Packages\Ronan and placed the 3 files there. Not sure if that is correct though.
As of yet no idea what next to do.
Why don't Maple make the Code Editor work externally to save the text files?
