build up of old OS Commands

WingIDE - User mailing list


I use Cmd+R as a shortcut to the Execute-File command, and I run scripts frequently this way.  Recently I've noticed that there's a massive buildup of old run file commands in the pulldown menu in OS Commands.  If I move my mouse cursor over this while inadvertently scrolling (because of my frustratingly scroll-happy magic mouse) the commands change and I lose my console readout.  

I think this could be solved by not saving all those old commands.  Is there a way to remove all the old ones?  I could go and delete them one by one, but I'm hoping for a faster method.  Or a way to maybe clear the cache when I close the program?  

Dan

Unfortunately there's no easy way to remove lots of commands from OS
Commands.  You can show the toolbox as a list from the Options menu but
stupidly that doesn't seem to process all the items when multiple things
are selected.  I'll see if we can fix that.

A work-around would be to quit Wing, edit the project file and manually
remove the commands.

Thanks for pointing out this issue.

Thanks for the response!  Manually editing the project file sounds like a good trick to learn.  I'm doing most of my work right now on a mac without any project open, where do those OS Commands get saved in that case?

It's console.toolbox in the *.wpr file.  The project files are in a
fairly self-explanatory text format.

Aha, got it, took me a bit to find the default.wpr in the Application Support directory, but after that it was a cinch.  Thanks!
