MultiEdit V8.0

If DAC did not automatically find the Meconfig.db file containing the data necessary for importing, click the Setup button in the Import dialog and enter the path to the file or, after clicking Browse, indicate the location of the file to DAC. The file usually resides in the ...Program Files\Multi-Edit8\Config directory, and/or in the Config subdirectory of the directory in which you installed ME.

If you want to work simultaneously with both editors for some time you can do the following:

Open the project file with Project / Edit project file, and in the [action.start] section enter the following text:

ME !ME
.%SaveAll
.%LeaveAppOnTop(TRUE)
+c:\Program Files\Multi-Edit8\MEW32.exe %CurrFile /L%CurrLine


The ME button will appear on the toolbar. Using this button, you can open MultiEdit with the file you are working on in the same location. Pay attention only to the fact that the last line is actually the DOS Shell command line and that it is necessary for you to modify the path to the MEW32.exe file depending on where you have installed MultiEdit.
If you have often used MultiEdit's Search / File Find functionality, you can get a corresponding DAC functionality by choosing Search / Find all. However, that is not all. If you have built up a database for your project, you can also start a more intelligent search. Let us suppose that you have opened one of the source files of the project you have just imported in Editor. You are interested in finding all locations at which the variable you are looking at was used. This could not be easier. Instead of a boring file grep and possibly rejecting half of the instances found, as variables in other sections of the code might have the same name, simply position the mouse cursor on the variable, click the right mouse button and choose Uses. The Browse window will open and display all instances of the very variable found in the project. Just as with the ME FS List window, here you can also open a file by double-clicking it at variable position.

You will get compiler settings from MultiEdit, that is commands to the compiler after the importing by selecting Start and the corresponding action. Likewise, you can get imported VCS commands by selecting File / Version Control System.
