 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I can mostly get along with the IDE, but this one thing, I find most annoying....

If you want to go back several steps, the cursor does not move to show what you are undoing, so you can`t see what its doing!

So, I`ve had to save and save often, with a timestamp filename!

IDE for Microsoft Visual Studio and Atmel Studio 6.1, optional USB Debugger

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

The Arduino IDE has been described as "cute". I think it's a safe word to use  smiley

If you are using windows then grab a copy of Visual Studio Pro and the Arduino plugin from http://www.visualmicro.com

If you are using Mac then grab a copy of XCode and plugin from http://embedxcode.weebly.com/

If you are using Linux then use Eclipse and the Eclipse plugin http://eclipse.baeyens.it/

There is also a plugin for codeblocks and other dev tools.

Hope this helps

Yep, if you don't like the IDE (and you're not alone there) use something else.

There are the above options and also you can get the IDE to shell out to your own editor, that works pretty well.

Wow, I never noticed this issue, it seems to be a common limitation in the UndoManager. I guess it can be fixed smiley-grin I will try to do it.

Minimal install of Visual Studio?
In the custom install what do I select?, I`m guessing I don`t need the silverlight and Web stuff...

Except for Silverlight, it might all be useful.

The Visual Micro prerequisites state C#,VB.NET and C++ which allows you to build Arduino and also to create your own debugger visualizations.

The web stuff might be useful in the future for a remote monitoring system but it's up to you.

I`v not used either, I`m just looking for something better than the very basic arduino IDE.

I`ll have a look at the eclipse IDE as well.

Is this the correct link for the plugin?
http://avr-eclipse.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Plugin_Download
There doesn`t seem to be a link to the plugin on your website that I could see.

No it is not. The avr-eclipse is the basis for my plugin. It misses the easy to use features.
on my website http://eclipse.baeyens.it/
You can find the installation instructions http://eclipse.baeyens.it/Install.html
Eclipse has it's own way of installing plugins. This allows for easy upgrades to.
For a quick intro look at http://eclipse.baeyens.it/serial_demo.wmv

Not sure whether to start a new thread about Eclipse or not, anyway...

The Preferences page is slightly different from your screen-shot to resolve the "serial" errors.
Version: Juno Service Release 1
Build id: 20120920-0800
There`s no "files to index up-front" in the preferences - indexer part

There is a thread on the eclipse plugin
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,79595.0.html
I noticed this today as well. The reason is that what you see is in Juno while the other is in Indigo.
The bad news is : In Juno you can not set this option anymore
The good news is that after a compile and a rebuild of the indexer Juno sees the Serial.
