A related question: is there a shortcut to fold or unfold all code at the same time?
Right click in the IDE editor and select Folding

Please do this:
  • File > Preferences > Show verbose output during: > compilation (uncheck) > upload (check) > OK
  • Sketch > Upload
  • After the upload fails you'll see a button on the right side of the orange bar "Copy error messages". Click that button.
  • Paste the error messages in a reply here USING CODE TAGS (</> button on the forum toolbar).

currently I was using 1.8.5 (portable), now I want to upgrade to 1.8.8
I downloaded 1.8.8 zip (non-admin install)
after extracting, should I better
a) copy my old  1.8.5 portabe folder into the new 1.8.8 arduino folder, or
b) copy the new 1.8.8 arduino folder contents into the old 1.8.5 arduino folder
?
I definitely do not want to have to  reinstall all my actual board cores from ESP and Adafruit boards anew...

It's easiest and safest to copy your old 1.8.5 portable folder into the new 1.8.8 arduino folder.

extremely regrettable:
there is still no useable search function available yet for searching just whole words, or seperated functions for "find" (ctrl+F) and "search/replace" (ctrl+H).
tbh, that is embarrassing and devastating... :(

Devestating seems like a bit of an overstatement.

If it's that bad, you must have an idea about how to improve on what you have now.
So what stops you from picking this up and solve the problem for the entire community ?

To me, the present search function is sufficient.
But i'm not doing that much searching.
Perhaps if i'd have to use it to do my job, i might like it to be more advanced.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

Hardly the end of the World when a strategically placed space in the search term usually suffices

Whilst Ctrl+H would be nice as it is a standard, for find and replace I usually do double click to highlight the search text, Ctrl+F to open the find dialogue with the search term in place then tab to get to the replace field which I type in

Or as often the case, the seach and replace terms are very similar I double click to highlight the search text, Ctrl+F to open the find dialogue with the search term in place then Ctrl+C to copy the search term  tab to get to the replace field, Ctrl+V to paste the search term into the replace field which I then edit

Ctrl+H would require no less clicks or keystrokes

The unified dialog for both search and replace is  completely confusing for follow-up searches, when there must not happen any a replace action coincidentally.
But above all that annoying issue is about the missing option "searching for whole words only", both for find and for replace.
As to "whole word" searches, spaces don't work compellingly, like e.g. replace: int by int16_t also in terms like (int) or <int>, but not in Serial.print() or in int32_t (just 1 arbitrary example).

after having updated Arduino 1.8.5. to 1.8.8 on my PC, I now have to do that also on my Raspi.
In /home/pi/ can find a folder
arduino-1.8.5
feat also a subfolder "portable",
but IIRC there are supposed to be 1 or 2 to additional Arduino program folders (I read something about that in another topic), but I can't see them though (show hidden files is activated in the filemanager).

Which is the correct upgrade procedure to 1.8.8 on the Pi, not leaving any file orphans behind?

If you have never used the Arduino IDE without the "portable" subfolder present, then the only other folder used by the Arduino IDE is the sketchbook folder. You can find the location of that folder in the Arduino IDE at File > Preferences > Sketchbook location. If you have run the Arduino IDE without the "portable" folder, then there will also be a folder at /home/{username}/.arduino15. That is a hidden folder.

thank you, I can't remember how I once installed Arduino IDE on my Pi or if I altered a prior installation,  I once followed some instructions I found in the web (which I do not remember exactly).

Anyway, there is no hidden folder visible.

Is there meanwhile a working apt-get install version?
or just these commands I found here in this forum?

wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz
tar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz

will that install automatically also the hidden folder?
if yes, can it be simply deleted, or do I have to change entries in preferences as well?

After that I assume that I'll just have to copy my old portable folde into the new 1.8.8 folder like for Windows,  correct?
