Yes, I have the same feelings about this editor for php since I also
discovered it some time back. I love the Xdebug implementation. You
might want to post these suggestions\questions to the 'Discussion
forum' at http://tswebeditor.tigris.org. This way you will be
communicating with the developer, first hand.

tsWebEditor Improvements

Message Hi there,

   I stumbled across this application a week or two ago, and am
absolutely thrilled with it -- I've been searching for a new text
editor/coding application for a while now, and I think I've found it :)

   However, I would like to make some suggestions for tsWebEditor:

* There is a problem involving [at least] the path to the web browser,
set via View > Settings > General [tab] > Path [frame] > Browser [text
box]; the implementation of this path in all (?) of the menu items in
Help bombs out if there is a space in the path itself, tsWebEditor
mis-parses it. For example, if the path entered into the field is
`C:\Program Files\FireFox\firefox.exe`, you receive the error dialog:

"Error"
Can not open link: [whatever]

Debug Info:
Filename: C:\Program
Parameters: Files\FireFox\firefox.exe
Last OS Error: The system cannot find the file specified.

I understand exactly why ts does this -- to allow flexibility in terms
of the addition of command line parameters, which is very cool. But some
sort of adjustment needs to be made; the path that I set was returned
from the "Browse" command button, which didn't apply any special
formatting (double quotes around the path, for example). Obviously not a
huge issue, but something nonetheless.

* If the program has lost focus and one of the open files has changed,
then focus is returned by clicking a different file along the Windows
toolbar, then the `A file has changed` dialog appears. Regardless of
your selection, the entry in the Windows bar that you clicked to return
focus will be given the 'clicked' visual appearance, but the active
document doesn't actually change.

+ Option to remove the 'Symbol' menu item in the taskbar menu.

+ Option to have middle-click close the currently open file.

+ Option to have CTRL+Tab simply toggle through open files, without the
current file listing that appears.

+ Option for a less obtrusive `file has changed` system -- perhaps an
icon in the Windows bar indicating the file has changed and a decision
needs to be made regarding it; selecting that file will subsequently
prompt for that decision.

* Change the hotkey for the File menu to the standard `F` rather than `i`.

   Please don't take these criticism -- tsWebEditor is one of the best
editors I've used to date; these are just things that stuck out to me.
