This "feature" screws me up, basically every time I use it. I want to be able to navigate around my disk and be able to open files, work on them a bit, and save them BACK WHERE THEY WERE TO BEGIN WITH, without having to go and re-set the project directories. "Save as" doesn't remember where I was either.

Just have the program remember where I was the last time I opened or saved any files that the IDE uses. Save this info in the registry or preferences or whatever Mac OS calls it. The way it works now I am always saving things in the wrong place because no other program in the world works this way.

I understand that this program is water under the bridge and unlikely to get a fix for something like this. But please please please baby please don't do it for whatever IDE you're doing for the next chip! Please!!!!!!

Not sure what you're doing on this front but you might want to consider extending Eclipse with a plug-in supporting whatever your assembler is going to be. I wrote a parser for SpinASM in Xtext/Eclipse as part of SpinCAD. That might also be a relatively easy way to get cross platform support.

+1 on the file directory preference saving feature, some time ago I done a lot of head scratching when writing an ASM program. I kept editing a program and it never worked, a lot of frustration and head scratching before I realized that my edited saves were going to the folder the IDE wanted to use rather than my own preferred folder, and yes, I have done this a few times before.

I thought I was just being a bit stupid Embarassed
