This is not a question but a suggestions post. I feel like the HDL text editor should really get some "quality of life" improvement ideas from Visual Studio, like Intellisense:
- real time checking of language context for errors and highlighting them,
- automatically pops a list of available variables when you are typing
- you can quickfill by selecting an item from the list and pressing tab
- Selecting a variable highlights all instances in the text editor
and there are probably a dozen things, which I can't recall right now.
Have a nice day!
I like your suggestions.
Your last one, though, is already there. Select any text, like a signal name, and the signal is highlighted everywhere. I use that all the time to see signal connections in instantiations.
