Editing a File

To open a new file in the VLISP text editor, choose File New File from the menu bar. An empty editor window appears on the screen, and you can begin entering text.

To start a new line, press ENTER. The text editor does not wrap your text when it reaches the end of the visible text editor window, so everything you type goes on the same line until you press ENTER.

You can indent lines of text manually, but VLISP automatically formats code for you as you enter new lines of code. You can also copy text from another file and have VLISP format the block of text you add. See Formatting Code with Visual LISP for details on using the VLISP code formatting features.
