Left Border of Editor Window

Richard, is it possible to make the left border of the editor window a bit wider, so the right-leaning cursor is easier to position for selecting all of a line with a single click?

Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

I know this is a Windows question, but I can't find any solution there. The cursor in the IDE edit window (and many other text editing programs) stops blinking after a few seconds of inactivity.

Re: Crypt-It

Hangman

Here's a link to download Hangman, which now uses the word list UNIXDICT. Thank you, Anatoly, for making me aware of this excellent file. I first used the alphabet button array in this program, which I recently used again to good advantage in Crypt-It. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3rbec7h2f3bj49p/Hangm...

Re: Crypt-It

Good job, Anatoly. But I'm curious about UNIXDICT. Is it a file or app that I can get ahold of and run under Windows? I have a 'Hangman' program that I would love to add dictionary lookups to. Any ideas?

Re: Laser cut visual effect
