Version 0.9.0 is available .These are the main improvements:

Completion proposals have been improved and now give suggestions based on the location within the quest file.
For example when you type in the QRC block all symbol variations are suggested instead of only the base one.

Quick fixes provider is now powered by an open source script to measure string similarity. This should be helpful in most situations with a misspelling and sometimes feels magical

Added some refactoring actions:

Also added many small improvements, among which a prompts that allows to select the Tables folder via os file explorer UI, and automatically write to settings.

Downloaded! :) I'm very grateful for this editor and your work to improve it. I hope others who've expressed interest in writing quests will also start to use it. It's really easy to get started!

An expression executes properly in DFU but the editor doesn't recognize it:

[code]give pc _reward1_ and _reward2_ and _reward3_[/code]

Source quest is Q0C10Y00.


I need to test this further. It isn't working properly right now.

I believe Daggerfall Unity parses it as give pc _reward1_ and ignores what comes after. I can't find this syntax in Tipton' documentation so it's probably an issue with the quest.

On the witch quest that uses it, q0c10y00, it worked in testing but in my own custom quest it didn't. Until I can test it more I can't say anything conclusive.

DFU implementation of give pc doesn't handle multiple rewards. This may be either a gap from classic or a quest that never worked.
See my mod code for examples of how to change various aspects of DFU: https://github.com/ajrb/dfunity-mods

Hey Jay can you rename JHTP0??.txt to not include question marks? I tried to update my local clone of your repository to test upcoming version of editor, but failed because this is an invalid character on windows.
