In SAS EG I would like the ability to highlight specific comments. My initial thought is it would be great if I could some how add or identify these specific types of comments by creating a file element in the Enhanced Editor Option/Appearance dialog box and apply formatting to identify these different types. Essentially, creating some user-defined comment types similar to the idea of creating user defined words.
For example, I typically have comments that start with the following:
2. To Do:
5. Q4 2016 (*Basically the quarter and year this change was made. For programs that run monthly I have M1 2017.)
I would like to be able to format these different types of comments so that each type can be easily identified. The current project I'm responsible for has been undergoing significant changes and it can be difficult to sift through the sea of green to identify these different types of comments.
To build upon this idea it would be cool to create my own comments types using the Add Abbreviation Macro and Enhanced Editor Keys functionality so that I could insert my comment types (To Do, Research, and Testing in particular) and when inserted they "picked up"/included whatever formatting I had assigned to them. I've created something similar for my program headers but the key would be the formatting - like all Testing comments are Fuchsai versus Research items that are black with a yellow background.
