while your request gets implemented, you could use geany https://www.geany.org, you can edit, compile and run your FB programs, also it allows you to save the source in unicode if you wish.

Thanks, I will look into it!

geany is a multi language editor so the compile command is inferred by the file extension, if you load a *.bas file then the compile command will be for FB, however you may need to tweak it, for example if FB is not in the PATH.
if FB is not in the PATH then you can simply edit the compile command and add the full path to FB, you only need to edit the command once unless you want make further changes to it, [remember to have a basic file open in geany before you try to make changes to the compile command]
here's an example

I agree and its obvious a ton of work went in to it. However KetilO stopped developing this software years ago.
He was last active in these forums in 2010 (before I even new what a Freebasic was).
I (and many others) would be very happy if he came back and picked up where he left off, but I wouldn't hold your breath waiting.

Oh, I didn't know that (I've only started using FB this year), but I gathered from tiny pieces of information throughout the app that he stopped development (that slipped my mind for a moment their, but I was never 100% sure of it).
Still, would've been a great feature.

Hello Kot,
i am not sure about which dialogbox you are talking.
SaveAs dialog comes from WinAPI and is resizeable.
Have you this box in mint?

Hello Kot,
I think you are using an outdated version.
Please check out this package

That explains a lot... thanks.
How can I set path to fbc.exe? In the old version there was menu Options->path options, I can't find it now :/

Hello Kot,

setting up environment is really easy

1. start FbEdit
2. select menu [Options]->[Environment]
3. in second box from top (named "Paths:") you can find environment variables which should be set
4. click into "Value" field from line "HELP_PATH" and a explore button will appear (labeled with 3 dots) on right margin of "Value" field
5. click this button and a folder explorer opens
6. navigate to desired folder and close box
7. repeat for FBC_PATH, FBCINC_PATH and FBCLIB_PATH
8. leave environment dialog

On my system result looks like this

On my system it looks like this:

When I click on those 3 dots, I get the window with "desktop" (Pulpit in the screenshot) and "c:\users\myname" (Kot in the screenshot) and I can't get to other drives (I have FBEditMod installed on drive E:). Not good.

This looks like Windows' default folder-browser-dialog. So there should be an item "Computer" under "Desktop" (or however these are called in your localized version of Windows) which shows all the logical drives. Example:

My windows must be strange... Clicking on "Desktop" does nothing, when I found "Menu start" folder it says "access denied" :( and I must have done something with the "My computer" icon on the desktop, because it's not there :( On the other hand, in the old FBEdit it looks like it should:

In the https://svn.freebasic-portal.de/svn/fbedit/Package/ there's written "fbedit - Revision 84: /Package", but the name of the package is FbEditMod_Rev79.7z and the file size is the same.

I've downloaded the FBedit package you mentioned and it works fine:

It's either some issue with your system or with the user ;-)

If you really don't manage to get it working you can edit the paths in "FbEdit.ini" directly (close FBedit to do this).
