    Hi

    I downloaded and installed but I've only managed to get it to run once.

    If I restart the PC I can open HTML-Kit but once closed it refuses to open again.

    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.

      Hi,

      My guess is that something is slowing down closing of HTML-Kit to a
      point where it times out. This shouldn't happen under normal conditions.
      The last time I saw something like this, the computer was running
      multiple malware scanners.

      As a quick and temporary workaround, before reopening, go to the Windows
      Task Manager and end hktools.exe tasks. Please don't do this soon after
      exiting, but only before reopening, once a few minutes have passed.

      If this doesn't help, please feel free to post again or contact me by
      email (http://www.htmlkit.com/contact/) and we'll figure it out.

        It's still happening

        Here's what's listed in task manager after HTML Kit Tools has been closed.

        A couple of other things I'd like to see as I've used 292 for so long is this if possible:

        • In HTML Kit 292, when navigating through the folder structure on the right I can type in the first few letters of the folder to jump to it and then hit enter to execute an open action.

        I can then for example type in ".h" to jump to the .htaccess file if I am in the root directory ot "tem" to jump to the templates folder.

        • Another thing I'd like to see if possible is a command pane so I can see that files are being uploaded, downloaded etc while I hit CTRL+S or CTRL+U.

        ARe both of these possible with Tools...?

          I'm not sure if you meant to have something here but is 292 also running
          when this is happening?

          So there are some differences but you can press a letter inside the
          project window to jump to a file (or cycle through multiple files
          starting with that letter).

          You can then expand folders with the "+" key. Once a folder is expanded
          though, you can more easily navigate using arrow keys:

           Right - expand folder
           Left - collapse folder
           Up / Down - move up and down (pause at a file for a quick look)
           Ctrl + Up / Down - scroll viewpoint without moving
           Ctrl + Shift + Up / Down - drag items up and down
           Home / End - move to the top or the bottom

          Tools has two status indicators for this. A hint window shows up on the
          top right hand corner. It'll show where a file is being saved and/or
          uploaded. The other is a progress indicator on the status bar.

          Hope this helps.

            No, is not running at the same time.

            Thanks for the tip on the status of files but I was rather looking for a command window.

              Do you by any chance have easy access to another PC where you could try
              it just as a quick test? It's most likely a conflict related to that
              particular system or the software.

              It's something I could work on... Are you wanting to see a history of
              files uploaded more than seen the progress of each upload?

                I second the idea of a CLI window, it would be useful to have a tool like git bash built in then I would'nt have to have it running in the background where I sometimes forget to start compass watching the project folder for changes.
