    • (IDE) Add bookmarks in the source text

      A way to bookmark one's place in the Source text panel so that one
      can quickly jump back to it. We propose to allow the user to set bookmarks in
      the source, with shortcuts to jump back to the most-recently set; the bookmarks
      would also be visible in the contents view of the source, and could be deleted
      again.

      • [IDE] Code-only searching in the documentation

        Add a check-box next to the documentation search box that would search only the code snippets in the documentation, and not the main text. Searches for 'in' would become useful, as well as many other English phrases that are also I7 code.

        • More control over colors and styles in Glk/Glulx

          Authors have repeatedly asked for more control over the styles used in
          the game. At a minimum, some way for arbitrary colour changes to be allowed -
          this is the one area where Glk/Glulx is behind the Z-Machine.

              All three platforms offer some choice of font, but they handle style and colour options differently, with Windows offering the least choice for now (being confined to the current system font, though at a choice of sizes). The source panel is currently being rewritten on Windows, so that we can eventually have elastic tab stops there (a feature
              newly added to OS X and Linux Inform); the new Windows source panel will be
              more configurable.

            • (IDE) Create a new IDE for ANDROID devices *VW*

              Given the rise of Android devices (phones & tablets) I'd like to see a new IDE created for the Android platform. At least for Tablets. This would allow for writing 'on the go' as ideas come to mind.

              • Why don't you try to build a international version?

                I suggest make Inform7 can use any language compatible.
                This version seem just can use English ?

                  This is a very large, very complex task. Some of the pieces necessary to support it will be done in the next build, but the whole of the project will not be done at that point.

                  A method for having the interface entirely in other language
                  (menus, messages, panels).

                    This hasn’t been a priority so far because it wouldn’t make the rest of
                    the application conform to another language. Different operating systems
                    have different idioms for localization, and given that the interface
                    contains relatively little text, changing only slowly, it’s probably
                    better to do this platform by platform. Some progress has already been
                    made on this for Linux.

                  • Hotkeys for commenting out selected code all at once

                    A contextual menu item, and hotkeys, for commenting out selected code all at once, by inserting "[" and "]" around the selected text. This is particularly important in that restyling large chunks of text - as placing the first [ will do near the start of code - is extremely computationally expensive in the interface applications.

                      We accept this proposal. It’s already being experimented with on OS X and Linux, and is planned for the new Windows source panel implementation.

                    • (IDE) Add the ability to search the document pane currently visible

                      A search function that would allow the user to search the document pane currently visible for a given keyword - for instance, the Actions pane of the Index.

                      • (Extensions) Enhance Extension versioning to indicate compatibility.

                        The existing model is to have exactly one version of a given extension on inform7.com. This means that, when an extension is updated to work with a newer version of I7, the older version is no longer available.

                        Similar to the way I7's download page (http://inform7.com/download/) shows all previous releases, perhaps it would be useful to include downloads for previous releases of extensions. Adding extension syntax (e.g. "Tested with 5T18 and 5U92") would make scripting this relatively easy.
