Re: [trinity-devel] TDE kwrite improvement (add the sort from kate->tools->sort)

This may not apply, but...

If David has carried over his previous Kate configuration files, or
did an upgrade instead of a new install, to avoid having to
reconfigure Kate with his custom settings (of which it looks like he
has a lot), then that could be why he has this sort feature and we

I always use previous configuration files myself and I have noticed
that sometimes features are dropped from the configuration files in
the newer version--but are still part of the Kate program.  If you use
the old configuration files the old features still work--if not they
disappear.  The same thing happens in reverse.  If you use your old
configuration files, any new features in the new version may not be
not available, though still part of the Kate program itself.

I have (and yes it is a lot of work) for many years merged my old
configuration files with the ones from a new version and have been
able to keep features that were dropped.  Infact mine is probably more
customized than his.

The reason I mention this is,  if the above is what has happened in
his case, it will be really hard for him to figure out where the
feature came from and for us to figure out how we could have it too.

I would like the sort feature also.
