Shortcut to wrap strings in #{}

In Ruby and CoffeeScript, selecting text inside a double-quoted string ("") and hitting # should wrap the selected text in #{}. TextMate does this and it's such a timesaver. 


Scroll bar malfunctions on short files

Daniel Azuma 7 years ago • updated 7 years ago 2
Build 2051 on Mac OS X 10.6

Open a short file that doesn't "require" a scroll bar. (That is, the scroll bar appears to span the entire height of the pane.)

Attempt to drag the scroll bar. (Either up or down-- it doesn't matter.)

This causes the pane to "scroll" past the end of the document, such that the entire document is above the viewport. At this point, it looks like the scroll bar is in an inconsistent state. It is at this point not possible to view the document any further since the entire document is out of the viewport, and although you can continue to perform edits, the scroll bar malfunctions from this point on and you can no longer use it until you close and re-open the buffer.

I have not tested later dev builds with the different scrolling behavior, and I do not have "smooth scrolling" turned on.

Should not be necessary to have both Minimap and vertical scrollbar.

John Hind 5 years ago 0

The minimap, if selected, should replace the vertical scrollbar. Only minor enhancements would be necessary to give the minimap all the functionality of the scrollbar and this would save space and look neater. If the minimap is not selected, then the normal scrollbar should be shown instead, but there should never be both scrollbar and minimap visible.

What Credentials Are Needed to Become an Insurance Investigator?

iamerincuddy 4 years ago 0
Insurance investigators research and verify claims to make sure no fraud or cheating is involved. They search records and databases, conduct personal interviews and inspect damaged vehicles, property and buildings. They also write reports of their findings and cooperate with other investigators and law enforcement professionals. Although investigator jobs often require only a high school diploma, many hiring managers prefer candidates with relevant work experience or education. Some investigators must be licensed.

High School
Insurance companies usually require a high school education or the equivalent for insurance investigator jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Take speech classes or join the debate club in high school to develop the interviewing skills you will need as a future investigator. Take courses in English and writing to prepare for the report-writing component of an investigator's career.

College Training
Some insurance companies prefer to hire investigators with college degrees, although no degree is mandatory. The desired degree varies with the type of claims work. For example, an engineering degree is useful for investigating claims in factories, while an accounting degree equips you to investigate business fraud. A bachelor's degree in criminal justice is another path to the job of insurance investigator. A criminal justice program provides a legal background plus the necessary skills in research, investigation and critical thinking.

5 Insurance-Buying Mistakes to Avoid

Marina Zimmer 4 years ago 0
Buying insurance can be confusing, but when the unexpected happens – a house fire, a fender bender or a broken bone – it's a relief to know that some of those financial losses will be covered. But how do you know how much coverage you need? And what questions should you ask before buying a policy? Many consumers aren't sure. Insurance coverage is far from one size fits all, so here's a look at mistakes some consumers make when buying insurance.

1. Assuming insurance is out of reach. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 48 million Americans had no health insurance in 2012. And about 30 percent of U.S. households have no life insurance, according to LIMRA, a worldwide research and consulting organization for insurance and financial services. In some cases, consumers skip insurance because they think it's out of their budget. Often, that's not the case, according to Marvin Feldman, president and CEO of the LIFE Foundation, a nonprofit organization that educates consumers about financial planning and insurance. The LIFE Foundation collaborated with LIMRA on the 2013 Insurance Barometer Study, which found that the average consumer thinks life insurance is three times more expensive than it actually is. "[Consumers are] not researching it to determine what the cost is," Feldman says.

When buying health insurance or property and casualty insurance, ask about potential discounts. "Two-thirds of consumers don't realize they can get financial help if they buy their own health insurance, and they can get financial help if they go and buy in these health insurance marketplaces," says Lynn Quincy, senior policy analyst with Consumers Union, a division of Consumer Reports. "You may be way overpaying if you don't investigate this possibility." While health insurance discounts are often income-based, homeowners and auto insurers offer discounts for everything from being a member of groups like AARP, to being a good student or a good driver, to having a home security system.

2. Relying on assumptions or outdated figures. Changing economic conditions mean you might need more insurance coverage than you had in the past. Take life insurance. In the past, consumers might have based their life insurance coverage on their current income, but "if something happens and you're no longer around, you need more capital at work to provide the same income [to your beneficiaries]," Feldman says. Disability and long-term care insurance are even more complicated than traditional life insurance. "For disability, do you want coverage that lasts forever? Are there health issues in your family?" Feldman asks. "That's where you need to speak to somebody to get some guidance."

In the case of homeowners insurance, your home could be underinsured if you've renovated or if the cost to build a home has increased due to higher material costs or other factors. That's why experts recommend reviewing insurance coverage once a year to make sure it still fits your needs. Talk to your insurance agent if you're unsure.

3. Shopping on price alone. Comparing insurance policies can be confusing, but resist the urge to simply choose the policy with the lowest premium. Consider the company's reputation and the coverage you'd get for that premium. "As a general rule with health insurance, the higher the premium, the lower the amount you pay when you go to the doctor," Quincy says. Private health insurance plans must provide coverage examples showing what your estimated out-of-pocket costs would be for, say, having a baby or managing Type 2 diabetes. Some examples might not apply to you, but they can help you compare plans and see how much you might pay in coinsurance and copays.

"Make sure you're shopping apples to apples and getting quotes based on the same coverage that you have," says Lori Conarton, a spokeswoman for the Insurance Institute of Michigan. Your property and casualty insurance may not cover things like food spoilage in the event of a power outage or stolen electronics worth more than $1,000, so you may want to purchase extra endorsements to cover those possibilities, she adds.

Color-coding file names in the sidebar dependent on last modification time

Dragan Espenschied 6 years ago 0
The Kate text editor for KDE uses a similar layout of the sidebar, displaying a list of files. Based on their last modification time, the files get different background colors. The most recently edited gets a quite bright background color that fades when edits are made in other files. This is very handy to quickly the spot the two or three files inside a project that need editing today.

Select text typed since last operation

Brian Vito 7 years ago 0
A command that selects the text just typed in (since the last mouse click or command) like ESC in Smalltalk-80, sam or acme or pressing both LEAP keys together on the SwyftCard or Canon Cat.

Have all the "find" or "goto" functions temporarily overlay or replace the sidebar content.

Look at Word 2010 for Windows to see a good example of find with provides results with good context.  This should improve the useability of "find" and "goto" commands while retaining maximum buffer space.
