    Hello, is there a shortcut to comment several lines at once? and is there a
    shortcut to duplicate a line of code?

    Adding a block comments functionality to the Code Editor is planned for next year. For details see Uniface Roadmap May 2022.pdf that can be found on the page with the Uniface Roadmap.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Michael,

    Large blocks / chunks of code - the lazy mans approach to commenting out chuncks of code:
    if (2=1)
    <x lines of code later>

    For the latter question:
    <home><shift end><ctrl+c><ctrl+v>
    I have seen some editors do it in 1 keystroke <ctrl+<something>>
    If you really want to play with this - get into the keyboard translation table
    and simply add the "one keystroke" you want and map it to the sequence I
    outlined above....

    Even better, use precompiler directives so the code isn't compiled, e.g.

    #ifdefined UNCOMMENT
    <x lines of code later>
