I think the GDL editor has become quite outdated. Nemetcheck borrowed gdl editor used for its smartpart looks much better. I would propose an easier writing in the gdl editor with commands indicators and color highliting, such as nemetcheck allplan. Or simple interface improvements as in notepad ++, codeblocks ... etc.

Smartpart editor Nemetcheck allplan. It has line numbering, hints for commands, style color for classic comands, information of parameter of command at the base of the editor.
A experiment I've made in notepad++, I've created a style language which folds commands, if operations, transformations etc....

I think such improvements for the gdl editor would be very good.
Could you please share the language style for Notepad ++. This would be great for the moment.

+1 GDL for editor improvements.
