MapServer Studio uses Ace a high performance code editor for the web. The editor is customised for working with Mapfiles, with the features listed below.
The editor is configured to use highlighting for the Mapfile syntax. Keywords and Mapfile properties will be displayed in different colours.
Undo and Redo#
The File menu contains an Undo and a Redo button to help with editing Mapfiles.
The Shortcut keys CTRL+U for Undo and CTRL+SHIFT+Z for Redo can also be used.
The editor comes equipped with a code folding feature, allowing you to collapse Mapfile blocks like
LAYER....END. This can be useful to hide sections of large Mapfiles to concentrate on specific blocks.
