    (IDLE pythonGUI) Unable to edit above text after shift+enter


    Basically in the shell I will wright something for example.

    print ("Hello")
    *shift+enter x2*

    And the continue, but what I am annoyed by is I can't edit anything above it now, it just makes the windows error sound, that sounds like some thud.

    I tried clicking after the code, or using the arrow keys up. I tried the undo button, I am using python 3.1.

    Someone mind helping?

    Change the default sound from "thud" to one you enjoy hearing.

    Seriously, though.

    Use emacs to edit source code.
    Use emacs shell buffer or python evaluation mode to run python.

    Do not use idle.

    If you are a beginner, the IDLE IDE is fine.
    If you're an academic, use EMACS.
    If you have an iPad, use the Pythonista IDE.

    I would say I am at least above the beginner.
    I just use the IDE on Linux for testing a line, but I write programs in notepad++ on my Windows computer.

    I've never use notepad++

    Does it come with a symbolic calculator?

    Rectangular region mode?

    Diary?

    Deep undo?

    Kill ring?

    Buffer manager?

    Multi-window/display?

    Debug mode?

    Tetris?

    Syntax highlight/indent for a whole lot of computer languages?

    Editing keystroke macros?

    The list runs on and on for emacs, because it's fundamentally a lisp interpreter and over the years people have extended it.

    Goodness. I don't think it has allll of that.
    I can't list specific features, I don't use too many of that. But now I have to check into emacs.

    Otherwise notepadd++ was recommended in a book I am reading, and an online tutorial called "Learning python the hard way" Though the tutorial strongly says to use linux, I sadly I choose windows for familiarity with with all the software I will use.
