Altho I don't have a recent version, I'll chime in that it seems TMW is
just going out of their way to create animosity amongst long-time users.

Again, why do users seem to continually have to justify their choice of
how to use Matlab to TMW to be able to keep existing functionality
whether that is in compatibility in function interfaces/capability, look
and feel or the development environment?

I would argue development efforts should be concentrated on _real_
enhancements and bub fixes, not on futzing around w/ the interface and
certainly not on gratuitously removing features and/or capabilities.

For the specific question of editor functionality, people develop their
own work habits based on many factors--choosing to constrict them to
some preconceived notion of how they should use the editor is ludicrous.
