3.5.5 Editor Menu Auto-Show Parse Messages Auto-Load Error File

If this option is checked, POVWIN will automatically load a file, in which a parse error has occurred, into the editor (or select it if it's already loaded), then place the cursor on the line and column of the offending code.

Note that if this option is on, and the message window was displayed automatically (see 'Auto-Show Parse Messages' below), it will be closed automatically rather than being left open. The text describing the error will be displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the window. Note that, occasionally, if the error occurs inside a macro, the displayed line/column for the error will be wrong.
