How do I change the Keyboard shortcuts for the AutoIT editor (SciTE)?

Recommended Posts

Mr. Analogy

I want to make the Auto Complete (Show CallTip) appear when I press Control+SpaceBar (b/c this is the convention in VB and I don't want to have to remember it's different in AutoIT).

How do I change the defined keyboard hotkeys?

Try editing au3.properties from the Options menu.

Bad advice, per Jos below...


P.S. And please be careful not to double-post on the forum.

I looked in the au3.properties file but saw nothing about keyboard shorcuts or hotkeys. (Hence, nothing to change).

Look for lines such as:

Please never make changes to au3.properties as you will lose them all after an upgrade of the SciTE4AutoIt3 installation!

Always put your personal changes in SciTEUser.properties via the Options menu.

Changing shortcut can be done by updating these defaults as defined in SciteGlobal.properties in SciTEUser.properties:

# User defined key commands

All Options can be found in file IFaceTable.cxx which I have attached.
