Scite F1 link to autoit help file

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've installed Autoit on several PC that I use.

On the latest, the automatic link from a key word in scite to the autoit help file for that topic doesn't work [press F1 and nothing happens].

I've tried the full install and the self-extracting archive, with no success!

Any pointers please?

Thanks,

William

I think you also need to install the AutoIt Scite Editor ,SciTE4AutoIt3.exe. It contains tidy, obfuscator and lots of tools.

Yes, I tried that. Scite runs happily, and so does the help file when launched in its own right. It's the link that's broken.

Is there a manual setting that can be configured?

The only "link" I know is in the au3.properties of Scite (via Menu options) - there is a region

# Commands to for Help F1

#~ command.help.$(au3)=$(CurrentWord)!$(autoit3dir)\autoit.chm

#~ command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=4

command.help.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\Autoit3Help.exe "$(CurrentWord)"

command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=2

$(CurrentWord) looks like something for the context thing. Maybe worth checking?

Thanks. Oddly, when I came back to it after a shut-down and re-start later, all worked OK!

Ain't windoze wonderful?!

I'll have a look at the above, though, for my edification.

William
