SciTE open new page

Recommended Posts

jaylweb

I've been searching Google, the AutoIt forums, and the AutoIt Wiki to figure out how to set SciTE to not open the last session. I want SciTE to open a new file. I don't want the last X number of files that I had open when I closed to be re-opened. I found a site online that talked about commenting out save.session=1. I changed it to #save.session=1 and that didn't work. I tried setting it to save.session=0 and that didn't work. (Closed and re-opened SciTE each time I save the new setting.) I could have sworn I had this fixed a long time ago, but haven't had AutoIt installed on my PC for about a year or so. I am running the latest version of SciTE and I downloaded the full version from the AutoIT site.

SciTE

Version 2.27

Any help is appreciated.

jaylweb,

Adding save.session=0 to the User Options File (you open it through the <Options> menu) opens a new, empty SciTE for me. :mellow:

I added that to my SciTEUsers.properties and saved, closed SciTE, reopened SciTE, and it didn't work. The files I had opened were reopened. How do you have it set in global options? 0, 1, commented out?

jaylweb,

It is actually set to save.session=1, but what you have in your Global options is irrelevant as the User options version will always override it. In fact you should always make changes by adding to the User options rather than changing the Global options as otherwise you will lose your personal settings when you update. :)

We will have to wait until SciTE guru Jos shows up - I will PM him to make sure he does. :mellow:

The solution works fine for me as well.

There is no need to update SciTEGlobal as SciTEUser.properties overrides that.

You edited SciTEUser via the Menu options in SciTE?

Wow. It helps when I look at what else is in my SciTEUser.properties. :mellow: I had added the following a while ago as part of a PHP extension enhancement. It explains why my changes weren't taking effect. :)

# Saves the session for next time it is open.
save.recent=1
save.session=1
load.on.activate=1

Should I set all of those to zero or only the save.session one? I'm not 100% sure what the other two lines are for. I think save.recent is for the recent list.

In fact you should always make changes by adding to the User options rather than changing the Global options as otherwise you will lose your personal settings when you update. :)

So all of the lines that I uncommented for various extensions, I should copy all of them to the user options file? I made several option changes as well. I guess I would hate to lose them all during an update. Edited by jaylweb

jaylweb,

Glad we got to the bottom of it! :)

Those are the default values in the Global options file, so you can delete them if you wish. :mellow:

Yes, you should not change the Global file, just add the lines you want to change to the User file with the new value. You can also add to the User file - I have a lot of functions in there to run additional utilities that I have written from the <Tools> menu within SciTE.

Here is my Global file which I have not amended it shoudl be the "clean" version. I suggest you use a comparator (I use WinMerge) to note the differences to yours, add the changes to your User file and then replace your Global file with this one. I have had to add the .txt to get it to upload - you will need to remove it before using the file. :)

Good luck. :)

Thanks Melba23!

I used Notepad++ with the Compare plugin to find the differences and copy to my user options. Much appreciated.

This is much better now. Now, I only wish SciTE had a close button on each tab like Notepad++. Oh well. :mellow:

I use my middle mouse button to close the tabs in scite, easier than having to navigate to a smallish "x" in the corner.
