SciTE optional setting storage

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

So been programming the AutoIt with the SciTE for around 3 years now. There are things I like and things I do not like. Most of these things are optional so I can pick and choose. So I turn off the things that I do not like, and they go away. Until I restart the SciTE, clearly I do not know what I'm doing there must be a way to save the settings.

Changes I make are:

  • Hide code blocks / fold margins, fuck that shit I wanna see the code and I program until exastion the last thing I need in my 13k line script is code cloaking it'self because I miss-clicked.
  • The tool bar, not that big of a deal but I don't need it and I lose cycles each time I click it by accident. Also causes me addition time loss when I hit the close script, then I get to navigate back to the source file and launch it.
  • There is this new thing where error messages show in the source and make it harder for me to study the code, I don't like that but I haven't spent the time to figure out how to change it. and it's not even worth it until I figure out how to save the settings.
Basically I just want to know how to save the SciTE settings that I mentioned above.

I appreciate your time, I can apologize for not figuring this out myself, I just feel so busy and it would be helpful to know where to go. lol, I'll laugh if you tell me to goto hell.

Thank you, I want to save the options I change in the SciTE so that it remembers my settings.

I suppose it's time I google this.

Usually you'd make the changes in the SciteGlobal.properties, or as a better plan in the SciteUser.properties file. The user properties file is a better choice because it won't be overwritten by a reinstall or upgrade of Scite or AutoIt. All of the settings can be found here, in the Scite documentation.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I found the global options file under the SciTE options menu. I was able to change the settings so that they are used each time I load SciTE. Thank you. Awesome BrewManNH, that is how I did it and you are telling me how it can be improved thank you!
