After testing various schemes (themes) in the settings for the newest SciTE editor (v. 4.1.2), I discovered that I wasn't able to fully reset it back to its original colors (See snapshot). Specifically, after applying the "__SciTE4AutoIt3_Dark ==> Dark SciTE4AutoIt3 Color scheme."
The problem: The Line number column and the Output console do not reset back to their original colors.
The Solution: Delete or edit the user config file. You can safely delete the config file because it will completely regenerate on SciTE restart- with it's factory (out of the box) color scheme.
I also wrote a small script that will do it programatically: How to reset SciTE scheme in version 4.1.2.
I'm using SciTE v18.104.22.168 I think, and I find this very annoying (GIF):
I've searched around but found nothing that helped including this:
So the problem obviously is that when I go to a new line after "EndIf", it removes the tab which I don't want to happen.
Is there any fix?
I've tried to change some configs such as
Line 183: # Indentation Line 185: indent.size=0 Line 187: #indent.auto=0 Line 188: indent.automatic=0 Line 189: indent.opening=0 Line 190: indent.closing=0 Line 191: #tab.indents=0 Line 192: #backspace.unindents=0 strip.trailing.spaces=0 But nothing seems to get rid of this.
There is an issue, while using the function SendSciTE_Command by @Jos, if more than one instance of SciTE is open. Each instance of SciTE has its own DirectorExtension window, so we must choose the right one.
Here is a way to solve this:

I've noticed in several YouTube tutorials about AutoIt that every time the instructor types EndFunc a comment "<==(function name)" is automatically added. I understand that Tidy will do this after the fact but what I'm writing about happens in real time. Where's the setting for this? Thank you.
