Autocomplete is operating in comment blocks.

3 posts in this topic

As I'm typing in comment blocks #cs #ce then autocomplete is operating.  Same on line comments.  think it didn't used to do this, i.e. only autocomplete in code, and that would be much better for me.  I've just updated to SciTE 3.6.0.

I have "SciTE Version 3.6.0 Aug  4 2015 17:34:27" and it's the full version with the long tools menu.  Now that I've looked at it again, the autocomplete is only partly functioning in comment blocks.  If I type normally, the outline of the autocomplete window flashes briefly for the first few chars of each word (until the word cannot be one of its set of words).  It only functions fully if I type the first two chars of a word in very close succession.  This is tolerable, where in the previous version it was autocompleting all the time making it impossible to type long comments.  (Autocomplete is working normally and perfectly in code sections.)

      Wanted to create an AutoComplete function like "Start » Run" functionality for both Urls and Files using SHAutoComplete function,  Unfortunately my knowledge is quite limited and so put the following together based on existing functions and snippets online.  While everything works fine, I'm not sure if I've written the function correctly and was hoping someone with more experience with WinAPI could look it over and let me know if I've missed anything.
      Thanks in advance.

      I'm having some problems with SciTe, when I copy and paste, select text, or etc., there's sometimes text blinking(not the cursor, but the whole text!), or black lines, they blink(like cursor do).

      When I reinstalled AutoIt all SciTe settings were left, and when I open up scite editor, I had same problem. (Btw., I use theme)

      How to fully uninstall AutoIT and SciTE, and install it again without leaving any settings or etc.?

      Solved: System restore helped me...

      Hello all,
      Long story short: I am updating a program I created many years ago for our Help Desk. I haven't used AutoIt in a while so I downloaded it again. Of course there were several script breaking changes so I opted to download an older version of AutoIt ( which worked. However when downloading the full Scite it produces the attached error when trying to compile my script. I need the full version of Scite to compile with options. Is it possible to download older versions of Scite or is there an easy fix for this issue? I have attempted reinstalling, uninstalling/rebooting/reinstalling to no avail.

      Weird story. Been using Autoit for more than a year now. But recently moved to a new machine, so did a fresh install, and suddenly I saw menus I never saw before in the editor.
      For example, I Always used to have: Tools>Compile and then it would compile my au3 code. Now, the tools menu has a lot of options but after pressing Compile it goes to a whole new screen specifically for au3 code to select more options, also it debugs my code, which prevents compiling if badly coded.
      Of course this is fine, but I would really like to recompile some old crappy code I wrote, regardless of the mistakes that are still in there, also I am really used to the old setup I had,
      so kind of not done, but how do i get this 'bad'  configuration back? Does it have to do with the file? What should I do with it....
