Hello

To reproduce the bug:  open Abbreviation Manager (Menu > Tools > SciTe Config > Other Tools > Run Abbrev Manager).

In the text box at top-left, enter your new abbreviation name and click button "Create".

In the editor that opens, if you put a pipe character in your code (which you need there to place the cursor), then it messes up how the entry goes into this file:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\AutoIt v3\SciTE\au3UserAbbrev.properties

it seems to split the entry (at the pipe) into two lines so what should be:

mb1=MsgBox(1, '', '|')

ends up as

')

mb1=MsgBox(1, '', '

The second file is:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\AutoIt v3\SciTE\au3.keywords.user.abbreviations.properties

I'm can't seem to reproduce it, but I am pretty sure that at some point while experimenting with this, this file ended up blank (so none of my abbreviations worked).

My current workaround is to write the code (with no pipe char), click the "Add" button (closes the editor), then click the "Edit" button, and put the pipe in.

Hi,

Found the problem - _ArrayAdd splits the input on the "|" as it thinks it is a delimiter. An easy fix - just change line #552 in your "AutoIt3 Folder\SciTE\SciTEConfig\AbbrevMan.au3"to read:

_ArrayAdd($aUser_Abbrev, $sAbbrev_Name & "=" & $sAbbr, Default, Default, Default, $ARRAYFILL_FORCE_SINGLEITEM)

That bug has been sitting there waiting to happen for a long time (I since I rewrote the Array library in 2014, you can read all about it in this thread) - obviously very few people ever use the Abbreviation Manager to add abbreviations with the cursor set character!

@Melba23 Thanks it worked!

@Nine All I did was change line #552 of this file:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\SciTEConfig\AbbrevMan.au3

 

Nice going, sadly it doesn't work for me :wacko:

NVM, I forgot I didn't installed the latest version of Scite.  I had downloaded it but never installed it. Sometimes, I can kick myself.  Now it is working fine...Thanks to you Lee.
