[Solved] SciTE / User abbreviation - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was lucky enough to learn about the abbreviation feature after almost 14 years of using AutoIt trough this thread:

I tried to use the user feature, but I guess I am doing a mistake. The following files have been created, but if I type cwrgui nothing happens.

Am I missing something obvious here?

Thanks for that and I do not mean to be cocky, but I thought that the "Technical Discussion" forum is for "Technical discussions, betas, editors, help file, add-on tools, etc"?

It is, and whether this is a general support question or a "technical discussion" could be open to interpretation. However, as it appears to be a problem you are having and want assistance with, and as moving it here will put many more sets of eyes on it, I think it makes sense.

Did you close and restart SciTE? When I add new function tips, they don't appear until I restart the program

HurleyShanabarger,

As you have the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package installed , why not use the Abbreviation Manager you can find under <SciTEConfig - Other Tools> to create your abbreviations. This is after all why I wrote it!

If you use the Abbreviation Manager, which I do, make sure to fix the bug that occurs when you use the pipe symbol ("|") to set the cursor's position.  Otherwise, it may corrupt your abbreviation properties file.

TheXman,

That is fixed in the latest Beta from Jos - promise!

I tried this way and it did not bring the expected result.

After that I checked the files that you can see in the screenshots, so there was not really manual work involved.

So far it is not working for new abbreviations, but if I use the program to overwrite an existing one, this is working.

HurleyShanabarger,

I see you have a "|" character in the abbreviation - have you downloaded and replaced the current file with the Beta version of Abbrev Manager to which I linked above?

Yes, I was using the mentioned beta version. I just uninstalled AutoIt / SciTe and reinstalled everything and it started working.

Not sure what the issue was, as I recently reinstalled windows and everything from scratch.
