Questions Concerning Scite.

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post these questions.

1. When I use SciTE I want the default behavior to use spaces instead of tabs. The menu item:

Options -> Change Indentation Settings (Ctrl+Shift+I)

displays a small popup window which I can use to deselect tabs and use spaces. However, everytime I exit SciTE I keep having to change the setting. Can I make it permanent?

2. I have no complaint with ScitTE at all but my personal preference is to use "if" instead of "If", "then" instead of "Then" and so on. Can someone tell me if there is a configuration file that controls the editing behavior and what I need to do to change the settings?

Open the file C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTe\api\au3.api and the commands are in there

1. To change to spaces just run SciTEConfig and select the Font/Color tab. you will find the "Use Tabs" setting there. just uncheck. this will create the following entry in SciTEUSer.properties:

use.tabs=0

2. Depends what you are referring to :

- AutoComplete and the Propercase function use the au3.api file in the api sub-directory.

- Tidy uses the files in its own directory.

Remember that these files are updated every time with the SciTE4AutoIt3 and SciTE4AU3Upd installers.
