Crimson Editor

I know everyone is in love with SCiTE.

I'm not, because I can't change the font to what I want.

So I switched to Crimson Editor.

Just like SCiTE, you can attach tools to hotkeys.

Eg: Compile, run script, syntax check with au3check, etc.

It also has syntax highlighting.

Problem is, that the autoit3.key isn't up-to-date.

Functions like InetGet aren't highlighted.

@JdeB:

I saw your name in the autoit3.key file.

How did you create the file?

You didn't create it by hand, or did you?

I think I can generate the file myself, if I knew where the info is that has to be extracted.

Keywords, macros, functions.

Edit:

Never mind. After studying the file, I see that it ain't that hard.

Edit2:

Better yet. If you check the docs-v3.0.103-src.zip, you'll find the up-to-date file.

Perhaps too easy in Scite?

Control and mouse to increase or decrease font size.

Ctrl+F11 to toggle override font.

I want to change the default font to Courier New, size 10pt.

And I want it to keep that font.

Scite Font and syntax highlighting Colors

Add these to the "User Option File" when you want to customize Font or color settings:

### The default configuration sets Scite to use monospace font.

### and the default font type/size:Courier New,size:10

# Start in Proportional font:

font.override=

# To change the default font add this:

font.monospace=font:Courier New,size:12

### these are all the definitions for all different types of code color settings

### you can customize them all if you want.

# White space

style.au3.0=fore:#000000,$(font.au3)

# Comment line

style.au3.1=fore:#009933,italics

# Comment block

style.au3.2=fore:#669900,italics

# Number

style.au3.3=fore:#AC00A9,bold,italics

# Function

style.au3.4=fore:#000090,bold,italics

# Keyword

style.au3.5=fore:#0000FF,bold

# Macro

style.au3.6=fore:#FF33FF,bold

# String

style.au3.7=fore:#9999CC,bold

# Operator

style.au3.8=fore:#FF0000,bold

# Variable

style.au3.9=fore:#AA0000,bold

# Sent keys in string

style.au3.10=fore:#FF8800,bold

# Pre-Processor

style.au3.11=fore:#F000FF,italics

# Special

style.au3.12=fore:#A00FF0,italics

Nope I can't make it work.

I get Arial as the default font.

In the SCiTE Global properties file, I have this:

if PLAT_WIN
    font.base=font:Verdana,size:10,$(font.override)
    font.small=font:Verdana,size:9,$(font.override)
    font.comment=font:Tahoma,size:10,$(font.override)
    font.code.comment.box=$(font.comment),$(font.override)
    font.code.comment.line=$(font.comment),$(font.override)
    font.code.comment.doc=$(font.comment),$(font.override)
    font.text=font:Verdana,size:10,$(font.override)
    font.text.comment=font:Verdana,size:10,$(font.override)
    font.embedded.base=font:Verdana,size:10,$(font.override)
    font.embedded.comment=font:Comic Sans MS,size:10,$(font.override)
    font.vbs=font:Lucida Sans Unicode,size:10,$(font.override)
    
   # To change the default font add this: 
   font.monospace=font:Courier New,size:10
   font.override=

And in the user options file:

# To change the default font add this: 
font.monospace=font:Courier New,size:10
font.override=

So I'm staying with Crimson...

font.monospace=font:Lucida Console,size:9

is the line in my user properties file. Are you sure you don't have the alternate monospace font turned on [CTRL+F11]?


Who else would I be?

The original SciteGlobal.properties file looks like:

font.monospace=font:Courier New,size:10
font.override=$(font.monospace)
This is to make it start with Courier New 10.

When you change to : "font.override=" then it will start with the defined proportional font defined with:

font.base=font:Verdana,size:10,$(font.override)

I know is somewhat confusing but theres not much i can do about that.
