Multiple Tabs / Windows open in SciTe ?

12 posts in this topic

Sorry, but I can't seem to locate the parameter to allow viewing & working in multiple panes at the same time. Come to think of it, I've never been able to locate this, and usually I just fire up ConText or :) even MS Word.

I've searched and that does not seem to be a topic here. I'm sure there is some sort of side by side viewing & working arrangement, but since SciTe requires you set things in files to get certain options, it's not readily apparent what that option might be or where or how to keep it. Maybe there is a SciTe noob post you can refer me to? I dislike going to a different editor to work in au3 files...even though ConText is just great for a general text editor and messing with my Train Sim files (can't be beat for that), it's lacking in AutoIt3 ... in my opinion.

Thanks for any help on this cold & snowy day here in Michigan... :)

Jos is the expert on SciTE if I remember right.

After all the time, dedication, knowledge and effort Jos has put into SciTE ... you should know for a fact!

Sorry all if I tend to wander in my fingered enunciation....Blame it on my age or early youth experience... :)

Yes...I want to be able to edit two or more au3 files side by side in SeiTe.

In Global Options, set check.if.already.open=0 to allow multiple instances of Scite.

Too bad this doesn't help if you want a split view of the same file...

So I am guessing that the image displayed using Python is the output box?

SciTE page

yes.... change the split.vertical and it will show up as in the picture:

split.vertical=1

Well, I suppose use the output pane similar to a hello world,..

just...
 

1. make a "hello world" program, with a blank string ""
2. minify the whole program to one line.
3. split the line in two where the quote begins, skip a line between them
4. on the blank line, paste your document
5. view document in output pane
6. delete code and edit in the original pane

hacky but for some it might be fun just cuz you can

 

(of course you could also just open two scite windows next to each other and vertically maximize them)

gclaborn,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

But did you notice that the post above yours dates from some 9.5 years ago? Please do NOT necro-post like this again - particularly when it adds virtually nothing to the original thread.
