Hello,

In SciTE4AutoIt3 Version 1.71, when you press F1, the help don't opens if the file is not saved.

..and how is this a bug?

Since SciTE doesn't know the file extension, it doesn't know that it is an ".au3" autoIt3 file thus will not apply the settings that belong to AutoIt3 until you saved it.

When you use F1, it's to open AutoIt help file, not to open MS Word Help file !

I have tried to explain why you need to save the file first before F1 will work.

Guess I wasn't clear ?

Yes, but it's not logic because this editor is designed to be used with .au3 files. If I use this function, it's in a .au3 file.

Actually SciTE isn't designed for AutoIt scripts, it is a generic editor that provides differing functions based on the file type in use.

Correct, I have written the AutoIt3 lexer for Scintilla (used in SciTE) which does the syntax highlighting and folding, but SciTE is an editor that is used for many different languages.
