SciTe Au3 abbreviations?

Recommended Posts

Sheri

While I'm not too experienced with AutoIt, I'm quite impressed with the editor capability. I've been trying to explore the various facilities in the SciTe edition included with the latest release of AutoIt (which is the only version I have). So I was reading about the abbreviations and tried to use the sample but nothing happens.

e.g. while editing a au3 script which is properly highlighted, I type in

but|

and press spacebar

and nothing happens.

Anybody know what's wrong?

Thanks.

The spacebar option is something that we added to the full version of SciTe4AutoIt3 and requires the installation of the separate installer.

Ctrl+B is the out-of-the-box option.

Thanks, I should have mentioned that had I tried that too without success.

I will try putting in the full version.

I renamed the existing AutoIt\SciTe folder then downloaded and unzipped SciTE4AutoIt3.zip into AutoIt\SciTe (retaining folder structure.) Didn't help. Says the zip has all the exe's files - do you think running the exe would do something different?

are you using a file saved with an .au3 extension ?

EDIT: Have you copied the abbrev.properties files to the correct directory ? (or just simply use the installer :) )

Thanks!

:) Working finally. Had by now installed with the installer with no joy. I thought it needed a vertical bar to say where you wanted the cursor to be after expansion. :)
