AutoHotKey Tidy or equivalent?
« on: August 05, 2009, 04:08:18 PM »
Right now I'm using Scite4AutoHotKey but I'm wondering if anyone knows of another free editor esp. one that has "Tidy" or equivalent for autoindent and syntax checking. Not to start a favorite editor war, but what are people using for AHK?

That ahk tidy script looks like it will do the trick.  :Thmbsup:

Not to start an editor feature war, but does it seem weird to anyone else that an editor doesn't have a hotkey to delete a line?  Or if it does, it's not documented? You sort of have to trial and error the thing.  In Scite based it seems like Control-L will delete a line like in MS Visual Studio, but I haven't found the secret in PsPad yet(I use that mostly for my web stuff.)  I've been selecting a line with Shift-End, then deleting with the Del key.  Is there an Easter Egg to just delete the line in one go?

Thanks guys.

I've been using it for so long that I don't recall the default hotkey but you can change all that here:

Settings, Program Settings, Key Map, Editor, DeleteLine

Vim :) There is a syntax file for Ahk as well. I am sure you can use one of the language files for Ahk indenting.

The PsPad developer must be a Delphi enthusiast.  They usually do ^Y.  I should have thought to try it.

I have to take a look at vim. When I was playing with Linux I tried vi just enough to see that it would be very powerful, once I quit ripping my hair out. :)
