Transcripts to SciTE4AutoHotkey Fix for AutoHotkey v2

hey everyone it’s Joe Glines here from the-Automator and today we got a really cool script a lot of you are switching to V2 which is a it’s a really good idea because V1 is deprecated and unfortunately when you go to use site for AutoHotkey the 3.1 version some people have some problems and conflicts and stuff and it just doesn’t work properly so we wrote a little program to help kind of standard as I said for you we also added some custom user profile settings that will help site be a little bit more enjoyable a little more
customized to you so stick around to the end and make sure you see those things see if you want them or not by the way we’re the largest Autohotkey channel out there we do two videos a week at least besides our other videos where we’re training people in our AutoHotkey hero Group which we do three hours a week on that those aren’t streamed to YouTube but anyway check that out if you’re interested now let’s go ahead and jump in here is this why don’t you show us does so the script as soon as you double
click what it’s gonna ask you is to haveadmin right because it’s gonna install certain things so the it’s going to ask you if Autoa qv2 is installed or not you can say yes or no to that if it is installed if it is already installed just click yes and it will not download the latest version and now when I hit yes because I have it and I was going to ask me if CipherHotkey 3.
1 is installed now this only works with 3.1you know later because that’s the v1 if you have it click yes if not just say no and it’s going to download it for you in my case I have it so I’m going to hit yes and now it’s going to ask you for the paths of them usually it’s going to be very good at determining where they are if the paths doesn’t do not look right to you just go ahead and click on browse and select where they are located in my
case AutoHotkey V2 is here I select the folder that’s it and you know the same for site once these two guys are correct you hit on fix and what it’s going to do is that it’s going to fix the site properties that’s the user properties and also is going to fixthe some issues that people had when switching platforms now as we’re changing those files it is telling you that the old properties were saved as platforms.
backup so in in any case if you want to go back to your original platforms file which I really doubt you still have a copy of it anyways and now the script is gonna exit and it’s done what it’s going to look like if I open site is that you’re gonna get a few different things here at the bottom your status bar is going to look different whenever you select some text is going to be highlighted in a specific way so every everywhere where you find the same text is going to be highlighted for you and some other little details
like at the top of the title bar so the title of the window is going to contain the full path of the file that is opened right now because the original site does not have any of those little details set up like that properties file to show them real quickly yes option user properties here right and this is extracted from my I have a crazy long big file is actually I went through it and said well what What would most people want and what’s most helpful so it’s mostly annotated also so it helps you understand and if you just
want don’t want a certain feature put the pound sign in front of that line and it’ll comment it out save it most of them are hot fixes so the second you do it it’ll apply sometimes you have to restart site but it’s really rare usually they’re they’re updated immediately that is correct so in any caseall of these thingsthere is kind of like a menu that you created is oh well the shortcuts you created a few shortcuts there for copy pasting on getting the help and so on yeah and the
context menu so if you write this is the one yeah that’s the one that I was trying to get this yeah this section down hereit’s not on the original site so we added a few things like copy the path to this fileshowing the white space the end of lines stuff like that that were not in the original content menu so we made it if you selected a bunch of text it’s really cool you can go you could say copy as RTF when you paste that like in your email it keeps the color you know yeah so when you’re emailing stuff to
people it has those colors and it’s just it looks so much nicer and easier to follow you don’t lose that this was a comment and this was real code right that is correct that is correct so in any case this is the only thing that the script does is just to help youhaving those things and well having those little details like for example usually when you close the last tab site closes completely we’re like why just leave me with an Untitled bio there and those kind of little details that usually are really annoying but now we
just fix them and this especially here show them because we didn’t Autos is fixed but yeah that properties of the the platforms right this is where you switch between one platform and anAuto so there are specific conditions for Sight to allow you to switch these guys the condition is that site must be installed on the same folder where ourHotkey was installed so whenever you do the installation make sure that for example if you have on aHotkey folder here where AutoHotkeys installed that’s where you’re
gonna install cite if you don’t do it that way what is going to happen is that when you click here you will not get any of these options you will only get the default one so if you see it like that just make sure that you know site is not in the correct location now that’s part of what this script fixes even if you have it in different location what the script does is that it gathers where AutoHotkeys installed and it’s going to try to fix those paths in the property files for you but I really recommend that you just
install site where AutoHotkeys just to not have that one problem so hopefully that helps we’ll put a URL up here for where you can download this script if this helped you out and you liked it please like the video it really helps us out a lot again so consider subscribing to us we’re the largest channel we’re constantly pushing out great things to help people hope you enjoyed that and guys have a great day cheers bye
