We all have our favorite default AutoHotkey editor / AutoHotkey IDE to edit in however sometimes you want to switch editors. Not all editors make this easy! AHK Studio has a built in way to set it as the default editor (in the omni search type default editor), however you can’t easily switch it back to what was default before it. SciTE4AutoHotkey will ask at first-run if you want it o be the default editor however after that you’re on your own. It doesn’t matter if you’re using Visual Studio, Notepadd++, or Notepad as your default AutoHotkey editor. This just keeps track of your registry settings and allows you to, easily, swap them without actually monkeying with your registry!
AHKEditSwap is an AutoHotkey script that will keep track of your editors and make it easy revert back to previous editors. If you’re wanting to try out a different AutoHotkey IDE, use Edit Swap to easily customize your default AutoHotkey editor. Or, if you’re working on someone else’s computer, use AHKEditSwap to easily change back and forth so you can use your favorite AHK IDE and so can the default user!
