How to create your own Custom SciTE Hotkeys by hacking your SciTE user.properties file

Custom SciTE Hotkeys

Creating custom SciTE Hotkeys are a great way to speed-up working in SciTE!

I highly recommend you download and print out these built-in SciTE4AutoHotkey hotkeys

Hotkeys are a great way to be more efficient!  AutoHotkey makes it easy to create a hotkey for nearly anything however you can easily create your own custom SciTE Hotkeys by making a tweak to your user.properties file.

Below is the text I have in my user.properties file which builds in hotkeys without needing AutoHotkey.  You can find additional commands by going here.  Just don’t forget you are not limited to these.  In the video I show how you can create your own!  Make sure you do not have any comments within your list.  In my video I have them but I realized, later, that this causes issues.

btw- To be able to highlight text and move it up or down you can add
Ctrl+Shift+Up|2620|\
Ctrl+Shift+Down|2621|\
