I've tried many text/code/ide editors: vim, scite, eclipse etc...
This one is my current favourite:
http://www.sublimetext.com/
download the 1.2 version or the beta:
http://www.sublimetext.com/beta
As you can see from the changelog, it is a very active project.

As with all editors, it always takes a while getting set up, this one is pretty feature rich, but also has 'packages' to extend it.

This looks quite sweet. An AHK plugin would be nice.
Will try it.

edit: grrr

Sublime Text may be downloaded and evaluated for free, however a license must be purchased for continued use

Emacs can do most of what is described on the videos and it's completely free.

It also takes a bit of getting used to, though. :D

Yeah I know it's not free, but the guy says "There is no enforced time limit for the evaluation." So for the moment, i'll keep using the release or the beta.
If it keeps developing at it's current rate, it may be one of the few software purchases i make. Considering the amount of time we spend coding/scripting; a few bucks for a really nice piece of software is the last thing on my mind.
I've just been on a quest for years, trying to find an editor that i'm completely happy with.
So far it looks very cool; so i'll keep evaluating it. I hope it works out good for you guys too!

I like sublime text as well. Unfortunately I can't find a package that will highlight the syntax.

But anyway just wanted to let yall know if you choose the Lisp syntax highlighter (View > Apply Syntax Highlighting), it will at least color your comments as well as some random words and numbers to at least give your scripts some sense of readability.

I'll have to check this one out too, used emacs, VI, Vim, NuSphere etc., but currently hooked on EditPlus (also only free for evaluation, but no expiration of eval). Biggest factor for me is being sure it will manage projects and run on an encrypted thumb drive or truecrypt container so it's portable. Currently, EditPlus is the only one that I can do that with. NuSphere allows you to import and export project files so you can load them from a thumb drive, but the program itself has to be installed on all machines you use.

UltraEdit has U3 version (mobile) I haven't found an editor with more features but it has quite a learning curve and you need to invest time to make it suit your needs with macros, scripts (javascript) and the odd AHK tweak. But to each their own, what works for me might not work for someone else... Also not free but you can buy a lifetime worth of upgrades if you pay 50% extra or something when you do decide to buy it ...

I actually tried that, spent more time sending them bug reports than using the program, although it was really slick with all the built in features, then went back to EditPlus and TrueCrypt, still works fine. UE3 got buggy when switching form one machine to another, would forget my SSH and FTP settings.... drove me nuts.

Use EditPlus as a general rule (wrote a script to handle the nags after trial expires), but after trying Sublime Text, liked it.

a) I agree that it's a downer to not have syntax highlighting for AHK, and

B) I successfully run Sublime Text on a flash drive by simply copying the installed folder to the drive.

Here are a few links to start trying to make life easier:
Ctrl + scroll wheel to control text zoom level (like Scite)
http://www.sublimete...4&t=751&start=0

Using TextMate bundle for AutoHotkey syntax highlighting (threads):

Hopefully, with a little experimentation we can get highlighting working.

Here is a 5sec install guide for AHK syntax highlighting in SublimeText editor:

AutoHotKey.zip
<!-- m -->http://www.sublimete... ... .php?id=64<!-- m -->

unzip this into your user applications folder:
should be something similar to this>

C:\Documents and Settings\JOHN_SMITH\Application Data\Sublime Text\Packages\

All done. Ready to use.

If you need a free version of this GREAT editor, why not try the beta, found here:
<!-- m -->http://www.sublimetext.com/beta<!-- m -->

:O)

Nice;
This works;
Thank you very much for the update.

For anyone new to SublimeText, there's one more step beyond "All done. Ready to use."

Click View > Apply Syntax Highlighting > AutoHotKey

[edit] This step isn't required, I don't think, if you open the AHK file from the context menu.

great, now where is the setting for getting rid of the horrible (to me) black background and having a white one instead?!
oh yeah found some non black colour schemes under preferences/apply colour scheme. The spell checker (on this site not in Sublime text) keeps telling me I am typing colour wrongly. I am not. There is the uk way and the us way.
