I used to use Notepad++ until I came across SciTE4AutoHotkey v2 and found that much better for my needs :)

I currently use Notepad++ but this thread is making me want to start experimenting.

One thing I've found very handy, independent of whatever editor you're using, is to use an alternate file extension for your main AHK code.

For example, here is my main AutoHotkey.ahk file:
#Include %A_ScriptDir%\AutoHotkey
#Include AutoHotkey.ihk
This lets me do several things:[*:2pfkj8qq]First, all of my code can go in a dedicated directory, like "My Documents\AutoHotkey"
[*:2pfkj8qq]I can associate *.ahk files with the AutoHotkey executable, so double clicking on any of them automatically executes the script.
[*:2pfkj8qq]I can also associate *.ihk (short for "Include Hotkeys") files with my editor, so when I double click on any of them, up pops my editor.Really, I think it's the best of both worlds.
