It's logical for all running variants to be identical in capabilities. One may have a multitude of scripts to compile - some using Directives, others not. And then even when using Directives there may be something wrong that would be much easier to fix in the GUI than searching, editing, saving, especially when one is in a hurry.

Also, one may launch the tool in CLI mode from a shortcut, a batch file or whatever means other than having the actual AHK script at hand; in this case the /forcegui parameter may come in handy if one forgot what parameters are being used for that particular script.

So my opinion is that the GUI should always take precedence and should contain all possible elements that can be tweaked through Directives or CLI. And that would require some careful refactoring, in order to help but not confuse the user, be them novice or expert.

Anyway, this is not an emergency or anything, and I got enough on my plate with all 17 kittens in the house, so can't promise any concept UI soon. Anyone else could try their hand though.

We are going to freeze development of the master branch at Beta 9 so that all the changes to date can be included in the next release of AutoHotkey 1.1. Any future proposed amendments should be created in a new branch.

@lexikos I have also completed amendments to the documentation in github.com/TAC109/AutoHotkey_L-Docs master branch. Do you want them pushed?

Hi TAC,
A quick note to let you know that I ran the same set of tests documented in a previous post with Beta_9 on both 1.1.31.01 and 1.1.32.00 — everything worked perfectly! And thanks for changing MPress to MPRESS. Regards, Joe

@JoeWinograd
Thanks for testing :thumbup:

@lexikos
If you can give me an expected release of AutoHotkey for Ahk2Exe inclusion, I can amend the version number in the documentation.

v1.1.33.00, although I currently have nothing else planned for that release. When the documentation is ready for release, submit a pull request - this improves the odds that I won't forget about it. :facepalm:
