Customize SciTETips on how to Customize SciTE

SciTE is an amazing, free, IDE and text editor which has great functionality and is incredibly flexible.  I use it as an IDE for AutoHotkey however there ~100 other languages you can use it with.  Here are links to help understanding the documentation and Interface and here is a User Group.  There is also a subreddit here and StackOverlflow Q&A.

AutoHotkey IDE  / Editor

I use SciTE4AHK built by Fincs.  You can find an amazing thread here on the AutoHotkey forum.  The thread has been added to over several years now and has quite a bit of cool tips & tricks!  The AutoHotkey forum is filled with very knowledgeable and friendly people.  I highly recommend you review the thread and post questions you have to it or to me on my contact page  🙂
