SciTE Settings

  • Reuse Single Instance (open new files in same scite instance):
    • check.if.already.open=1
  • Set window open position and size:
    • position.left=20
    • position.top=615
    • position.width=730
    • position.height=435
  • Trim down the left margin area
    • margin.width=6
  • Set default file extension to .txt
    • default.file.ext=.txt
  • Add .txt and .sh to source default extensions
    • source.default.extensions=.h|.cxx|.bat|.txt|.sh
  • Show full file path in titlebar
    • title.full.path=1
  • Add more buffers (how many tabs you can open in scite)
    • buffers=20
  • Trim tab size back to 4 as 8 is too much for me
    • tabsize=4
    • indent.size=4
  • Turn off automatic indent (it annoys me)
    • indent.automatic=0
  • Set Open File dialog to start in directory of current file
    • open.dialog.in.file.directory=1
  • Change Open File Filter to 'All FIles' instead of 'All Source'
    • Find the open.filter setting (which is an array), move the '$(all.files)\' entry to the first item in the array (above the 'All Source|$(source.files)|\' entry)

There are many more options which can be set and more description to each of the above provided on Scite's Online Manual. I've also attached my full SciTEGlobal.properties file just in case I missed some items.
