This plugin supports importing and exporting of scripts in a simple database, so they can be easily managed and shared with others.
New scripts can be added by using the import/export of scripts from this plugin, or manually added using copy/paste from anywhere you like.
None for the plugin itself, but of course you need to have AutoHotkey installed in the first place or none of your scripts will actually do anything!
After installing the plugin, you will find this in Projects View/Add-ins
The scripts added with this plugin are stored in a script called "master script".
The default location of the master script is: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\SDL Community\AhkMasterScript
In the description, if you click on 'here' you are able to choose a more suitable location if you wish.
Ahk scripts page
This page displays all the scripts which are available on master script.
After first installing the plugin, the grid is empty. As you add 'scripts' the grid will be populated.
If you hover over a row in the grid, a tool tip with the description will appear.
The options available are:
1. Add new script. After this action a new page will appear from where new scripts can be added.
2. After you select one or more scripts from the grid you can export them by clicking "Export" button.
A window will appear from where you can select the location where the script should be exported. Exported script will contain all the scripts selected from grid.
3. Remove selected script(s)
4. Disable scripts
5. Import scripts
6. Edit script
Add new script page
From this page new scripts are added.
Please make sure all fields are completed otherwise you will receive an error message.
In this step you can add as many scripts you want. After each script added a confirmation message will appear.
After this step if you select "Back" you'll be redirected to "Scripts page" and the grid will be populated.
The information for each script can be pasted in the box, there is no need to actually write in the area.
If the script you added is "Disabled" please check "Is disabled script" checkbox and make sure the content of the script is commented with the special character ";".
In this window you can import scripts, which were generated by Ahk Plugin and save them in your master script. To do so you need to drag & drop .ahk files in the grey area only .ahk files which were created/ exported with this plugin are recognized.
If a script which was generated by this plugin, is edited by the user, that script will not be recognized as an Ahk plugin script any more.
After files are dropped a grid will appear which will be populated with all the scripts available in the dropped files. Above the grey area files name will appear, if you want to remove a dropped file, you need to click on file name and the file will be removed together with the scripts from the grid.
To save the scripts in your master script select as the scripts from the grid (please make sure the checkbox is checked) and -> "Save scripts". From this page you can navigate back to main page.
