The Script menu appears in the menu bar whenever a Script Window is active, and can also be accessed by pressing the right mouse button within that window.
Most of the editing functions used in a Script Window can be found on the Edit Menu.
Suggest Choices invokes the auto-complete feature of the editor as if you had not typed anything yet. This pops up a list of every syntax element that is allowed to be used at the point in the script where the cursor is currently located.
Comment / Uncomment Selection toggles the commented state of the current line or selected set of lines. This is done by either inserting or removing // comment marks from the start of each line. If the cursor is on a Script Section definition line when this item is selected, the commenting of the entire section is toggled.
Note that the shortcut key for this menu item is Ctrl+/, which is easy to remember since // is the line comment syntax.
Another convenient shortcut to this feature is to click the mouse in the leftmost vertical margin of the script window:
Options opens the script options dialog box:
The section in the left half of this dialog facilities the choice of which color to use for each type of syntax element that can appear in a script.
To modify a color, click on the ellipses just to the left of an element type name.
Click on the + or - signs to the left of the ellipses to modify the bold and/or italic look for that element.
Click on Background to change the background color or Font to change the typeface or size.
Other options include:
•how many spaces to use for each indentation level (tab) at the left of each line in a script
•whether to auto-complete the parameter list for a function when the open parenthesis is typed
•whether to even offer auto-complete (the entire feature can be disabled here)
•whether to show syntax element descriptions within the suggestion list during auto-complete (these are not inserted in the script, just shown in the popup)
