"Small documentation glitches"
"Suggestions on documentation improvements"
"Please tidy up this f... doc!" (f for frightening...) Just joking! :wink:

Etc.

Suggestions please :roll:

[/url]Please continue to report typos in the documentation whenever you notice them.

Documentation typos
Useful forum links: New content since: Last visitPast weekPast 2 weeks (links will show YOUR posts, not mine)

OMFG, the AutoHotkey forum is IP.board now (yuck!)...I may not be able to continue coming here (& I love AutoHotkey)...I liked phpBB, but not this...ugh...

Note...
I may not reply to any topics (specifically ones I was previously involved in), mostly cuz I can't find the ones I replied to, to continue helping, but also just cuz I can't stand the new forum...phpBB was soo perfect. This is 100% the opposite of "perfect".

I also semi-plan to start my own, phpBB-based AutoHotkey forum (or take over the old one, if he'll let me)
PM me if you're interested in a new phpBB-based forum (I need to know if anyone would use it)
How (or why) did they create the Neil Armstrong memorial site (neilarmstronginfo.com) BEFORE he died?

Documentation typos

Why not, but a bit restrictive: when I suggest to add a link to a related page, for example, this is not a typo.

"Suggestions on documentation improvements" should make it
:-)
Is there another word for synonym?

I've corrected the items mentioned a few posts back. Thanks.

Again, in WinMenuSelectItem, "If this and the other 3 window parameters are blank or omitted" seems to be wrong.

It seems okay because there's an ExcludeTitle and ExcludeText parameter at the end of the parameter list, which makes a total of four window parameters. But maybe I'm missing something.

Oops, yes true. Sorry for that, I was too quick to report it!

In the manual on FileSelectFolder
is an example how to remove a backslash
FileSelectFolder, Folder
StringRight, LastChar, Folder, 1
if LastChar = \
    StringTrimRight, Folder, Folder, 1 ; Remove the trailing backslash
With RegEx, this can be simplified to
FileSelectFolder, Folder
Folder  := RegExReplace(Folder, "\\$")  ; Remove trailing backslash

Ciao

Just in case, to reflect the conditional:
FileSelectFolder, Folder
Folder  := RegExReplace(Folder, "\\?$")  ; Remove trailing backslash if any

Thanks; I've changed it to use that method.

Just in case, to reflect the conditional.

I omitted the question mark because it doesn't seem necessary; but maybe I missed something.

You are right, if the trailing backslash isn't here, the RE won't match and the string won't be changed. So my remark was useless.
