Some Alt Key Codes are accepted by SciTE (ie Alt248 " ° "). Many are not. Alt key codes, 1 through 10, 25 through 26. were not accepted by SciTe.
My solution was (in Win 10, 64 bit and Autohotkey set for Unicode 32):
Alt code Alt+26 (→) is not accepted by SciTE and results in " ? " . I did not find an encoding option in SciTE similar to the Notepadd++ ENCODING option.
Open a new, or previously written, script in notepad++ .
With a New script, I Changed the encoding to Unicode-8-BOM.
If it's an old script, I used the Encoding option "Convert to Unicode-8-BOM". (Not using the "BOM" option resulted in getting the wrong character for me.)
Save the script from Notepad++
The script, reopened in SciTE, will now accept, save, and execute the Alt code.
Example the script:
U_Var = Alt26 → and Alt4 ♦ and Alt6 ♠
Executing the script will show the message box with "Alt26 → and Alt4 ♦ and Alt6 ♠"
I hope this is of some use to someone.
