Is there a utility that helps writing the file used by AutoHotkey?

Notepad! But seriously, what are you looking for? Syntax highlighting? A cursory search indicates plugins are available for Eclipse and vim. This is an answer due to low reputation. – alexsome Aug 17 '10 at 18:38
What features are you looking for in an Autohotkey IDE? – Hello71 Aug 17 '10 at 18:45
I am just looking for something that helps me writing the script without to remember the syntax. I just started using AutoHotkey, and I have to read all the times the documentation to remember the syntax. – kiamlaluno Aug 17 '10 at 19:14

Sure, AutoScriptWriter is bundled with the tool and it will record your actions and create the script for you.

Does it work also when I want to replace a string with another one? Most of the hot keys I use are triggered by a string I write, and that it's replaced when I press the space bar. – kiamlaluno Aug 17 '10 at 19:17
It will just record whatever actions you do and you can always modify the script it creates afterwards. It has worked well for me. Give it a try and see if that is what you are looking for. – grm Aug 18 '10 at 4:55
