# How to make multi-line AutoHotKey scripts more readable

autohotkey

I want to create an AutoHotKey script that generates this text:

==videoReview
aspnetmvc
IDCODE
TITLE
DESC
10:00
viewable online
[[

]]
3
english
extras::$url=nnn;$reason=


Using a similar tool called Texter, I define it like this:

==videoReview
aspnetmvc
IDCODE
TITLE
DESC
10:00
viewable online
[[
%|
]]
3
english
extras::$url=nnn;$reason=


Very simple.

In AutoHotKey, on the other hand, my script looks messy and is hard to edit, like this:

==videoReview{ENTER}aspnetmvc{ENTER}IDCODE{ENTER}TITLE{ENTER}DESC
{ENTER}10:00{ENTER}viewable{ENTER}online{ENTER}[[{ENTER}{ENTER}
{ENTER}]]{ENTER}3{ENTER}english{ENTER}extras::$url=nnn;$reason={Up}{Up}{Up}{Up}{Up}


Is there a way to make AutoHotKey scripts more readable than this by allowing for multiline format?

(besides this being a bit unreadable, it says hotstring maximum abbreviation length is 40)

Found out here that you can use parentheses for multiline text, this works:

::vidrev::
(
==videoReview
aspnetmvc
IDCODE
TITLE
DESC
10:00
viewable online
[[

]]
3
english
extras::$url=nnn;$reason=
)
