The Script Editor in AWI v12.1 has almost all features from the JUI. These features are still missing:

  • Highlighting of all instances of the selected word
  • Command-Completion (Ctrl-blank) does not include the syntax description from the documentation anymore
  • Includes (JOBIs) don’t open inline but in modal dialogs. This is especially inconvenient when you want to analyze code from nested JOBIs
  • The Variable Picker is missing in the Script Editor, but it is available in many other places e.g. the Archive Keys.


This idea originates in this comment by @elmph01.


This idea is included in the list of Java UI features that are missing from AWI.

@CA according to 01176238, the Variable Picker is also not available in the Variables tab.

The improvement of the script editor would increase the acceptance immediately. Big thumbs up for this idea!
