Opening any file ending in “.lsl” will syntax color the file.
To lookup documentation of the word under cursor, type Ctrl+c Ctrl+r. It'll switch you to the web browser of the function's documentation page at lslwiki.net.
Type Ctrl+c Ctrl+f to lookup a second reference site. By default the second site is http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Portal.
Comment Uncomment Code
Type Alt+; to add comment. Select the text first to comment out a block of code.
Type Tab completes the word to the left of cursor to one of LSL's keyword. The keyword also includes all LSL constants (such as “ALL_SIDES”).
Tip: If you are looking for a function that has a name “key” in it, but you don't remember how it starts, you can type Escape Tab on a blank line, then it will list all lsl keywords. Then, you can switch cursor to the completion panel and do standard search. This works for any function or event handler or predefined CONSTANTS.
If your cursor is at the end of the word “llSensorRepeat”, press Tab, then it becomes:
llSensorRepeat(string name, key id, integer type, float range, float arc, float rate)
The template set supports all all LSL functions.
You can have your vector types colored by their own value. This is useful when you work with colors often, such as particle shows, dance floors.
To color, select a region, then pull the menu [LSL ▸ Color vectors in region], or type Alt+x xlsl-color-vectors-region.
To view a colored vector that's too dark, just select the text.
Convert RGB Color Format
You can convert RGB color values between hexidecimal format and LSL vector format.
For example, if your cursor is on the word
#cc90ff, then type Ctrl+c Ctrl+g or
Alt+x xlsl-convert-rgb, then it'll become
<0.8000,0.5647,1.0000>, and vice versa.
If you need a color palette, and their hexadecimal values, type
Copying to Second Life
To copy the whole file content, type Ctrl+c Ctrl+c.
