Notepad Syntax

11 posts in this topic

In the installation package, there is Syntax highlighting addons for a few programs. But notepad is not included. Is there a download for this, or is it possible to make one?

thanks

Use forum search.

Here is one old post about Notepad++ syntax:

I think the new version already has au3 highlighting. I use a portableapps version [portableapps.com] and could have sworn it highlighted stuff -- perhaps it thought it was another language or something though.

Thanks for all the replies

that worked great Zedna

I'm on WinXP so I might not have the new one - Mine definitely did not highlight anything...

Remember that there are also several other editors available. Try Scite4AutoIt3 if you want a good editor with a lot of AutoIt specific functionality.

is there a way to make that the default text editor as well?

Never fear. Jos wouldn't miss that one. On installation it will become the default for AU3 files. and you can make it the default for other types yourself.
