The screen short are from notepad++ 6.2.2, http://download.tuxfamily.org/notepadpl ... imalist.7z
Or you can find one custom-made by me: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7098

one issue to resolve: see the line 36 or 38, the number is part of the name of variable, but highlight as a number

there is one annoying bug: identify the " if condition" as "if block"

The semisolution would be to define closing "Folding in comment" keyword, see

One potential solution would be to have "then" be the trigger word for if statements rather than "if".

you can import the language definition file and keep your npp version

for full working package (npp.6.4.5.bin.minimalist.7z and add some plugins, see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7098)
upzip the attachment, and double click the notepad++.exe will do.

minor update:
1 notepad++ to ver 6.5
2 add few keywords for syntax highlingting

if your old version works, you are safe to ignore this update.

Hi,

thanks for making this available.

I already have NotePad++ installed for other purposes. Which files do I need to take from your "full" setup in order to make it similar?

Solution?
Just copy into my existing notepad++-folder and keep any files with same name?


Thanks
Dagfinn

Maybe you can try
1 extract download/file.php?id=2113 and run the notepad++.exe (close all your running np++ first)
2 export the language definition of EViews as EV.xml
3 exit the notepad++, and launch your original notepate++, import the EViews language
4 copy the RunMeU.dll and NppTimestamp.dll to plugins sub-dir of your original np++

Good luck!


PS: I remember that the background color of np++ is global, you can adjust the color scheme.

For EViews 9

import the language definition file, and keep your npp version
EV9-npp.xml.7z
xml configuration file only
(2.6 KiB) Downloaded 453 times



if your old version works, you are safe to ignore this update (just import the language definition file, and delete your EViews 8 language definition in np++ ).
