Disable .NFO style



  • Hello, is there a way to disable the style when *.nfo file is opened?
    When I open *.nfo file, (but it is not for dos file, just has the same extension) notepad++ opens this file as OEM-US encoding. I want it to open as a UTF-8.
    And also affected a certain style, but I want to disable it. Just Normal Text style will be great.

    Do you have an idea?

    Summary: I want to open an *.nfo file as a normal text file



  • Is that so simple? Change file extension to .txt, make as you wish, change extension to .txt again.



  • Thanks for reply but it must be remained as *.nfo.



  • Hello telk5093,

    you can edit stylers.xml and langs.xml to comment nfo specific lines.
    look for the followng lines in

    stylers.xml

    <LexerType name="nfo" desc="Dos Style" ext="">
         <WordsStyle name="DEFAULT" styleID="32" fgColor="2E2E2E" bgColor="FFFFFF" fontStyle="0" fontSize="10" />
    </LexerType>
    

    langs.xml

    <Language name="nfo" ext="nfo">
    </Language>
    

    To comment the lines you need to select it and press strg+k which results in e.g.

    <!-- <LexerType name="nfo" desc="Dos Style" ext="">
            <WordsStyle name="DEFAULT" styleID="32" fgColor="2E2E2E" bgColor="FFFFFF" fontStyle="0" fontSize="10" />
        </LexerType> -->
    

    Restart npp.

    Disadvantage, if you update npp it will overwrite your changes.

    Cheers
    Claudia
