Syntax highlighting

  • Hello,

    After one of the notepad++ updates the syntax highlighting partly stopped working for me. I’ve set up files with .xml extension to be opened in notepad++ by default, however, when I double click such file, it’s opened with no syntax highlighting (the file is being recognized as JSON file). When I click right mouse button and choose “Edit with Notepad++” the same file opens and syntax highlighting works for it.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • Hello @T-Help,

    afaik, this was a problem with previous version of npp, current version shouldn’t have this issue anymore.
    Which npp version do you use? Can you post the debug info (available under ? menu)


  • @Claudia-Frank:

    Thank you for the information. I’ve updated the notepad++ however the problem didn’t dissapear. I’ve closed all tabs/second view window and then closed the notepad++. After that it works like a charm :)

    Have a nice day!
