Help with modifying .ini Language / Comment Lines

  • I have what is likely a very basic question, but I have been unable to figure out.

    My usage:

    Language: MS ini file (standard .ini config files)
    Comment Lines: # and !

    Goal: To remove ! from being used as a Comment Line

    • I would like to continue using # for comment lines; but not !

    I like how the Style Configurator has options to make comment lines show as italic font and with different colour for those lines. This is what I would like to continue working for the # comment lines but I simply want to be able to modify the language capability so that lines starting with ! do not show up as comment lines specifically for these .ini files.

    I have spent several hours over the past few days looking through the Notepad++ language files, specifically within the .ini file sections trying to understand how the languages work within Notepad++ but this modifying of language functionality is beyond my knowledge at the moment.

    Thank you for your time.

    this is part of the lexer which is hardcoded and cannot, as of now, be modified
    through setting changes.


  • @Claudia-Frank Thank you for confirming.
