UDL syntax tool runs out of gas

  • When using the Language (UDL) style tool, my selection or UDL stops hi-lighting after about 400 lines. After 400 lines, my code changes to a medium grey Courier font to the end of the file. Up to 400 lines, everything hi-lights OK. How can I fix this quirk?

    would you mind sharing udl and example file which confirms your reported behavior?
    What npp (debug-info from ? menu) and os version are you using?


  • Hi Claudia-

    Notepad++ v6.9.2
    Build time : May 18 2016 - 00:34:05
    Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : OFF
    Local Conf mode : OFF
    OS : Windows 7
    Local language: SharkBase (VP-Info multi-user)

    Briefly, I started again from scratch, and this time the hi-lighting covered the entire file (about 600 lines). I possibly made some kind of syntax error when defining my language, or perhaps a recent NPP update fixed it. I will never know which it was. Regardless, in spite of its defining shortcomings, it’s a useful tool with lots of potential. i will keep working with it for now.
