Zenburn schema - user file extensions doesn't work

  • Hello,

    I have problem after reinstall Windows and install new Notepad++ 64bit
    I am using my own user extensions of files for which I want to have “Pascal” language activate
    I configured (as always) my user extensions - screen
    I works for all my extensions, except “pro”
    I am opening .pro files, but there is no ‘Pascal’ language but normal text
    I’ve tried everything, also use older versions, but without succes…
    Will be glad for support!

  • In the “Default” style, (of the Window in your screenshot) there is a language called “Visual Prolog” which already uses the ‘.pro’ extension. Although I don’t see that language defined in “Zenburn” (nor “Obsidian” - the style I use) I wonder if that’s causing a conflict?

  • thanks for good remark, I removed this language from styler.xml and now is not visible on ‘default style’ but still is not ok. Indeed it can be some kind of conflict. Anybody has another ideas?

    I’ve tested this and it seemed to work.
    I removed pro from visualprolog in default langs.xml
    and added it for python in obsidian theme.
    Restart npp and I’m able to edit .pro files as python files.

  • Indeed, it works perfectly!
    I didn’t know about langs.xml file and I edited only stylers.xml
    Thank You very much for help!

    BTW: During installation process, I choosed “Don’t use AppData” so I thought all .xml files used by NPP will be in the installation catalogue (portable version) but “AppData” catalogue is used by NPP and I have to edit .xml in this location
    Do You know how force on NPP do not use ‘AppData’ ?

    as I’m always using the zipped versions I don’t know for sure but I assume by creating
    a file called doLocalConf.xml it shouldn’t read from appdata. File does not have any content.
