Java highlighting seems broken
After many years of disabling Java, I finally switched it on in Notepad 7.8.5; but the highlighting I’m getting is very minimal.
All it seems to recognize are strings, comments, numbers and operators: https://imgur.com/5eiC0x6
I tried different styles, but that didn’t help. (Other languages work just fine — and I did restart after activating Java.)
Is that all there is, or what could be going on here?
The best syntax highlighting in the default color theme))
In case you are using the default style and still have issues seeing all tokens formatted, then do
start npp (it will recreate it from stylers.model.xml)
I did delete the stylers.xml file (and NPP did create a new one upon restart), but the styling still looks the same…
Ok, I figured it out…
Turns out that the langs.xml file in my profile folder was seriously outdated. Many languages (among them Java) were missing, and once I’ve updated it with a new version I am now getting proper highlighting of Java.
