Problem with User-Defined Language userDefineLang_AHK.xml



  • I had been using userDefineLang_AHK.xml with Notepad++ for years but just a few weeks ago I started having a problems with it.

    After I install userDefineLang_AHK.xml, sometimes it works fine. But then other times usually after a few days some strange things start happening:

    The next time I go to edit a script, the highlighting is changed and wrong. For example, some lines are green that shouldn’t be. Other coloring is wrong as well.

    When I open the Language pull down menu to check to make sure AutoHotkey is chosen, it is…and if I choose it again by clicking on it, the colors are corrected temporarily …plus, for some strange reason, Notepad++ pages down the script some amount of lines.

    I’m using Notepad++v7.8.5 64-bit Build time: Mar 4 2020 - 11:08:34
    Windows 10 Pro Version 1909 64-bit

    I’m not sure what’s the cause, but I posted about this on the message thread for userDefineLang_AHK.xml on the AutoHotkey message boards and the creator of the .xml file said that he’s noticed it started a few version of Notepad++ ago.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Without having a reproducible way to do/observe it, it is hard to say.
    Personally, I use two UDLs quite often and have not observed such behavior, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there, obviously, just that I may not be acting in the order in which you do.
