No Highlighting?



  • I downloaded Notepad ++ primarily because I saw that it would highlight my tags and classes and such different colors, making it better for organization. However, I just downloaded it and wrote some code and it doesn’t do that. Is this a bug, or do I need to select an option in order to get this feature?



  • What language were you writing, and did you save it with a file name with the appropriate suffix - e.g. MyProg.java if you were writing Java code.

    Perhaps you didn’t give it a suffix until after you saved it away, and next time you edit the file it will respond to the suffix.

    You really need to give some more details.
