    I'm trying to set up my User Defined Language and I can't get folding to work correctly with my formatting.

    Block look like the following:

    rootBlock
    { <--- should fold here
        param1 value1
    
        innerBlock1
        { <--- should fold here as well
            param2 value2
            param3 value3
        }
    
        innerBlock2
        { <--- and here
            param4 value4
    
            innerBlock3
            { <--- and here
                param5 value 5
            }
        }
    }
    

    I've tried using both Folding in code 1 style and Folding in code 2 style and neither of these gets the folding right; some inner block always ends up folding in the wrong place. Also, if there is no space after the very first { then the root is not foldable when using Folding in code 2 style.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Hi Eugene,

    current UDL has some issues with folding. Until patch is committed to main branch, you can use latest beta version. Download links are posted in this thread:
    https://sourceforge.net/p/notepad-plus/discussion/331753/thread/01f8c28f?page=23

    If you do try beta version, I'd appretiate a quick info whether it helps you or not.

    Hi,

    I tried the beta version and the folding worked as expected. Thanks!

    Any idea which version of NPP this will go into?
