I know with older versions you were able to fold text in a user defined language. With the new version I can't get the folding to work. The language that I'm using is defined by my professor and so we just import the file into notepad++, but once you do that I can't seem to find a way to change the folding options. Also because I've tried doing this a few times already I've got multiple instances of the language under my language drop menu, so if someone could tell me how to remove the excess, I'd appreciate that too. Thanks.
just select instance that you wish to remove, and press "Remove" button. As easy as a pie :-)
Now, in order to help with folding problem, I need to see original userDefined.xml file defined by your professor. Please share it here.
BTW, which version of Notepad++ are you using?
Loreia I was able to remove the extra instances, but still unable to get the folding to work. I'm using version 6.5.1, and I've attached the .xml file as requested
you need to first select language from drop-down menu. Only then will "Remove" button appear.
You professor is using special line comments as folding points: #begin #end.
In order to support the same functionality in UDL2.0, you need to define line comments as they are now (starting with #), remove current entries in Folding in code 1 type (#begin #end), and add Folding in code keywords as:
Perhaps you could suggest to your professor to upgrade his UDL definition to latest version (currently 2.1).
Thanks Loreia, that works perfectly and I've told my professor, so he's implementing the changes as I type this.
