    if i collapse a block in my "C" Source i see the '+' at the beginning of the block. Now i start to comment this block with "/*" now the folling source goes into the comments color and the "+" is no more availible include all the lines in this block

    like this
    if (do_all)
    [+] {

    after block comment
    if (do_all)

    and all in the block is away

    Is this a bug? Everything inside a comment block is comment, isn't it?

      Sorry you dont understand, after making a block comment, all inside the collapsed block is lost, you cant uncollapse the block.

    Well, I wasn't sure, but the text is not lost.
    I did what you did. When you start commenting the line above the block, the "+" turns into a "-", but it is a different block. The former "+" block still does exist. The line numbers tell you there are unseen lines.

    Click that "-" to fold the whole comment, then "+" agai: your text is there.

    Upon uncommenting, the "+" goes back where it was.

    Could you download SciTE and check whether the same issue is there?
    Does it happen with other languages that support block commenting?

    N++ 6.5.3, Win8.1/64 Could it be a 64 on 32 bit issue?
