Share User Define Language

    How can I share a USER DEFINE LANGUAGE with other people using Notepad++ without reconfiguring it by hand.

    In other word, where does Notepad++ save all the laguage I define.  Does it create a new file under c:\Program Files\Notepad++\lang.xml or does it save the information in the Windows Regestry ?

      1. type %APPDATA%\Notepad++ in Run box, then Enter, there'll be a opened folder appears.

      2. In the opened window, you'll found out a file named "userDefineLang.xml". Copy it.

      3. Do the same procedure 1. to the PC destination.
      Copy the "userDefineLang.xml" into the opened folder.

      4. relaunch Notepad++ from the destination PC et voila.

        That's great...but what if you have more than one and may want to distribute them individually.

        You clearly can't have *userDefineLang.xml or userDefineLang*.xml cuz NP++ can't see it.

        Can you separate the UserDefineLang into separate files and allow for the filename to contain some identification as to what it is?

          Hi There,
          How to add a new language?
          I use NP++ 4.1.2

      Yes, all files called userDefineLang_XXX.xml
      like userDefineLang_autoit.xml  and
      found in the np++ folder
      should be automaticly joined together to one
      userDefineLang.xml file.

      I have found the trick how to use more then
      one userDefineLang_XXX.xml file:
      1.) copy all userDefineLang_XXX.xml files
      into ONE userDefineLang.xml file.

      2.) then delete all this


      between the single user language definitions.

      3.) restart np+++

        Mine requires the name to be userDefineLang.xml and place into the APPDATA folder
