Good time of day. The new version of notepad + + has added support for D and I found a few bugs. I was redirected here. I quote my post on the forum notepad + + unchanged.

WYSYWYG strings must have unique style, not default style from global styles.
`string`
r"string"

q-string and hex string must have default string highlighting.
x"00 FBCD 32FD 0A"
q"/foo]/"

but in q"/abc/def/" as string must highlight q"/abc/d part, ef/" is a not string. (see http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/lex.html ) escape sequences must has a unique style or string style.

\n
equivalent
"\n"

char[] some_string = \n;
equivalent
char[] some_string = "\n";

    These do not look like bugs but more like just your preferred behaviour.

    Support for particular languages comes from people that have some interest in those languages. I do not use D so will not be working on this.
