Since PSPad 4.3.1 beta (1989), Date: 07-20-2004
there are new features, available only through PSPad.ini in [Special settings] section

You can edit this settings direct in PSPad:
goto "Settings\Program Settings... "
and press the [Direct edit] button
on the left down side of the settings dialog box.

================================================================

Because i always don´t overwrite my PSPad.ini
i think i don´t get automatically those new "[Special settings]" entries.

But that's wrong! Here is an workaround from Jan:
Go to program settings and save settings.
New items will be created with default values.

If you enable "Settings\Program Settings...\Editor behaviour\[x] Scroll past EOL"

HLOnUpToSize=x

Value 'x' sets max. file size limit for auto switch on highlight syntax.

Disable highlighter for big files, e.g. for greater than 250kB
HLOnUpToSize=250000

It mean if file size is less then value, highlighter will be activated automatically. (only if enabled in highlighter settings of course)
If the file size bigger than value 'x' no syntax is highlighted.
You can set value 'x' to 0, if you never want automatically syntax highlighting.
You can click on tool bar button and switch on highlighting if you need it.

You can set this value e.g. to 2 000 000 000 if you has the time to wait for bigger files to load with syntax highlighting winking smiley
