#1 MS VBScript files not highlighted

Posted by: joemarfice | Date: 2019-07-11 18:40 | IP: IP Logged

The highlighter function works fine for other files, like *.bat and *.bas, but the *.vbs and *.asa files are not recognized. WSH scripting is turned on. The VBS extension is only assigned to MS VBScript.

Can someone suggest what I'm missing?

Maybe your file is too big. There is limit for automatic highlight.
Open program settings / Direct edit
Find line HLUpToSize and change value e.g. to 500000

You can anytime activate code highlight manually by toolbar button or in the menu View / Syntax

On the statusbar should be highlighter name, if highlighter is recognized by file extension
