#1 Improve string recognition in Autohotkey sytax highlighting

Posted by: halweg | Date: 2020-10-02 08:14 | IP: IP Logged

Hi!

I like to highlight my Autohotkey scripts and basically it works fine.
So Strings in "..." will be recognized as Strings and shown in a special color.
I know that there's a setting "User Highlighter" to change this behavior.

Is there a way not to stop a string highlight when `n or `r or similar signs appear inside the string?

Greetings and Thanks in advance,
Halweg

Hello

Tested:
"some string"
"some another `n or `r string"

Both cases was highlighted as string

How it looks in my case:
1drv.ms
My user highlighter settings:
1drv.ms

I played a little bit with the settings but it was success less. May be there are some other settings I missed...

Download current PSpad build from developer forum. From your user highlighter settings I see you use some old version.

You can backup your PSpad folder and return it back anytime.

Thanks.

I've version 5.03 (377) 32bit

I've adapted syntax and other ini files that may be need to renewed when installing updates. So installing a new version of PSPad is something that may cost a lot of time to me. I usually do it once in 5 years.

In the developer forum I found a pspad504b527x64.zip file what seems to be a portable 64bit installation. Without Autohotkey.ini and most other of the syntax-files.

What I need is an update from 32 bit to 64 bit version with system are not included.
So I'm not sure how to do a proper replacement from my version with autohotkey.ini and other settings to the 64 bit version. What about the system integration of PSPad?

Download 32b version, not 64b verzion zip.
Backup your pspad folder, replace files.
Ypur config will be preserved.
You can put your backup back in any problem

Thanks a lot for your instructions.
I just downloaded the zip (32 bit), merged the content to the existing PSPad directory and voila: all works fine including the string highlighting. Even key mapping preserved.

This helps!

Best Regards, Halweg
