[Bugs] Syntax highlighting lost in new instance with user-defined languages (Notepad 7.x)
This bug didn’t exist with notepad 6.x. In notepad 7.x, if you click a file Tab - Move to New Instance, the syntax highlighting is lost immediately. It looks like that the notepad cannot identify the newly opened file type. This only happens to user-defined languages. I am not 100% sure if it is due to a bad user-defined language. So, I attached my syntax file [plaza.ufl.edu/sibojan/Files/NM.xml] . Hope that helps troubleshooting.
I see this in 7.5.1 with my user defined languages. In the bottom right status bar, instead of "User Define File - <name of language>" the new Notepad++ instance shows only “User Define File”. That is, the dash and name of the language are missing. The Language menu has a dot next to “User-Defined” instead of the user defined language. To invoke the user defined language, I only have to select the language name.
