Arma 3 Notepad++ Syntax Highlighting

Recommended Posts

@Janez
Hi.

It turns out the issue I had with alphabetical sorting was because of a bug in Notepad++. I was using Function Completion only, but after switching to "Word and Function Completion" my issue is gone!

 

I hope it'll be useful to others running into the same problem!

I have the same problem. I did what u say. But auto compleation works only for words, not the functions.

upd

Just dowloaded Notepad++ 7.5.8 (old version) and everything works!!

I dont know why, but when I installed new version - there is no "plugins\APIs" foldier. Maybe that is the reason - it should be in another place. Because when I created this foldier and puted SQF.xml from "Auto" - Autocompleation didnt work for me

Then perhaps it was a combination of update + changing the setting to Word and Function completion that made it work!

Hi, thanks for pointing this out!

 

As of Notepad++ version 7.6.2, one should copy "Auto\SQF.xml" into (default path "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\autoCompletion").

 

New update also released for 1.86 Warlords update:

Just to be sure, install version 7.6.4 or newer. That's the one I tested with.

Yeah, me as well and there is a plugin out there for pretty much everything. Just recently I discovered a markdown (.md) plugin for example.
