Custom Syntax Highlight: list of preprocessors and symbols

Unread postby Olivier Beltrami » Sat Feb 02, 2019 5:17 pm


I have been building-up a custom syntax highlight in H&M and it is working really nicely when combined with styles.

But, while I have been able to enter my list of reserved words, I cannot see where to enter my list of preprocessors and symbols.

Where can I specify these (this is my own macro language, not an existing language).

Very best regards,

Hi Olivier,

Unfortunately, the custom formatters don't support those options. There are also limitations for other languages if you go through the list -- what can and cannot be set for each choice shows up automatically in the list when the language is selected. :?
