It's definitely the font, I had the same issue until I adjusted my font to Source Code Pro.

OP, thanks! I've been using this for a little over a day now. Very helpful. :-) However I went in to change all of the font families to the standard... don't like custom fonts or sizes, just want the color formatting.

Great post, the highlight was great, thanks for the work. :bravo:

but just got a little problem --- can't display the parameter hint
im using win10 x64, npp 6.8.8
i can get the highlight and funtion Auto-Completion, but no parameter hint


i've tried both default & lazy theme, even the older portable version you uploaded(npp.6.5.bin.zip), but can never get the parameter hint
however, the parameter hint for built-in languages works, like for C++

i dont know where the problem can be, please help, thanks :dance:

Confirm this works for Windows 10 X 64 to make notpad++ as default editor for AHK files.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AutoHotkeyScript\Shell\Edit\Command

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" "%1"

Just to add some info : it works only if you use the installer, if you do not have the defaut regkey it won't work if you manualy add the missing keys.
Don't know why...

Great theme, I use it every time I code something for AHK. But there seems to be a bug: an ampersand (&) is not shown in Notepad++, however it is added. If I open the file in, say, notepad.exe it is shown correctly. I use Notepad++ 6.9.1 (the current version).

What type of font should I install? There are many (Regular, Bold etc.) and when I install one type and want to install another I get a message that says the font has been already installed.

EDIT: I figured it out. I can recommend also Hack font.

It's just DropBox. Dunno why they block it.

is it no easier to install the plugin with the Plugin Manager. the startpost is a bit ago. A complete workaround would be nice.

I was really going crazy. I want to add a new style and nothing happens. First the update to the version v.6.9.1 added the style correct.
I created a new Syntax-Highlightning file based on the Lazy one. But i completely redesigned it to a eye friendly dark background and i try to pick colours that not bite each other.

Just gimme a feedback if you try this out. I added all Commands and some Control parameter. But the parameter are the next thing i want to fit in.

is used theTechmantium Theme/ Style or use any other dark theme.

( select the Standard-Backgroundcolor global override to get it right )

I'm usually not a fan of dark themes, but that looks pretty neat. I might give it a try.
