I want to use notepad++.



explain detailed:

  (  -> first parenthesis start, example with red(random select)
  (  -> second parenthesis start, example with blue(random select)
  )  -> second parenthesis end, example with blue(same as the second parenthesis color)
  )  -> first parenthesis end, example with red(same as the first parenthesis color)

How to do that to make easy to match parentheses?

Thank you~

Do you mean that they are coloured at all times, or only when the cursor is on them (as in Notepad++ 5.8.6)? – Gnubie Apr 17 '12 at 11:33

Currently there is nothing like colored parenthesis pairs present in Notepad++ or in any plugins I know. You can leave a feature request following the link with the same name on Notepad++ website.
