I've written a script in Notepad++, and I want to highlight individual lines based on who is speaking. I'm just trying to find a place where I can change text color or background color for individual lines. Is there anything built into Notepad++ that does that?

The current solution I'm using:

  1. Drop-down: View->User Defined Languages
  2. Create keyword (character's indicator).
  3. Change the background color.

It highlight's the character's name in other places in the text, though. An undesired but unobtrusive side-effect. No highlight feature I can find, unfortunately.
