How Can I create regions for a user defined language in NotePad++? I found that in View->User Defined Language menu, we can type keywords that I want it to use for region open and closing so I typed "if" and "endif" , worked..but the problem is that I cannot type more! I want "for" and "endfor" for example...

With the user defined language feature, spaces are used to separate keywords. In your example, the Folder Open Keywords Settings would contain:

if for

and the Folder Close Keywords Settings would contain:

endif endfor
