Currently I have only "doubleQuotes" highlighted but the 'single ones' stay normal. Can someone confirm? Or have a solution how to fix that?

In the stylers.xml there is WordsStyle named STRING which has the "doubleQuote" color. But neither there nor in the langs.xml I'm able to see a way to make it work for 'singleQuotes' too. Or at least I know too little to about configuring those Notepad++ files.

Please don't suggest another editor ;] thx!

  • @IonutHulub: is already triggered by .py extension :/ Also: The python specific coloring for "doubleQuotes" works! – ewerybody Mar 6 '13 at 17:55

In the default language styling that comes with Notepad++:

  • 'single' quotes are controlled by the CHARACTER Style
  • "double" ones by STRING.
  • Seems there is no way to unify them tho :/. However. Works properly now. – ewerybody Oct 22 '13 at 13:54

on the menu bar, select settings / Style Configurator / Python. then work on the TRIPLE and TRIPLEDOUBLE settings.

  • hmm.. No. What you mean does the '''comment block stuff''' thats used for .__doc__ Thats all set up properly. – ewerybody Oct 22 '13 at 13:44
