Syntax editor does not retain configuration changes

Hi all ...

I linked a *.sql file in UR and I can see UR applied syntax coloring. However, I opted to change the color of a sql comment using '--' from default green to red. Clicked APPLY / OK.
Going back to plain text / options / syntax color / I see comment color reverted back to green.

It does not appear to be saving user changes.

I think you are correct, those settings do not persist.

I'm not sure if this feature is by design or it is a bug ...

Highlighting a line in info item 'plain text 1' or even toggling a bookmark, causes to insert/highlight in all other info items of plain text type.

In the image below, highlighting line 2 in info item 1 did the same in info item 2.

Are these highlights/bookmarks not specific to a single info item?

Thanks

It looks like bookmarks / breakpoints also do not work correctly in the syntax editor. They are global within a session and do not last beyond a session. I get the feeling that this functionality hasn't been used much in UR since this is first report of these issues in 17 years...

I use it to review software trace and log files. It allows me to highlight or bookmark specific errors or events in an ocean of data.

Over the years, I have not seen a tool to manage, mine, and analyze such data as effectively as UR.

Interesting. So then you would likely benefit from these issues being corrected? How have you been getting by with the limitations until now?

The idea is to be able to highlight or locate pertinent diagnostic data fast, especially during a presentation & using large files.

I initially used rtf files because I can colorize text and create rtf links. But, it was slow when handling large multi-MB files.

I started using plain text files, but I lost the ability to colorize and create links. Instead, I wanted a way I can quickly spot a line and get to location in the file.

1. I save the file with *.sql extension (even though it is just a plain text file) so I can use the default syntax highlighting feature

2. I import the file as a link to UR

3. I review the files and highlight pertinent diagnostic data using '--' to give red color

This works fine & color persists across UR sessions.

Syntax colorization for other programming languages

is it possible to add syntax colorization for java, c# or other languages?
Also how to add a type of document (the template is there but not in the right context menu when adding child/sibling?

Yes, but you would need to define the syntax coloring. See

C:\Program Files\UltraRecall\Editor\Schemas\

LexFormat.txt has some documentation, and the existing .schclass files would be examples for other languages.

To add a template for a particular document type, import a file and move to Templates. It should show in the Insert Child/Sibling menus after that.
