    I am in the evaluation of EmEditor, and it is definitive my Favorite at the moment.

    One thing I am not getting to work, I imported a ESY-Lua from the Library, checked the Highlight(2) -> Comments
    Begin: –[[
    End: ]]

    So if I open my lua-file and check if Tools->Select Configuration my Lua-config is active, I still get no multiline highlight for that comment-block only the first line.
    I compared this with a simple C-File
    foo foo
    is correctly highlighted and the Config is the same.

    any clues, or is it a Bug of the 9.13, which is the Eval-Version

    Hello Matthias,

    Thank you for trying EmEditor Professional!

    I reproduced your issue, and the problem was the Line Comment (–) has more priority than multiline comment (–[[…]]). If you remove the string (–) from Line Comment text box in the Highlight (2) tab of configuration properties, it works. I am not sure if I can correct this behavior at this moment.

    If you want both types of comments highlighted, instead of specifying — in the Highlight (2) tab, you can add — in the Highlight (1) tab, check “Highlight Right Side”, and select your favorite color (1 – 10). You will also need to remove the already defined keyword (-) from the list.

    I hope this helps.
    Please don’t hesitate to ask me if you have further questions.
    Thank you,




    Nice Idea!
    Yes it helps, I understand its a bit difficult with that
    and — stuff.

    Hehe… still my favorite editor
