I used the standard configuration which means:
- At Advanced - Configuration - Editor Display - Syntax Highlighting there is the directory (and not a file) %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\wordfiles configured whereby %APPDATA% is here a reference to environment variable APPDATA containing path to user account related application data directory.
Deleting the string in edit field at top of this configuration dialog and closing the dialog with button OK sets this default wordfiles directory.
- At Advanced - Configuration - Directories there is the directory %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\templates configured.
I did not have any project loaded as I opened the *.html file in UltraEdit.
The caret was first blinking within an HTML section. The status bar displayed HTML
in fourth box as expected indicating this part is syntax highlighting with language HTML
as defined in html.uew
. The template list displayed Global
with no global templates as none defined by default, Power User
with no environment (layout) templates as none defined by default, and HTML
with the predefined language templates from html-tpl.xml
. And of course I could insert one of those templates by double clicking on it and also by typing template name using auto-suggest feature.
was used for this section in file. And in template list HTML
which of course could be inserted with any method for inserting a language template.
Last I moved caret into the CSS section. The status bar at bottom indicated now CSS 1.0-2.1
as language defined with that name in css.uew
disappeared and instead CSS 1.0-2.1
was displayed with the templates from css-tpl.xml
There is something wrong in your configuration if all that does not work. Check the configuration of the two directories. Check the *.uew files in the wordfiles directory.
Are your *.java and *.html files syntax highlighted at all with language as defined in appropriate wordfile?
Check the language template files. Is everything correct displayed in Advanced - Display/Modify Templates
which can be opened also via the context menu item Add/Modify Template
In case of you can't see something wrong, pack with ZIP or RAR the entire templates and wordfiles directories and add also a *.java and a *.html file to the archive. Upload this ZIP or RAR archive as attachment to your next post I will look into it if I can see something with UE v18.00.0.1021 which disables loading and displaying the language templates.
