I have created my own language settings INI file. It works generally satisfactorily, but there are two issues, on which I hope to get help here:
Question 1. I want to color-code numeric literal values (numbers). I haven't figured out how to do this, because I am using a Tag, and have no ENDCHAR to provide. The problem then is that entire remainder of the line is interpreted as part of the literal, and is colored as a literal, regardless of what it contains. Here is a sample of some of my Tag definitions for literal:
I attach my Settings.INI file (called "csl.ini")
Question 2. When I add one of my own custom indicators (which by coincidence happens to be called "breakpoint"), I try to highlight the line using white characters on a red background. The instructions I use are the following:
ec.AddIndicator(l, "Breakpoint Indicator");
Unfortunately, the SetCustomForeColor instruction does not change the font colors to White - they retain their original coloring (set by the settings INI file).
Any idea why the SetCustomForeColor fails to give me my White forecolor? And, any known workaround for this situation?

I got an answer from the Support Center. It goes as follows:

For item number 2 (custom fore colors), this was a bug. I have fixed this for the next version of Edit, which is due out any day now.
For the first item - I am looking into this. As you can see, there currently is not a good way to perform this.
