NPP for iMacros

Post by lessigfan on August 11th 2011, 1:32 am

I don't know how many of you are using iMacros to manage multiple alts, I know at least two guys are besides myself, but I thought I'd share some advice. I'd used Notepad++ for some coding before, since you can plug in compilers, but it is amazing for iMacros stuff too.

  • You can set it as a default editor, instead of the useless built-in one
  • You can set it up to do iMacro syntax highlighting (tutorial*) to catch errors and let you write code instead of just recording
  • You can record notepad++ macros that make modifying lots of lines easily
  • Find (Ctrl-F) lets you replace one line at a time, and Find/Replace (Ctrl-R) lets you do find/replace for entire sections and does partial regex
  • When you start it up, it re-opens your text files from last time
  • You can search/find/replace across multiple files
I can't tell you how many other features there are, it makes everything much more pleasant. Give it a look.

* The "userDefineLang.xml" text in the link only covers upper case stuff. I redid it to include lower case as well, here it is below:

The code lets N++ do iMacro syntax highlighting. This is from the link I posted:

1. Of course, first you need to install the Notepad++ editor. Homepage: http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/

2. Look for a file "userDefineLang.xml" in example: c:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Notepad++\userDefineLang.xml (on XP) or c:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\userDefineLang.xml (on Vista)

3. If this file does not exists, create it and paste in the xml code
OR
3. If the file exists, edit it and paste in the full xml content.

4. Go to iMacro Settings -> Paths -> External Editor and point it to "notepad++.exe" (usually it is c:\program files\notepad++\notepad++.exe)

Thats it !

Important: If you already defined your own user defined language, than you have to merge the xml contents manually, cause Notepad++ does not support such imports right now. Exclamation
