in Windows 8 Source Preview Handler does not highlight syntax

Post by Siar » Sat Jan 05, 2013 12:52 am

Dear Community,
 
After installation of smartftp along with source preview handler there is no syntax highlighting. The addon is downloaded from here:
https://www.smartftp.com/client/addons/sourcepreview
At the same time syntax highlighting works in smartftp editor.
 
OS: Windows 8 x64.
 
Is it something idiosyncratic, or this is a general issue? 
 
Syntax highlighing preview works in Windows 7 (x64).
 
Thanks!
 
And additional question: is there a way to add a support for additional languages? In particular, it would be nice to have syntax highlighting for Stata *.do and *.ado files.

Please try it with the latest version:

>stata
If somebody is willing to contribute a sci lexer and a keyword list/styles we will add it.

You can probably adapt an existing lexer (/lexers folder) to support Stat.
