I'm wondering if there is any way to add new syntax highlighting patterns to TeXmaker.
I've been using TeXworks for years and I love that special characters
[ etc. are highlighted differently form everything else. The rest of the Texworks editor is a little minimalist though and I've been thinking of changing to a more feature rich editor. In particular, I like the "structure" and code folding that TeXmaker offers.
In Texworks you can define custom syntax patterns by editing the
syntax-patterns.tex file. Is there a similar thing hidden in TeXmaker somewhere? I've obviously found the custom syntax colouring menu in
Preferences > colour but this has a very prescriptive set of categories with no option to highlight custom strings differently.
Alternatively, does anybody know of another editor which offers customisable or TeXworks-style syntax highlighting and code folding.
Failing that, TeXmaker is open source right? Does anybody know about how syntax highlighting is taken care of? Perhaps I could hack a solution implementing customisable syntax highlighting for TeXmaker.
