Unfortunately upgrading from Notepad++ 6.4.5 to 6.5 does not automatically activate popular languages like PHP, Perl, XML, Batch, Ini and Nsis.
The solution is as easy as 1-2-3:
- Close Notepad++
- Press WindowsKey-R, paste "%APPDATA%\notepad++\" and press ENTER
- Delete the file called functionList.xml.
That's it. When you restart Notepad++, it will use the updated version of functionList.xml included with Notepad++ v6.5 and the Function List will work for all of the above mentioned file types.
Be sure to keep this tip handy as the next version of Notepad++ will very likely add more formats and may not upgrade the file again.
