Unable to change syntax highlighting in Bluefish
Last modified: 2008-02-13 00:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
When you select a file type (e.g. php) from the "Syntax Highlighting" tab in
Preferences, you should be able to change the "PHP Block" start pattern, however
all boxes are empty. They should fill from the settings in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit -> preferences -> Syntax Highlighting
2. Select PHP from filetype
3. Select an entry such as "PHP Block"

Details to be shown and editable.
I've tried changing settings directly in file with no affect. Syntax
highlighting is working. If I use <?php...?>, I want to be able to edit it to
use say <?...?>.
Hmm, yes, I can't seem to get the Syntax Highlighting preferences tab to do
anything sane at all.
Have you tried editing ~/.bluefish/highlighting ?
I edited ~/.bluefish/highlighting and the changes took effect but still don't
show anything in the preferences tab. I also tried deleting the file and it was
correctly copied from /usr/share/bluefish/highlighting.default to ~/.bluefish/
The permissions and ownership of the file seem fine.
This issue has been introduced with Gtk 2.20, however, we did not yet find the
reason (any help is appreciated). More information at GNOME bugzilla.
