i would like to copy & paste source code from a browser window to a UR text item. How can i enable syntax highlighting for those items?
Is there a easy way to do this?

I usually paste some code snippet to IDE where it changes font and color and then copy/paste from there, so it's a two step procedure.

Thumbs up

Nice Workaround, quant. :-)

Is there a better way? Maybe change the template item to "Source code" or something similar?

Syntax highlighting in rich text items isn't support (except for static highlighting when copying formatted RTF as quant described).

Another option is to import a source code file as a template in UR and use UR's text file syntax highlighting.

After creating a text file template item, create new items from that template and copy/paste source code into it.

Cool

Works as needed, thank you very much! :-)

One minor glitch - the new source code template does not have a scrollbar.

If the text doesn't all fit in the window, it should display a scroll bar.

Does this imply that the copied text is still editable? If I remember right, when importing a source code file, eg JavaScript, the syntax is highlighted however the text is not editable.

Thanks for your reply.

I've now added .js to the list here: Tools | Options | Documents | File extensions.
The option "allow internal editing of linked documents" is set to true.

Afterwards I've used drag and drop to insert a blank file named JavaScript.js into the template folder inside UR.

My intention was to have a template which shows syntax highlighting each time I'm creating a new item based on this template. However, the new item and the template as well just shows a link "Click here to open linked document" instead of an editor.

Did I made sthg. wrong? I've restarted UR after setting the new options, btw.

EDIT: I got this running somehow, although I do not know exactly which steps I took. Perhaps inserting a *not* blank JavaScript.js file instead of an empty one did the trick.

Right, the imported document can't be completely empty. It must contain at least a single character (could be a space or newline) in order to be stored rather than linked.
