Introduction

GeoDMS configuration files can be made or editted with an ASCII editor. We advice to use an editor supporting command line parameters for opening a file and positioning a cursor. This makes editting easy, the menu option: edit configuration source in the GeoDMSGUI can immedietaly show the relevant part of the code (if the setting in the Tools > Options is correctly configured).

We have experience and made language definition files available (highlighting the GeoDMS grammar in different colors) for two editors:

Crimson Editor

For the Crimson Editor we advice version 3.70. Mirror: Crimson Editor 3.70.
After installing the editor, copy the language definition files from "GeoDMS/dev/res/Crimson Editor" (User Name: guest, Password: guest) into the indicated folders in the Crimson Editor program files folder.

For more information on this editor, see: http://www.crimsoneditor.com. We advice not to install version 3.72.

In the GeoDMSGUI the setting for Tools > Options > General Settings > DMS Editor should be: 

%ProgramFiles32%\Crimson Editor\cedt.exe /L:%L "%F"

(default setting after installing the GeoDMS).

If you installed the editor in a different folder as the folder Crimson Editor suggested, you need to adjust the folder.

Notepad ++

The Notepad ++ editor can be dowwloaded from: https://notepad-plus-plus.org.

After installing the editor, import the language definition files from "GeoDMS/dev/res/\NotePadPlusPlus" (User Name: guest, Password: guest)  with the menu option language > define your language > import.

For working with this editor, the GeoDMSGUI setting for Tools > Options > General Settings > DMS Editor should be:

%ProgramFiles32%\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe "%F" -n%L

If you installed the editor in a different folder as Notepad suggested, you need to adjust the folder.
