Introduction

GeoDMS configuration files can be viewed or editted with an ASCII editor. We advice to use an editor supporting parameters for opening a file and positioning a cursor. This makes editing easy, the menu option: edit configuration source in the GeoDMS GUI 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 "Editor 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 GeoDMS GUI 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, adjust the folder.

Notepad ++

The Notepad ++ editor can be downloaded 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 GeoDMS GUI 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, adjust the folder.
