I can't find how to customize syntax highlighting for mapfile (*.map files) in Notepad++. I actually have add this syntax file recommended in this post. BUT the syntax highlighting is not good, probably because built for an old version of MapServer (see image below where plenty of key-words are not colored properly). I therefore have 2 questions:

  1. How can I customize the syntax colorization? I can't access to the 'Mapfile' language via Settings > Style Configurator > Default theme (not in the languages list).
  2. How is it possible to make Notepad++ recognize *.map files automatically. When I open such a file, it is colored like a txt file and the extension *.map is not recognized.
