Hi, I'm fighting with a Syntax Edit problem that occurs if a single line comment is used to comment out the ending of a multi-line comment block. The multi-line comment block should not end, but does.

In our syntax, # denotes single-line comments and .DATA OFF and .DATA ON start and end multi line comments.

For example...

#this is in the multi-line comment block
#this should still be in the multi-line comment block

This should reformat and collapse all 5 lines, but currently our application ends the multi-line comment block at the 3rd line.

Here is a snippet from our schema file:
     name          = c_DAT     
     parent:file     = <*.DAT|*.GPS>     
     caseSensitive     = 0
     DisplayName     = 'Normal Text'

     name          = c_DATCommentSL
     DisplayName     = 'Comment (Single-Line)'
     parent:dyn     = c_DAT
     children     = 0           
     start:tag     ='#'
     end:tag          = @eol
     txt:colorFG     = 0x008800
     txt:Italic     = 1     
     name          = c_DATCommentML     
     DisplayName     = 'Comment (Multi-Line)'
     parent:dyn     = c_DAT
     children     = 0          
     start:tag     = '.DATA OFF'
     end:tag          = '.DATA ON'
     Collapsable     = 1
     CollapsedText     = '...'
     txt:colorFG     = 0x008800
     txt:Italic     = 1

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
