How do you get Ren'py to use Notepad++ as the editor?

#1 Post by henvu50 » Sat Sep 07, 2019 6:04 pm

I launch ren'py, then I click scripts.rpy. It gives me a list of editors, but I have notepadd++ installed.

How do I get ren'py to open scripts.rpy in notepad++?

1. in ren'py launcher, on the bottom right, click preferences
2. click text editor and select system editor
3. right click an rpy file in a folder and have windows use notepad++ to open it by default

now when you click scripts.rpy in ren'py launcher it will open the file in notepad++ by default

Open notepad++, then open the game folder. Select all the .rpy files then drag it into the notepad. Or you can do the above suggestions.

Dont also forget the 4 line spaces, some text editors will be tricky. Or else it will cause you an tab error.

Try clicking preferences, text editor, system editor. You might need to associate rpy files with Notepad++ first.

You are probably also aware, but there is a syntax file that you can download for use with Renpy so it can predict and recognise the terms that Renpy uses.
