C++ ProgramEditor & changing background colors selected text

by smikkellsmurf / November 20, 2014 7:29 AM PST

Looking for highlightning C++ Program Editor with also the posibility to change the background of some selected pieces of text (not the whole background of the screen)

i'm trying to find a CodeEditor for programming C++ with high-lightning and changing background color of selected text.
So i mean:
- Highlightning the text as usual
- select text and change only the background color of that selected piece of text.

I tryed ultra edit, visual studio, codelite, C-free5, UEStudio, notepad++, and many others.
Nothing works like it should be.
I must say that Notepad++ is the closest for now, but this program is not working like it should ether.
Notapad++ give about 5 colors to choose from, but all the same colors al linked together.
When you make a mistake, you can not make it undone, you have to remove all of that color and start over.

Who now's a nice editor that highlights with also the posibility to select pieces of text and change only the background of that text into multiple colors ???

Given the decades since programming on PCs and such, how could this be? Anyhow, now you have your next great project. I can't guess which compiler/IDE/YAIDE you use but Visual Studio allows you to modify it with plugins and more.

It may take a year but craft your own tools and you'll be happier.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
