Syntax Coloring Scheme Editor

With the Syntax Coloring Scheme Editor, you can create your own syntax coloring schemes for use with EditPad Pro. You can also edit the schemes included with EditPad Pro, and those you’ve downloaded. The syntax coloring schemes files have a .jgcscs extension. You can’t edit them with any program except the Syntax Coloring Scheme Editor. You can download the scheme editor at The editor is a free download for all licensed EditPad Pro users. Full documentation is included.

The syntax coloring schemes included with EditPad Pro are stored in the folder where you have EditPad Pro installed, typically C:\Program Files\Just Great Software\EditPad Pro 8. Windows’s default security settings do not allow normal users to modify files under C:\Program Files. Therefore, schemes that you download and schemes that you edit are saved under your Windows user profile, typically C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\JGsoft\EditPad Pro 8. If a scheme with the same file name exists in both the user profile folder and the program files folder, only the scheme in the user profile folder will be available in EditPad. On the Colors and Syntax page in the file type configuration, schemes loaded from your Windows user profile are marked with (user).
