Qlik for Notepad++ v2.6 Released

Version 2.6 contains the following functionality improvements and bug fixes:
  • Added the missing keyword DETAIL
  • Corrected issue that was preventing "GROUP BY" being correctly highlighted
  • Made normal brackets "( and )" a delimited pair to support auto bracket closing and prevent issue with opening brackets preventing function highlighting
This release contains the following known issues:
  • The if() function is highlighted in bold. This is because Notepad++ can't differentiate between the if() function and the IF statement. No known solution is available for this issue.
It is recommended that this release be used with Notepad++ version 6.6.9 and later.


  1. Thanks Matt - been using this for ages now - very useful

    1. No problem. I've recently started using VSCode instead but I do find myself dropping back to NP++ now and again.

  2. Hi, thanks so much for this! For someone who hasn't used either before, would you now recommend VSCode over Notepad++ for Qlik work?
