Broke Syntax Highlighting in CSS


An old bug involving MaxTokensPerLine is still effecting things like CSS files. If you’re writing a style that exceeds 100 characters on a single row it stops syntax highlighting after that point, making it extremely difficult to know if something is broken. I can understand the 100 limit for things like JS where you’re only likely to exceed 100 characters in a compressed file, but in CSS it makes it hard to see what you’re doing as it’s easy to exceed 100 character count.


It isn’t a bug, it is designed that way intentionally to prevent performance issues. It also is 100 tokens, not characters.


is there any way to work around it for specific files? It get annoying code stops highlighting after I’ve added a handful fo styles to a row.
