Yesterday I created a user defined language customisation for Notepad++ that enables it to recognise the syntax of a bespoke programming language. The customisation file is stored here:


Would it be better if this file was stored elsewhere, such as the Data directory. With its current location, does the file risk getting overwritten when the app is updated?

there is no file called userDefineLang.xml in the current Notepad++Portable, it wont get overwritten by future updates as long as the devs dont add a file with that ame. But in general, it is safer to put files you dont want overwritten in the Data folder cause you can be sure that they wont be overwritten there.
