    Hello skwij,

    Welcome to the forums

    I have moved this thread over to our 'Other IDEs' forum: Other IDEs - Java Programming Forums

    I have no experience with Textpad but there is an FAQ here:

    TextPad Java FAQ

    I'm guessing there must be an option somewhere to set the Java syntax highlighting because Textpad is designed for multiple languages.

    OK I have done some research. This link should solve your problem:

    Using TextPad

    Scroll down to 'Configuring Java Preferences'

    Specific options available for configuring Java documents include syntax coloring (and color options).
    I hope this helps. Please keep me updated.
