When you need find something in ABB robot backup you have two solutions: use RobotStudio, or software like notepad provided with your system. RoboStudio has a lot of advantages, for example: syntax check and auto-completion. But when you have quick and dirty job (like checking Wobj values) you don’t need all of these functions.

To preview all kinds of text files I use Notepad++. It is powerful (and free :-) software which offers everything what I need (editing in column mode, tabs, regexp support). I only missed syntax highlighting for Abb Rapid programming language. So I decide to create my own theme which is compatible with BMW LU/L7 standard (support for MoveJG, MoveJ_CollReq motion commands etc.).

This theme is not an exact imitation of RapidStudio syntax highlighting colours. I decided to mark element which are important to me (collision zones definitions, locations with „fine” motion zones). But you can easily adjust it to your preferences if you need it.
