Syntax highlighting not working for 'gcode'

It sounds like obsidian used prismjs for code block syntax highlighting? According to Prism, gcode is a supported language. But using that in obsidian doesn’t do anything special:

Looks like gcode support was added to prismjs in 2018 (request: gcode highlighting · Issue #1571 · PrismJS/prism · GitHub) - I doubt the version obsidian is using is that old?

For bug reports, please test it in the Sandbox vault with default theme, and no plugins. I’ve moved this to Help.

It’s working for me in the default theme. I just grabbed some random example on the internet since your code is a screenshot. Can you test with default theme? And if it still doesn’t work, post the results of the “Show debug info” command.

I am on the default theme, but “Dark” color scheme.

Here’s the results of “Show debug info”:

	Login status: logged in

	Community plugins: for bugs, please first try updating all your plugins to latest. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community plugins.

I’ll give it a try in the sandbox vault

AH - I believe I’ve figured it out. This seems to be specific to the “Live Preview” view. If I switch to “Reading” view then I get syntax highlighting

Oh yeah I can confirm that, at least in version 1.0.0+.

I don’t remember that being the case when I tested it back in September. But now I see the same thing. No syntax highlighting until you go in Reading Mode.

Python, for example highlights in both Reading and Live Preview.

But I think gcode was working in both before. But maybe not!

(I don’t know if this should be put back to a Bug, or if this is just an upstream dependency of Prism.)
