      Hi Reza,

      The issue is the look-back length in the template file. In the file scenario
      that you have posted then by scrolling to line 52 then the highlighting is
      expected to look back more than 50 lines in order to find an anchor point on
      which to base its highlighting scheme for the current line.

      If you look at hkc.emf which performs the highlighting then the template is
      defined with a 50 line look back at line 110 i.e.

      ; Hi-light C Mode
      0 hilight .hilight.c 2 50

      Parameter 1 (=.hilight.c) is the highlight number.
      Parameter 2 (=2) is the bitmask and sets the highlight look-back
      Parameter 3 (=50) is the "nol" parameter which specifies the number of lines to
      look back.

      50 is a typical value that works for most code. For your code then this is not
      enough and you could change it to perform a longer look-back. The problem in
      the file disappears if you change the look-back size to 150 (say) i.e.

      ; Hi-light C Mode
      0 hilight .hilight.c 2 150

      You can change the look-back to any value, the bigger the value the more
      processing is required so it is best to find a reasonable value. The look-back
      does stop when it finds a token.

      To fix then copy the file hkc.emf to your local .jasspa (or .jasspa/macros)
      directory and then edit it to over-ride the default file (typically in
      /usr/share/jasspa/macros/hkc.emf for linux). Re-start the editor or re-execute
      the macro file and the issue will be resolved.

      Hope that helps.
