We all want syntax highlighting. It is the most significant draw back
to notetab (and page folding is probably #2). I understand that to add
it would be a total rewrite on a different structure as it cannot be
done with the current understructure.
Sheri did write a great little program that uses perl or php I don't
remember which and does syntax highlighting in your browser.
I think that you could easily write the clip you suggest, but I don't
understand your context re the pdf file open already in adobe.

previewing. When I click the icon it calls up pdflatex.exe with
<file>.tex and that compiles it to <file>.pdf. <file>.pdf is then handed
to the Arcrobat reader. Now that reader locks open files, so after a few
modifications, when calling up the preview again, pdflatex.exe could not
write to <file>.pdf. This is why the first thing that "clip" does is
look if Acrobat is running and if <file>.pdf is open and if so closes
