Quite often i see people asking which text editors others use to work with their G-Code.

It is so flexible, it can recognize the language you are working with and turn on the language-specific highlighting for even the G-Code.
I have created my own Language profile for it. It is attached to this article, so everyone can download it.
Below is how you can apply this language profile to turn on g-code highlighting:
