Command bar syntax highlighter ignores new line after short comment

When entering code into the command bar that contains a comment followed by a new line, any code immediately after that new line is highlighted as if it is part of the comment.

For example, entering this into the command bar (copy & paste):

-- foo

Will appear entirely highlighted as a comment:


The expected behavior is that only -- foo is highlighted as a comment.

This does not affect how the code runs. I first noticed this today but it may have been happening ever since the highlighting was introduced.


Hi there, thanks for filing this bug report. Unfortunately, fixing it isn’t currently on the roadmap. Multiline usage of command bars is not currently intended so we can’t prioritize a fix at this time.
