Thank-you for your response. I am using Npp 5.5.1 and the calltips for C++ work okay. I saw the startitemize tip in the context.xml file and tried it out but it didn't work. I was hoping to complete just a few calltips for commands that I use rarely enough not to remember the parameters but often enough to make looking them up annoying! Calltips for all commands would be a wonderful thing!

Anyway, if it used to work for you, perhaps I should address the Notepad++ community instead.

Thanks again for your help.
