I had a little play while munching my muesli this morning with adding this to my (probably won’t get in the engine) PR for escaped strings. It was only a few lines to add but I didn’t look at colorization yet. I put a gif up here https://github.com/livecode/livecode/pull/5781 <https://github.com/livecode/livecode/pull/5781>

Of course that is:

put ‘foo\
          bar’

Cheers
