Qt Creator editor - can not activate Cython syntax highlight

  • In current Qt Creator I could not set Cython (extensions="*.pyx") highlight even after:

    1 - Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> Generic highlighter, setting the folder there to one with the two files:

    For yaml the syntax highlight started working here. But *.pyx cython files still were highlighted as "python".

    2 - In Tools -> Options -> Environment -> MIME Types, I dissociated *.pyx files from anything. It was previously associated with python.

    And the editor still highlights just as python. Kate, for instance, highlights correctly, so the xml seems correct.

    Is there a way to enable Cython highlighting in Qt Creator?

    (note: the above xml for cython is trivial to google from its own file name)
