Hi Roger,

Unfortunately no, the control itself won't work in Linux.  Our various SyntaxEditor NuGet packages include both Text.* and SyntaxEditor.* assemblies.  The Text.* assemblies are intended to be platform-neutral since they don't have any ties to UI frameworks, whereas the SyntaxEditor.* assemblies do and will only work on Windows.

Some customers like to use our Text.* assemblies in a server environment (which could be Windows, Linux, or any other platform) and to do that, they would need reference the SyntaxEditor NuGet package(s) that contain the Text.* assemblies they require.  However we had a couple minor configuration issues that were requiring Windows for those Text.* assemblies, which we fixed in the referenced build.

After v23.1.1, customers can use the Text.* assemblies from the SyntaxEditor NuGet packages properly in non-Windows platforms.

Here's the related thread for that issue, in case you'd like more detail:

Thank you for the replay. I would like to confirm the thread is for WPF but is it work on Winform SyntaxEditor also?
