I'm sure that language injection for C used to work. Am I missing something? Do I need to add a particular IntelliJ plugin? I'm using IntelliJ IDEA 2023.3.
it doesn't work in K/N .def files either, but it used to...

I'm not at all familiar with this, but according to you would need the IntelliLang plugin enabled.
Make sure that the IntelliLang plugin is enabled before you start working with language injections.
(It might be enabled by default, but I don't have IntelliJ available in front of me right now to check.)

I think I noticed the same with Regex("...") not being highlighted for Kotlin a couple weeks ago, but didn't think much of it. Maybe it's a broader issue with language injection. Or maybe I have to make sure the IntelliLang plug-in is actually installed 🤷‍♂️

Ah maybe there's a problem with IntelliLang - it says "Not compatible with the version of your running IDE (IntelliJ IDEA 2023.3)"

they also removed some plugins that were pre-bundled before, e.g. Android, this might be similar (still available, but you have to install it manually after upgrade)
(Note: since Android has NDK support, maybe it also contained C support?)
