Live Sync between multiple computers
Hi, I’m not sure where new enhancement ideas would go, so feel free to move this thread if this is the wrong area.
It would be really cool if Notepad++ could sync the active tabs between multiple computers.
Many of us work with multiple computers each day, so being able to copy/paste into NP++ on one computer, then go to another system and grab the text out and continue working would be a huge help.
I imagine you could “hack” this kind of work by using the portable version of Notepad++ and placing it in DropBox or some other cloud sync tool so that the application and its config file carry between computers.
You would still have a lot of stuff stored in memory that wouldn’t sync at all. It is fairly straight forward to sync configuration settings, under the settings options just specify a folder that is synced between computers.
Long ago there use to be a plugin that allowed two users to connect their N++ instances together and edit the file simultaneously (kind of like google docs allows). Can’t recall what it was called or if it even works with newer versions of N++
