I can recreate the issue every time on both machines quite easily.
- Make a blank text file.
- Add the following:
- Save the file as test.json
- Open it in notepad++ v6.8.8 or newer
Could this be the case for you as well?
In the same line, is there an entry called tabSettings= ?
If so, delete it and restart npp.
Yes, looks like you can’t use custom tab setting for js currently.
I did a test with various values and it always freezes regardless which value I chose.
