Prevent <br>, <hr>, <img>, <link> and <meta> from being closed automatically.
I am running Windows 7 and NPP 6.9.2.
It is stated that this issue was resolved in NPP 6.9 (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.9.html).
Any idea what I can do to correct it? It’s getting really annoying.
It works fine for me. You probably have XML Tools installed which is actually auto-completing the tags.
Had to wait the requisite 20 minutes between postings since I’m new here…
I didn’t have it installed, but after reading about the problem with it, just for kicks, I installed it - same issue. Uninstalled it again, and I’m still having the issue. (I also uninstalled HTML tags - just in case, but that didn’t change it either)
Here’s what I tried with v6.9.2
- Launch N++
- Set language to HTML
- It doesn’t autocomplete it
- Type something else like
- Auto completes
I ended up blowing away the install completely, and completely reinstalling, and re-adding the plugins. It now works.
It’s possible that there is an issue with the upgrade process somewhere -I’ve been updating it for 4 years without removing it.
