Will you ever fix this problem?
Everything is excellent in NPP, but this is an evergreen problem:
NPP should have default options, named:
Disable Syntax Highlight/Grammar check, if file is above [X] mb (be default, 1 mb)
if filesize is above [X] mb, ask me in which mode I want to open the file:
a) full support of SyntaxHighligh +SpellCheck + BracketsMatchand etc…)
b) Only plain text mode (so no actions should be taken to text-content)
THis is MUST HAVE options, as we are tired and annoyed by this bug, as opening 20+ more files, causes to freeze software (because it tries to syntax highligh, brackets match , grammar chek and etc…) so, just give us this simplest feature (like jEdit has already… only for this reason, I have installed jedit, as it handles large files well with T\PLAIN-MODE)
I’m always surprised by the way some people yell at others and insist on having something more than what they have given them for free.
First - This behavior is not a bug.
Second - Nothing is ‘MUST HAVE’ when it is free.
Third - If you are tired and annoyed use jEdit.
- Say ‘Thanks’.
- Say ‘Please’.
- Go to https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues and create there a new Issue. Name it ‘Feature Request’ and describe in more neutral way what is your proposal to make this software better suit your needs and better in general for all.
Well said. Much better than what I forced myself not to post! :-)
