Is it possible to a xml-file without xml-support?
I have some very big xml-files: with some gigabytes or bigger.
Everytime, I want to load those (also or smaller) xml-files, the computer works heavy. sometimes it wants not to load the very big(ger) xml-files. sometimes it loads. but WITH xml-support, which I don’t want.
My question: I don’t want, while loading, an identifying as an xml.file. I don’t want a help on screen (right with minussigns or plussigns). Is it possible to get a file loading as “naked” in notepadd+±editor?
Thanks a lot of helping me.
Perhaps this is a really obvious answer, but couldn’t you rename the extension part of the filename from .xml to .txt before opening the “big” files? :-D
good idea! I’ve never thought about this possibility ;-)
some seconds later. it doesn’t work.
copy *.xml *.ttt
notepad++ interpretes the 1(?)st line:
“<?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“UTF-8”?>”
and gives his own interpretation, as an xml-file.
but if we do THIS:
kill 1st line: “<?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“UTF-8”?>”
and than edit with notepad++, than it will works!
if there’s not another solution, than would this works. ok.
I’m sure, there must exist something, in settings? in commandline? to ignore xml-function… it would be very lovely!
thanks a lot for Your ideas
go to plugins,
and if you have “xml tools” installed,
then turn off the “xml syntax auto-check”
it seems to be a good idea ;-)
but I have no plugins.
this is a standard installtion with “Converter” and “MIME-Tools”.
this may work
Settings … Preferences … Language … Language Menu … disable XML
also try running NPP with -noPlugin switch
if you use windows, make a shortcut to NPP on your desktop
right click the shortcut icon … choose “properties” from context menu
edit “Target” entry by adding " -noPlugin" (without quotes)
mine is: E:\apps\Notepad++\notepad++.exe -noPlugin
then just drag and drop xml file onto the shortcut icon
see if that makes a difference.
Sorry for this very late reply, but I just tested, with N++
v7.5.6, the following method and it works nice ;-))
Open a DOS console window
With an appropriate
cd /dDOS command, followed by the absolute path of Notepad++, in order to move to the installation folder of N++
Then, type the command
notepad++ -nosession -lnormal <Absolute Path ofYour_BIG_file
After hitting the Enter key, Notepad++ should start with, only, the
Your_BIG_file.xmlfile, as it was a simple
