Notepad++ 7.4.2 release
SWIFT language is supported in this version.
The regression of replace in files in v7.4.1 has been fixed.
There are also some fixed bugs and 1 enhancement (Resizable Find & Replace Dialog) including in this release:
After upgrade to version 7.4.2, I found the Chinese “find next” button in search box is Chaotic.
@donho I’ve recorded a macro to help move some strings from an html file into an array for easy translation.
I do alot of finds forward and backward, begin/select, copy and pastes. Nothing too fancy. Basically I’m taking a line that looks like:
<input type=“hidden” id=“DISPLAYNAME” name=“DISPLAYNAME” title=“Set from AP SSID or scanner hostname in Infrastructure mode”>
and adding two lines on top of it, from which I will move them manually to other documents. The end result look like:
document.getElementById(“DISPLAYNAME”).title = DisplayString[“DISPLAYNAME_title”];
DisplayString[“DISPLAYNAME_title”] = “Set from AP SSID or scanner hostname in Infrastructure mode”;
<input type=“hidden” id=“DISPLAYNAME” name=“DISPLAYNAME” title="">
When I record this macro and run it, Notepad++ v 7.4.2 crashes with not messages. If I save the recording and play it back it does pop up error messages:
Internal error: unknown saved command!
Notepad++ will attempt to save and unsaved data. However, dataloss is very likely. I’ve put the crash dumps here: Crash Dumps
The macro feature is a huge time saver for me, if there is any time you can find to look at this, I would certainly appreciate it.
I just did an update to version 7.4.2, and I’m probably the only one annoyed by the flickering of the menu-texts when moving the mouse over the file-tabs?
Is this behaviour introduced with the miniature images that pops up when hovering the tabs?
Per Pasgaard ,
Go to preferences/MISC and turn off both entries in the ‘Document Peeker’ box. Why anyone would want these enabled is beyond me!
I use np++ since years and appreciate the hard work. The newest version has the resizable Search Dialog, which is nice. But in previous versions the text on the buttons were readable in german. See the new version with german translation:
Thanks, i was just about to report that as well. Reverting back to 7.3.3. now. Not a big fan of this new feature in general.
Highlight section, find (ctrl-F) in selection check box is not showing.
It only showed on Mark tab
I’m running 7.4.2 at this point and still can’t use Replace In Files. It’s just repeatedly giving me the Unknown Exception. I don’t see any others in here stating this, so I’ll just try reinstalling.
Opening the search dialog now has a funny behaviour …
- highlight a line with CR/LF or LF or CR (depending on EOL settings)
- hit Ctrl-F (or Search-Find)
- the search dialog opens with an “invisible” EOL
- in some versions past, Notepad++ used the “Search Mode” to translate EOL and other special characters … this is also no longer in effect
That invisible EOL is quite bad … especially when you aren’t aware of that, changing to “RegExp”, adding “\n” and nothing is found as there was no empty line after the searched text.
Found an annoying though minor bug in 7.4.2. It’s probably been around for a while.
Editing a 1000+ line CSS file, if I have line 1000 at the bottom of the NPP window, that tab-view shutters like crazy as it tries to reconcile the width of the line-number column and horizontal scroll (I think). No other tab-views are affected. At first, I thought my video card was failing. I adjusted my Npp app width and not only did it go away, but I can’t reproduce it.
