Notepad++ 7.5.3 release
Several important bug-fixes of Installer’s are included in this release:
It seems to have some error in ‘Autodetect character encoding’ feature.
My text file is encoded in OEM 852.
Npp 7.5.3 and 7.5.2 detects this file as OEM 737.
But Npp 7.5.1 detects it correctly as OEM 852.
This is a known bug in v7.5.2 and v7.5.3 so I’d suggest you stick with v7.5.1 for the time being.
Pull request to fix the issue is here https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/pull/3992
What about two proposals for improvement?
- What about to insert in find - replace dialog a button to switch the find field value with the replace field value?
- And what about to implement a real ruler? ------ not that one to insert into text as ASCII text it self… a little bit awful and not really useful
I know there is a plug-in for the ruler out there but it is a bit bugged: it doesn’t zoom accordingly with the text content on Ctrl+mouse wheel.
Thank you so much and best compliments for the beautiful job done.
still on 7.4.2, thank you…
and now try vscode & sublime-text to dev reactjs
I really like Notepad and been using it for quite awhile now. However … ever since 7.5.3, I will occasionally get an error when doing a save which causes windows (8.1) to close Notepad. The error apparently causes Notepad to wipe out the document that I was trying to save and so I lose everything that was on it. This has happened more than 4 times so far. No clue what is causing the error as Notepad doesn’t give me an error but does something that causes Window to end the program. Never had this problem in the earlier versions.
welcome to the np++ community
do you have another windows 7 pc (any release/service pack) or windows 10 pc (any release/service pack) where you can try to reproduce all steps done in 8.1 that lead to your force close of np++ and your loss of your document ?
or can you reproduce this behavior in windows 8.1 by specifically doing a sequence of steps ?
if not, it might be only occurring on your current 8.1 installation
you can avoid losing everything by enabling session snapshot and periodic backup in the settings menu:
settings > preferences > backup > enable session snapshot and periodic backup
(you can set the backup interval in seconds)
hint: if it was already enabled, you might find your lost files in the backup path shown on your backup settings page
@Meta-Chuh Thanks for the backup reminder, I’ll check on the settings! Meanwhile, I do have access to a windows 10 pc, though most of the time I’m using Notepad on the 8.1. I’ll try some things and see if I can figure out a way of consistently reproducing what is happening.
Also I was curious to see if I was the only one having this problem. Thanks for the assist!
I found the 64-bit version of the plugin manager and dropped the files for it in the Plugins folder. All it working for me now.
@Joe-Abdo There was an issue with the DSpellPlugin, bundled with N++ since 7.5.2 again. The fix is available with 7.5.4 or by an update of the DSpellPlugin, see https://github.com/Predelnik/DSpellCheck/releases. With version 1.3.5 the issue should disappear.
