notepad++ 64bit inserting timestamps
Hi, I installed notepad++ 64bit and realized it doesn’t support TextFX nor Python plugin.
Is there another way to insert timestamp with notepad++ 64bit?
Here’s one way: Remove the 64-bit version of Notepad++, install the 32-bit version of Notepad++, and get the TextFX and/or Pythonscript (or LuaScript) plugins.
One other option is to use NppExec - “Show Console Dialog”:
In the “Console” type this line:
“cmd /c Echo %DATE% %TIME% | clip”
Then in any open file use “Paste” to get something like this:
"30-Dec-17 17:13:49.41 "
Tested with N++7.5, Win7 and Win10
There is another trick that you can use with the normal and outdated windows notepad.
Create a file and insert just the following as first char in the first row
Close saving the file. Now reopen it with win notepad: the timestamp will be automatically inserted. The trick doesn’t work with n++ but you can open the file with win notepad, save it and reopen with n++ in seconds.
The ‘old’ plugin TextFX has an option called “TextFX Insert”.
Under this option there are two entries:
Date & Time - short format (e.g. 9:26 PM 01-Jan-18)
and Date & Time - long format (e.g. 9:26 PM Monday, January 1, 2018)
