Notepad++ 7.5.6: A message from outer space
Help us to relay a message from outer space:
Bugs with “default directory” settings and environment variables. Personally I use npp as a simple IDE, but in this version when I try running command, the gcc reports “No such file or directory”. And, everytime saving new file, it does locate in the installed dir but not my last-opened dir.
Bug in saving text language
Steps to reproduce:
- Open *.c file
- Observe that text is in one style (not any language is selected)
- Go to drop-box Language->C->C# or C++
- Observe that text style is updated.
- Close NPP
- Open NPP
- Observe that default text style but expected is C# or C++
OS - Windows 10 (64b)
could it be that you have C language removed from Languages?
Did you check if the extension is registered in any of the defined langauges in langs.xml?
If I open a c file, npp selects the C lexer
HexEditor plugin Version 0.9.5 and older… are not allowing Notepad++ to load… Is anayone having the same problem?
You are right. After enabling C language all is saved correctly.
Please let us edit some files on different disks and in various system folders like windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts using edit in notepad++. It only works normally if we use open with notepad++, but does not work using edit in notepad++. It tells us we have to run as admin, then we have to copy all text in current windows before saying yes, and paste in new admin window. And we have to repeat this always. If we log in as administratir (not only administrator type account, but hidden administrator account) then it works ok. If we make notepad++ always run as admin by setting it in exe or shortcut properties, this makes edit in notepad++ stop workin at all. Many users reported this problem, few months to years ago. Please fix this.
There is an error in version 7.5.6 when you request to open a file and filter by its extension. It’s not filtering! At least when I request to view “.java” files, it shows not only “.java” but also “.class”. Previously showed only “java”
It doesn’t seem to do that for me, but maybe I’m not doing it exactly the way you are–can you provide more detail/screenshots?
