Smart Highlighting bug
See the below selection of text, when it is selected on the last line (without an empty / new line following) then the highlighter doesn’t work.
It works okay for me when I try it in v. 7.5.6. What version are you using? Same?
Maybe copy and paste your debug info here?
See ? (menu) -> Debug Info… -> Copy debug info into clipboard
I’m running version 7.5.6 and it isn’t working. Please note, the last line isn’t followed by a new line and also doesn’t contain a space. If the last line is followed by a new line or a space then it works. To make sure none of the plugins is the culprit I also started without any plugins:
Notepad++ v7.5.6 (32-bit)
Build time : Mar 19 2018 - 00:26:59
Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : ON
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 7 (64-bit)
Plugins : none
It does work when the Smart Highlighting is enabled AND “Match whole word only” is also enabled, but in my case I don’t have the “Match whole word only” enabled.
