A bug when creating a new text file (2d episode)
I start a new topic, about a possible bug I experiment with NP 7.7.7
I rewrite my post, as the first one was not clear enough to correctly expose my problem.
I am running windows seven x64 and I replaced the original notepad with notepad++ 7.7.7
I was browsing my harddisk and found an old text document that I named “adr mail (2017)”, with two spaces between “mail” and “(2017)”
If I double-click on its name, Notepad++ opens a window and gives me an error : “0” doesn’t exist. Create it?
and does not open the file.
If I right click on the name, and choose “open with notepad++”, the file opens without error.
Other case, that you can experiment easily, with a new text file : In explorer, right click “new” then “text file”, name it “sample text” (with two spaces between ‘sample’ and ‘text’.
The file est created. But Notepad++ doesn’t open it by double-clicking (error : “0” doesn’t exist. Create it?)
And this also occurs with the previous version (7.6.6)
Do you experiment the same bug ?
Thank you for replies ;)
Especially for Meta Chuh :
You wrote : “opening a file with 2 consecutive spaces in its file name, like test 2 spaces.txt, works both if i open it from explorer with right click > edit with notepad++ and works via the notepad++ menu file > open.”
Yes, these both ways work for me
but not if i create a new document with 2 spaces in its name, and try to open it by double clicking.
You also wrote : “please also go to the notepad++ menu settings > preferences > default directory and make sure that use new style dialog is enabled”
I enabled and disabled this parameter : nothing changes.
