NppExport plugin - 'copy HTML to clipboard' does not work anymore
Hi, I updated NotePad++ recently and now the NppExport plugin does not work correctly anymore (copy HTML to clipboard) … previously i could select text that was set to XML language (with colours etc.), and copy and paste this into word doc (with colours etc.) … now the same copy/paste does not have any colour etc.
PLEASE advise soonest. thanks
I am using Notepad++ v7.7 (64 bit), build time: 19 May 2019 13:05:35
and using NppExport plugin v0.2.8
Similar experience with Notepad++ v7.7 (32 bit) using Export to HTML. It’s not putting in the tags. Reversion to 7.6.4 fixed issue for now.
Same here on 7.7, still works fine in 7.6.x, if you really have to, downgrade or switch to vscode to copy with format until this get resolved.
The biggest change in Notepad++ v7.7 was the switch from Scintilla 3.56 to 4.1.4 as the underlying editor. My guess is that the drastic changes in Scintilla has messed up some existing plugins by changing some required calls to perform specific editor tasks. I thought I remembered a recent post giving more details, but cannot find it with a quick search.
Do you remember which post I’m vaguely remembering? Or do you have other insight , like whether my theory about the Scintilla changes as the cause of these users’ NppExport difficulty? Or is there something else that’s a more likely culprit?
i think it was an @Ekopalypse post, but i’m not sure.
i also have too little knowledge about the scintilla functions used by nppexport.
and i do not have a clue why
copy html to clipboarddoes not copy anything, while
export to htmlas a file, at least saves the unhighlighted text.
note: @chcg has nppexport at his repo, in case anyone want’s to have a look at the code, and/or contribute.
NppExport: ‘Copy RTF to Clipboard’ and ‘Export to RTF’ both maintain font name, size, and bold, but not font color.
@Jon-Peltier colour makes a HUGE difference in readability, so this hopefully gets fixed soon.
Confirm. NppExport Plugin, doesnt work with both 32 bit & 64. bit Notepad++ Ver 7.7
Temporary solution: use the version 7.6.6 and everything works well.
