Notepad++ new release 6.8.2 (Updated)
Edited on 02/09/2015:
(tl;dr version: if you still got ’&’ not visible problem, use Style Configurator or remove stylers.xml to fix it)
v6.8.2 fix the problem of Source Code Pro font by removing it.
For people who still have the problem (for example: ’&’ is not visible), it’s due to your installed Source Code Pro font on your system, and here are 2 ways to remedy it:
- Use Style Configurator to set Default font as system font (Courier New).
- Or remove stylers.xml so Notepad++ will regenerate it on startup.
Here are some explanations:
In v6.8 & v6.8.1, Notepad++ Installer put Source Code Pro font in Notepad++ installed directory, load it then use it, without interfering with system.
In v6.8.2, Installer removes Source Code Pro font if user upgrade from 6.8/6.8.1, and Notepad++ doesn’t load Source Code Pro font, but use only the font in stylers.xml. If Source Code Pro font is in stylers.xml and user has installed it before, then it will be used.
stylers.xml will never be erased by installer since this file can be modified by users via Style Configurator.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I just hit a but on 6.8.2. I tried to open the XML files from the Notepad++ directory:
C:> notepad++ \usr\bin\npp*.xml
The above command works fine in 6.8.1.
@VinsWorldcom Thank you for the bug report.
I fixed the crash and you can open files with wild card via line command.
Could you test the following binary and confirm me the bug is fixed?
BINGO! I used the provided EXE by just replacing my current notepad++.exe. The command I used above now works fine. THANKS!
Sorry. My mistake it seems :p
Just updated to 6.8.2 and when I exit, the window stays on the screen, though the program is actually closed. If I move another window over the image, the image is “erased”.
@Darrel-Boyt It’s fixed here:
Could you test it and confirm me if this bug is fixed in the binary mentioned above?
@donho I’d love to, but the policies corporate put in place won’t let me. Every time there’s a new release, I have to send a request up to corporate to unblock it. I’ll try it on my home computer and let you know.
I see the same issue as Darrel Boyt above - v 6.8.2 - when I exit, the window stays on the screen, though the program is actually closed. I tried the update from donho (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/temp/npp.deadLockFixed.zip) but the ghost image issue still exists.
Thank you for testing @nemgh .
I redo a fix here:
Please try it and let me know the result.

Always wondered why installer won’t remember the “don’t use %appData%” setting…
Thanks @donho … the https://notepad-plus-plus.org/temp/npp_deadLockFix2.zip update resolved the ghost image issue.
Thank you. that fixed the issue (the & (ampersand) not displaying one) on my pc.
