I just tested with 6.8. Enabling / Disabling windows clear type will change how the N++ menu is displayed but not where i read and edit the document. The “Enable smooth font” switch does nothing on my machine. “SCI_SENDMSG 2611 1” in NPPExec does help but is not persistent. This is really frustrating… Am i doing something wrong ?
To use the very powerful regex search feature, with the PERL syntax, you, absolutely, need an Unicode Notepad++ version >= 6.0
To get your version number, just, hit the F1 key, when a N++ session is opened
As for me, I try to “follow” the different versions, to reply, on that forum, too. So, I use ( one at a time, I’m careful ! ) any portable version, like an old Ansi 5.9.8 version, an Unicode 6.4.5 version, a 6.7.9 version and the last v6.8 version.
You’ll find good documentation, about the new Boost C++ Regex library, v1.55.0 ( similar to the PERL Regular Common Expressions, v1.48.0 ), used by Notepad++, since its 6.0 version, at the TWO addresses below :
