Well, sorting is just one of a large number of things TextFX does, so if it had “sort” in its name it wouldn’t make much sense. In a broader view, it provides all sorts of different “text effects” (which I encourage you to look through to note valuable features for later use)…now do you understand the name? :-D
Could be made working with some tweaks.
My idea would involve nppexec plugin and two versions
of NppExec.ini file because NppExec can be configured to run Compare
on notepad++ startup.
Basically, one NppExec.ini is configured with something like
and the other with default settings.
You create a batch file which gets executed when clicking the explorer context menu entry.
The batch file itself renames the default NppExec.ini to something like NppExec.ini.default
and the special one from, let’s say NppExec.ini_compare to NppExec.ini .
Then it starts npp exec with the parameter to open the two files and afterwards
renames the NppExec.inis back to default. Should work, I guess.
