Use pure Win32 API is the advantage of Notepad++, which could bring Windows users a smooth experience in a fast response. For this notepad++ is good yet there is no reason to have a macOS version just because it couldn’t.
There are already lots of editor with native interfaces under macOS environments. If still miss notepad++ appearence, NotepadNext is a good choice…
I would say this another way : I couldn’t find any proper place to do so …
Did you happen to look in one of those “subjects” areas perhaps the FAQ since it might have relevant information. I guess not, but maybe now is the time to read some, especially Feature Request or Bug Report.
There is lots of good information within the FAQ and also posted/pinned to the start of most “subjects” areas as well. Unfortunately most “new” members of the forum seem to miss them. I suppose why would be the obvious question?
And I suppose english isn’t your first language as it would be wish-list, whish is a sound. But after reading the linked post in the FAQ, you will see that while talking about bugs or features here is helpful, officially those requests need to be made elsewhere to get any possible traction with the developers.
You make a statement but you supply absolutely nothing to back it up. Firstly, providing the version you are using would be very helpful. Suggest read this post and then supply the info requested.
I will hoever go out on a limb here, in suggesting you are possibly using the portable installer. If that is the case you need to read this post. Understand that the portable version DOES overwrite everything by default, that is how it was designed. As it appears you don’t want that to occur you either need to back up the XML files first as suggested in that thread, or use the normal installer.
@dulce-gd Conceivably you have anti-virus software running that incorrectly identifies Notepad++ or some of the optional software (Python?) as “trojan”. The difference from a trojan will be that you can un-install Notepad++.
Except when the uninstall program is the part that’s being shown - rightly or wrongly - as the trojan.
And it’s happened before now that hackers have taken Notepad++ - or other publicly available software - and have created their own evil copy of it, that installs malicious software. And installs Notepad++ hopefully but even so, that’s not a good thing to happen.
Taking a position about Ukraine could make this more likely.
TL;DR - “remove”, un-install, the Notepad++ software. If that comes out better - then it probably wasn’t trojan. Trojan software sticks.
So then, discreetly share details of the detection with our host, or with your malware detection provider.
