Loading old shortcuts.xml file, still no macro



  • I took the shortcuts.xml file from a coworker with a stored macro I need. Pasted it into my Notepad++ folder. Double checked that it had saved correctly. Open Notepad++ and the macro does not show up. The default macro (Trim Trailing and save) that comes with the normal install is there but not the new macro. Help?



  • By default, all config data of Notepad++ are saved in and loaded from the folder %APPDATA%\Notepad++. Unless you run N++ in portable mode, it will ignore config files put into the application directory.
