Notepad++ 6.8.4 released



  • This version contains a lot of bug-fixes and some enhancements:
    https://notepad-plus-plus.org/news/notepad-6.8.4-released.html

    Edit: For the previous versions only one js lexer was used for both for embedded (in html) and “stand alone” javascript. From this version a new Javascript lexer has been added for “stand alone” javascript. The old js lexer is only for embedded javascript syntax highlighting.
    If you got syntax highlighting problems (for 6.8.4 or upper versions) for javascript, please exit your Notepad++, remove %appdata%\Notepad++\stylers.xml and relauch Notepad++. It should solve your problem.



  • Not work hide in Tray :(
    Fix please.



  • The function list is not working in JavaScript files anymore. I installed 6.8.3 again and it works fine there on the same files. I was checking the config files to see if there was a problem there but I could not figure it out.



  • Same problem



  • @User-Soft Tested in v6.8.4 under Windows 10 32bits, “hide in try” works for me.
    Could you provide more info (your config, instructions to reproduce it, the screenshot…)?

    Note that “hide in try” feature is disabled in Administrator mode due to the restriction in such mode.



  • What about the AutoComplete?



  • The shortcuts of “Ctrl + Shift + Up” and “Ctrl + Shift + down” don’t work in macro mode, is it a feature?



  • It seems that Source Switch plugin doesn’t feel good with new version. Npp crushes on exit
    with the following error

    Hello William,

    Yes, you’re right. the Move Up Current Line and Move Down Current Line actions are wrongly recorded in a macro. Luckily, there’s an easy work-around :-)

    Let’s suppose, that you simply recorded the Edit - Line Operations - Move Down Current Line action OR you hit the CTRL + SHIFT + Down shortcut, in a macro, with name Test.

    Then, if you close Notepad++ and open the shortcuts.xml configuration file, with an OTHER editor ( Windows Notepad, Wordpad, or else… ), you’ll easily notice that, in the macro node, this new macro, named Test, is stored as below :

    <Macro name="Test" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">
        <Action type="0" message="2024" wParam="2" lParam="0" sParam="" />
        <Action type="0" message="2339" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
        <Action type="0" message="2024" wParam="1" lParam="0" sParam="" />
        <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="42015" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    </Macro>
    

    It look like that some extra actions are performed, without any purpose ! So, just delete the first three lines <Action ....>. Therefore, the macro description is, now, changed into :

    <Macro name="Test" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">
        <Action type="2" message="0" wParam="42015" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    </Macro>
    

    Finally, save the modifications of the shortcuts.xml file and re-open Notepad++. This time, your Test macro should work nice !

    Note : For the Move Up Current Line action, just change the value of wParam, from 42015 to 42014 !

    Et voilà !

    Best Regards

  • @Jeff-Page @MATEUSZ-BRAK The function list for javascript regression will be fixed in the next release.



  • @Shakespeare-Willian The shortcuts of “Ctrl + Shift + Up” and “Ctrl + Shift + down” not working in macro mode is not a feature.
    Making you ask “is it a feature” is a feature.



  • for when the planned new version?

    Windows 7 64bits - not work.
    6.8.1 - work hide in tray, 6.8.4 - not work.

    Please check again Windows 7 64bits

    I just tested under Windows 7 64bits - works perfect to me.
    Are you sure that you are not running Notepad++ in Administrator mode?

    I think that, yes, the program is run as an administrator. This is my priority. All my programs run automatically from the administrator. I turned off UAC.
    Why did you remove the function minimization to tray in the new versions? Can return? It is necessary to minimize.

    I upgrade to 6.8.5 and the function list is still blank for JavaScript files.
    I will report it on the 6.8.5 thread also.
    Going back to 6.8.3 again.
