Inserting a tag around selection



  • Hello!
    Is there a possibiity in Notepad++ to include the selected part of a text in an (X)HTML or an XML tab, such as we can specify that this text is to display in bold and italic?
    Thanks for your help



  • Hi Jean-Pierre Moularde,
    not as a native function, as far as I know.
    What could be done is writing a python script to do it
    but therefore you need to install the python plugin.
    I wrote what needs to be done here.

    So code could be a two liner like

    seltext = editor.getSelText()
    editor.replaceSel('<open>{0}</open>'.format(seltext))
    

    This would set the text <open> before and </open> after your selection.
    The {0} is where you selection will be put in.

    If anything is unclear let us know.

    Cheers
    Claudia
