Some Questions about the 'Find' dialog



  • Ok, I have “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\shortcuts.xml” and “C:\Users\fade2gray\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\shortcuts.xml”; they are identical and neither contain anything pertaining to Key=“99”.

    In the above, does the latter file location indicate that i have an appdata configuration? (I didn’t change any configuration settings during installation except to add shortcut to desktop).

    Looking in the Shortcut Mapper I can only find the default setting of Alt+C assigned to Column Editor, but pressing Alt+C does not open the Column Editor dialog, I find it can only be invoked by selecting it from the Edit menu (again, this makes no difference regarding extra plugins).



  • @fade2gray

    let’s put it this way, a local configuration is detected when a file doLocalConf.xml has been created in npp install directory.
    The column editor appears only if an editor has the focus. Can you post the debug-info? Is available under the ? menu.

    Cheers

    Here you go,

    Notepad++ v6.8.8
    Build time : Dec 10 2015 - 01:11:37
    Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : OFF
    Local Conf mode : OFF
    OS : Windows 7
    Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll PluginManager.dll


  • hmmm, perplexed.
    Can you try a minimalistic version?
    Just unzip and run it.

  • Hmm - this gets more interesting,

    Done as you requested and find exactly the same behaviour with the Find dialog when running the executable from the archive (note: Debug info = Local Conf mode : ON).

    Now then, I also have 6.8.8 installed on my laptop (upgraded from an earlier version of which I can’t remember) that performs as expected, i.e. Alt+c works to toggle ‘Match case’.

    On the main PC, I had had problems with the plugin manager constantly prompting me to update two plugins that I had previously installed but removed, and for some reason they no longer appeared in the ‘Available’ or ‘Installed’ list and wouldn’t update. That was at version 6.6.4 which I uninstalled prior to installing 6.8.8.

    All I can think of doing now is to try a removal and reinstall of 6.8.8. Do you have any tips on how I should perform a fully clean install, e.g. are there any registry entries and directories I should pay particular attention to?



  • really strange.
    When uninstalling delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++ directory afterwards,
    as well as the %APPDATA% notepad++ directory and
    HKLM->Software->Notepad++ should have been deleted.

    Even I hope that this will fix your problem I’m not confident that it will.

    Well, your fears were unfounded, I followed what you outlined, reinstalled my favourite plugins and UDLs and all is well. :-)

    Thanks for you assistance.

    N.B. I have a niggling feeling that when I initially uninstalled 6.6.4 I failed to remove the ‘…\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++’ folder before installing 6.8.8, so there may have been something historically amiss in there.



  • I also notice that Alt+C now correctly opens the ‘Column Editor’ without having to call it from the Edit menu.



  • @fade2gray

    good to see that problem is gone but bad to know that this is another
    “what was causing this issue”
    I assume corrupt xml but which one…
