Feature Request: Support for opening large files



  • I often use Notepad++ to view large log files, I frequently run into the ‘File open problem - File is too big to be opened by Notepad++’ dialog.

    I propose adding support for opening only portions of files which Notepad++ can’t traditionally open, perhaps using the existing document map to graphically show the section of the file which is open, and showing where the open portion is in relation to the wider document. This way a user can actually read an entire document by dynamically unloading and loading portions.
