Changing keyboard shortcuts
I wanted to change shorcut keybind for Del Line Left, Del Line Right from default Ctrl + Shift + BackSpace, Ctrl + Shift + Delete
Shift + Backspace, Shift + delete
it didn’t let me do do it for BackSpace one. It did let me for Delete one.
But second one didn’t work in praxis.

Unfortunately, I was able to get the behaviour you would like to, for the Backspace key, exclusively. I haven’t find a way to do the same trick, for the Delete key, yet :-((
So, insert the two lines, below, inside the
<ScintillaKeys>.......</ScintillaKeys>node, of the Shortcuts.xml configuration file
<ScintKey ScintID="2326" menuCmdID="0" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="8" /> <ScintKey ScintID="2395" menuCmdID="0" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="yes" Key="8" />
This section describes all the non-default keyboard shortcuts, used in Notepad++ and is, generally, empty, if you just use N++, for the first times !
You MUST edit the Shortcuts.xml file, and save the changes, with an OTHER editor than N++ !!
The Shortcuts.xml file is, generally, located :
In the same directory than Notepad++.exe, in case of a local installation
%AppData%\Roaming\Notepad++folder, in case of installation with the installer, if your system is W7, W8 or W10
%AppData%\Notepad++folder, in case of installation with the installer, if your system is XP, or W95
The 2326 number represents the SCI_DELETEBACK function
The 2395 number represents the SCI_DELLINELEFT function
The key number 8 refers to the classical Backspace key
To get, again, the default shortcut for the DELLINELEFT function, which is Ctrl + Shift + Backspace, just delete the two lines, above, from the
<ScintillaKeys>section, in the Shortcuts.xml file
No. Let me summarize again:
- that keyboard shortcuts are in last tab of Shortcut Mapper - Scintilla commands.
- in this tab, when you want change anything, you have to press Apply button to get accepted changes
- but it did not allow me to do it with backspace. Apply icon went grey - not clickable.
- it did let me do change for delete, but it does not work in real editing. It’s changed succesfully, but not work.
So both things are not useable: shift + backspace for Del Line Left and shift + del for Del Line Right
Can be this pushed as an issue in github page ? Can you please post it ? I can’t because everybody started ignore all my posts, because they are mad on me because I told truth that they are all stupid. Because long months and months I was suggesting very very good new features or fixes of old ones, but they ignored it and didn’t see them so important as I see. Also they did nothing with it to help convince Don Ho or some skilled c/c++ dev to make those changes become real.
This bad experience with np++ community is one of my worst life failures, because I still didn’t start learn programming just because of NP++ in current flustrating stage of unfinished crap.
One cannot normally program in it without getting angry or flustrated in imagination how better it would be when my features will be made. I really can’'t understand in what dev tool are other people programming. Probably in default windows notepad…
I’m very very sad about this people. Everything is huge disappointment for me. I lost motivation to do anything with programming and I started to drink alcohol to not think about it.
I edited it manually according to my needs.
See that shortcut mapper sees it correctly from file:
But NP++ is not working those actions in praxis: DeleteLineLeft as Shift + Backspace and DeleteLineRight as Shift + Delete.
Here is correct keys for keyboards:
8 = backspace
46 = delete
2335 = del word left
2336 = del word right
2395 = del line left
2396 = del line right
That’s why it should be pushed as an error issue !!! Why this shit has been found just now after years of using, not fair
how this settings works in anyone other’s NP++ instance ?
