Find and Replace bug: first instance replaced with font name?



  • I’m having a lot of trouble using the find and replace function at the moment. When doing either replace all, or clicking through replace multiple times, the first instance of a string being replaced is always filled in with the same number of characters as a font name

    Using a working example, for starting text:

    "%chk=Geom1_ome_SK.chk
    %mem=76MW
    %nproc=2
    #P mpwb95/cc-pvtz extrabasis IOp(3/76=0690003100)
    geom=check SCF=tight int=ultra

    SP calc SK on MPW1B95 6-31G* GEOM1. MPW1B95/maug-cc-pvtz

    0 1

    @C_O_ccpvtz_diffusebasis.gbs/N"

    Using find a replace to try and swap the string pvtz for abcd would instead give me:

    "%chk=Geom1_ome_SK.chk
    %mem=76MW
    %nproc=2
    #P mpwb95/cc-Cour extrabasis IOp(3/76=0690003100)
    geom=check SCF=tight int=ultra

    SP calc SK on MPW1B95 6-31G* GEOM1. MPW1B95/maug-cc-abcd

    0 1

    @C_O_ccabcd_diffusebasis.gbs/N"

    Replaced strings highlighted in bold. If replacing with a string longer than the one in this example i get “Courier NewNUL” followed by the remainder of the correct string. Again this only occurs in the first string replaced.

    I have no idea what is causing this but its causing me real problems! I can’t find any similar examples of the problem. Unfortunately its a controlled installation on a university computer so I may not be able to access to parts of it or update the version (I’m using V6.0)

    Any help much appreciated!



  • @Tom-Hall

    have npp6.0 available and tried to replicate this issue, wasn’t successful.
    What I’ve did is

    • copied your sample text
    • double click on one instance of pvtz
    • pressed ctrl+h
    • put in abcd in “replace with” field (“find what” was already filled)
    • used replace or replace all and all instances of pvtz got replaced by abcd - as expected.

    Can you confirm this behavior by using same steps?
    Btw. do you have any plugins installed?

    Cheers
