Notepad++ 7 Release Candidate

  • Hello Don,

    Is there a chance you could make the image crisp when display scaling is used?
    I’ve got Windows 10 x64 1607 on a laptop set to 125% scaling with an external monitor set to 100% (default) and the external monitor is set to be the primary screen.

    Notepad++ 7 RC from the 32bit installer looks great on the external display, but both text and menus get blurry when moved to the laptop screen.

    Some apps expose the same behavior, eg. all Office 2016 apps, KiTTY, even Visual Studio 2015; and some are crisp, like Explorer, Chrome, ConEmu, Windows Settings.

    I know that the article is about WPF, but perhaps it’ll help a little:


  • Why is the Boost library build with property architecture=ia64 for the 64-bit target version?
    According to the documentation that property is for an Itanium target processor and I doubt anyone is running a PC with such a processor. I suspect the majority of the users is running an x86 based processor architecture (yes, even the 64-bit systems) and therefore using the build property address-model=64 for a 64-bit target system makes more sense to me.

  • Hello Don,

    Thank you and thanks to all the contributors for the new version - it’s really awesome!

    I have a feedback regarding the TabBar scroll feature. It is working great but it seems to align the selected tab on the left.
    Here is an example:

    1. Open many documents in N++ (enough to be able to scroll the TabBar).
    2. Select the last Tab - you’ll see it positioned in the right-most side of the TabBar, closest to the scroller buttons.
    3. Minimize N++.
    4. Maximize N++. The last Tab you selected is the only visible tab in the TabBar and it is positioned on the left-most side of the TabBar.

    Although the scroller buttons are visible it is kind of misleading because it looks like the last tab is the only tab opened.

    To summarize - when N++ is restored after minimization and the tab scroller is active the currently active tab is the first visible in the TabBar (the left-most tab) whereas it should be the last visible (the right-most tab in the TabBar respectively).

    Thanks once again.


  • @marcinsmialek I doubt if I can do somethings for it - it’s rather an issue of OS to me.

  • @MAPJe71 Please do a PR for it - I’ll check it.

  • @pnedev I cannot reproduce at all the bug. After minimizing and restoring Notepad++'s position, the selected tab remains the same. Am I missing somethings ?

  • @donho
    PR #2336 as requested.

  • @donho ,
    You are right. The issue I reported several days ago is not observed on native Windows. It seems to be a WINE issue.
    I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, you can disregard the issue. Thanks.

  • @pnedev

    you are right, happens on both of my ubuntus too.


  • Thanks @Claudia-Frank .
