Notepad++ stuck in refresh loop

  • Not sure how I did it (might have been moving back a file from a second View to the original View), but somehow Notepad++ gets stuck in a refresh loop where it’s constantly trying to redraw. I had to kill the process, but since I have Notepad++ saving my session on close, the refresh issue would resume on restart (running Notepad++ v6.9.2 on Windows 10 - only default plugins are installed).

    Anyway, I got around the issue by renaming my session.xml, but here’s the contents of that file (some names altered for privacy), in case it helps you debug anything…

    P.S. Thanks for the great application! Been using it for years…

    <Session activeView=“1”>
    <mainView activeIndex=“2”>
    <File firstVisibleLine=“0” xOffset=“0” scrollWidth=“1” startPos=“827” endPos=“827” selMode=“0” lang=“Pascal” encoding="-1" filename=“C:\” backupFilePath="" originalFileLastModifTimestamp=“1472533053” />
    <File firstVisibleLine=“935” xOffset=“0” scrollWidth=“640” startPos=“41119” endPos=“41119” selMode=“0” lang=“XML” encoding="-1" filename=“C:\Alerts.xml” backupFilePath="" originalFileLastModifTimestamp=“1472149927” />
    <File firstVisibleLine=“0” xOffset=“0” scrollWidth=“1816” startPos=“1588” endPos=“1606” selMode=“0” lang=“Normal Text” encoding="-1" filename=“new 1” backupFilePath=“C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup\new 1@2016-08-30_222936” originalFileLastModifTimestamp=“0” />
    <subView activeIndex=“1”>
    <File firstVisibleLine=“0” xOffset=“0” scrollWidth=“1” startPos=“859” endPos=“859” selMode=“0” lang=“Normal Text” encoding="-1" filename=“C:\sgenroll.txt” backupFilePath=“C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup\sgenroll.txt@2016-08-31_160935” originalFileLastModifTimestamp=“1472684962” />
