CNTRL+ALT+LEFT/RIGHT global to all the tabs



  • The CNTRL + ALT + LEFT/RIGHT control is global to all the tabs. Is there any good reason for this? Personnally, I would much prefer this control be local to each tab.

    I assume we need more details what you try to achieve?

  • What am I trying to achieve?
    Well, the CNTRL+ALT+LEFT/RIGHT control allows to switch from left to right to right to left editing. When I am editing from right to left in one tab of the editor, I don’t want the other tab written in English be switched to right to left view too. But this is not possible because this switch is global to all the tabs. What is needed, in my opinion, is to make this control local for each tab.

    OK, now I see. To your info, the default key combination
    for RTL/LTR view is CTRL+ALT+R and L.
    To your question, well I would assume that one who is
    working with RTL view would argue, that it doesn’t make sense that it is needed
    to enable this always. You see - many different usings lead to too many different
    configurations.

    Of course we could discuss whether npp should allow to have it set globally or per tab
    but this basically means someone need to write code.
    So if you are able to write good c++ code you are welcome to provide such solution.
