Can Notepad++ warn me when it is wrapping around to top of file?

  • When searching for text, I see that you can configure Notepad++ to “wrap around” to the top of the file. Very handy. Is there an option for it to alert me when it does that? Maybe by opening up a alert box?

    Sometimes I wrap around to the top of the file without realizing it.

    If you are doing this search with the Find dialog open, the “status bar” of that dialog will get some green text when the wrap-around occurs (maybe not so noticeable). If you are doing the search with the find-next or find-previous commands with the Find dialog closed, the Notepad++ window title bar and frame will flash briefly when the wrap-around happens (much more noticeable – you’ve never seen it do this?).

  • Cool. It does flash. Thanks for the help!
