Save as on toolbar

  • I’m trying to add a ‘Save as’ button on the toolbar - I have added the customise plug-in and got the menu icons thingy but can’t get any further as I am congenitally stupid. Can anyone help? I would willingly give up the save all button!

  • Hello Bill,

    1. Enable Plugins -> Customize Toolbar -> Custom Buttons.
    2. Create a BMP image for “Save As” and save it in the Config folder (under plugin in the installation folder or %APPDATA%).
    3. In the Config folder you should have a “CustomizeToolbar.btn” file (create it if it doesn’t exist).
      Add the following line to that file: File,Save as...,,,SaveAs.bmp (SaveAs.bmp is the image you should save in the Config folder).
    4. Restart NPP. Plugins -> Customize Toolbar -> Costomize. The “Save as” button should be available; - add it to the toolbar.

    Best regards.

  • Thank you for your reply. Didn’t work. Got this in customise toolbar - customise button error save as…

  • @Bill-Brooks,

    The strings in “CustomizeToolbar.btn” are case-sensitive and therefore the correct line is: File,Save As...,,,SaveAs.bmp. Sorry.

    If your Notepad++ interface language is not English, replace File and Save As... with the exact words used in your menu.

    If it still does not work, please download this ZIP file, extract it and save the BMP image in the Config folder (I assume you’ve located this folder, correct?).

    Good luck and please update.

    Claudia and Guy,

  • OK done all that…and it works! Thank you - didn’t use your icon but did use the knowledge that it was 16x16 and did the swap of the code. Thank you again.

  • You’re welcome.
    I’m glad it works for you.
