No preferences saving used notepad++ in WinSCP



  • Hello,
    i use WinSCP with notepad++ as external editor. When i open a file of the server side and set preferences in notepad++, there will no saving this. (example MultiInst, Auto-Completion, …)

    C:\Users\xxx\Portable\npp.7.5.1.bin.minimalist.x64\notepad++.exe -multiInst !.!

    The notepad++ in WinSCP is another version to the notepad++ was i use on Windows 7.

    as a portable version it should have a file doLocalConf.xml (file without content)
    in the same folder where noteapd++.exe is. This informs notepad to read/write the
    config files, like config.xml, within the same directory. Can you double check and see
    if the doLocalConf file exists and if the config.xml does get modified?

    Cheers

  • I found the problem. I use this notepad as -multiInst.
    The problem is a bit tricky. Made settings, whether via Settings->Preferences, or via the menu bar options, are only saved if the instance in which these changes were made was closed. Correct? This can be very confusing with -multiInst and many open instances. I will remember that.

    To be honest, haven’t tested it but I assume this is correct and makes sense.
