FAQ Desk: Feature Request or Bug Report
PeterJones last edited by guy038
Hello, and welcome to the FAQ Desk. You have likely been directed here because you asked for a new feature to be added to Notepad++, or have reported a bug, in the Notepad++ Community Forums.
Feature requests and bug reports have a better chance of being noticed in the official Notepad++ Issues tracker on the GitHub project; simply, click on the green
New issuebutton, on the right of that issues page at https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues. The maintainer occasionally reads some threads on these Community Forums, but it’s not guaranteed that a feature request in the Forums will be noticed or followed up on. Requests on GitHub aren’t guaranteed to be implemented, either (it’s a volunteer coding effort, after all), but the chances are better. You can search the existing issues for your idea by typing keywords in the search box.
If you want to reference an existing github issue in these Notepad++ forums (ie, discuss a bug or request here), you can link to the issue using
[issue#____](https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues/____)in your post here. If you create an issue related to your original post, please insert such a link as a reply to your original post, so readers of that post will be able to find out what the status is on the issue.
If your new feature request or bug report is really for a plugin, your best bet is the specific plugin’s GitHub Issues (or equivalent).
