bug in tab names

  • take a look at these two tab names:



    first happened in one tab (after moving) and then on the second one!

    is this just for info or do you need help identifying the root of the cause?
    If the latter is the case, see here.

    the first thing I would try is running npp without plugins
    either by running it with the commandline switch -noPlugin
    or by, temporarily, renaming the plugin folder.

    If this solves your issue, which I assume it does, then you could
    reactivate one plugin after the other to see which one is the causing one.

    I do suspect the autosave plugin - just because of its feature to save files.

    If disabling plugins doesn’t help and npp is still showing this behavior,
    I would give it a try to use the official portable npp version.
    Just because I know that portableapps do something in addition to make
    npp be portable. Download one of the .zip/.7z versions from the npp homepage.


  • I didn’t use portableapps to download npp,
    that’s just the name of the folder that I keep all my portable applications,
    npp among them, I always download npp from the original website (yours),
    after restarting npp the strange name in tab names was gone and it hasn’t appeared again, it was just a random one I think like another one I posted a while back
    (and it still exists) with random crashes of npp on app exit

    npp among them, I always download npp from the original website (yours),

    Just to make sure - I’m a npp user as you are- I haven’t developed npp.
    The credit goes to @Don-HO .

    it was just a random one I think like another one

    hard to track down in such cases - just can say that I never experienced such thing.


  • ok for the first one, I didn’t know,
    but anyway, I like npp a lot,
    I’ve got a very old ue version aside
    just for my second editor,
    I hated it when it became so heavy,
    npp is my main editor,
    one of the reasons is that it’s very light

    and I like your help here too,
    your contribution makes npp a much better editor

    anyway, about the last part:
    I know and I agree that it should be some plugin,
    maybe autosave, but I need it too and
    I think those crashes/misbehaviors are minor in
    comparison to what it offers,
    since I got used to it (and my other plugins)
