Notepad++ 7.5.7 release



  • @donho There is a modification in plugin distribution with this version not mentioned in the release notes at all. This breaks compatibility with PluginManager.
    DSpellcheck is still 1.3.5 with https://github.com/Predelnik/DSpellCheck/releases/tag/v1.4.5 to be the current one.

    Which one? Could you provide me more detail?



  • The plugin dlls are no longer directly located under the plugin folder, but have a subfolder named like the plugin, e.g. …\plugins\DSpellCheck.dll is now …\plugins\DSpellCheck\DSpellCheck.dll

    The loading behaviour is retro-compatible, but indeed the new plugin file system is applied to the new release.



  • There is a regression that reopens https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/pull/2347

    The plugin menu is no longer sorted alphabetically.

  • Hi all,

    The language menu is not sorted alphabetically.

    @donho thank you for the new version



  • This broke the ÅÄÖ, when encrypting/decrypting messages with notepad++



  • Did somebody understand the last comment? What is broken? Where? How messages are encrypted and decrypted in Notepad++? I don’t have any idea.



  • The Queue Overflow Bug has reappeared. I am getting slow response times and finally a small dialog with “Queue Overflow”. This is the version I downloaded and installed yesterday, 2018-07-10.



  • Hi there,

    Thanks for Notepad++ and for the new version.
    This seems to be a new bug:
    In 7.5.7 when I open .js files the function list does not work (stays empty). In 7.5.6 the problem does not occur.

    Thank you,
    Wouter



  • I just installed 32-bit 7.5.7 on Win7 Pro, and it reliably crashes when closing the last file or the app itself, and randomly at other times (but also when opening or closing files). This is entirely atypical for this great product. I will try downgrading to the previous version and see what happens.

    Downgrading to 7.7.6 removed this annoying tendency to crash - it must be something you guys did in 7.5.7. I will stay with 7.5.6 for now.

    Anyway, thanks for the great work!



  • Installed Notepad++ v7.5.7 (64bit) on reset Windows 10 Pro system on July 4. Function List is not working with Perl. It does work with other languages that I’ve tried (C, javascrpt), but not Perl. I tried using a functionList.xml from previous version, but still doesn’t work with Perl.
    Before I reset my system (reinstalled Windows), I did have function list working with 7.5.6, but I can’t seem to get it back.



  • Ever since I installed the update I cannot replace ellipses with … For some reason this causes my file to go haywire. If I try to change three full stops (rather than an ellipse) to … the whole file just becomes …
    Never had this problem before so will be downgrading.



  • Hello, @helen-smith,

    If you don’t mind, some questions, first :

    • What was your previous N++ version ? I suppose that your downloaded one is the latest ( v7.5.7. ) ?

    • Probably, when mentioning ellipses, you’re speaking about the horizontal ellipsis ( of Unicode value \x{2026}). Refer below :

    http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2000.pdf

    • Could you provide the Debug Info information ( Menu ? > Debug Info... )

    ( BTW, it’s funny to see that, in all software, a sub-dialog/window is, generally, announced with 3 dots as, for instance, File > Print... instead of the syntax File > Print… ! )

    • Which is the current encoding of the file, where you want to replace ellipses with usual dots ? ( Have a look to the right part of the status bar, downwards )

    • Is the ellipsis character correctly displayed or do you see a white or black square or a question mark, meaning that you current font cannot display its glyph, properly ?

    • Why do you need to do such search/replacement ?

    See you later,

    Best Regards,

  • I presume my previous version was v7.5.6? I don’t take much notice tbh. I only know that after producing files for 4 e-books suddenly this time I was unable to do what I have done before. The only difference being that I installed the new version before I started. I have now downloaded the previous version and hope that solves the problem.
    Yes, I did mean horizontal ellipsis.
    Sorry, I have already changed versions so would not be able to provide debug info. Had I known about that I would have done it first. As for why I need to do it, I am converting a word file book into the html file needed for a stable e-book that will convert into any format and still look the way I want it to. (conversion programmes always create problems) I could not find a ‘convert selection to entities’ option, so have been doing it all by search and replace.
    As you have probably guessed, I am not very experienced with Notepad++ or html.

  • Hello, @helen-smith, and All,

    OK, Helen. Some of my questions don’t have an answer, yet, but I understood that you would like to use the HTML entities !

    The Horizontal Ellipsis, of Unicode value 2026, can be written as an HTML entity, with these 3 syntaxes :

    … or … ( Decimal value ) or … ( Hexadecimal value )


    So, here are, below, some regex S/R, in order to change any Horizontal Ellipsis into its appropriate HTML entity :

    • Open the Replace dialog ( Ctrl + H )

    • Select the Regular expression search mode ( IMPORTANT )

    • Tick the Wrap around option

    • In the Find what: zone, type in \x{2026} OR ( The ellipsis itself ! )

    • In the Replace with: zone, type in … OR … OR …

    • Click on the Replace All button

    => Every occurrence of the horizontal ellipsis character will be changed into its HTML entity

    Note : The different HTML entities of characters, with Unicode value between \x{2000} and \x{206F}, can be found from that link :

    https://www.w3schools.com/charsets/ref_utf_punctuation.asp


    Now, you could be interested by the HTMLTag N++ plugin, which can encode character to its appropriate HTML entity and vice-versa ! So :

    • Downloaded the HTMLTag_plugin_v1.0.0_unicode.zip OR the HTMLTag_plugin_1.0.0_64.zip archive from the link below :

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-plugins/files/HTMLTag/HTMLTag plugin v1.0.0

    • Close Notepad++

    • Extract the contents of the archive in the %AppData%\Notepad\plugins folder of your configuration

    • Restart Notepad++

    • Now, use the menu option Plugins > HTML Tag > Encode entities, or the Ctrl + E shortcut, to change the selected into …

    • And use the menu option Plugins > HTML Tag > Decode entities, or the Ctrl + Shift + E shortcut, to change the selected … OR … OR … HTML entity into the Horizontal Ellipsis

    Best Regards,

    guy038

    P.S. :

    In case your text contains three consecutive full stop ( ... ) as an approximation of the Horizontal ellipsis character, you can search then :

    • In Regular expression search mode , with the syntaxes \.\.\. OR \Q...\E

    • In Normal search mode , with the simple syntax ...



  • @guy038 Many thanks for that I will try the plugin next time as I have now sorted my file after re-installing v7.5.6
    The way you describe searching for the ellipses and replacing all with … is exactly what I had been doing but in v7.5.7 it just scrambled my file or replaced every character with … if I searched for three dots (in case any had not successfully converted to ellipses in the original word file)
    As for the other questions, sorry, I answered in a rush and missed them.
    I cannot tell you the current encoding of the file as I deleted it the other day (though I am not really sure what you mean anyway)
    The ellipsis characters were correctly displayed before I tried to change them to … I did not see any white or black squares or question marks.
    Now I have gone back to 7.5.6 everything has worked properly. The ellipses and all other entities converted properly with no problems at all so I can only assume it is a bug in v7.5.7
    Thanks for taking the time to answer and letting me know about the plugin. Hopefully, that will make preparing my e-books much quicker and more reliable.
    As



  • Longtime fan - first-time bug report.
    **I noticed the Find feature isn’t working. See the linked image below. **

    I searched for a word the normal way, no luck.
    Then I tried selecting all the text and finding the word, no luck again.
    The find on the Replace tab doesn’t work.
    The new find » button doesn’t work either.
    The count button works
    The Find All in Current Document works

    I use this feature a lot in Notepad++.
    For now, I’ll roll back to an earlier version.

    When I encounter the simple done well, I pause - reflect and say, thank you.
    So, thank you again, for your ongoing efforts to make such an amazing text editor.

    with a handshake,
    Joe
