How to increase length of text in Tools->MD5->Generate Box?



  • Since v7.3 that has build-in feature in menu Tools->MD5 but i found that there have some limitation of chars in generate box. I think it has limit at 30,000 of characters.

    How to increase this limit?

    Thank you
    Jimmy



  • In Notepad++ v7.5.6 (32 bit) this issue still exists. I guess that this is a limitation of the underlying Windows control, thus you can’t do anything to change that behaviour.

    But you can use the ToolBucket plugin. It provides the ability to calculate MD5 and SHA-1 hashes from much larger files. I have tested it with a 148 kB text file right now. Small drawback: the hash value is inserted into the loaded file at the current cursor position.



  • Thank you, it works
