Notepad++ is broken for enterprise use.
As Admin for severall Thousand noob People in an secure Environment you need to Install Notepad++ in an way where no User can Change anything i dont allow. But Notepad++ gives me no way to Control the use of Plugins or any kind of central provided Configuration.
In an secure Environmet Users should never be apple to Install any Plugin or other Kind of unproved Software.
With tricks like delete the updater Folder we worked so far. But since change of the plugin (why the hell should a user have the right to install any byte of code) its broken for us. We will not update and will search for an other product on mid term.
welcome to the notepad++ community
… need to Install Notepad++ in an way where no User can Change anything i dont allow. But Notepad++ gives me no way to Control the use of Plugins or any kind of central provided Configuration.
if you install version 7.6.2 from here: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v7.6.2.html
you’ve got following options:
if you install it with plugins admin, the user will not be able to install or remove plugins without elevated administrator rights, so it will ask for administrator credentials when trying to change or update any plugins
if you install it without plugins admin, you can deploy your centrally prepared plugins folder to
%PROGRAMDATA%\Notepad++\pluginsand set the folder permissions to read only
In an secure Environmet Users should never be >>>apple<<< to Install any Plugin or other Kind of unproved Software.
very nice typo ;-) i like 🍏👍

Politics need to stay out of programming.
I rather agree with you.
To call something “Notepad++ 7.6.2 Gilet Jaune Edition” or “Notepad++ 6.7.4 - Je suis Charlie edition” seems to me just another form of “advertising”… And remember Plugin Manager…advertisements are bad.

https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/16178/faq-desk-why-does-my-docx-file-look-like-junk-in-notepad is half baked - just need to copy/paste or export to np++.
I’d like to reply to faqs even if they need to be verified before publishing or remain hidden and just considered by maintainer.

Imagine living in a world where people think they need the political opinions from the products they use. I mean how can you know what to support or believe in until your favorite BBQ sauce tells you? We’re somewhere between 1984 and Idiocracy and most likely the latter if you believe this statement is in support of or against any political view.

Really sucks that notepad mix politics and software development.
A software is not a medium to push your political agenda/opinion.

The ones who cry about ads are just that - crybabies.
Plugin manager was awesome. Right now we have useless and ugly plugin admin. Pathetic!

Notepad++ is a free application and its owners are free to do whatever they want.
If they want to do ads they can and should do so to cover their expenses since its users are poor and ungrateful folks who can’t even donate adequately.
If Notepad++ authors want to express their political views, they have full rights to do so as well and it’s a good and brave thing to do.
If you don’t get involved in politics, you are responsible for the consequences of your inaction.

Right. There is no doubt that the old plugin manager was awesome.
Right now we have useless and ugly plugin admin. Pathetic!
It is true that, right now plugin admin is ugly and pathetic. But it is not useless. Day by day it is becoming better and over the period of time, it will also be awesome.
So instead of saying ugly and pathetic in one go, reporting concerns or suggestions if any will be very helpful for the community.

@AgelessDick Maybe they have the right to be politically engaged,
But this does not mean they have to express it, when programming Notepad++

now that @John-Landheer apparently just signed up to ask for this, it’s probably reason enough to start a petition:

I just want to say “F*CK to Notepad++” for its complex macros and shortcut/ menu defining methods.

Thank! This is the best program with which I have ever worked) This program has a world achievement!
… i’m still uncertain, whether you meant what you said and posted it at the wrong place, or you were trying to be sarcastic and deliberately posted it in here …
let’s hope for the first option ;-)
