html: double closing tags



  • My NPP x86 v7.5.9 completes HTML tags with a double closing tag like this: “<b></b></b>”, and has done so since v6. Is this an NPP bug or an installation error? My guess is that it would be an easy fix, but it’s been that way for a year or more, so it might not be.



  • Try to do so:



  • Thanks! Never thought that was the problem. When I removed the checkmark, the extra closing tag disappears. Seems counter-intuitive, since the default is one closing tag included - but it works.

    we are glad you got it running again. 👍

    this is not a default notepad++ behaviour, but maybe you have an extra notepad++ plugin installed, that is capable of auto-completing closing tags, so if both engines are enabled, you will get two closing tags.
    (i think this seems to be the most logical reason)

    but as long as just one of the 2 installed auto-closing tags features is enabled, you are good to go.
