    1. In 32-bit version, “Minimize to Tray” does’t function.

    i can not reproduce a problem with “Minimize to Tray” on notepad++ v7.6.6. 32 bit.
    eventually you have to set windows to show all tray icons, if you don’t see the notepad++ tray icon when minimised.

    1. In 64-bit version, frequent corruption happens when use chinese IME(Window7 64-bit).

    do you have a sample text and a screenshot you can provide ?

    1. Comment format for ini files can be shown only when comment is in the starting position. If put the comment in the end of sentences, the format can’t be shown.

    unfortunately this is a scintilla component limitation of the ini lexer.
    similar issues exist with bash and are currently not fixed at the scintilla project.

    you will have to file a bug report or feature request directly at the scintilla project here: https://sourceforge.net/p/scintilla/bugs/

    alternatively you can create or use a custom .ini user defined language, which will work independently to custom needs.
    e.g. the demo ConfigIni.xml, as seen at the screenshot below, which you can customise to your needs.
    (for newer notepad++ versions like 7.6.6, just download ConfigIni.xml or any other udl, and copy it to your userDefineLangs folder, which is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\userDefineLangs on default 32 bit installations)

    other than that there is currently nothing the notepad++ dev team can do about this at the notepad++ part.
    we apologise for that.

    best regards

    Thank you very much for your reply!

    My system: Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1

    1. Bug 1:
      in Notepad++ 7.6.6 (32-bit & 64-bit)
      Menu settings - Preferences - MISC. - Minimize to system tray
      Though tick this checkbox, the expected trayicon does’t appear when minimized. And I’m sure that “show all tray icons” has been set in Windows.

    Before I found it worked well in Notepad++ 64-bit and I just reported for 32-bit. But now I found in both version it didn’t function. So this option is quite unstable.

    1. Bug2:
      in Notepad++ 7.6.6 (64-bit only)
      When enter some text using Chiinese IME(QQ wubi), often stops responding and I have to kill the process in the task manager. In 32-bit notepad++ it never happened. When and In which condition it will happen, I can’t confirm tempararily because it occurs casually. As there isn’t any error message and just stop responding, so the screenshot just shows the normal status before the problem. If in the future I find any special text that can cause the error, I’ll report again.

    2. About comment format of ini files
      I had tried hard to use a user defined language long time ago and I tried yesterday and today. I can get the expected effect for comment, but the section effect lost. In default ini format, contents in square brackets “[]” shows specially only when at the beginnig of a line. And in my user defined language, it shows anywhere. I don’t know how to get the section format like default one.

    Best Regards!
