Why doesn't the spell check work in a macro?
Notepad++ 7.7, 64 bit.
I have a text file which consist of many lines, one word per line (dictionary).
Many words are misspelled and I want to run the DSpellCheck (or any) to spot the misspelled words and then bokkmark them for further processing.
Creating a macro that will find the next misspelled word (Alt-N), bookmark it, (Ctrl-F2) and then move to the next line works fine. However, when I run the macro it completely ignores the spell check and bookmark every line instead.
Why doesn’t the spell check work in a macro?
using plugins within macros might, as you already discovered, fail simply because
plugins might act on events which aren’t fired in case of macro execution.
I don’t know the internals of DSpellCheck plugin so I can’t be 100% sure but I assume this
is what is going on.
That sounds 100% accurate. I’ll stick to another text editor from now on …
Notepad++ is crap because of poor rules for plugins!
