Plugin disappeared after latest version update.
Unfortunately, I do not remember the name of the plugin since I installed it years ago. It allowed to to keep a list of code snippets, then type a few characters and hit tab. The “few characters” are the name you gave the snippet.
I had a lot of snippets that I depended on, and now they are gone and I can’t find them anywhere in the Notepad++ folders.
I also can’t seem to find a list of plugins that are incompatible with this latest version of Notepad++.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It would be useful if you would provide the version numbers of Notepad++ before and after updating it. You can get this info via
(menu) ? -> Debug Info. Copy the info to the clipboard and paste it into your next comment.
You can also have a look into the folder where Notepad++ plugins reside. Your plugin DLL file should be still there, it’s simply not loaded. This is caused by changes of the plugin directory structure since Notepad++ v7.6.
Go to directory
<Notepad++-install-dir>\pluginsand look for a DLL file that contains
Snippetsin its name, this should be your missing plugin.
Come back to obtain further instructions.
Thanks for your quick reply.
I went to the plugins folder as you suggested, and saw a file that looked familiar: finger.dll.
Installed it and found that was the one I was missing. It even remembered all of the snippets I had from before.
