    I just download and did my test and it didn’t crash anymore, thx.
    But, to be honest, I’m confused as you stated

    You might be right, I personally cannot find the bug in this case.

    and now it seems you’ve fixed it.
    Did I introduce some weirdness here?
    Just to make it clear, in RC3 it crashed only when using x64
    but was ok with x86 version of Npp.

  • @Ekopalypse

    This issue has been fixed for sure, in my way.
    What @SinghRajenM has tried to say is my assumption for the cause of bug is not correct and there’s more correct way to fix it.
    Sorry for the confusion.

  • How can I change the font in the Find\Replace window boxes? The text is hard to read rather than v7.1.1

    v7.8 - hard to read

    v.7.1.1 - easy to read

    Please confine topics in this thread to critical bugs in the release candidate. This will help focus the developer’s attention to get a solid 7.8 version released. Open a new thread topic for questions such as the one you asked.

    I was not able to reproduce crash on x64. Though, I didn’t use RC3 binary. But I used the latest code complied using VS2019.

    Now with the new change we may get sudden surprises as NppParameters dtor is not called which does some cleanup. Even though, we are calling NppParameters::destroyInstance(), but this call does not delete NppParameters's object which is a local static pointer variable of function static NppParameters& getInstance().
