Notepad++ 7.8 Release



  • @geminorum,

    Sorry, I’m not a SciTE expert. It might be in the Options rather than the View.



  • @geminorum said in Notepad++ 7.8 Release:

    maybe I’m wrong, but seems to me that the RTL layout is NPP feature.

    the order of words are reversed in NPP:

    then again is correct on SciTE:
    Sc423_2019-12-11_04-33-26.png

    the raw text:

    سیر خیال هستی رنگ فضولیی داشت
    از خجلت جدایی یاد عدم نکردم
    

    also, the wrong selection of unicode strings is also appears on SciTE.

    checked all the menus. maybe it’s on SciTE config file.

    according to this, SciTE does not support RTL or Bidi.



  • hi all. i have not posted before but since i think i have the solution i thought i should jump in.

    @geminorum i see from your plugins screenshot you have the jN scripting plugin (and maybe other scripting plugins that i cant see) installed. if i can first of all point you to the relevant part of the scintilla docs at https://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaDoc.html#SCI_SETTECHNOLOGY
    so im assuming you (or some other script you maybe dont know about) have changed the rendering technology away from the default 0 setting. i do the same because i think it looks better (in ltr english of course!). anyway this is your problem as i can reproduce exactly the results you describe. set this setting back to 0 (default) will fix your issue, or at least it did for me!

    I have multiple instances of NPP with and without jN, and actually not using any scripts. (just installed to use my own js lib on NPP which was a failure.)

    we were talking about multiple issues:

    • problem on RTL layout switch: caused by a plugin: DSpellCheck x64 v1.4.15
    • problem with reversed order of words on unicode strings: appears on NPP, no problem on SciTE.
    • problem with reversed left/right arrow key in RTL: very old one, since I remember using NPP. multiple reported issues on github and almost every time, dismissed as Scintilla’s. (which apperanlty caused by NPP, because Scintilla has no support for RTL layout.)
    • problem with unicode text selection on LTR and RTL, that appears on both SciTE and NPP. with multiple reported issues on github.

    set this setting back to 0 (default) will fix your issue, or at least it did for me!

    the SciTE that I used for test, has no config file, supposedly with default settings. but I will try the config once I can figure out how to set them in SciTE.

    and thank you for your input.

    correction: the problem is only on LTR layout (both NPP and SciTE). on NPP in RTL is working fine.



  • @geminorum yeah, sorry, i wasnt clear. i was talking specifically about the rtl switch issue not the others. somehow i guess i missed the post where you said dspellcheck was the culprit so i didnt know you had fixed it at the time. maybe just a coincidence that i had replicated the exact issue as you described with a different plugin that you also happened to have installed… so weird!



  • even weirder still, the dspellcheck plugin does NOT cause that issue at my end!
