Reopen Notepad++ after update, restart or shutdown Windows 10 from where I was
You are perhaps living dangerously with this workflow. If I were you, I would name and save files to disk yourself, and then have a separate backup mechanism that doesn’t involve Notepad++.
@Ekopalypse It did the same thing. This time though I re-opened my file and it was there when I launched NPP this morning. I usually only give Windows half a minute to shut down then force shut down so I’m guessing that this is what’s tripping me up.
Whether fixing the prompt handling would also fix my typical scenario I don’t know. Possibly not.
Half a minute should be more than enough for an app to save its settings but …
I only have win10 in a VM so it isn’t that convinient to do testing on this
and digging through the code didn’t reveal anything obvious.
Just while writing this I think it might be ok to create some tests using
WM messages only and not restarting the VM always.
I’ll come back on this.
I can confirm this as of version 7.9.5.
This is the scenario:
- Notepad++ is open and has several open tabs, both named (=saved) and unnamed (new nn) files
- Windows 10 performs an automated reboot as part of a bigger update overnight
- After logging in, Notepad++ session is lost
- unnamed files can be found on the backup dir, but there is no trace of what saved files were open
Notepad++ can remember the session if I manually reboot the win10.
Would it make sense to backup the complete session information also every time the backup is performed?
Same issue here with latest version of Windows 10 and Notepad++
I opened an issue with my build details.
