Add shortcut for closing unsaved file?

  • Hey everybody! I have a small feature request for NP++. I didn’t see an area here specifically for feature requests (there often are), so I hope it’s okay to post it here.

    When you try to close a new or changed document that you don’t need to save, NP++ asks:

    alt text

    In most apps, there’d be a keyboard shortcut for “No”—but there isn’t here. So you must either use the right-arrow key to move the highlight to “No” before you press Enter; or grope for the mouse, zero in on the small button, and click.

    This may not seem like a big deal. And it’s not, really, in the grand scheme of things. However, I close a lot of unsaved files in my work (as I often use NP++ for temporary, copied/pasted edits), so it’d really be nice if you’d add the standard Alt+N shortcut there, if you have time. Thanks!

  • Wow, sorry about the giant image… That’s just how the forum displayed it. The original is life-size.

  • Oops, no, sorry, my mistake—the original was that big. (Not enough coffee, obviously.)

    But I see no way to edit my original post. (On the forum of an editing app? Is that ironic or what?) So here’s how it should’ve looked:

    alt text

    Re-image-postingly, A.

  • Maybe enough already from this program to arrange a theater ?!
    The program has been around for many years with no definition of the encoding of files and transcoding of the file but another encoding … this is clearly visible with the Cyrillic alphabet !!!

    I was quite pleased to see this as a new “feature” of v7.8.2! What a good feeling when developers care enough to listen, even to small requests like this one. Thank you!
