how many pages will print



  • Where can I see how many pages will print if I print the document?
    Thank you.

    In the paper tray.

    Sorry, that sounds like a snarky answer, but in Notepad++, it’s the technically-correct answer. Because of line-wrapping, WYSIWYG-printing-vs-not, etc, there isn’t just a simple formula that Notepad++ can use to determine how many actual pages will end up being printed, so it doesn’t even try.

    If you have a print-to-PDF printer defined in Windows (Microsoft often installs one with MS Office; or there are freeware alternatives, like PDFCreator provides), you can print to PDF first, which will then tell you the number of pages (and then you can either print again from Notepad++, but this time to paper; or you can print from your PDF viewer instead).

    These two already-existing issues are related to your request. If one or both of them are ever implemented, you would get the info you want “for free”. Unfortunately, with how old they are, the chances are they won’t be implemented.
