Remember file type



  • Greetings,

    When I open a file, I always change the file type to Batch file (*.bat, .cmd, .nt). However, the next time I click the Open… button, it forgot my selection, and is showing All types (.) again.

    Is there any way to have it remember my selection?

    Thanks,
    Shane.

    I don’t think so, and the reason is that there is probably little demand for it. With a general purpose tool such as Notepad++, and the plethora of text file types (extensions) out there…well, I guess that’s an explanation.



  • I see what you’re saying, but it would be nice to at least have the option to remember my setting. Productivity is important for me.

    The asterisks in my original post seems to have changed some words to italic. This forum is a bit buggy.

    Shane.

    No, putting something inside a pair of asterisks means to italicize everything between. You seem to understand that in your second posting, where you italicized the word option. :-)

    That makes sense…but Notepad++ can’t do it in its current form. The proper method for asking for a feature is described here if you choose to pursue it.
