Toolbar Wrapping and Multiple Extras After Update Today

  • Morning folks

    I got an alert to update Notepad++ and it has become “wonky”

    For some reason the toolbar is showing 20+ “Show Indent Guide” when launched, and all my changes to the toolbar disappear and will not stay. I have been launching it as an administrator, and it still does not help

    The issue seems to be in the Customize Toolbar plug-in. I removed it and reinstalled the latest version (4.2) thru the admin panel. When removed the toolbar works fine, but that add-in causes the pictures posted below


    Furthermore, if I use the add-in to customize the toolbar and select “Wrap Toolbar” I suddenly end up with three toolbars (did not even know that could happen)

    Removing that add-in allows the toolbar to start as normal (see below)

    I have used Notepad++ for so many years not having it work like normal is driving me nuts

    FYI: I use the 32-bit version for the TextFX plugin. I cannot work without that one

    The debug info below includes the plug-in giving me issues
