NPP 7.8.5 breaks CustomizeToolbar plugin



  • Hello,

    after upgrading from 7.8.4 to 7.8.5, my CustomizeToolbar button is always disabled. It’s still there (well, not quite, it changed its position to the right end of the toolbar) but it’s disabled all the time. Can’t click on it anymore.

    Downgrading to 7.8.4 made it work again.

    I’m not sure who would be the right person to talk to about this plugin. But something must have changed in NPP 7.8.5 to break it.

    What can I do now, besides not upgrading NPP again?

    It’s the 32-bit build on Windows 10.



  • Hmm … don’t have Windows 10 and using 64bit,
    but for me Customize Toolbar is working with Npp 7.8.5

    Maybe you wanna give it a try to test with a portable version to see
    if there is an issue with your setup? Maybe an issue with another plugin
    you have installed?



  • Okay, the breaking change in Notepad++ 7.8.5 was the menu structure. In the menu “Ansicht” (View), the submenu “Nicht druckbare Zeichen” (Non-printable characters) has been renamed to “Symbole anzeigen” (Show symbols). Since the custom toolbar button plugin only reads the menu titles (and doesn’t use persistent and language-invariant IDs like everybody else), it will break whenever something has been renamed there.
