Npp bugging and win10 multi desktop support

  • I have two questions:

    1. Why npp warp my selected string, when I move it by ctrl+shift+arrow down\up? I guess it happens because of “keep indent” enabled. Happens once after start.
    2. When npp will support windows 10 multi desktop(win+tab)? With “keep current window, and open files in tab” enabled, FYI google work with that in this case, have: currentWindow

    Why npp warp my selected string,

    Please provide some detail on this, otherwise no one can offer help.

    When npp will support windows 10 multi desktop

    It is a big effort for Notepad++ people that volunteer their time. Would you like to be a volunteer? :-)

    I will make a video for first

    I’m sorry.

    Nobody here wants to watch a video for something like that, unless it is really tricky (which I doubt).
    Just describe it.

  • 1: It’s not a disease) xd
    2: Sometimes when deleting text (backspace, SCI_LINEDELETE, etc), the text carriage moves a few lines

    ^ Duplicate the line, and delete line by line, part
    dup by CTRL+D 89 - scintilla // SCI_SELECTIONDUPLICATE
    delete by CTRL+SHIFT+D 89 - scintilla // SCI_LINEDELETE

    This is one of the cases of this problem that I managed to repeat, it is difficult to even write down. Sometimes it happens and moves the carriage

    Today I had another case of this problem, I removed the square bracket by backspace in the for loop, and it drop me after block {} on empty line, example:

    	// code
    	for(let [i, {one, two}] of arrofobjs.entries()){ // For some reason I remember that the square brackets were after the `of`
    		// code ~7 lines
    	// drop me up here
    	let x = 0;
    	// code

    if it’s important, for was on ~300 line of ~700 lines

  • @Alan-Kilborn Hi man, how are you? Can you open this thread, I forget to click the replay on the replay message

  • @Vadyanga-0 ,

    @Alan-Kilborn , … Can you open this thread, …

    In case you didn’t understand, this forum is an open forum of Notepad++ users, who read this forum of their own volition, and answer (or not) as mood, ability, and free time permit. We are not employees of, contracted by, or in any other way coerced into helping you or anyone else on this forum. This is not a paid-support forum where you have one case-worker who is assigned to help you, nor do you have any guarantee of a response within a given time. If you want help here, you should be patient, and it helps to be friendly and un-demanding in your phraseology.

    From what I can tell, you’ve hinted at four distinct problems, and haven’t done a good job at trying to clarify for us what you mean in those vague descriptions.

    The video – which was specifically recommended against doing – wasn’t overly helpful for me to understand what’s going wrong. But after multiple times through this thread, I think I might at least understand what you’re trying to say with one of them.

    Some things that would have been useful to tell us:

    • what programming language you’re using? Sometimes the lexer being used will influence behavior.
      • I think it’s javascript, but that’s just a guess.
    • it would have been nice to give us more snippets of code (like you showed in your video, but as text in your post, using the </> button like you did for the shorter snippet later)
    • thanks for at least sharing the Debug Info.

    I cannot get the cursor to jump around after SCI_DELETELINE or backspace or similar. However, I am not using IndentByFold.dll or zoomdisabler.dll plugins. Based on the names of those plugins, I am guessing it might be an interaction with IndentByFold. You could try disabling that plugin, restarting Notepad++, and seeing if your problem persists. (To disable the plugin, use Plugins > Open Plugins Folder…, then exit Notepad++, then rename the IndentByFold\ subfolder to something like disable-IndentByFold (it doesn’t matter what, as long as the folder name no longer matches the name of the DLL), then re-run Notepad++. If the problem still persists, you might want to disable more of the plugins, until the problem goes away. If you want to disable all plugins at once, instead of renaming the individual plugin sub-folders, you can just run Notepad++ as notepad++.exe -noPlugin

    If that’s not sufficient, you’ll have to spend more effort in describing your problem to us, so that we can understand what you’re trying to say, and try to replicate it ourselves.

    However, no matter what, you need to remember to be patient and polite.

  • Just because I’m Russian doesn’t mean I’m so stupid to understand simple things.
    I just forgot to click ‘replay’ when I sent a big message, according to the person who at least answered

    In a few words: when I delete text(SCI_LINEDELETE\backspace) or move text (using ctrl+shift+arrows), the text carriage can arbitrarily jump

    1. It’s js, you right
    2. skip
    3. You are welcome

    I just tried -noPlugin, and withPlugins before, so issue is in one of the plugins
    And yes, it’s IndentByFold.dll plugin problem :(

    I guess, ticket is solved. But I have two questions, (still) first one:

    • when win10 multi desktop support expected?

    I want, having two different virtual desktops, to have two independent npp editors
    +I do not know where to go with this request
    ++Can you forward this feature somewhere?

    and the second one:

    • Are there any plugins that can help me to format text(js\css\html etc) using a button? #offtop just asking

    I’m also know about the sites, I want something built-in (I even saw the music player in the plugin manager, lyl)
