XML Pretty Print no longer working?

I pretty much depend on a daily basis on bringing in files with XML and “Pretty Print” with the XML Tools… I usually bring in XML content files and hit “Ctrl+a” (select all) followed by “Ctrl+Alt+Shift+B” to pretty print…
Since, I believe the latest update of NPP to 7.8.6, this feature no longer appears to work?
I noticed there was an update available for the XML tools to 220.127.116.11 and just updated that too (significantly re-organised menus and options, but still same keypress for Pretty Print).
Really sorry - I just tend to install the updates as soon as they’re ready - so not entirely sure of “previous” versions of each, but assume “the latest, whatever comes with NPP Updates” (This time though I specifically noticed the Plugin update and applied that separately).
BUT: The XML just remains there in one, unreadable lump :(
Closed / reloaded NPP and the files - still fails…
Renamed the FILES from .log to .xml…
Now it works!
So - I don’t think it works in the same context as before - usually selecting “Language XML” for files where it wasn’t obvious in filename, or fresh “cut & paste” into a new document (to syntax highlight)…
My .log files WERE highlighted with XML (and I DID try selecting XML language before Pretty Print)…
So there’s a NEW dependency on the FILENAME being .XML?

Hmm… Seems to work OK today - regardless of filename or “no file” saved yet… Thanks for the pointer to the “correct” place though :-)
