Comare Plugin not showing up in Plugin
I have Copied ComparePlugin.dll to C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins.
Closed the notepad++ and reopened, but compare plugin is not showing up.
Can you please let me know what should I do.
Depending on the npp version you use the setup is different.
Can you post your debug info, which is available from the ? menu?.
Here is the Info
Notepad++ v7.8.4 (32-bit)
Build time : Jan 29 2020 - 01:33:47
Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : OFF
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS Name : Windows 10 Enterprise (64-bit)
OS Version : 1903
OS Build : 18362.592
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll
ok, two notes,
Local Conf mode : OFFmeans that configuration files and plugins are located and searched in %appdata%\notepad++
and second, because this is a newer version you have
to create a folder with the same name as the plugin to make it
work which means you need to have a directory
but may I ask you why you don’t use the PluginAdmin to do the installation?
Sir, Thank you for your suggestion. By creating compareplugin Folder it worked.
But How do I use PluginAdmin ?
From the plugins menu you should have a Plugins Admin item
if you click it a dialog should open and you can check which plugins you want to install. Plugin Admin takes care to download
it and put it into the correct places.
Thank you Very much. You really saved a lot of time for me.
Can you please help me , where do I get tricks and Tips for Notepad++.
There might so many features available in Notepadd++ but we are using very little out of it , We used to see other friends , how they use notepad++. Like removing Tabs to spaces is one feature available, I found it while someone was doing it.
Instead is there a place we can see all help full feature available in Notepad++.
the only source I’m aware of is the official documentation here.
It might not handle everything but I would say most of it.
