  • Hi, @don-ho and All,

    Yes, I know, : I should sleep right now ! Anyway, I did a quick test and comparing with N++ v7.8.5 everything works fine !

    I can use, again, the Shift+ F3 shortcut ;-))

    I did not expect such a quick response from you to my request. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart !

    Cheers,

  • Wow, fantastic! Now I can go to sleep…



  • Is there any list with listing all such no-UI options? I’m asking because I have seen such hidding settings somewhere but I cannot locate them. It would be good to make and put such a list somewhere.



  • Maybe this could be an option in Preferences / Misc. under the other find options (Don’t fill… / Monospaced …).



  • @donho said in 7.8.7 Release Candidate 4:

    1. Add count of files searched to ‘Find result’ output.

    So in looking at that, I must say the “…of X searched” is a nice addition.

    And I hesitate to call this a critical bug, but I noticed that the singular has now become plural:

    db552d48-d954-474a-b3ff-bdf4a757fe12-image.png

    It sure seems like 1 hits should be 1 hit.
    And 1 files should be 1 file.
    Indeed, checking 7.8.6 it IS the singular form for this case.

    What happened?
    Did the addition of “…of X searched” mess this up somehow?

    I just tested:

    Do you use custom english.xml for changing some labels?
    If yes, it’s normal - there’s no way to manage it correctly in all supported languages.

    Yes.
    It’s okay; I understand.
    I think simply by removing the relevant lines entirely from english_customizable.xml I can go back to the way it was.
    For English that should work.



  • @Alan-Kilborn

    I think simply by removing the relevant lines entirely from english_customizable.xml I can go back to the way it was.

    Or you can just remove this entry from english_customizable.xml - the default one will be used.



  • @donho

    Yes, I think we just said the same thing in 2 different ways. :-)

    Good idea.
    I’ll find time to create an entry in https://npp-user-manual.org/docs/preferences/

    @donho

    I have version 7.8.6 64-bit on Win7.
    If I check auto-completion for words only for C keywords the completion is not working. If I check for functions and words, words completion is working.
    I’m missing something?



  • @Kantor-Zsolt

    from my understanding function refers to language keywords and methods where as words refers to what has been already typed.
    Example:

    int Foo()
    {
        return 1;
    }
    

    if having Function completion you would get a completion
    for int, return or long but not for Foo, where as if you use word completion you will get completion for int and Foo because
    those have been already typed but you won’t get a completion for long
    Does this make sense to you?

  • Is there a roadmap for Np++ 7.9 and v8?
