Adding color picker plugin
Dron last edited by
I want to add quick color picker plugin to npp.For this i tried all steps i see on google to do it.I downloaded npp color picker plugin from [sourceforge.com](link url)(a dll extension file),then i copy this file to *C:\program files(86)\Notepad++\plugins\color picker.dll
Then i open npp ,click on plugins but nothing appears.I restarted app nothing happens.
Then i click on settings in npp app ,click on import>import plugin(s) and guess what, nothing happens again.
So can anyone tell me detailed step i should follow to get a color picker from downloading the plugin to importing it?

depends which version of npp you are running.
Please post your debug-info from ? menu, the last menu item.

What are the dates on the steps?
Probably a bit ago.
Notepad++ has changed.
You now need to put a plugin in a folder with its same name:
Or better yet, use Plugins Admin
NOT Plugin Manager as you are likely to see in dated internet posts.
