Add the Icon to the toolbar

  • And where are these plugins?
    And where can these plugins be downloaded?

  • @Pan-Jan

    Well, the main way would be thru the Plugins menu in Notepad++.
    Choose Plugins Admin.

  • @Alan-Kilborn
    There are only a few icons here, where are the rest?

  • Hi, @pan-jan,

    I think that your toolbar’s icons are too big and hides the normal DSpellChek icon !

    So, go to Settings > Preferences...> General > Toolbar and select the Standard icons choice

    => On the right of the toolbar, you shoul see the DSpellCheck icon to toggle the spelling process !

    Best Regards,

    Now the icons are smaller and … nothing has changed

  • Hello @pan-jan,

    Your standard icons are quite weird !

    See mine on the picture below and the DSpellCheck icon, on the right, with the ABC indication !


    You do not even need the Customize Toolbar plugin :-)) You may also create a shortcut to enable/disable spelling :

    • Go to Settings > Shortcut Mapper... > Plugins

    • Double-click on line Spell Check Document Automatically and choose your shortcut

    Next the same icons

  • Hi, @pan-jan,

    As you installed the Customize Toolbar plugin, I suppose that some icons are absent, by default. You’ll have to add some of them to your current toolbar !

    Now, in Settings > Preferences...> General > Toolbar, under the box **Hide**, there 3 possibilities :

    • Small icons

    • Big icons

    • Standard icons

    Did you really select the Standard icons ?



  • These are the icons I can choose from

  • @pan-jan,

    Could you do a test, selecting the choice Standard icons ?

    Then stop and restart Notepad++ => You should see all the plugin’s icons on the right of the toolbar !



  • @guy038
    This is it.
    I have them all now.
    Thank you very much.

  • I would like to insert into the Toolbar an icon with …

    How to add icon to this bar …
    if she’s not here.

  • Hello @pan-jan and All,

    I just installed the last Unicode - x32 version of the Customize Toolbar plugin in N++ v7.8.8 from here : Toolbar v4.2/

    And, in the Customize Toolbar menu, I see two lines :

    • Help - Overview :


    • Help - Custom buttons :


    Sorry, I do not have time, presently, to investigate further on, in this matter. However, if this help is not enough for you, you could ask the plugin’s author, by e-mail, for additional information !

    Best Regards,

    Available buttons: Proper Case „Alt+U”… none

  • No entry:

  • Hi, @pan-jan and All,

    • Change the contents of the CustomizeToolbar.btn as below :
    Edit,Select All,,,custom-icon-1.bmp
    Edit,Convert Case to,Proper Case,,custom-icon-2.bmp
    • Save the modifications of CustomizeToolbar.btn

    • Stop and restart N++

    • As you can see, the first default hammer icon is colorized and works ( Select All )

    • However the second hammer icon remains grayed and does not seem to work :-((

    After some tests, I realized that this second hammer becomes active ONLY IF you select a tab with a normal selection in its contents. In this case, hitting the second hammer icon does apply the Proper Case feature to the selection !

    Indeed, if you select Edit > Convert Case to, you can see that the sub-menu is all grayed, if no selection has been done, previously !

    So, refer to the plugin’s author for possible fixes. May be this wrong behavior depends on of Notepad++, itself !

    BTW, in the meanwhile, simply do your selection and use the default Alt + U shortcut ! Easier, isn’t it ?.

    Since decades, I don’t click, anymore, on the Toolbar buttons for Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V, Ctrl + A, Ctrl + Z, Ctrl + Y and so on…, preferring the shortcuts !!!

    Best Regards,

    I can’t add the word with the letter “ą” to the dictionary or for Current Session

  • Hello, @pan-jan and All,

    Sorry for my late answer ! Initially, I did not see a good explanation ! One day, I realized that, may be, your dictionary file was probably ANSI encoded ! I verified my assertion and, indeed, it’s the cause of your problem !

    So, here is the road map :

    • Go to the folder ...\plugins\config\Hunspell

    • Back-up your lang.dic and lang.aff files ( One never knows ! )

    • Start Notepad++

    • Disable, temporarily, the DSpellCheck plugin

    • Open the two files lang.dic and lang.aff, from within N++

    • Change the first line of lang.aff with the command SET UTF-8

    • Verify, in the status bar, that its encoding is UTF-8 ( not UTF-8-BOM ! )

    • Save the modifications

    • Select the lang.dic tab ( Probably, this file is ANSI encoded )

    • Run the command Encoding > Convert to UTF-8 ( not convert to UTF-8-BOM ! )

    • After a little while, save the modifications of lang.dic

    • Now, close the two files lang.dic and lang.aff files

    • Enable, again, the DSpellCheck plugin

    => This time, if special words contain Unicode characters, with code-point over \x{00FF}, you should be able to add to the dictionary , in the lang.usr file

    Anyway, the method is self-explained in the dialog, below, and I suppose that you’ve found out the solution, by now !


    Best Regards
