    Does this happen for all files or only for specific ones?
    Can you provide a file which causes such a behavior?
    Or is this a random issue?



  • thank’s for your replay.
    it’s look like a random issue.
    i can’t really know for what files it’s can happen.



  • @eliran-shenhav

    could it be that the files in question share that these do have long lines?
    Or do these files contain binary data?

    Hi,
    no binary data, sometimes there is files with long lines (not always).

    Hard to say. Next time it happens I would note what file it was,
    how big it is, where located and check the content.
    Maybe you can find a pattern to help identify under which circumstances this happen. It may be that the disk is failing as well. (but then you should see events in the eventvwr that an ide port didn’t answer)
    Maybe give it a try and reset npp’s configuration by renaming the config.xml from the %APPDATA%\notepad++ directory.
    On next npp startup a default config.xml will be created.

  • same problem. The problem is not the “line wrap” - option. Long lines are the problem.
    For better reading of my logfile i assigned extension LOG to type SQL in %appdata%\notepad++\stylers.xml.
    After Deassigning LOG works fine, so that will be my workaround until this problem is fixed by a future notepad version. No colored keywords but freezing the editor ist gone.
