  • Hello, @Don-Ho, and All,

    Waouuuu ! What an avalanche of fixes, improvements and new functionalities ! I have not yet downloaded N++ v7.9.1 RC and I don’t know the version number policy but I think this version could have been called v8.0 !

    Oh, I also noticed the time of your announcement : You’re very early ( around 5:30 am ), aren’t you ? Thanks you for your constant involvement with our beloved text editor !

    Best Regards,

    guy038

    Thank you @donho and @pnedev for fixing this.



  • #8833 seems to break all existing themes

    In addition, I cannot see how to set the margin background color from within the dialog.



  • @Ekopalypse said in Notepad++ 7.9.1 RC:

    I guess there needs to be “theme maintainers” like there are “localization” maintainers.

    I cannot see how to set the margin background color from within the dialog.

    Not a problem for me:

  • @Alan-Kilborn

    How could it be that I don’t have it?

    9b1f415b-7bba-48a3-b775-3b92798f6e0e-image.png



  • it is in stylers.xml

            <WidgetStyle name="Bookmark margin" styleID="0" bgColor="E0E0E0" />
    

    but why isn’t it loaded in the dialog??



  • another one is

    <WidgetStyle name="Fold active" styleID="0" fgColor="FF0000" />
    


  • @Ekopalypse said in Notepad++ 7.9.1 RC:

    but why isn’t it loaded in the dialog??

    If you’re using Obsidian as your previous picture seemed to indicate, you’ll need to add that Bookmark Margin to the Obsidian.xml them.

    @Alan-Kilborn

    I guess there needs to be “theme maintainers” like there are “localization” maintainers.

    Yes, I thought that myself too. I’ve made available my Obsidian theme - please note there are some changes to the default “global styles” in my version. I also added languages that were not originally in it and updated all the other languages to match the “WordStyle” changes reflected in the stylers.model.xml (as of a few months ago).

    Cheers.



  • @michael-vincent - the first one to demonstrate the issue, yes, obsidian.
    But the second pics are with default theme.



  • I’ve downloaded a fresh x64 portable and there I did see the two missing entries. Then I compared the previous one with the new one and haven’t
    found any differences, so I restarted the old one and now it appears there as well. Hmmm … strange.



  • @donho
    @pnedev

    Huge thanks for adding case insensitive lines sorting (Implement #4479). I ran several tests, the results were always as expected. Finally, this allows me to migrate to the 64-bit version of Notepad++ since I do not depend on the 32-bit plugin NppTextFX for case insensitive line sorting anymore.



  • @Ekopalypse

    I can confirm that the behavior of saving files has been changed

    FlushBuffersFile is used

    Thank @pnedev , he found the solution. Not me :)

    #8833 seems to break all existing themes

    Nice catch.
    It’s fixed in 7.9.1 RC2:

    Huge thanks for adding case insensitive lines sorting (Implement #4479).

    Thank @SCOTT SUMNER - it’s his implementation.

    @guy038

    You’re very early ( around 5:30 am ), aren’t you ?

    Rather very “late” :)
