Notepad++ 7.9.1 Released
thanks for your explanations. I am struggling to get this to work with User Defined Languages.
This specific thread (“Notepad++ 9.9.1 Released”) is really focused on pointing out bugs or regressions that are specific to v7.9.1 – and at this point, has really lived out its purpose. Questions of “how do I get feature X to work right” better go in the “Help Wanted” section: go to Help Wanted, and click on New Topic button.
There have actually been a couple of recent posts that go through the process:
What am I doing wrong?
The description of what you did seems right from a high-level, but you left out some important details – enough that it would take a crystal ball to help you at this point.
If the links I provided above don’t help you get it working, feel free to go to “Help Wanted” and click New Topic to create a new post. In it, make sure you provide us more information:
- post your ?-menu’s debug info (to make sure we know what version and plugins you have, which might be influencing things)
- screenshot of the UDL form where you assign the name and extension for your User Defined language
- example text embedded inside the result of the forum’s plain-text
- screenshot of the editor window showing that your active file has the right extension and is properly assocaited with your UDL (requires the Notepad++ window is wide enough that the status bar shows
User Defined Language File - ABCin the lower-left of the status bar)
- extract your exact
<association idtag from
</>plaintext (for example, if your quote above is accurate, maybe the space betwen the
"ABC.xml"is messing things up; doubtful, but maybe; exact quotes are better) – maybe even show it in context with some of the other
- extract your
Please remember: try what’s been suggested, and if you need more help, go to “Help Wanted” and click New Topic to create a new post with the requested details.

The new URL parser does not recognize custom protocols I have added to my system.
URI customized schemes will be in v7.9.2:

Which version of HexEditor.dll do you have? Because the older version broke with Notepad++ v7.9 and newer (see here, for example). You might want to go into the plugins directory, and delete/rename
HexEditor\HexEditor.dll, then re-run Notepad++. Once inside Notepad++, try running Plugins Admin and re-installing HexEditor, and see if that fixes it for you.
I can install HexEditor v7.9.8 without a crash/exception.
I doubt your issue has anything to do with what @ImSpecial described.
Also, you contradict yourself: you claim you installed v7.9.1-64bits, but the process information you quoted has the path for the 32bit application.
If you reboot, does the problem continue? If you uninstall v7.9.1, and go back to v7.9.0, does it also crash for you, or does it work?

I couldn’t find a place to report a bug so posting here. I hope that is correct.
I installed ver 7.9.1 over 7.9 and found when I went to the FIND function - the COUNT button was missing. It just had a blank space where it was supposed to be. All other buttons were in the usual place. I reverted back to 7.9 and the button is back.
Hope this helps.

The count button is there for me – and since such a wild regression wasn’t reported during any of the release candidates, or during the last nearly 2 months since v7.9.1 was released, I think it was probably a fluke occurrence for you.
I would suggest first downloading a portable Notepad++ v7.9.1, and running from there; I am guessing that you won’t see the problem. Then try re-installing v7.9.1 normally from the installer, and see if the problem repeats itself in the installed version. If things are fine, then it was a one-time fluke, and we’re glad it’s working for you.
If it does have the problem for you again after the re-install, open a new “Help Wanted” topic, include your ? menu Debug Info and a screenshot of the missing button, and we’ll help you in that new topic. (Make sure you also explain that you followed my directions, so if someone else reads the question there without the context here, they won’t ask you to repeat the experiment you already did.)

@PeterJones Must have been a one time weird thing. I reinstalled from download direct and it is fine. Thanks for all that you do!

Hi, Notepad++ v7.9.1 win10 desktop.
I use logitec m570 trackball and elecom trackball mice and the extra button functions have stopped working in the last couple of updates. Specifically I reprogram my forward/back extra buttons to be ctrl-C copy, and ctrl-V paste and these are not working in the latest updates. They work fine in all other apps and they used to work in notepad++ a month or so ago.
Is this a changed item or perhaps a plug-in update has disabled the extra buttons?
I re-installed Logitec setpoint (latest drivers…) and the elecom program and re-installed notepad++.
The advantage is I can select text and copy/paste from the mouse without right click, copy (fewer clicks…)
Now I need to right click, copy or shift to the keyboard ctrl-C.
Great program I have used since win98, many years. David
