Notepad++ 7.9.2 RC



  • Hello, @don-ho, @deus-ex and All,

    @deus-ex, I cannot reproduce your issue. I’ve just tried and the link :

    https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download

    works, clicking at any location ( before or after the word download ) , both, with the two options :

    • Preferences... > Cloud & Link > Clickable Link Settings > Enable fullbox mode enabled

    • Preferences... > Cloud & Link > Clickable Link Settings > Enable fullbox mode disabled


    I have a Firefox browser ( version Firefox ESR 52.9.0, not updated cause XP ! )

    Notepad++ v7.9.2   (32-bit)
    Build time : Dec 25 2020 - 21:02:37
    Path : D:\@@\792\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : OFF
    Local Conf mode : ON
    OS Name : Microsoft Windows XP (32-bit) 
    OS Build : 2600.0
    Current ANSI codepage : 1252
    Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll 
    

    Best Regards,

    Thank you for joining the discussion. I’m on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, running NPP 64-bit, Firefox 64-bit v85 beta release stream.

    I just checked the setting you mentioned, it doesn’t make any difference for me if set to on or off, the described behavior remains the same. I also tried NPP without any plugin and no individual theme, but that doesn’t change the situation either.

    I just noticed that for URLs composed like the example below, clicking the part after the last dash won’t do anything, clicking anything before the last dash, including the last dash, opens the URL in your browser.

    Example:
    https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-developer

    Similar issue with dots (example below). Clicking the part after the last dot won’t work, everything before including the dot works.

    Example:
    https://notepad-plus-plus.org

    I have two separate installations of NPP that I can easily switch between, v7.9,1 and 7.9.2 RC. With NPP v7.9.1, the issues described are not present, all URLs are fully working as intended.



  • Hello, @don-ho, @deus-ex and All,

    @deus-ex :

    Incomprehensible ! I have done the same tests as before and, indeed, I confirm everything you say, namely :

    does not forward the URL :-((

    In all these cases the double-click just acts as a selection of the greatest range of characters between non-word characters, which would be identical to clicking on the same locations in the text below, where no link occur because of the missing leading letter h :

    ttps://notepad-plus-plus.org/download
    
    ttps://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-developer
    
    ttps://notepad-plus-plus.org
    

    Now, as soon as you add a / at the end of the links, everything works as expected, again !

    Cheers,

    guy038

    P.S. :

    As I still use N++ v7.8.5, while writing my previous post, I should have wrongly switched on this version for some tests !

    Clicking on the part download of    https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download

    Clicking on the part developer of    https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-developer

    Clicking on the part org of    https://notepad-plus-plus.org

    does not forward the URL

    For me, the first TWO do NOT work, but the last ONE works indeed (success when double-clicking the trailing org section). Here’s my info if it matters:

  • Hi, @don-ho, @deus-ex, @alan-kilborn and All,

    One more point :

    If we consider the wrong links of my previous post :

    ttps://notepad-plus-plus.org/download
    
    ttps://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-developer
    
    ttps://notepad-plus-plus.org
    
    • With the v7.9.2 and v7.9.1 versions these links are not considered as valid ( no highlighting ), which is expected !

    • With the v7.9 version and versions before, these links were considered as valid but, of course, not functional !


    @alan-kilborn :

    I redid the test with the v7.9.2 version and the link    https://notepad-plus-plus.org

    It still does not work, whether :

    • I use leading tabulation or space characters or not

    • I use the Word wrap option or not

    • I use the Show All Characters option or not

    It just selects the word org ! Adding a final / to that link does help and make the link functional ;-))

    Cheers,

    guy038

    P.S. :

    If I add the dot . as a word character in Preferences... > Delimiter > Word character list > Add your character as part of word, a double-click on part org of https://notepad-plus-plus.org, does not work, too and, then, selects the part plus.org !



  • Hello!

    If the folder %ProgramFiles%\Notepad++\functionList with xml files exists, the installation of Notepad++ 7.9.2 RC does not replace any existing xml files.

    Notepad++ v7.9.2   (64-bit)
    Build time : Dec 25 2020 - 20:53:05
    Path : C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe

    Isn’t that the desired behavior? I mean, if you’ve modified any of the files, you wouldn’t want the install to overwrite those mods, right?

    No, it should work as described in #9134 by donho:

    "The new behaviour of loading function list will be:

    1. For the installer package:
      Try to load from %APPDATA%\Notepad++\functionList, if it failed, then load from %PROGRAMFILES%\Notepad++\functionList.
      In this way, users can override function list in %APPDATA%\Notepad++\functionList\ manually. Otherwise, function list won’t be empty."

    I can reproduce it by double-clicking on “download”. It’s a regression definitely.
    Thank you for your report, I’ll try to fix it in the short term.



  • @deus-ex @Mr-Update
