Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released



  • @donho Sorry, thanks!



  • Hi,
    I just noticed with the new 7.9.2 that I am unable to right-click copy from the search results window. All I seem to get in the clipboard buffer – that I can tell when I paste later – is a single blank line – at least I think that is what it is.

    Can anybody else confirm this is a regression bug? Here’s a picture which shows more detail about what I’m doing, and choosing from the menu. Sorry, for german language of the screenshot – that’s how I normally use NPP.

    Kind regards,
    The Raccoon

    Yes! I confirm!
    OMG how i missed it in testing RC.

    I just tested “Copy” & “Copy Selected line(s)” 2 commands, and I didn’t see any unnormal behaviour. Could you elaborate your unexpected behaviour by providing more information?

    Just change on Russian or German language.
    I think the problem is with localization of the Search Results Window (Line .1.2.4.etc)
    I will check it now!



  • Ok I found the problem. As I expected this “Line” more precisely its translation.
    If you change even one letter on any, it stops working.

    find-result-line-prefix  "Line"
    

    Pull request #9233





  • @donho @Artur-Harison @Raccoon-s-Hits

    I see that problem, but it is fixed for the next version so I guess I am late to that particular party.

    But… I noted something else because I wanted to set my “Line” text to something very different: Nothing at all.
    My thinking was why have to look at LineLineLineLine… all the way down the window. I know these are lines.

    I tried: <find-result-line-prefix value=""/>
    and that works to eliminate the “Line” text, but I get an extra space before the actual line number, can that be eliminated for this particular case?

    Here I show it, where I’ve used the yellow highlighter in the screenshot utility to mark what I mean:

    Ok, it is a small thing, and I can live with it, but just wanted to mention it. :-)

    1. Add context menu with “Copy link” ability. (Implement #2435)

    So, there must be some sort of super-secret way of making that work. In my slightly customized contextMenu.xml file (but nothing customized with the “Copy” command), I get this result when right-clicking a link:

    But if I unzip a fresh portable 7.9.2 and try the same test, I get:

    Any ideas on why there would be a difference?
    And any idea on what I could do to get it enabled on my setup?

    It’s done in source code and it’s a neat feature IMO.

    What are you trying to do exactly?



  • @donho said in Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released:

    Yes, I agree, and I’d like to be able to use it.

    What are you trying to do exactly?

    Ummm, I’m trying to use the “Copy Link” feature to copy some link text to the clipboard without having to select it first.

    In my screenshots the upper left corner of the popup menu boxes are the point at which I right-clicked on a link in the contextMenu.xml file; same spot in each screenshot, same file in each screenshot; different copies of N++ 7.9.2 in each screenshot:

    • The top screenshot is my normal portable N++, recently updated to 7.9.2.
    • The bottom screenshot is a freshly unzipped 7.9.2.

    I guess the answer could be: “it works fine since it works in the freshly unzipped portable”.
    But that doesn’t help me, and potentially others that don’t “start over” every time a new release happens.

    The question in shortest form is “When I right-click on a link, I don’t get the ability to ‘Copy link’ – what can I do, if anything, to make it a present and enabled context menu option?”

    Hmm… it should work.
    How did you upgrade your portable version to v7.9.2 then? From which version?



  • The following valid PowerShell statement doesn’t correctly match the parentheses. It can also mess up other valid bracket matching, but I haven’t figured out the right pattern yet.

    “$($s.replace(”’","’’"))"

    $s can be any valid string, with or without imbedded single quotes.



  • @donho said in Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released:

    From which version?

    7.9.1

    How did you upgrade your portable version to v7.9.2 then?

    I suppose like most people that use portable would, although there is no official procedure on how to do so. I typically use a compare utility to compare the portable .zip files, so 7.9.1 <-> 7.9.2 in this case, and make some notes about what has changed so that I can merge into the portable folder that I use daily.

    For 7.9.1 -> 7.92, the following is found:

    • functionList for php.xml is different (as I don’t use php, I just copied this new one over the older one in my “daily” portable)

    • several localizations xml files changed (as I don’t care about most, I copy the newer ones over the older ones); I do make notes about what changes happened in english.xml, so that I can update my english_customizable.xml in my “daily” portable

    • stylers.model.xml changed, so I note that change so that I can update my stylers.xml appropriately

    • DLLs and EXEs files: these are all just copy-overs from the newest version into my “daily” portable

    I can confirm that I see similar problems. However, it’s not a regression, since I see the same problem in v7.9.1.

    Since it’s not a regression, I branched the discussion to a new topic. @magoo104 , Please continue this discussion over there



  • I’m noticing the following “weirdness” with the new-in-7.9.2 URI customized schemes :

    a3984a33-8dfa-4c4b-9589-389567512ea3-image.png

    Note that the built-in file protocol has no problem underlining paths with either types of slashing, / or \.

    But with the customized foo protocol, it doesn’t want to underline paths with the most-typical “slashing”, that of Windows’ \.
    Curiously, it has no trouble with the underlining, as long as the first slash after the colon of the drive letter is a forward-slash (and subsequent slashes are of the backslash variety).



  • Hello, @don-ho, @alan-kilborn and All,

    @Alan-kilborn :

    I’m quite late in that discussion but I don’t really understand your problem with the new Copy link, in the Context menu !

    On a fresh portable v7.9.2 version with the default Context menu, without any customization :

    • If you previously moved the caret at any position of a link, even right before the first character ( generally the letter h of https?), but not right after the last character, and without any selection, you correctly see the entry Copy link, instead of Copy, in the Context menu

    • If you previously moved the caret at any position of a link, even right before the first character and that you selected some characters, the normal Copy entry is displayed and functional, in the Context menu

    • If you previously moved the caret at any position outside a link, without any selection the normal Copy entry is simply greyed in the Context menu. Logical !

    • If you previously moved the caret at any position outside a link, and did a selection of some characters, the normal Copy entry is displayed and functional, in the Context menu.

    So, the N++ behaviour, in these four cases, seems quite coherent !?

    Cheers,

  • @guy038
    My understanding is that the fresh portable is not the problem, Alan has the same results with it, but the daily used one is.



  • Hi, @don-ho, @alan-kilborn, @ekopalypse and All,

    BTW, Alan, is the thick red vertical bar, in your first screenshot, showing the contextMenu.xml file, your current caret ?

    If so, it’s logical that the copy menu is displayed in the contextual menu !

    BR
