Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released



  • @Artur-Harison said in Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released:

    Bug with field of Search Result #9341 which I already wrote in CR theme.
    Will this be fixed?

    I’ll take a look on it.



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

    There’s no way to satisfy all the custom URI’s rule, so it has to be generic. Currently custom URI follows URL’s pattern. What you see the exception of your foo:// is not accepted in URL scheme as well. Feel free to create an issue on Github Notepad++ if you think it’s a bug (for URL).

    I’m totally unsure what any of that means.
    Can someone “translate” it for me? :-)
    Meanwhile I will guess…

    It would be my hope and expectation that if Notepad++ considers something like file://w:\testing\test as a link and underlines it (and opens the file in the associated application and the file when double-clicked – AND IT DOES!) it would also do it – the underlining, not the opening – for the same argument for a custom “protocol” such as my foo://w:\testing\test.

    I can create an issue, but don’t want to waste effort if this is an unrealistic expectation. Thinking about it in light of what @donho said, maybe an issue I open should be a “counter-issue”, saying that Notepad++ should NOT underline/open file://w:\testing\test because backslashes in this are “not correct”?

    I can still do what I want with the custom protocols, but (ugh!) it means I would have to convert every Windows path I would ever use from:

    c:\myfolder\mysubfolder\myfile.txt

    to

    c:/myfolder/mysubfolder/myfile.txt

    in order to get it ( foo://c:/myfolder/mysubfolder/myfile.txt ) to show in Notepad++ as a link.
    I can make a macro to do that, but, again, ugh!, it means selecting a pathname and running the macro each time I need a pathname.

    Side note: Chrome has no issue if I put file://c:\myfolder\mysubfolder\myfile.txt into its address box and press Enter.

    But in the end, technically I don’t know if backslashes here are “spec” or not; I didn’t look it up, I just know which way I want it to work. :-)

    file:// is processed slightly differently than http(s) and customs schemes (with follow http rules) so that your example not works. This is how it was written by the author of the new URL parser (Uhf7). You can open an bug, if the changes are not big, it may take them into account (plus add new tests), who knows.

    Bassically on Windows for all urls/paths we can use \ or / by mixing them and it works (browsers also correct such url to correct format - try load such adress and check how it looks like).

    Sure. That’s when we are doing the sourcing. When something else is doing the sourcing (e.g. Notepad++), we typically always get \ – think of right-click-tab’s Full File Path to Clipboard.

    For what I want to in this circumstance, it is a (minor) stopper. I’ll be elaborating on exactly what I’m doing soon in another thread. Key to what I’m doing is Notepad++ underlining-as-link the “right” thing for me, scripting can take it from there. I don’t want to have to reinvent the wheel and do my own “underlining”.

    I think the file:// URI typically has another / to start with to indicate the root directory, fully qualified path. So from your examples, the actual URI should be:

    file:///w:\testing\test.txt
    file:///w:/testing/test.txt
    ...
    

    Typically, we “ignore” the leading / on Windows since the driver letter C: in this example acts like the root directory in linux operating systems. But, if we consider the “extra” / mandatory, then the foo:// example works for me:

    c8d8d419-82f4-4c04-a1a4-7248afb10b79-image.png

    See the first one doesn’t work using just the foo:// leader, but adding the extra / in the second example to indicate a file-like URI, it works. I’ve only added foo:// (with only 2 /'s to my URI custom schemes:

    Cheers.

    Ah, Michael to the rescue now. Thanks!
    Typing that third / is way less of a burden than converting all of the \ in the following path. (Note: it was truly only necessary to convert the one immediately after the colon of the drive letter, but that mixing of slashes was just too wacky to propagate through a bunch of data files)

    I’ve only added foo:// (with only 2 /'s to my URI custom schemes

    Which raises another point: in the box in the Preferences, is it correct to do foo:// or foo: alone? Maybe I don’t need the // but I am so used to seeing it as part of file:// or http:// with Notepad++ links that I just assumed… I suppose it will become more apparent as the experimentation goes on.

    If I’d have tried foo: without the // from the beginning, I wouldn’t have “whined”, because foo:w:\blah\blah.txt highlights as a link just fine! Drat!



  • @Alan-Kilborn said in Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released:

    Interesting. There are some URI’s that don’t use the // - I’m thinking mailto:user@domain.com so maybe foo: alone is fine for your use case. I think I pulled my extensive list from an issue or maybe the Notepad++ source code - I certainly didn’t type it all myself - that was cut and paste - from where, I can’t remember.

    Cheers.



  • @Michael-Vincent said in Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released:

    Are you talking about then contents of the URI customized schemes you showed? :

    36550a2a-85a2-415a-b833-333c1534c6ba-image.png

    That list?
    If so, then no, you didn’t do it: With the exception of the foo:// at the end, that is all default text content for that box in 7.9.2 !



  • @Alan-Kilborn said in Notepad++ v7.9.2 Released:

    Oh… :-) that makes sense.





  • Different behavior in 7.9.1 and 7.9.2

    Start Npp and open function list panel - close npp.
    Restart Npp and function list panel should open automatically.
    So far so good
    But when one selects Run->Open file in another instance then

    • in 7.9.1 it opens the file and the function list view
    • in 7.9.2 it opens only the file


  • V7.9.2 is TRASH! because notepad ++ still showed blank and empty space in bellow

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

    Fix this issue!

    What issue? You showed two screenshots, without any description of the problem you are having.

    To me, it looks like you have a .json file opened in Notepad++, and it seems to be highlighted as JSON. That’s working as designed.



  • @PeterJones Untitled3.jpg

    Look V7.9.1 and V7.9.2… in V7.9.2 showed empty space



  • @FREEMIUM

    could it be that you are referring to the setting
    Enable scrolling beyond last line ??

  • @Ekopalypse Thank you, yes it’s enabled and why is default this function enabled in v.7.9.2?

    It’s not. I just unzipped a fresh v7.9.2 portable, and that option defaulted to off:

  • IMO, people like @FREEMIUM , in the way they posted here, deserve zero response. :-(



  • @PeterJones Thanks for info
