  • @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



  • @donho I would like to create a bug report on github but need advice on the best way to word it.

    Like, @alan-kilborn, I have been using custom protocols. One of them is called np:// which runs Notepad++ on a file path. I have several hundred instances of np://c:\full\path\to\a\file on my system. I added np:// to my custom URI setting in npp and saw the same behavior that Alan reported.

    I experimented and found one workaround which that URI with three slashes work. np:///w:\testing\test.txt is underlined and works. The custom URI field is still set to np://

    As I’m seeing what I consider to be peculiar and inconsistent behavior with v7.9.2. I’d like to understand what’s happening, and ideally, why, before making a bug report.

    I created a test file using:

    md c:\full\path\to\a
    >c:\full\path\to\a\file echo Test file
    

    If I set my customized URI list to np: with no slashes then:

    np:c:\full\path\to\a\file	works
    np:/c:\full\path\to\a\file	works
    np://c:\full\path\to\a\file	Not underlined!
    np:///c:\full\path\to\a\file	works
    

    If I set my customized URI list to np:/ with one slash then:

    np:c:\full\path\to\a\file	Does not work as expected
    np:/c:\full\path\to\a\file	works
    np://c:\full\path\to\a\file	Not underlined!
    np:///c:\full\path\to\a\file	works
    

    If I set my customized URI list to np:// with two slashes then:

    np:c:\full\path\to\a\file	Does not work as expected
    np:/c:\full\path\to\a\file	Does not work as expected
    np://c:\full\path\to\a\file	Not underlined!
    np:///c:\full\path\to\a\file	works
    

    Once I’m at np:///c:\full\path\to\a\file then it does not seem to matter how many additional slashes I add after the np:///. All forms work.

    As np:/// works it will be an easier to use workaround than np://c:/full\path\to\a\file
    I have been using np://c:\... to reference the paths to things such as .bat files. I double click to open the file in Notepad++. If I want to run the file from a command prompt the full path is already there after the np:/// and does not need to be modified.

    My questions are:
    Why is np:// with two slashes seeming to be a special case that breaks the new URL parser?

    There seem to be two rather specific workarounds to using a custom URI with backslashes.
    np:///c:\full\path\to\a\file triple slash after the custom protocol or
    np://c:/full\path\to\a\file A forward slash after the second colon.
    Something like np://c:\full/path/to/a/file does not work. The slash after the second colon needs to either be a forward slash or you can use np:/// triple slash.
    What edge case(s) are we running into here?

    Why is file://c:\full\path\to\a\file accepted by the new URL parser? It’s underlined and works. It seems that file:// has its own parser and not the new one.



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

    Why is np:// with two slashes seeming to be a special case that breaks the new URL parser?

    I don’t think it is a special case. See above and here:

    "

    • A valid file URI must therefore begin with either file:/path, file:///path or file://hostname/path.
    • file://path (i.e. two slashes, without a hostname) is never correct, but is often used.*

    "

    You’re expecting to create a non-existent URL scheme and the parser does not recognize that. A custom scheme still takes the form:

    uri://host/file

    and since you’re going right to the file part (by using backslashes), the host part is missing, so the extra slash is expected in the “standard case” (where np://).

    Cheers.



  • @mkupper

    My needs are satisfied through the earlier discussion in this thread.
    My goals are similar to yours but I’m approaching it a bit differently.
    All I want N++ itself to do is underline something that it sees as a link, without making me do wacky slashing in paths – after that I can take it from there (in a Pythonscript).
    I’ll be publishing what I’m doing (and the script) in a future thread (I haven’t had time yet to finish my effort).
    I’m saying this for 2 reasons: a) I’m not going to be an ally with you on your specific complaint – of course, you didn’t ask me to be, and b) perhaps my future posting could meet your need as well.

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

    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

    Additional quirk in 7.9.2, if you now, after the above steps,
    go to Menu View->Function List, the function list window does open,
    but with minimum window size, probably 0.
    Must be manually enlarged.



  • (I’m not sure this is the right place to report this as it isn’t a bug with the Notepad++ version itself, please direct me to a more appropriate thread if there is one.)

    When using the version 7.9.2 64-bit installer, the option “Don’t use %APPDATA%” is greyed out and cannot be selected. I’ve opened the installer as administrator and restarted my PC, but to no avail.

    Of course one can work around this by using the portable version, but if this is intentional I’m wondering why the option is present in the first place? I prefer using the installer because it does some stuff for me I’d otherwise have to set up manually and was quite surprised to see this happen.

    This problem is already reported in issues #9341 and #9363.



  • @Google-User I would like to add to my post above, in case it’s relevant:
    This also happens with all installers starting from v7.9. that I have tested. (I believe I’ve tested them all but one might have slipped trough the cracks.) The option still works fine for the v7.8. installer.



  • the file cannot be saves Please check and revert

  • @Amarnath-Bichchal

    This occasionally happens to me as well, for no real reason that I can detect. I simply say “No” to that question and perform the “save” operation again. The second save has never failed.

    Is it different for you – can you never save the file if the “Save failed” box appears?

    For me, it is a bit annoying, and sure, I would like it to not happen, but I can deal with it (especially since I’ve never been able to come up with reproducible circumstances to make a bug report).



  • Hi there experts,

    I’m not sure if this is the right place to report this issue, if is not, please feel free to either delete or move the post (and sorry for any trouble it may cause you).

    So this is the thing, I have recentely installed this version (7.9.2)(as I got a new laptop) and this NPP doesn’t allow me to install the plugin ‘TextFX Characters’ as every time I try to install it I see a pop-up saying this:
    “The hash of plugin package is not correct…This plugin won’t be installed.”

    Does anyone experienced this problem with the new version? Or is this thanks to my despicable luck? Thanks in advance!

    Additional info: I’m using NPP 32-bit x86 and the OS is Windows 10.

    Additional quirk in 7.9.2, if you now, after the above steps,

    go to Menu View->Function List, the function list window does open,

    but with minimum window size, probably 0.

    It’s fixed here:
    https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/commit/67234d22697f054e2f3b6985a87195eb00744bcb

    On the other hands:

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

    It’s not a bug, but a feature (at least an intentional change of behaviour). Please see the change log #14:

    Fix docked panels appear with “-nosession” cmd line parameters. (Fix #8005)

    The fix will come with next version.



  • Encountered a small problem with the new ‘Bookmark margin’ background color feature. I navigated to Settings | Style Configurator - left “Default (stylers.xml)” alone, and looked for “Bookmark margin” between “Line number margin” and “Fold” - not there.

    After much searching through Windows 10 files and the NPP src, I found “stylers.xml” way down in C:/Users/Administrator/AppData/Roaming/Notepad++. Noticing that the date on “stylers.xml” was from May/2020, I looked inside and did not see the line for “Bookmark margin” there either. I needed to copy that line from “stylers.model.xml”, restart NPP - and all is now well.

    It seems that the update from 7.9.1 to 7.9.2 (and maybe earlier) does not update all the NPP files inside “C:/Users/Administrator/AppData/Roaming/Notepad++”. Easy fix once the problem has been found.

    I don’t know that that’s a “problem”.
    I believe the installer is cautious as to what it does, as it does not want to “blow away” any custom changes you’ve made, say to the color scheme.
    Apparently it isn’t “smart” enough to be able to merge in these sorts of changes automatically, leading one to have to do it manually.
    It’s a small price to pay – I wouldn’t want the devs to spend a lot of effort trying to manage all such things; I’d rather have them concentrate on real feature enhancement.
