Where did FingerText go?



  • After a recent update to NPP, finger text and all the rest of my plugins disappeared.
    Aaarg!! :-(

    The update menu item just has one item: “Open Update Folder”.

    What happened???

    How can I get my plugins back, with the data/configurations I had previously?

    What happened to the plugin manager?

    Did you mean Plugin menu and Open Plugins Folder

    What happened to the plugin manager?

    Plugin Manager hasn’t been supported since v7.6.3, years ago. What version were you using before your update?

    Something messed up in your upgrade, otherwise you would have Plugins Admin in the Plugins menu. How did you install the update?

    The plugins data is all there in %AppData%\Notepad++\plugins…

    If you really upgraded from v7.5.9 or earlier, you will need to move your plugin DLL files from the <installation>\plugins folder into subdirectories that match the DLL names. (So a.dll into …\plugins\a\a.dll)
