Notepad++ v8.1.1 is available



  • I was in a hurry and the text is not clear.

    When I want to paste the text from the clipboard, the clipboard got replaced with the search string and I paste the wrong text.

    That doesn’t happen for me in v8.1.1.

    I wonder if you accidentally put the search text into the clipboard without realizing it (I often accidentally hit Ctrl+C when I meant to hit Ctrl+V because I’m not the world’s best touch-typist).

    If you have the Select to Clipboard plugin installed (32bit or 64bit), then the point of that plugin is to always put selected text in the clipboard, so that could be your culprit, if it’s installed.

    There is a feature in the Notepad++ Edit menu called Clipboard History – it will show you a list of the recent items that have been in the Windows clipboard, with the most recent at the top; it’s a basically-live update, so every time something new goes into the clipboard, that panel updates. So if you watch that panel, you can determine when exactly the clipboard changes from your long text to XXXXX, and maybe figure out what you were doing.

    If that doesn’t help you find the culprit, then this may be a longer debug process, and will get in the way of the quick v8.1.1-regression-reports that this Topic is for. If you still have problems, I would encourage you to go into the Help Wanted section of the Community Forum, and create a new post; give the same background, but also provide us with your ?-menu’s Debug Info, and explain the results of the experiments I’ve suggested above.

    This is not a question specific to 8.1.1.
    Please take your question to a new thread and keep this thread clear and focused on 8.1.1.
    Thanks.



  • Serious bug:

    Save does not seem to work to empty folder:
    Environment: Windows x64. Got 8.1 via update.
    Steps:

    1. Create new file via double-click on tab-bar
    2. Save (or Save-as)
    3. Select an empty folder (or create new one)
    4. Select “TXT” or any file

    Symptoms - File name part of the dialog is for some reason disabled or not reachable. This is a regression from 7.x.



  • @Bezymyannyj-Takoj ,

    I am sorry for your difficulty. As discussed with two other users starting a couple weeks ago and in another topic in the last few hours, you aren’t the only one who has had difficulty with getting files to save. It looks like it’s been happening at least in v8.1 and v8.1.1. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to replicate it, so it may take some effort to debug. Could you provide your exact ?-menu Debug Info – that will provide additional details about the exact circumstances of your Notepad++ environment.

    @donho, should this stay in this v8.1.1 thread, or should we create an official issue on github, since we’ve gotten multiple reports of this problem?



  • @Bezymyannyj-Takoj ,

    Can one of you that’s having difficulty with saving files see if the problem persists when using v8.1.2-RC?

    Yes, @Bezymyannyj-Takoj please create an issue in Github with complete info.

    I’m wondering if this is yet another problem with the “recent” change in open/save dialogs; the one that made Windows XP functionality obsolete?
