    I am not going to pay money to try to replicate someone else’s problem.

    Dark mode after restart

    With the various dark themes available (DarkModeDefault or any of the other dark-ish themes that are included by default with Notepad++), I was able to switch to the theme, verify it looks good, exit Notepad++, restart Notepad++, and see that the menu’s still look right, with spacing/etc.

    I don’t know of any setting in a theme that would affect that spacing, so I don’t know how your theme could be the culprit.

    Maybe you have a plugin that’s getting confused. Could you go to the ?-menu’s Debug Info and copy from that dialog and paste in your reply? It will show us what Plugins you have installed, and maybe give other clues.

    To quickly verify if it’s a plugin, exit out of Notepad++ and then try running with the -noPlugin command-line option, and see if the problem still exists – if it does when you run like that, then it’s definitely not a plugin. Also, you could download a portable/zip version of Notepad++ and unzip into a known folder (like on your desktop) and run from there – without changing any settings other than going to darkmode, and not adding any of your other plugins – and see if the portable copy has the same problem – if it works fine in the portable but not in your normal installation, then it’s probably a setting you have somewhere (either your custom theme, or some other setting).
