I’m sorry you are having difficulty with that. I am not sure whether your second post was meant to say, “nevermind, I got it working” (because it sure looks like you have it working), or whether you were showing a working version from some previous Notepad++ version. If it’s the latter, you will have to be more specific.
I just took a known-working UDL+autoCompletion custom pair of config files from v8.2, and copied those files into a portable v8.2.1 (and a portable v8.2.2-RC) instance. When I first tried to replicate, I wasn’t seeing any auto-completion (or specifically, Function Completion with Ctrl+Spacebar), and I thought I had replicated your problem in both. But I had closed Notepad++, and so when I went to get screenshots to add as evidence, they both started working the same as they did in v8.2 – so my simple UDL with an autoCompletion file with three keywords correctly shows me those three keywords when I Ctrl+Spacebar.
If you are still having difficulty with autoCompletion, you will need to give more details.
I don’t wish to discourage anyone but considering the number of issues being fixed or retriggered, should I be using latest versions or just stay on old version like before the x64 transition?
considering the number of issues being fixed or retriggered
What is this quantity you are talking about?
I am using 8.2.1 for days now; no apparent problems.
just stay on old version like before the x64 transition?
That is something you have to answer for yourself.
@alan-kilborn Ok. Quantity is the issues people report here since v 6.9.5. I am following up the community hence the question. I neither mean the things are not fixed(yes they are fixed) nor intend to disrespect the developer if that is what is concluded from my comment however most of the times I prefer “stability” over trying new features and updates. I am using this program for basic notepad tasks and code reading, nothing too complex and I prefer it as my default one always.
if you use Notepad++ as a replacement for Notepad without doing fancy things, you can always update.
I have never had any issues, since I too use Notepad++ in a similar way.
I had the same experience as Stefan, until I decided to involve myself in creating a UDL for my community’s language. I even had a screwed up install with my x64 being installed in the x32 directory on windows, etc, and the program always worked for the simple things I did, bar none. So if you don’t want the latest and greatest, don’t upgrade, but don’t be afraid to upgrade for your modest needs. Things like the recent testing of files 2GB in size will not affect your usage and if it does, the testers will most likely find it before it becomes a release. Other than the broken update program a few version ago, I’ve not had one problem with the NPP that I didn’t create myself with my language creation. :)
I do use some UDLs for data files of a software I am maintaining and also never had any issues.
It is the same for all kinds of software, an update or upgrade always has the risk to break something, this is why software vendors offer test releases.
If you like to make sure your use-case works, use the portable release for testing it.
It seems v8.2.1 is quite stable.
The auto-updater has been triggered for this release.
During the auto complete, the suggested words are listed in drop down. However, mouse click or keyboard navigation and selection using Enter key is not working. So, I had to downgrade to v8.2 to keep that auto-complete and keyboard navigation working.
