Modify shortcut menu entry executes HTMLTidy

When I press the Macro > Modify shortcut / Delete macro menu entry in Notepad++, HTMLTidy is executed on the current file, then I get a popup error dialog:

How to fix this problem?

I have never seen that when you hit the Macro > Modify Shortcut / Delete Macro menu entry that it runs a macro or that a plugin action is triggered; that doesn’t make much sense to me (unless maybe TextFX triggers any time the editor pane loses focus).
Other than a super-abundance of plugins, which may or may not be interacting together well, and other than still using the TextFX plugin even though it’s been years since it was supported and it hasn’t been updated to match the modern interface (including not using the newer Scintilla calls), an oddity that I see is that you are running in Admin mode.
If I were debugging this problem, I would try
- Exit Notepad++ and rerun not in Admin mode, and see if the problem still occurs
- Check permissions on
C:\winprg\Notepad++\plugins\NppTextFX\Config\tidy\HTMLTIDY.ERRand its parent-folder hierarchy, to make sure you have the ability to write that file, folder, etc.
- Disable all the plugins (
-noPlugincommand line option) and see if it behaves normally
- Disable most plugins (rename folders in the
C:\winprg\Notepad++\plugins\folder of all the ones you don’t want to load) so that you are trying just one or two plugins at a time – maybe it’s an interaction between them
But in general, selecting Macro > Modify Shortcut / Delete Macro should not have any side effects (all it should do is bring up the shortcut dialog on the macro tab)
