Notepad ++ 8.3.1 crashes and closes without warning
Hello, when I installed version 8.3 and 8.3.1, I noticed that my Notepad ++ crashes and closes when I edit a .txt file.
Could you please tell me if this is because of an installed extension? If so, which one?
Thanks in advance.

I don’t have this problem with version 8.2.1

Yep. You have a ton of plugins. And v8.3 and v8.3.1 upgraded the way that plugins interface with Notepad++… (it was even mentioned in the announcement posts which I just linked to). Unfortunately, that means that most plugins that worked with v8.2.1 and earlier need to be updated/recompiled by their individual maintainers and then you have to re-install (for most of them, it will have to be a manual re-install of the plugin, because the updated versions are not available from Plugins Admin yet). Some of the big-name plugins have been updated, but others aren’t as actively maintained, and you may have to fill out issues in each plugin’s issues-location and hope that the developer will fix it.
You can run
notepad++.exe -noPluginto disable all plugins, which should make v8.3.1 load properly. And you can load Notepad++ normally, but with the subdirectories in the
c:\program files\Notepad++\plugins\hierarchy renamed, and slowly re-enable plugins, figuring out which ones are working for you and which aren’t.
