Change or specify plugins directory or folder location
Trying to figure out if this can be configured aside from the default location (beside notepad++) and I was expecting that it will look into the same base directory when you set the command line
It also creates an extra plugins folder at
There are kindof two questions in one in this one, both with the answer “no, it’s not possible”.
First, it is not possible to define a different location for the plugin DLLs to go: plugin DLLs will always go in the
.\Plugins\PluginName\subfolder relative to the notepad++.exe, whether it’s an installation or a portable; whether it’s
-settingsDiror Cloud Directory.
-settingsDironly affects certain config files, as enumerated in this issue – where the person requested that
-settingsDirbe made more like a “profile” setting (to include all settings) rather than just affecting certain files. If other users, other than the original requestor or one of the “forum experts” like me were to chime in on requests like that, it might help change the priority of those requests. So if someone like you were to chime in that you want that feature, and that you want it to include reading the plugins\config directory from the
-settingsDiras well, it might increase the chances of that feature being implemented.
